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.

Dermi (628) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2014
50 cl, bottled. Pours bubbling, clear red with a nice creamy wheat head. Aroma: Caramel, roasted malt, sugar. Taste: Noticeable sweetness, balanced bitterness. Malty flavours, some caramel. Sweet, yet quite balanced. Syrupy notes. Body: Light-medium body, some carbonation. Malty aftertaste. Not bad but probably won’t be buying again anytime soon.

superspak (2602) - Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
500 ml bottle into lager glass, best before 6/25/2014. Pours fairly crystal clear deep reddish copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, molasses, toffee, toast, brown bread, light chocolate, raisin, plum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast ester, and light hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, brown bread, light chocolate, raisin, plum, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/peppery bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, toast, toffee, brown bread, light chocolate, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; with very good robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean lager flavors as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice dunkel lager style. All around good robustness, balance, and complexity of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast ester, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Kavu (2233) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014
0,5l bottle from Alko, Hietalahti. Pours clear deep amber with a high off-white head. Aroma is full slightly roasted malts with some nuts and alcohol. Flavor is pretty similar with more of the alcohol. Tastes like much higher ABV, but it’s not entirely a bad thing. Decent.
