Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a translucent dark brown with a bit of a reddish tint and foamy light beige head. Smells of fairly mild dark malt and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells with a touch of toastiness. Solid on the palate. Exceeded my expectations.

12 oz bottle shared by my in laws. Pours brown in color with a large creamy beige head. The aroma and flavor have mildly toasted malt, bread, light caramel with some mild earthy hops. Better than the other two I tried, but still not worth seeking out.

Aurelius (4230) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Consumed as Millerís Ale House Captain Jack Dark on an outing with PorterPounder. Very dark, to the point of being opaque - hard to call this a vienna, was guessing dunkler bock. Sweetish, pretty good balance, a little raisin/fruit tone. Medium to slightly heavy body. Maybe a little sugary in the finish. Notes of molasses. Honestly, this is a sloppy rating. Will need to take better notes sometime -- anyway, it wasnít too bad.

JonnyMadison (41) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Very rich and creamy. Great color, aroma, and flavor, especially from a bottle. Although the dark, rich flavor was satisfying, the aftertaste was a bit chalky and sometimes made the beer taste waterier.

maxwelldeux (3688) - Everett, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Nose is very roasty and bitter, almost to the point of being like burnt coffee. Taste also has that burnt flavor to it, and it makes it seem more like a porter than an amber. Whatever. Itís drinkable, but not terribly pleasant.

DBob5150 (197) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Dark amber body with a thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is a caramel, roast toffee. Taste is smooth, hoppy & clean. Enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Westmeister (1784) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours dark black/brown with thin off white head. Taste is slight roast, little cocoa, caramel sweetness, slight spice, hint of vanilla, nutty. Actually a lot going on here. Smooth medium full finish. Actually pretty nice.

Favorite fall and winter beer. Surprisingly lighter taste then the color would lead you to believe - nice surprise. !

Itís definitely watery, not creamy, but it a pretty good and cheap dark malty beer, I think my favorite from Leinenkugelís.
