(Sampled bottle). Reddish brown colour, bread yeast and just a hint of coffee in the aroma. Flavour leaves you with the impression of drinking this beer in a bakery (this is not necessarily an insult to the beer - it’s probably an OK accompaniment with a few sandwiches or even Danish pastry). Drier than I expected. Not as good as the Einbecker Ur-Bock Dunkel (and not nearly as good as Aass Bock, which I enjoyed 1 hour earlier) - a bit watery, but still a drinkable dunkel that won’t offend anyone.

Dark-brown red with a creamy light beige head. Aroma is sweet (cherry and caramel) and roasty. Very sweet, even syrupy caramel flavor. Very mild -- no hops noticeable. Watery roasty cherry aftertaste.

jonas (5882) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 3, 2002
Beautifull red, but bad head retention. Toasted malt aroma and with a little bite in the (after)taste, quite similar to the Flensburger Dunkel, maybe a tad fuller.

bonvivant (168) - Smithfield, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2002
The color was right but the flavor was a little too bitter and the malts too subdued. OK overall but I prefer Kostritzer.

pilsnerrogge (2554) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2002
Dark brown with small head. Somewhat roasty aroma. Smoothly roasted, somewhat dry flavour. Somewhat bitter finish. You get the impression that it would be stronger than it really is.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2002
Watery and thin. Overall, a nice black lager but could use a bit of a malt kick-in-the-pants. Errs on the mild side.

ToadMan (559) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 20, 2002
A silky smooth beer, with a nice mix of malt/hops and a hint of chocolate. It has the makings of a great beer, but the taste is too mild. Leaves a slightly bitter finish.

I do catch a hint of Saaz in the nose, but there’s not much else going on here.

Dark amber lager look in this schwarzbier. First whiff is full of the typical pilsner smell. Fortunately, as the beer warms, a malt-molasses aroma predominates. This rich malt-molassesness dominates the flavor as well. A tingling sensation encompasses the mouth as the sharp maltness soaks in. This beer has a large barley-feel. Not bad, but this beer has a quality of staleness.
