Clear, amber color with white head. Aroma has yeast esters resembling weissbier or dunkelweizen. Taste is slightly tart at first with some toasted malt, continues with overripe banana. Finish is quite dry and astringent. Light body with low carbonation. Quite interesting but not really well put together.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #86 (Mar 2014):

Fruity, Toasty, Malty, Yeast

We’ve got a lively one here. Big “psst” when we cracked the swing-top open, with a healthy dose of foam all around. One big malt bomb, with a lovely apple fruitiness and fresh yeasty tone. Comes off like an Altbier, but not your typical German beer. Tasty nonetheless.

appearance: Beautiful color a rich brown that just screams BEER!!

smell: Oh so sweet almost candy like a bit over powering, knocks it down significantly

taste: Bit on the sweet side but I cannot complain too much. A caramel taste that really says something nice about the beer overall

mouthfeel: A bit sticky but not so much as to bring the brew down too far. A bit too stout for my pallet personally

overall: Not a bad brew however it taste like a desert not necessarily a bar beer

Dampfbier, labeled as being a steam beer, barley ale from Bavaria, pours a copper color with a thick white head from a brown half liter flip top bottle. The aroma is kind of sweet with a touch of spicy hop. The flavor is also kind of sweet with a caramel flavor which hits after some spicy hops. This beer is somewhat light bodied and goes down easily. Interesting, I see it's classified as an altbier, I'm not sure what it is, but it's decent.

Half litre flip-top bottle, poured into pint glass. Amber colour, hazy, large foamy off white head. Retention was outstanding. Aroma was cranberry, malt and dark chocolate, really had to think of a Dubbel or Doppelbock. Tasted cranberry, malt, dark chocolate and molasses. Only drawback was that it was slightly watery. Hints of slightly smokey malt in the finish. Smooth texture, decent carbonation, slightly heavy body but it worked. Only the fact that it was slightly watery held it back from being truly outstanding.

A German barley ala stem brewed beer...interesting.Poured into a becker a a clear copper color with a nicely formed fluffy one finger slight off white head that settles into a thick frothy mass.Wow alot of fruit and heavy caramel in the nose,it's very altbier-like but amped up a little.Alot of caramel and fruit up front on the palate but it dries out nicely about midway thru and into the finish.Not what I was expecting but honestly I didn't know what to expect,I really liked it.

Pours a big head of fluffy foam. Colour is a nice coppery, medium/dark brown. Nice film and lacing.

Aroma has a nice thick boozy maltiness. A bit of a banana note with the fruitiness. Altogether quite pleasant and balanced.

Taste has some initial malt with a defined crisp fruity edge. Mild sourness. Comes in with a bit more acidity later. Predominated by thick roasty malts, and some apples. Fairly straightforward, and started pretty bland, but developed more character gradually.

Mouthfeel is okay, a bit on the thin side. Carbonation is pretty light, drinkability is pretty okay.

Definitely different. Good example, this beer is fine, but not enticing enough to really go buy more. Refreshing and crisp but taste is a bit bland and straightforward. Light in body with a good roast malt profile. Good experience.
