COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

ABUSEDGOAT (2489) - California, USA - SEP 18, 2005
Pours a very dark amber body. Aroma is earthy and chocolately but also caramel. Flavor is the same. Finishes extremely smooth, but almost feels watery. It avoids it because there’s complexity here. Good stuff.

larsga (7113) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2005
Big tan, creamy head over beautifully dark red/purple body. Aroma of very sweet malts, with notes of syrup and hay. Nice. The taste is again very sweet and malty, but is soon dominated by a smoky hay-like flavour, which lingers and fades. Subtle, yet complex, and very interesting. An excellent lager! (0.5l bottle in glass.)

snowtiger (106) - Brighton, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2005
The color is a very clear red/mohogany with a big off-white head. The aroma is dominated my malt, with toffee and roasty overtones. The tatse is similar, but has some chocolate a fruity tones as well. It still finsihes relatively dry with some nuttiness and bitterness in the aftertaste.

delmecum (87) - Western Illinois, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2005
A better Dunkel than any of the other I have tried. Malty with coffe overtones. I guess I’m just not a Dunkel kind of beer taster. They don’t make me want to finish the glass.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 9, 2005
Pours ruby red with a generous off tan head that laces the glass nicely throughout the sampling. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar, and pepper radiate from this one initially. As the beer settles, some nice mellow clove like qualities emerge. Taste is of roses, cherries, and some tangy oranges. As the beer warms up, some nice chocolatey nutty notes begin to emerge. Finish is grassey and a bit bitter but not overwhelming. Full tingy mouthfeel.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle. pours a clean, deep brown color. Smells of caramel malts. Real clean mouthfeel, lots of malty flavors and hints of chocolate and fruit. A bit nutty.

lamas (1532) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2005
500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A clear ruby pour with a smallish, bubbly tan head. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, grapes and soy sauce. Medium body. Lots of malts in the taste. Hints of chocolate and coffee. A little bit of grapes and nuts too. A dry, coffee-esque bitter finish.

ToXBoy (9) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2005 does not count
Poured a beautiful brown, No real head to speak of but lacing lasted. Malty slightest bit of smoke. Smooth malty taste sweet with a little to much fizz. But most enjoyable will try again.

CamdenD (1161) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 16, 2005
Very beautiful beer. Full and round and just nice. Long lingering aftertaste of almonds and toffee. Enjoyable and drinkable.
