3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at volo. cask days 2008. taps lovely brown with a thick tan head. the aroma is chewy malt with some bread and dark fruit. flavours are very malt driven but i found this to be a little thin and somewhat lacking in the flavour department. everything that was supposed to be there was but this brew just didnt wow like i was hoping it would. ill have to try a bigger serving of this and let it warm right up to really get a feel for the brew.

On draught at Bow and Arrow.
Very malty and sweet. Very different than it was prior to Cool brewing it. I like the new taste. Compares favorably to Munich dunkles. Better than many original dunkles I tried in Austria. Overall an excellent version.

On tap at the Magpie. Ruby-brown with great lacing. Lovely aroma of toast, dark roasted fruit, and a little chocolate. The flavour has chocolate, lots of caramel malt, roasted nuts, and enough hops at the end to make it interesting. Full body, nice carbonation.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Castle in Kitchener. Nice dark brown, translucent, decent white head. This beer was REALLY good. Loaded with cereal grains and malty amazingness. That quintessential dark lager dark bread quality you find in a lot of Dopplebocks, but light and smooth. Some toffe and caramel as well, but very mild. I really hope this one will be brewed more regularly now that the brewery has relocated. I like this even more than the Weiss. Top notch stuff, and a great example of style that is not often seen in our province. Dark bread in a glass of beer!

I tried this beer on May 16, 2008 at "C’est What Restaurant" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a dark reddish brown with a creamy tan coloured head. The aroma was sweet malt, roasted malt, some sugar, and a little hoppish tone. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is sweet and has a nutty character to it. An excellent beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[277-20070422] Tap @ Volo (Toronto, ON). Grainy beery aroma. Clear, deep red brown body with a short-lived foamy off-white head. Grainy flavour has cherry notes, medium booze and a sweet finish. Medium body. A bit heavy for a sunny patio but nice and flavourful.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at The Victory Café, Toronto - came dark brown, quite dark actually, with a thin and foamy off-white head. Lots of dark sweet malt in the aroma, roasty and nutty. Flavour is very smooth and full, with lots of nutty, earthy flavours and roasty malt all the way through. Malty, lighty dry hoppy finish provides some nice bitterness at the close. Very refreshing and a fine example of this style of lager. Very well made, expertly balanced.
