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.

villevav (245) - FINLAND - JAN 4, 2015
Miltein karmiininpunainen, nopeasti häipyvä vaahto. Maku alkaa täyteläisen maltaisena, keskiasteisesti humaloituna ja hieman alkoholin poltteisena ja kehittyy maltaisemmaksi humaloinnin häipyessä taka-alalle.

makenzi (39) - SLOVENIA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle 05L @ home; pours clear red-amber with light brown, good lacing head. Aroma is malty, caramely, toffee and floral. Taste is smooth, sweet caramel, licorice and just enough bitter to round up the palet. Medium body, medium carbonation. Overall, it’s a pleasent and drinkable, well balanced baltic bock.

Pours dark copper with little head. Has a kind of dark taste with syrup, some sweetness. Toasty malt, maybe a little too sweet for my tastes, but ok.

"a smooth, pretty tasty, kind of unassuming beer. not as good as their porter (6) but good enough to enjoy. a little lighter, and a little sweeter...

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells like artifical additive chemicals, alcohol and soy. Dark brown with pretty foam, a lot of malt and a lot of artificial tastes.
