COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A German "Dunkel" (dark) brewed as a Lager with Two Row Malt, Munich Malt and some Roasted Malts. Spiced up with German Hops from the Hallertau and a German Lager Yeast gives this Brew a nice dunkel (dark) color and some Malt sweetness with a nice finish of balanced Hops and a little chocolaty taste for the finish.

Draught > Flying Saucer. OK but not great. Lots of chocolate flavor and a OK body on this one. Might help if this one were a tad bigger.

bleeng (1513) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - FEB 17, 2009
On tap at the Old Monk. Light brown and filtered. Malty nose. Taste is a bit harsh, with some malty notes. Overall just a plain beer with very few memorable moments.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2009
Tap @ Flying Saucer. Pours a lackluster tea brown with a slight beige head and an aroma of weak buttery nut and retarded red wine. Flavor is a vinuous licorice that ends up piercing the tongue briefly before subsiding. Average mouthfeel. Blah.

On tap at flying saucer. Pours a dark ruby color with a small frothy lght tan head. The aroma is roasted malt and dark fruit. Good sticky lacing on the glass. The taste a watery roasted malt with a sweet finish. A good dunkel.

A passable enough take on the style, but a bit thinnish. Think I will have one of their Winters next instead.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2010 (Draught) Pours a dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted nuts, roasted grain, light molasses, and cocoa. Flavor of caramel, roasted malts, raisins, nuts, and some chocolate.

kidmartinek (3640) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 10, 2008
A dark rootbeer colored beer with a smallish tan head Appears runny is consistency and looks praticaaly filtered, just dark and opaque from the color. Aroma is of rich earthen wheat malt and a bit af roastedness. Taste is rich and full with deep wheat and lightly roasted barley malt flavors. The mothfeel of the beer is very agreeable. It draws down with no lace and has a satisying finish thats much like the flavor with some coffee notes added and short-lived.

fly (1417) - austin, Tejas, Alabama, USA - DEC 5, 2008
Tap at Draught House. Too sweet and slightly undercarbonated. Caramel flavor rather than the normal roasted tones. Not all so terrible and my oldest enjoyed it without complaint.
