Hand bottle… Clear, very dark, mahogany lager with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nutty aroma presents pistachios and almonds intermingled with mild notes of chocolate and coffee. Light to medium-bodied and mildly creamy with gentle carbonation. The well-balanced flavor provides a modest note of chocolate and a splash of espresso. A bit thin. Crisp, watery, refreshing finish. This must be the lager equivalent of a brown ale. Thanks to ericandersnavy for providing the large sample!

On tap. Pours a dark brown near black body with a smallish, thick light brown head. Good lacing left behind. Aroma of nuts, toasted malts. Taste is burnt malts and some chocolate. Light bubbles and a creamy mouthfeel. Glad to see a North Texas craft beer but there wheat/hefe is much better.

deyholla (6483) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a very hazy brown with a slight amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is mainly notes of dark grains and dark bread. Flavor has the same dark grains and dark bread notes with a hint of bitter coffee underlying.

Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, mild coffee, dark chocolate and mild bitterness. The flavour is almost milky stout like. Roasted malt, mild milky sweetness, mild coffee, dark chocolate and some mild balancing hops. Very balanced and tasty.

5000 (6180) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle:   Deep burnt brown sugar, small to moderate frothy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Sweet roasted malt nose.   Also bready in the dark bread variety.   Smooth, roasty, very light lactose like sweetness.   Middle of road Dunkel, but without much to criticize.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Clean finish, light, a bit pedestrian overall but decent.   A bit of chocolate or cocoa as well on the finish.   Thanks Bill!

On tap at the Holy Grail Pub. The beer pours a dark brownish-red color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of toffee and caramel malts with a little bit of chocolate malt mixed in. The flavor is full of chocolate and darker malts with a little bit of smoke character also coming through. The beer is pretty sweet due to all of the malts. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
