Not much on the nose. Pours a mild brown color with some lucency. Roasted malt flavor with a light body. Roasted flavors does not hang around to long. Nice and easy dark bear to drink. Not to mcuh going on but not much bad either.

Bottle from PW pick a sixer. Pours brown with thin head. Definite taste of rich chocolate but really don’t taste the hops at all....nice and smooth but a bit thin. Good but not great.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Whole Foods, Bowery 12oz ($2): Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and that distinct lager aroma. Taste is very mellow, with pretty much no bitterness. It is very easy to session. It ain’t very complex, but it is plenty pleasant to drink.

Cola colored with off-white fine head. Roasted coffee beans, toasty with some molasses, initially sweet with bread dough and hints of cotton candy. Easy drinking, nice feel, well balanced....not bad at all....but nothing really stand out to make it great. A good Dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Pizzeria Piccola at the MKE airport. Pours brown with orange and reddish tines. Very little lacing. Aroma has chocolate with faint caramel/faint grape. Taste is of choco/caramel with dark fruits. Later nuttiness comes into play. It becomes more sour through the glass. A bit thin. Finishes sour and sweet, fairly short. It was interesting for a dunkel. It was overall not that interesting, though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice aromas of sweet caramel, coffee, alchohol and chocolate. Nice balance of sweetness with dark roasted flavors. Hints of coffee, vanilla, and roasted barley. Dry finish that is well balanced sweet and bitter. More characteristic of a sweet stout but very good.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Like a previous reviewer said, you have to really pour from the bottle aggressively to get a head. But even when you achieve a little head, it fizzles to a very thin foam moderately quickly. There is a strong chocolatey/coffee aroma and taste. I think this beer could use some aging and mellowing a bit, as the coffee taste is too "in your face." I couldn’t drink a full bottle of this.

Taste doesn’t quite match aroma and appearance. Kind of watery. Not as flavorful as I would expect
