4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a crystal clear, medium brown; the color of strong pekoe tea. Sweet smells of warm pumpernickel, waffles. Taste is toasty with definite notes of rye/pumpernickel. Sweet caramel and toffee on the swallow. Medium body. Smell of rye malt really picks up as it warms a bit. This is an awesome beer!
Definitely a euro-style dark lager and was not intended to be a Munich Dunkel. Style categories at this site are in serious need of correction/expansion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear dark amber in color with a creamy off-white head. Bready malty notes, hints of garden fruityness and biscuit in aroma. Biscuit and bready maltyness in taste. A bit of sweetness as well, but on the whole quite nice though. Soft mouthfeel. Dark bready malty finish.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear mahogany with copper notes, 3 finger loose frothy head dissipates quite fast. Malty sweet aroma has dark syrupy bread, licorice, alcohol, raisins. Medium body, dry, bit ash, light feel with low carbonation, medium long malty finish, dark fruits and brown sugar. Somehow this just does not inspire me. Not totally bad but lacks a lot of "it". Best part is ashy notes.
