From BandC. Reminds me of the early days of craft beer lots more flavor than the BMC stuff but still easy drinking. Not as complex as many others or as hoppy. However it was smooth and thirst quenching with some chocolatey malty flavor as well. Serving bottle ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours dark amber brown with off white head. Nose and taste of toasted chocolate malt, light roast malt, licorice, burnt grain and light grass. Lighter medium bodied.

Lemke10 (752) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 17, 2013
This pours a semi-cloudy amber color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is mostly malty with not much else that my nose could pick out. The flavor is rather simple with an average taste of grains and malt. There is a lingering grassy grain after taste.

EyeAmBaldman (187) - Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber. Not bitter, but does have a bit of a champagne aftertaste. A pretty good beer from a local brewer. Will look out for more from Big Muddy.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 7, 2013
12oz bottle (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 40°. Color is a deep clear brown with good carbonation and a soft, tight off white head. Aroma is faintly roasted with a grain and nut scent and a sour note in the back. It has a medium body and a crisp mouth feel. Flavor is toffee and light brown sugar on a malty body followed with a mild bitterness. After taste is clean with the sweet flavors turning somewhat fruity. Overall its a tasty brew, nice flavors and well balanced.

SamP01 (539) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Pours a clear dark amber with a medium short lived beige head. Aroma and taste is of dark malts and caramel flavors, yeast, mild fruity notes and hops bitterness on the end for balance. A medium body with moderate carbonation. The finish is sweet dark caramel malt, some grains, yeast and mild bitterness with a bit of a nutty ending. Overall good drinking brew.

gschrade (525) - Collinsville, USA - NOV 26, 2013
I had this at Reifschneider's. Pours amber with a white head. Taste chocolate, sweet. I thought this was so so. I would pass on this down the road. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nuplastikk (4269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 8, 2013
12oz bottle. Dulled orange-brown body. Thin, soapy off-white head. Medium bodied, easy drinking. Smooth brown sugary malt tones, rather one dimensional, but OK for what it is. Finishes up underwhelming, needs something more. OK I guess.

ContemplateBeer (1495) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Aroma: Light coffee, almonds, a little chocolate. Appearance: Dark caramel color with a ring of white head. Flavor: Matches the nose; coffee up front with some interesting roasty notes for a Dunkel; almonds come out toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, lingering finish. Overall: Solid, interesting Dunkel.

wlajwl (3743) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Aroma is dryish/nutty malts and raspberries. The flavor is slightly nutty malts, fruit/raspberries and a tart/slightly sour finish. A mix of dunkelweizen and amber ale, not exceptional but decent overall.

sharkbcr (98) - Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Minimal head, slight malt aroma and brown color. Taste is slightly malty sweet with not much of a finish. Not much going for this beer.
