tasted beer 1 week after bottling and it wasnt very good. Seemed to have a very high diacetyl aroma. After 2 weeks in fridge diacetyl aroma and taste are gone and the resulting beer is great. Munich and chocolate give this beer a great malty taste all the way through. Was hoping for a lower final gravity but the local homebrew shop doesn't give you a choice in DME. They just tell me it's "domestic" Uberlegen means superior in german (according to my german dictionary)
