tmoreau (3714) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2016
On tap at the Doty St. location, and pint served showing a clear & bright, amber highlighted brown tone, with a rocky, cream colored layer of persistent head foam, and thick, wavy ribbons of lacing. The nose was both toasted and moderately roasted, with light cocoa & toffee, malty sweetness, and mellow smokiness. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, and light creaminess to the mouthfeel, the taste included a low, earthy & roasted bitterness, was a little less expressive than the aroma, but was very drinkable and food complementary.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Draft at the Great Dane - Downtown Madison, served in a 10 oz. glass after I called it quits on the imperial pints. Pours a cloudy amber-brown color with a small khaki head. Smoked malts throughout, but not overly smoky. Subtle. Chocolate, leather, toast, nuts, and some moderate earthy hops and dried dark fruits. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, smoky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good rauch.

BelgianBeerGal (3838) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2013
Draft at the Madison downtown location. This was really tasty. A well made, dark-roasted, malty sweet lager with hints of smoke throughout. At first I thought the smoke was too muted but it builds as it warms and breathes a little.

arkurzynski (2249) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 15, 2013
On tap at the Hilldale locale. Deep brown-amber pour with off-white head. Nose is dark Munich malt and nutty, faintly roasted malt. Very faint smoke. Light notes of dark fruit. Flavor is more of the Munich malt, faint plum/raisin, and mild toasted/roasted malt. Clean lager feel, good fermentation profile. Residual toast/mild hop bitterness. Some salty smoke in the finish. Could have profiled the smoke a little better, but who cares. Nothing fancy, but good. Lager school is open.
