2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a medium brown color with a small white head. Very faint malt aroma. The flavor was bitter, nutty and dry with some roasted malt present as well. Actually this tasted a lot more like a brown ale to me than a dunkel. Nothing inspiring here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Rogueone. Pours a semi-opaque amberish light brown with a medium off-white head. Yeast and malt notes in the aroma with a tidbit of hop. Good hop and malt balance in the flavor with some yeast for kick, but unspectacular and finishes pretty thin.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a hazy dark amber color with a thin off-white head. Sweet and roasty malt aroma. Dark fruits and chocolate run underneath with a hint of smoke and raisins. The flavor started with toasted malt, toffee and some fruitiness. Notes of golden raisins and light chocolate at the tail. Semi-dry finish with a mild bitterness. The mouthfeel was lively and acidic.

Split a 12 oz bottle with friends. Poured a dark amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was some notes of roasted malts, some sweetness, touch of light chocolate. Flavor was a nice earthy hop character with some roasted malts, sweetness. Pretty easy to drink. Enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweetish dark malt aroma, without molasses. Woody, musty malting. Initially seems drier than it finishes out. Rather simple. Finishes sweet with a medium-light bitterness. Medium mouth.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 If pious means sacred or majestic, then this ain’t pious. However, a dark lager with a sweet aroma. Pretty brown but not dark brown in my steelers mug. OK flavor with a little syrup feel to it. Has a bitter finish but is not lasting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A mild beer on the whole. Attractive palate, perhaps inevitable with the malts, but not stunning by flavor.

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.
