An interesting - but strong - beer. To my mind its a very pleasant "burnt malt" taste. Dark brown verging on black with little head, but a very full flavour. Body is more largerish, but plenty of punch. LBC is a 50% state owned 50% Carlsberg jv.

Aroma is fruity and a bit fruit-sweet with a malty undertone. Pours a slightly hazy cinnamon- brown with a decent cream-colored head. Flavor is crisp, malty, slightly yeasty and just a little fruity with just a tiny bit of sweetness. Texture is rather smooth and fizzy, rather typical. Worth a try.

Bottle @ home, thanks vjl! Aroma is roasty malt, nutty, caramel. Very much like when steeping. Flavour is roasty malty, roasty clings on a bit. Pretty good considering.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bottled. Mild aroma, lightly grainy. Very clean. Decent body, only a touch of sweetness. No real off notes. A touch of chocolate. Not particularly flavorful, but very easy drinking.

Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Mystery bits in bottom of glass that may or may not be yeast. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Faint malty nose. Flavor reminds me of honey cough syrup. Far better than their Lager. $1.85 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Bottle@ManyTimes. Malty, bit sugary, tasty and flavourful Dunkel. I quite enjoyed this with a good meal.

Heathen (1458) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - DEC 11, 2010
THOUGHTS: Not bad, but not great either. Surprisingly cloying. The hops in this one were pretty much just there to keep this from being nauseatingly sweet. It was a bit one sided, but it went down fairly easily. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, very dark, copper to dark, orangey bronze with nice carbonation and a large to huge, rocky, off-white head that mostly, but slowly diminished leaving excellent lacing. The aroma had a bit of dark bread; hints of chocolate and coffee; and metallic hops. The initial flavor was sweet and slightly bitter; while the finish was rather to heavily sweet, lightly bitter and slightly sour with an average duration. There was caramel malt, a little roasted malt, hints of chocolate and coffee, slight metallic hops and some dark bread. The light to medium body was syrupy with rather fizzy carbonation and a fairly crisp and slightly astringent finish that get a little bit metallic as it warmed.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Toast and a touch of roasted malt on the nose. Gentle malt and a touch of roast. Slightly nutty, toast, more malt. Finishes with a slight sweetness and roasty malt. Decent and easy drinking. Pleasantly surprised.

Bottle at home. Clear dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly roasty, some sugary malts, molasses and licorice. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly sweet, quite roasty and a bit bready. Overall quite nice.
