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.

500 ml bottle poured into pint glass. Appearance is dark ruby/brown with very thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is rich toffee and caramel with a slight plum scent as well. Taste is similar, though less strong and with a distinct lager taste. Smooth, lightly carbonated feel. I was expecting a bit more chocolate, but otherwise about what I expected. A good, though somewhat weak, beer.

explosivedog (195) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 24, 2016
On tap at Ayinger Speis und Trank. Aroma is very savoury, almost parmesan-esque. Pour is thick head on top of a dark translucent beer. Flavour is OK, with a little wood leading into the roasted malts. There’s a sharp finish I could do without.

Scopey (12248) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
Bottle at level 42, thanks ol’ dirty D. It pours clear rich red - brown with a medium beige head. The aroma is soft, malt-driven, brown bread, soft fruits, fruit cake, wood and leather. The taste is smooth, toasted brown bread, wood, leather, leaf, light spice, light charred note and a touch of caramel. Finish is dry and leafy. Medium body and soft, foamy carbonation. Decent Dunkel.

hershiser2 (2017) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2016
$3.59 bottle from Wine Warehouse. Pours a watered-down cola color with a large light brown head. I dd just shoot my nose up with flonaise, so my sense of smell may be off, but I’m getting caramels, honey, autumn leaves, light chocolate powder. Flavor is metallic caramel and honey mostly, something in there is burnt. It’s OK, but there’s also something in there I’m not loving. It’s the burnt whatever. Burnt sugar?
