3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown with a light brown head and decent lacing. Nose is surprisingly pleasant with light roastiness, chocolate, wheat, and a touch of hops. Dark chocolate and roasted grain continue into the flavor, with a quick burst of hops on the front. FInish is quick and dry. Not bad for a low alcohol dunkler in an aluminum can.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at The Beerhive, Salt Lake City, UT. Near black, small head. Caramel and slight hay in he nose. Mid dry with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Caramel, cocoa salt and grain, fairly low bitterness. Like a cleaner, drier interpretation of a dark Czech 14 degree beer. Pretty good!

Draft at brewery, late summer ’09: Black with brown highlights. Roasty-toasty with chocolate notes. Balanced bitterness. Quite a bit of flavor in this "3.2." Easy to drink, too.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Re-rate: the first time I had this at the Bayou, I wasn’t much of a fan. I had it on tap at the brewery today and was blown away! Pours a very dark chestnut color with a huge foamy beige head. The aroma is excellent; rich malts, roasted chocolate, light hops. The flavor was great; nutty, bready malts, light chocolate, roasted flavors like a Stout but with all the goodness of a Bock. Excellent. I was amazed how beautiful the pour was and how good this tasted. My original rating was off of a old or bad batch. Very nice.

Great Utah Beer Run – Summer 2007
On Tap – Deep rich aroma with a dark brown color with a thin head. Dark malts where tasted through out the beer with a slight fruity essence. Very robust for a light brewed beer due to Utah Laws. Good drinking beer very dry finish a great beer for the night.

on tap-pours a tan head and dark mahogany color. Aroma is dark fruit, dark malt-some sweet/caramel. Taste is roasty, chocolate/coffee/caramel, dark fruit, secondary hops bite. Finishes with coffee aftertaste, close to a schwarzbier. Occasional. OK carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Draft jar at MacCools in Layton, UT. Brown-black brew with 2 finger head, nice faint hop aroma. Finely balanced taste, with slight bitter finish. Nothing harsh, just smooth and slightly dry. Nice beer. Excellent job of working with (around?) Utah’s weird laws (I believe by law this beer is max 4% ABV).
