When this beer was poured into my glass, it poured a large off-white head with fine-small bubbles. There was fizzy carbonation observed with this beer. The beer had excelent lacing. The body was clear and the hue was amber. The nose was malty and the flavor was somewhat bitter. The body is light and thin and the mouthfeel was smooth and thin. This is a very drinkable beer that goes down very easily. I hope to have the chance to drink this one again.

This brew poured a large head of finely sized creamy off white bubbles and a highly carbonated transparent amber colored body. It has a very nice malt aroma and a mildly fizzy mouthfeel. Its flavor is nice and smooth with notes of malt and caramel. It went down very easily and was flavorful, but did not have a realy strong flavor. I can't really agree with the low ratings of this brew. I liked it.

Nice dark brown color,medium sized head that had a pretty decent staying power.Malty sweet aroma with a very mild hop presence and a slight smokiness to it.The flavor was pretty decent,fairly sweet malty with a slight smokey attitude to this one.The after taste was ok,slight bitterness,faintly hopped,and sweet.The feel was pretty thin(watery) this isn't a real great brew but it was worth trying and definately interesting.

Dark brown color. Small to medium head. Aroma is malty and sweet. A medium bodied dunkel. Malts are sweet and fruity. Hops are very mild and a touch spicy. Its overly sweet and very one-dimensional It much better than the strong ale, but its still only just marginally drinkable. Mouthfeel is thin. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is very sweet.

madsberg (10592) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2003
Bottled: Amber coloured with a tiny beige head. Head dies quickly. Aroma is a little artificial. Starts out with coffeish but as the beer warms up it becomes more chocolatish. Flavour is very bland and a little waterish. Notes of chocolate and alcahol. Aftertaste is vague and uninteresting. Dull beer.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 My fairwell to Brooklyn beer. At least I had some beers packed so that I can alter my lasting impression. This wan’t BAD, but I sure had much higher hopes. The somewhat subdued flavors felt like they were at odds with each other. Another power struggle in a bottle? ________________________________ And now this and a few others have arrived in Texas. Found it more appealing this go around. Malty and much like a simple German dunkle (I suppose). Still not blowing my socks off, but if I were handed another I wouldn’t turn it down.

Dorwart (2409) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2003
Thin head with little carbonation. Aroma of aging meat? Great dark ruby red in color. Flavor is ok with fruit and a light sweet and sour taste. Finish is slightly bitter, slightly sour. An ok beer but leaves a lngering sour aftertaste.

I sthis a dunkel or a rauchbier? The smoky nose and flavor was less "meaty", but smoke was the dominate factor in this beer. It poured nice and dark...thick and heady. Strange sweetness in the middle, but nice and smotth at the end...like smoked caramel. It's an odd beer, stranger than the other two that I have here next to it.
