3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottled brew poured a large head of finely sized very light brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a fair lace. The body was transparent brown colored and carbonated. The aroma was nice with caramel malt and brown beer malt notes. The mouth feel was smooth slightly tingly and finished very mellow. It had a mild brown beer flavor that was malty and just a little thin.

[Portland International Beer Festival – Tap]
A dark brown brew with a minimal head. This had a strong flavor and a good malt balance. You can tell they took there time brewing this beer. The fruitiness was subtle yet noticeable. I liked this beer it was a good representative to the style.

Pours a darker brownish amber with a smaller off white head that left slight lacing. Aroma of malts, some caramel, maybe a slight hint of fruits but hard to pick out what. Flavor was also malty, maybe some cherry, some roast and even a slight bitterness. A bit thin and watery.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mahogany color with no head. Slight aroma of malt syrup and watery grain. The taste is a weird mix between being cloyingly sweet and the dead-dryness of a grainy lager. Nothing I’d get again

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a dark mahogany color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour dark malts with a hint of molasses. The flavor is sour dark malts with a lightly roasty element and an undertone of tangy molasses.

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.

This is nice. Surprisingly full flavored. Aroma has roasted malt and toasted bread. Dark brown color with low carbonation. Flavor is roasted grain. They did a good job with this. Great body, especially for the style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good stuff. I like this one so much better than the regular Dinkel Acker. The aroma has lots of caramel and malt but has some hops to balance. The appearance is a red-brown with a medium head that fades pretty quick. The flavor is sweet toasted malt and some nuttiness. The sweetness is well balanced with the bitterness in this one. The palate is think but the alcohol is bold enough to keep it from being too weak. The aftertaste is toffee like. Good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear caramel with a thin tan head. Aroma of toffee, brown sugar, nuts, but most noticeable the absence of skunk from a green bottle. Taste of malt and caramel. Low carbonation makes this bottle full of blah go down pretty easy.

12oz bottle. Translucent amber-brown color. Minimal soda-like head. I’d have to guess the bottle was old. Pungent, devolved dark malt tones. On the light side of medium bodied. Some toffee tones. Cheap Eastern-European dark beer. Probably way better fresh, certainly not one to age.
