Watery and flavorless. Which builds on its total lack of aroma. To be fair there was some very mild roasted malt flavors, but it was so watery it tasted like drinking a decent beer...underwater.

Tap @ Brewery during a Jazz Fest weekend. Dark mahogany color with a laced brown head. The chocolate and malts made for a nice full flavor but not too thick. The malty aftertaste was balanced and enjoyable.

Rootbeer brown. Creamy crosote, sweetish with a hazelnut and chocolate trail. Nice weight for New Orleans. Long roast bitter finish. Some sulphur in the backwash.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft... Clear, mahogany lager with a large, frothy, off-white head. Good retention and ink-blot lacing. The nose is fairly nondeScript, but holds some very light notes of chocolate. The flavor is well-bittered. Astringent with lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Leaves the mouth bone-dry.

This is a good beer, but it gets a slightly lower ranking because I don’t think it quite fits the style of a true dunkel. It is not over hopped, a good thing, but the use of chacolate malt is a little over powering for this style. Solid beer, good for drinking at the end of a meal, dry enough for oysters, but solid beer.

Draught at Crescent City Brewery, New Orleans.
Dark brown beer with a small tan head. Full aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Same in the flavor with some hops also. Nice and tasty.

a growler from the pub. pours black with a nice tan head thatingers for a bit. roast malt and chocolate aromas. chocolate and roast malt flavors. little hop bitterness butthe bitterness from the roast malt suffices for balance. full flavored but rather dull for a darker beer. dry enough for raw oysters at Cresent city but not exceptional.

Pretty close to Rød Tuborg. I was almost crying when I consumed this one. It was like the good old days in Denmark. NIce balance between the malt and the hops. Nice and bitter and sweet. Great beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
a very dark lager indeed-almost guiness color. aroma primarily of black malt. flavor is very dry, and over-balanced to the roasted notes. it does serve as a good food beer.
