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.

Dark and interesting. I’m not a fan of the dark stuff, but this was an alright beer. Good texture, not too thick.

Very satisfying dark lager, richer and more complex than the Heineken Dark and Beck’s Dark that I order (and enjoy) in bars; unfortunately not available in those bars, but worth drinking when I find it.

Oakes (12627) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 14, 2001
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2003 Chestnut colour with creme brulee mousse. Aroma of chocolate, wood, and lots of earth. Predominantly earthy palate is sweetish, but balanced. Hints of smoke, caramel and brown sugar.

Sammys (428) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 30, 2001
Quite a bit more ’dunkel’ than other Germany-style ’dark lagers’ I’ve tried. Had a dark, albeit see-through brownish-ruby red color. This smelled like a bavarian lager all the way, and the flavor was exceptional while at the same time consistent with other examples of the style I’ve tried. However, the flavor was definitely more pronounced. Aftertaste was not overpowering, and lent more to the malts.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 18, 2001
UPDATED: APR 22, 2003 This the PERFECT beer to drink with brat/bockwurst. The smooth malt perfectly contrasts spicy sausage flavors. Unlike other dunkles, this one features almost a bock-like maltiness rather than the wheaty taste displayed in Franziskaner and that ilk. Not better, but different. A dark-beer lover's session beer.

opiate (199) - Sandy, Utah, USA - NOV 16, 2000
A superb beer. A good chocolate, roasty, grainy nose and flavor. When I’m in the mood for a ’good’ beer, this one always springs to mind. I think this would make an excellent ’gateway’ beer to bring a novice beer drinker into the world of good, dark, rich beers.
