Brown brew with fast dying head. Yep this is a dark lager and I am not much of a lager fan, especially dark lagers. As usual it smells like chocolate malts that would be expected from a good stout. Well have to give this one bonus on flavor. The mix of malts used makes the chocolate not so over the top and makes this one fairly drinkable. Not the heavy grime feel over the tongue that is typical of others I have had. Decent brew and that suprised me.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2014
Sample at Beerfoot. Reddish-brown color with a medium foamy light beige head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of bready malt, chocolate and earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

ttoadee (684) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Clear dark brown, big toffee head. Nose is hint coco, chocolate malt. Lightly bittersweet. Middle is creamy dark roasted malt with a hint of vanilla. Finish is long and soft with spicy hops echoing distantly around your tongue.

Canned in Htown. Brown pour, nice hint of malts, pretty clean finish. A very nice dunkel IMO.

Extra from Errl...Sometimes do these breweries just come up with a name before the beer? Reddish brown, with a pillowy head. Some caramel sweetness. uber simple, but clean enough.

phaleslu (6701) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2014
12 oz. can from a pal in Texas - thanks again, Brian! Pours a deep brownish amber with a finger of off-white head that settles into a big ring. Aroma of chocolate, root beer, Munich malts, leaves, earth, and some muddled spice. Flavor of spice, leaves, root beer, and a huge slate of different malts - chocolate, toast, Munich, amber. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, malty, spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Odd beer.

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Black patent. Wow. Smells like enough grain to start a farm. Brown and hazy with a decent head. Lots of chalky cocoa in the flavor not a bad dark lager. Acually has the fullness of an ale.

Emphasis on roasty and biscuity malts. Very little hop. Very dry. Good balance.
