Clear dark brown. Interesting take on a dunkel in that it is not overwhelming in any manner but overall just a bit plain. Flat and a bit thin with some carmel sweetness.

Draft at the brewery. A very exciting pour, dark brown with an off-white head and carbonation racing up the sides. The nose is something I could not place, but resembles butterscotch. Body is similar with some green tea and other astringent aspects. The carbonation is great, the body is just a bit thin.

Pours a dark amber and is still clear enough to see through. The head was gone instantly. Caramel and bready notes. Taste is barely bitter with a clean finish. Average but very refreshing.

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.

Pours medium brown with one finger head, leaving a crown with decent lacing.
Smells nutty at first, swirling releases a floral and hoppy scent.
Tastes semi-light with a taste tilted more toward malt, not much in the way of bitter. Great intro to craft.
Mouth is light to medium bodied with medium carbonation.
Drinkability is good, this is a semi light lager, easy to drink, slam, and session.

Tasted at the Otown throwdown. Dark amber color. Candy sugar and banana. Really like the carbonation, and sweet malts.

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.
