Beer pours beautifully! Very big frothy & foamy textured head that lasts and lasts. Very good, smooth mouth feel. Dryish and satisfying, but with just enough sweetness to invite you back for another swallow. Some roasty, toasty, pumpernickle, dark chocolate, malty aromas and flavors. A tad thin, but not too bad. I liked this one a lot. Had it in bottle at Bodega last night downtown La Crosse.

I love this beer! The flavor is so smooth, with malty and especially smoky and fruity undertones. Very nice light charcoal color and malty aroma. Very drinkable. A very nice beer. I found this in Asheville,NC.

500 mL swingtop. hmm, interesting! reminiscent of a spiced baltic porter, with both chocolate flavors and typical lager essences. i’m very surprised this beer doesn’t have a higher overall score, because the combination of dark flavors (chocolate malt, roast barley, earthy european hops) is bliss. the spices make it clear that this should be a winter beer - one i will gladly revisit!

Freakishly dark red with a thin head. Strong malt aroma with enough whisps of smoke to make me think of salted pork. The taste is dominated by barley with what struck me as chocolate lacing. Odd for the style, but it turned out quite drinkable.

Hmm, another German dunkel with more dark and roasty notes as opposed to caramelly ones. I’m not complaining. Although I have recently had a few real clunkers in the German hefe department, this is solid and drinkable, if unremarkable.

Not at all what I was expecting...Dark, with chocolate and roast predominating, earthy, more like a porter really, not very lager like at all. It is a rustic and satiating beer and definitely flaovorful, but not like the bready, munich malt dominated Dunkels found elsewhere in Bavaria and Franconia. Nice stuff but not so much my cup of tea...

500 ml swing top bottle purchased in CT.This was pretty good considering I have had a few old bottles from mahrs in the past. This tasted kinda fresh with a nice clean malt profile. Pours a deep brown, mostly clear with a nice beige head. Aroma is light munich and light chocolate with that typical dunkel aroma. Not hoppy at all, althought it has a slight crisp bitter finish but is pretty smooth. Lots of dark munich and toffee-like malts all the way through. Again- cool label, nice bottle and good price.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2005 In the cool homebrewer-friendly flip cap 500 ml bottle from Cyclone Liquors. Light body with a white head. Dark brown colored beer.Very roasted in flavor. Maybe a little toasted. Disappointingly light in body. The bottle and the price ($2.99) were the best things about it. UPDATE: 10/18/05 Now on tap at the Huber Haus. Roasted flavor is more pronounced, but still too weak in the body department for me.

Pours with a four-finger very light tan head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Nearly black color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is malty. Starts slightly sweet, definite hoppy finish but not overpowering. Good Oktoberfest. $3.60 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.
