Half Pint poured into 8oz snifter @ Bier Stein

A - Pours a dark rust w/ 1 finger creamy beige head which fades to a cap and leaves good lacing. Fairly clear but slightly foggy.

S - Smell is somewhat muted. Light aromas of banana and clove, some chocolate and biscuits

T - Tastes are more pronounced, chocolate covered bananas, graham crackers, raisins, graininess, light roasty notes in finish, mocha.

M - Somewhat slick feeling, medium body with decent carbonation, but somewhat low for style, clean finish and silky smooth on the palate.

O - Decent dunkelwiesse. Not as much yeast character as I'd like, nose is muted. Head fades fast, but good flavor and drinkability.

Growler from The Growler Guys in Portland.

Pouring a dark crimson with a dense , light brown head with excellent retention and nice lacing. The nose is nice. A rich, soft, smooth banana bread character with dark caramel, burnt sugar, and a faint, soft, hop character, mildly earthy and minty, pairing really nicely with the malt backbone. The palate opens with a moderate banana and clove-like flavor, pairing really nicely with the burnt toast, cocoa, caramel and toffee notes. Clean and soft, this beer is drying on the finish with a fantastic melanoidin fullness. There's a touch of hop character, exceptional in how deft its touch is. Soft but firmly bitter, this beer is medium in body, creamy and soft in carbonation and is just...dreamy. Excellent stuff, highly recommended to any fan of the style.
