3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle at an in-laws wedding. Pours a dark amber color with a creamy medium sized beige head. Nose has some caramel malt, some soapy notes and a light, but strange off note. Flavor is thin caramel, almost like caramel water, a light bready note, some grainy notes and light hops. Nothing too bad, just nothing very exciting either. At least I found a tick at a wedding.

Pint draught from brewpub. Appearance is dark copper color with quickly dissipating, beige head. Aroma is fairly mild with bread, caramel, and malty sweetness the main notes. Taste is similar with bready and caramel flavors, sweet malts, and next to zero bitterness. Palate is medium-bodied, nice and soft texture, soft carbonation, and a short, sweet finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Dark garnet; head dissipates quickly into utter nonexistence. Dark caramel and yeast aroma. Taste is sweet, caramel, bready; almost no bitterness at all in the finish. Medium thickness; a bit sticky on the lips. Reminds me of a dunkel; this beer is not my thing.

I had no idea there was a style here called American Dark Lager. 12oz bottle scooped up in Columbus. Cherry brown body, thin oily beige head. Sweet caramel chocolate aroma. This is a Dunkel all the way, or at least a Schwarzbier. Pretty decent, not mindblowing, sort of has a soapy bite to it for a lager. Overall pretty enjoyable offering.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. Deep amber color with a sticky thin beige head. Light sweet caramel nose. Sweet beer with some toasted grains, pit fruit and raisens. Dark brown sugar and a clean finish. Nothing wrong with this beer but not that interesting.

nice deep mahogany our with a large creamy tan head. The aroma is oily almost like a big Belgian.
The flavor is deep like belgian. There are honey and clove hints through out. Pretty good. A nice winter beer.
