1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Dark, no head, no lacing, thin, slightly metallic, no nose to speak of, mildly carbonated, flat taste with no evidence of what I would expect in a dunkel. Very disappointing.

Aroma of vanilla and roasted malt. Creamy texture on the palate. Moderate carbonation. Full bodied throughout. Finish is dry and pleasantly clean and bitter. Very nice brew.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin, fizzy head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Semi sweet malty flavor eventually fades to a somewhat bitter, cocoa finish. Watery texture with average carbonation. Good but expected a little more body, even for this style.

Draft at Bar 30 (from backlog). Pours a nice deep brown with a medium head. Slight aroma of grains and malt. Flavors are similar - thin and quickly dissipate. Grainy and thin mouthfeel. Not so good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a nice head, but it fizzles away pretty quickly. Thereís no lacing.
Smell: About what youíd expect from the smell of a malt-forward beer... extremely malty, with some slight spice. A generic kind of comment, but thatís really what it smells like.
Taste: Itís pleasant, but I wasnít expecting it to be so much like a lager. Being a lager, itís extremely drinkable, but ití has a somewhat watery consistency, and itís lacking big, bold flavor. Itís a tasty beer, and a dunkel that could actually be very refreshing on a hot summer day, if youíre craving a dark beer that isnít too heavy. In that instance, this would be an excellent beer. For its style, itís actually very quite good. As a whole though, itís nothing too special. It is probably the most drinkable dark lager beer that Iíve ever had though, so that counts for something.
