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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Breeze Thru. Pours a clear reddish brown with faint carbonation and very little head. Aroma has spicy notes with caramel malt, plums and some earthy/barley old tavern-ness to it. Taste is of raisins, bread, sweet caramel. Somewhat light and a bit sour. Finishes short with a fizziness; sweet and tangy. Malt differences - is that the separation between this style and a vienna? It is an easy drinker, however, no need to revisit this style as it does not have the depth or richness I am looking for in flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark brown with red highlights, small off-white head. Dark lager aroma with lots of roast, a bit of smoke, and some very subtle nobel hops. The flavor is a tad sweet at first, with toasted malts, then, a burst of carbonation brings balancing hops that clean it all up. Crisp, almost dry finish with lingering toast. Pretty solid.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle. Dark amber pour with a smaller white head. Aroma is bready malts with some roastiness - very nice. Medium to lighter palate. Taste is also caramel malt, with a touch of roast and chocolate. Very enjoyable and easy drinking.

The aroma of this is malts and grainy. The flavor is malty with some grainy sweetness. Overall this was solid dunkel, easy to drink, not very complex but still very good.
