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.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2005
Nice dark red color, little beige head. rich malty and caramel aroma, hints of nuts come up too with mild chocolate, smooth and rich aroma indeed. Chocolate stronger in flavor with malty caramel, ends with mildly dry mouthfeel. Roasted chocolate lasts in aftertaste. Could be fuller, still nice brew.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2005
Strong plum fruitiness in the toasty and sweet malty aroma. Clear brown body is topped by a creamy cover of light tan head. Fairly sweet and toasty with notes of bread, plums, chocolate and toffee. Gentle bitterness in the somewhat dry finish. Very clean and malty. Medium body with lucious, soft, creamy, texture that slides easily across the tongue with a gentle effervescence. Excellent! Bottle (Winooski Beverage Warehouse - Nov. 2004).

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Dark colored, nice aromas. The taste was fine, but nothing really stood out about it. Seemed somewhat weak and watered down. Dunkel is one of my favorite styles, but this beer didnt stand out. Not very much complexity, was hoping for more.

Sammy (11041) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Spice in dough aroma. Very smooth and creamy, high quality ingredients. Nice easy drink for lunch, a pint is a good serving measure. Sugar in there for fizz and sweetness. Touch of roast. Hops for some bitterness. Had a tap freshness to it.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Golden, reddish-brown. Lively fizz with a moderate off-white, bubbly head. Smells of rich caramel, toffee, coffee and chocolate malt. First impression is nice and light, refreshing but well rounded. Seems a little thin and it loses complexity as I work my way down my boot glass. A decent beer, but pretty unimpressive. I was hoping for a more noteworthy experience from this one.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - JAN 23, 2005
500ml bottle. Tasted in a 20oz lager glass. 47°. Pours dark red, almost brown. 1/2" of white head that leaves quickly. Aroma is all malt, sweet and nutty. Taste is sweetish malt, with some nuttiness, woodiness, and hints of coffee and fruit. The finish is of roasted malt. The mouthfeel is pretty good for this type of beer. I would love to drink this out of a huge stein in a German beer hall so that I could connect with my German roots. This is good, but probably not a beer style that I would generally drink.

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2005 Bottled, standard Euro-1/2liter, thanks Sammy. hard pour reveals a lovely ruby red dark lager complete with fluffy mocha cap and beautiful lacing. Well carbonated. Smells of burt treacle over ripe fruit. Front end is dominated with huge chewy malts wonderful decernment of coffee and sweet roasty bready malts...dried fruit notes like dates..finish is prolonged where the toasty sweety malt and dried fruit tastes converge into a coffee and toasted raisin bread flavor which slowly dries under the influence of the herbal-woodsy hops catching up on the palate in this malt pronounced, hop attenuated dunkel. This is dark lager as it should be...pretty much as close as you’ll get to sex in a lager glass.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2005
Pours clear deep amber with a short tawny soap head. Toasted malt with a touch of chocolate aroma. Mildly pepper, some chocolate and raw sugar. Bready malts and dull grapefruit. Some cotton candy and vanilla in the clean earthy finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2004
From the bottle, this poured a deep mahogany color with a short-lived fizzy white head. The aroma is of sweet malt and dried fruits. Medium bodied, this has rich, sweet malt flavors... sweet, but not cloyingly so. There are also hints of fruit and caramel. Nice dunkel.
