On tap Mister Goodbar, Buffalo. Pours a reddish brown color with a light tan head. Aroma of fruity malt, light floral hops. Flavor was fruity, slightly nutty, light bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Pretty drinkable. Not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2005 On tap. Church Brew Works
Amber looking, small white head. Flavor was flowery, slight hoppy notes and slight bitterness, tasted slight nutty notes in the middle, not bad though, this brew is drinkable. This is the first time i’ve tasted this style, but i liked what it offered.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Short head that reduces quickly. Thin wisp of foam remains. Light roasted malt aroma with a bit of nuts and sweet tarts. Color is a dark amber. Slightly dry and roasty flavor with some bitterness. Some malts for body. Finish is dry and a little bitter. Typical weak dunkel. Nothing offensive though. A decent brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught and 22 oz bottle. Great dark pour with very little head. Nose is nutty, malty with just a touch of hop and cocoa. Taste immediately flows through a nice bitter cocoa, then coffee, then sweet toffee, then a little malt, then some hop bitterness, back to the bakers chocolate... this is well done stuff with little carb (fits the style well) and a medium body. Very good, especially after a 5 month cellaring in my basement.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2005 Pours a clear deep amber color with a small amount of white head. Aroma is sweet and caramely with hints of hops and fruits. Flavor is very well balanced and crisp: sweet nutty roasted malts followed by a slight subtle hop flavor. Overall, I found this beer to be very enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, copper lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Chocolate, red wine and a touch of caramel in the aroma. The flavor is malty, but perfectly balanced. Lightly chocolatey and caramelly with some grassy notes. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Short, chocolatey, bitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewery: This one was a copper color with some off-white head to it. It was fairly clear. The aroma was a bit thin: nothing bad to it just not much there. There were hints of sweetness and spices. The body was a bit of a medium with an OK but non-descript flavor. This just rates an OK.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light brown clear with no head. A light sweet start, not very malty. OK bitterness in the finish and after, though watery. An average dunkel.
