Sweet fruity aroma, mainly smells like hops. Taste is slightly cloying and sweet with a slightly bigger edge. This fades as a slow crescendo of peach flavor slowly builds. Finish is very nice and tasty, not juice-like or over fruity at all. Refreshing, and it hides its 8.9% ABV amazingly well.
Bottled 4/12/2022, tasted on 4/30/2022. Super fresh.
Aroma of mild chocolate and fresh peanuts mixed in. Interesting flavorful taste that dips in and out, hinting at strong flavors, then suddenly disappearing. Seems like it’s gonna settle in on a mild roast coffee flavor, then that, too, fades away. Very flavorful, and the dry finish leaves it not too heavy/sweet for another drink.
Canned 11/29/2021, tasted on 1/15/2022. Fresh, sweet hop aroma, very nice. Slightly sweet and puckering, but cleans off the palate quickly. Slight lingering hop fruitiness. Very nice and balanced. Full of fruity hop flavor, but no clinging aftertaste.
Nice aroma of dark malts mixed with a strong hop sweetness. String dark malt bite with a coffee like roastiness. Hop bitterness wipes the palate clean with a gusto, leaving the faintest remnants of sweet dark malts way in the background. Crisp and refreshing for such a dark beer.
Slightly sweet, clean malt aroma of Munich malt. Slightly crisp malt taste with a slight hop bite. Aftertaste is mild Munich malt sweetness. Very tasty, like halfway between a Dusseldorf Alt and an Oktoberfest.
Aroma is floral-sweet hops, with a sharp caramel malt smell. Taste is a level mix of floral hop flavors, moderate malt, and slightly dry crispness from the yeast. Finishes clean with mild balance again of all 3.
Blends much nicer, and more pleasant flavors as it warms. I’m not one for warm beer, I typically like it super cold. This one is definitely much better on the last half of the glass.
Nice even smell of dark malts, but not sweet. Clean crisp taste, that spreads out across the palate smoothly delivering waves of dark malts. Hops remain in background just to cut off any lingering malt flavors. Very clean and drinkable.
Aroma of sticky hop sweetness with hints of caramel malt. Clean palate taste of mild malt, goes down quite smoothly with mostly malt and a bit of yeast flavor. Way in the background is a minor hop bitterness. Very tasty.
Nice, broad, bright hop aroma. Taste has hop bite and then a mouthful of hop flavors and bitterness. Has a slight edge to the hoppiness, but not overpowering. Caramel malt sweetness in the background can be tasted in amongst the hop waves.
4.5 out of 5 stars.
