What a good looking beer! Pours dark with an off white head that floats on top like cream! Beautiful! A sweet malty aroma and a dark brown color. A pleasant malty flavor with a touch of bitter on the back side. Great mouth feel. This was great beer!

ChainGangGuy (4280) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
500ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a chestnut brown body with some amberish tones present.

Smell: A smell of toasted hearty dark bread, incredibly faint roast flecks, apple skin, and old, dried herbs.

Taste: Soundly toasty malts, a little hint of dark caramel, though not particularly sweet hiding what seems to be some grainy pils underneath. Even a touch of roast in there. Faint, faint touch of apple skin. Dried herbal tone from the hops with enough bitterness to balance things out.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Reasonably smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A decent dark lager.

bhensonb (10354) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Swing-top from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a creamy beige head. Aroma is mildly sweet, darkly fruity and bready. Med body. Flavor is rather dry, tends towards dark brown bread. It has mild bitterness, but doesn’t seem very fruity after all. It’s really hard for me to describe in full detail, but there’s some bits and pieces I don’t understand. It all hangs together well tho, and it’s a really tasty drink.

Shaney (2429) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2012
#819 Dunkelbraun, nur leicht trüb, stabile Schaumkrone. Ein starkes Blockmalzaroma. Im Antrunk dann sehr würzig-malzig, ohne zu überzeugen. Insgesamt ein sehr sperriges Dunkles, dessen Röstmalznoten die Süffigkeit nach unten drücken. Klare Lakritznoten im Abgang finde ich auch nicht gut. Geht so. Test vom 18.1.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,9,8,8,8,8 - 8,35

McTapps (2995) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Great, nutty aroma and colour like melted chocolate. Flavours of roasted nuts, dark bread and sweet dried fruits. Would drink this beer always again.

0,5 swing top bottle shared with McTapps. A huge and nice surprise. Full body with a great aroma reminding me some Guinness. Extremely quaff with an earthy aroma. Superb beer.
