12 oz bottle pours a clear dark brown with small off-white head and a little lacing. Aroma is full of roasted malts, tree bark, walnut and bread. Medium body with average carbonation. Taste is slightly bitter with the nutty finish a dunkel should have.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aggressively smoky malt and considerable tree-bark bitterness with a mismatched palate that’s watery and fizzy like diet soda. Alcohol comes through in the finish. Adjuncty sweetness builds up in the mouth throughout the drink and sticks around.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear very dark brown with a one-finger head that leave no lacing. Dark, roasted malt predominates but accompanies some nutty and bready aromas as well with perhaps a touch of chocolate. Light herbal hops. Thin to medium body with fizzy carbonation. Medium finish of roasted malt and coffee with a little tobacco. This is pretty good.

Not much aroma to speak of, just some caramel malt. Taste is mostly malt as well. Some caramel and maybe a touch of coffee. It is a smooth drinker, just not very much going on.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich sweet dark grain odor. Dark amber with a long-lasting ivory head and spots of lace. This is a one-hit wonder, but a very good one. Taste begins ands ends with a full-bodied bitter caramel malt that is both light and satisfying. Very drinkable, not filling, consistent in flavor, a solid choice for sessioning. Recommended.
