UPDATED: SEP 14, 2005 Rerate, bottle, best by 22.08.05. Light brown. Really malty with notes of chocolate. A slight oxidation just adds deepness. Caramelly. A slight bitterness is also sensed. Not bad.

Sticky cardboard aroma, with some sour malt. . . Transparent purple red colour. Flavour seems burnt, sour and full of bad alcohol. . .finish with some sour hops. Missing the creamy malts that even a good dunkel puts forth. . .

slight smell of caramel; cloudy, medium-brown color; smooth taste with just a slight amount of bitterness; just a little less flavorful than I prefer

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.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2003
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 (10593) - Sřborg, 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.
