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!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle from Sparky, thanks again E!) Pours out a semi-clear reddish brown color with a towering cream colored head that settles to a nice medium cap with a lot of lacing. Really enjoyed being greeted with toasted grain, roasted nuts, cocoa (Co-Co Krispies cereal to be exact), and musty lager yeast. Not much else beyond that, but there doesn’t need to be when it’s this good. Somewhat reminiscent of a brown ale. Shades of Fitger’s Beaver Bay. Flavor doesn’t disappoint, with tastes of cocoa, toasted almonds, faint caramel sweetness, and toasted cereal grains on the finish which gently continues for quite some time. Mouthfeel is nothing short of perfect. Holy hell this is good.

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.

A really enjoyable dunkel, malty and fruity, with toasted malt and some crisp sourness on the nose, and a long bready finish with caramel and liqourice. Simple but very effective. I could drink this by the liter!

Labeled Landsknecht Dunkles Kellerbier (5.2% ABV): Grainy nose, dirty. Clear brown, thick cream colored head, some lacing. Dirty chocolate flavor, grainy. Not very intense, but flavors are fairly easily discernible. Pecan finish. Light body. Quite a nice session beer that isn’t cloying, hoppy, or overly roasty.
