Bitterhop and burned colormalt, slight soapyness though.
Dark chestnut brown, ok head.
Chokolaty and burned tastenotes. I like the agressive bittering hops that go with it.
Nic bubbly mouthfeel and a bitter and burned aftertaste.

So they say take a Bayer at the first sign of a headache, but my head still hurts and I've drunk the whole thing! OK, if you're not from the US, you won't get that joke. Sipping this in a can as I type and it's a touch more bitter than I'd have liked. However, I'm a fan of dunkels and this is very malty and overall quite pleasant. Could do with less hops.

Beautiful ruby colour. Rich head, good lacing; looks great! Malty aroma. Wellbalanced roastiness. Very drinkable.

Dark flavor and heavier than the weak lager, but not a great beer.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2003 Nothing like tapping some ass. This was a really dark brew, and it had some deep chocolate coffee flavor to it. Damn good though, very damn good

Didn’t enjoy this one as much as the pilsener they have.It was definately malty in aroma and sweeter then i expected it to be,with a fairly smooth finish.Not bad but i think my money is better spent on something else.

Can. A smooth brown color with a laced off-white head. Dark grainy malt aroma with some caramel and sweet corn. Sweet malty flavors rule this beer. Not bad. Fairly light and simple.

Can, pretty good. Dark sweet malt aroma and flavor. Malt has nice texture, roasty as well as sweet. Hops are muted. Solid dunkel.

(Can)Deep garnet color, generous beige head and decent lace, nose is malt, slight earth tones. Front is malt and slightly sweet, the top is thin, the finish has a nice hop presence, acidic, dry, light to moderate carbonation, drinkable, but nothing to get excited about.
