500 ml bottle just slightly past the declared BB date (06. 2012). Dark coppery-brown body with garnet tint and good clarity gets overlain by rather thin light-tan head that dissipates. Sweet aroma of caramel, chocolate, bread crust and nutty notes transfers to the flavor. The beer that lacks any inappropriate intense roasted flavors starts malty but never gets cloying and finishes dry with hop-bitterness and mild nutty aftertaste.
Creamy with sufficient carbonation teasing the palate. Very good.

Served on tap in the Augustiner-Brau Beer Hall, Munich.

A - CLear, deep brown. Suprisingly small amount oh head, with little retention and some lacing.

S - Toasted malty, cereal grains, chocolate and hops.

T- Sweet, toasted malt balanced with bitter hops and hints of chocolate and toasted nuts.

M- medium bodied and medium carbonation.

D - Delicious beer. Worth having next time I'm in Munich.

Appearance: Dark amber color, verging on black, with a modest amount of sediment. Small but thick and sturdy cream-colored head and excellent glass-coating lace, with faint carbonation.

Aroma: Pronounced aromas of coffee, molasses, earthy notes, sweet alcohol, and lesser toasted malt.

Taste: Begins with slight carbonation that gently flows along the tongue, followed by caramel, molasses, and quite distinct, warming alcohol. Finishes a bit dry with mild lingering hops.

Mouth feel: Smooth and velvety, quite excellent.

Drinkability/notes: An excellent beer, it whispers quality with every taste. Due to its rich character, it seems an ideal candidate for a dessert beer. It would also be quite pleasing on a dark and cold winter's day. A beer to be sipped and savored.
