Clear dark red with no head. Caramel is dominant and reminds me a little of a scotch ale. Chocolate and spicy notes from roasted grain in the aroma and middle. Minimal hop presence, maybe some spice. Clean sweet finish. Not a style I usually go for, but a very nice beer. The chocolate and spice do it for me.

16 oz. can thanks to Skyview for the opportunity. Dark born with some crimson around the edges. Lasting head retention. Aroma is light chocolate, roasted nuts and hints of a fruity hop.

Flavor is much the same as the aroma with a light lager yeast in the main body. Roasted nuts, hints of chocolate and toasted grain. Hints of cola and caramel. Body is perfect for the style, solid medium and easy to drink a large amount of. Finish has a mild lingering roasted grain note. I killed the 16 oz. very easily. Damn nice lager!

[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewery. Clear and bright orange in color. Not much head to speak of, but nice lacing is evident in the glass. Toasted bread and light alcohol in the nose. Toffee, grassy hops, hints of alcohol and sweet grain in the flavor. Better mouthfeel than expected after trying their other beers. This is a pretty good one.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Poured a dark brown colour with a full sized tan head. Aromas of raisins, biscuit malt, brown sugar, dark chocolate and subtle hops on the nose. Mouthfeel is very smooth, rich in many flavors- caramel, bread, and toffee. Finishes with just a touch of soft bitter hops.

[Growler, thanks Skyview!] Pours dark brown with a very light tan head. Aroma is a really unusual toasted malt, and some chocolate. Taste is the same with what I believe was some wheat also present. Medium-thin mouthfeel with a long finish. A pretty solid beer.

Growler courtesy of Skyview. Dark brown color with a medium head. Chocolate aroma. Chalky taste. Lots of chocolate and dry grains. Almost feels gritty from the grain. Very full body. Quite good.

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Just added today! On draught at the brewery’s taproom in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark reddish amber brew with a creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates to a fine film and off-white ring. Aroma of sweetened caramel malt, a nice balance of grassy and citrus hops, a touch of raisin and some light brown sugar. Taste is medium to full bodied, light carbonation with flavors of sweet caramel malt, a touch of toffee and some metallic alcohol presence. Finish is semi-sweet, very malty that hides much of the hop bitterness with a nice alcohol warmth added. Though this beer is considered as a dunkler bock, this beer has a personality that is almost in the doppelbock category.
