This is a nice dunkel. Dark, medium brown, it has a smallish off-white head steadily shrinking to a wispy top. The smell is sweet brown bread, toast, leaves, hay, hint of pine. The taste is dryish with toasted crust, leaves, hints of cola and root beer, a bit zesty, clean, very pleasant, but still a little on the bland side, yet very drinkable.

<b>11-Sep-08</b> <i>(12-oz bottle)</i> This is a bottle I’ve had in the fridge for literally a year or more, just never got around to opening it, so these notes are just for the sake of observation, and the actual numbers won’t be changed. If my previous notes are to be trusted, there seems to be a lot more chocolate in the flavor now, especially in the finish which is actually quite chocolaty and mildly earthy. The malts are mildly toasty, slightly roasty, only lightly sweet, and show no real signs of caramel. The nose is toasty and grainy with modest signs of oxidation. Body is medium. The moderate carbonation is soft on the palate. Light-brown in color with excellent clarity, and capped by over half an inch of light-tan head that recedes to a wide ring after several minutes. I can’t say that this beer is better now, although the development of chocolate is interesting, but really, for a style that should be consumed fairly quickly, I think this has held up remarkably well.

<b>09-Nov-05</b> <i>(12-oz bottle: Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)</i> Though this isn’t a great example, I generally love the dark malty beers from Germany. Lots of worty malt flavor, caramely, mildly sweet, perhaps a little nutty, and with a seemingly very mild contribution from hops. The malt flavor is definitely tasty, but the flavor lacks punch and disappears too quickly in the short-lived finish. And the thin body is the main problem with this beer, though carbonation is nice and it’s pretty easy on the palate. Malty nose that smells malty like wort but isn’t especially aromatic. Ruddy brown and fully clear, the beer is capped by an inch-tall tan head that gradually settles to a wide ring. Despite the flaws, I still find this to be a pretty enjoyable beer. (6, 3, 7, 3, 14 = 3.3)

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle best i’ve had from this company. Pours a light brown body with some malty caramel aromas. A little like a bock but more like a pils. Not bad for shop rite.

Quake1028 (633) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2008
Draught at Schnitzelhaus Tampa. Cola brown body with a smallish white head. Dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Nose of nutty bread, caramel, molasses, chocolate and malt. Flavor profile carries over all of that, with the focus on the malts and nutty notes. Pretty damn tasty beer, actually, and quite a bit underrated in my books. Medium bodied, could use a little more heft but probably pretty true to style. Finish is medium-long, nuts, caramel and sweet malts play out. Surprising.

dwyerpg (4486) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 13, 2008
A fairly rich aroma with a bit of molasses. Quite light and easy, but has a good sweeness in the finish, maybe a hint of chocolate. Good stuff.

MrBunn (2438) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2008
Bottle. Pours a brown with a frothy head and aromas of sweet malt and grain dust. Flavor is toffee and sweet malt with touches of dark fruit, but sits short on complexity.

Very deliscious, it was a little sweet and heavy. I like the hoppy flavour and the brown colour. A little alcoholic.
