3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Best by 2/6/11) Smooth, chocolaty, and malty from the front of the palate through the finish. Clean and well made.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark chestnut color. The head billows with a creamy, two-finger pale yellow shade. Some lacing is left behind when the head recedes.
S: I notice a decent amount of dry chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, hazelnut, and lager yeast. Pretty damn solid for a basic dark lager.
T: I like the initial chocolate flavors here. Everything after that (the transition to more caramel and lager yeast flavors on the back end) isn’t as interesting, unfortunately.
M: It finishes a bit too sweetly for me. However, it does feature good crispness and carbonation (i.e. not too overdone or limp). Decent drinkability.
O: A simple dark lager that gets the job done, but not in an interesting or flashy manner. Not bad, just simplistic to a fault.

This wasn’t bad. It had a musty roasted aroma. Pours pretty dark with a medium head that went away quick. Average palate and carbonation. Roasted malts also had a sense of oak and smokiness. This had a strong German feel to it. Not much of a hops presence. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11oz stubby shaped bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown with just a bit of a tan head that settles away quickly. Malty aroma. Caramel and chocolate flavors with very little hops. Not the most exciting thing around but decent overall.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark caramel-brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was cola, wood and a bit of roasty malts. The flavor was dry and woody with light notes of cola and roasty malts. Long woody finish. Medium body. Eh.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Has a nice mild toasty malt aroma. Bit of a creamy body. Roasted malts pretty much sums up the taste.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had straight from the bottle at a party. Looks black with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, chocolate, and caramel. Taste is the same. Medium bitter finish. I thought for sure this was a schwarzbier, not a dunkel. Simple, cheap, and very sessionable as the name suggests; a good buy for the money.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into a lager glass. Appearance is cola like with ruby tinge. Smells of roasted malts, caramel and very light cocoa. The taste is where I was hooked, delicious but light tastiness with hints of caramel with some light hopping at the end, very light mouth feel crisp and refreshing. Yum, easy going down to the point of being dangerous. If your in the mood for a very easy drinking lightly flavored brew then then this is for you. Great everyday drinker !

Less than one finger head. Nice caramel malts with a hint of bitterness. Great bite on the finish, nothing lingers leaves you wanting another session

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
while its nothing to write home about, its certainly better than regular Session, darker malts, creamier albeit somewhat oilier palate. quite nice really. bottle shape sells it for sessioning of course,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: brown pour with medium, quickly fading tan head. Aroma is mild with roast grain, cocoa, and toffee. Flavor is chocolatey with some roast grain and malt. Nice flavor, very easy to drink, I will buy more.
