500ml bottle. Thick, amber-mahogany color with a huge. lasting head. Taste is very mellow, with mild chocolate and caramel notes being the backbone of the beer. Very smooth and drinkable, a great lager. The aroma is nice and fresh with a light herbal touch to it. A very sublime, quality beer.

17thfloor (2430) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2008
A very dark brown with a medium foamy tan head. Dark malts, mostly coffee dry/bitterness, some milk chocolate, not a much hops present. Like a very watery porter, still a really nice smooth flavor though. Some woodiness. Body is medium flat. Very dark dunkel.

Pours a very thick foamy tannish colored head. Beer itself is dark brown. Aroma not very prevalent. Perhaps that of slightly wet newspaper. Fairly high in carbonation with brown malts on in the flavor. Flavors open up slightly after bottle has been open and beer has a chance to warm up a little. Typical thin body of a germanic brew. It was on the close-out rack at Bevmo for $2/btl. Kind makes me wish Id bought more.

Ughsmash (7137) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Bottled. Poured a warm, deeper, garnet-tinted brown with a creamy cap of beige head.. perfect for the style! The aroma is sweeter with dusty cocoa, a touch of molasses, and accents of dry herbal and floral notes.. well-presented. The flavor had sweeter chocolate and toasted nutty notes at the core with very light herbal and coffee bitterness surrounding.. drier and good for the style, but its just not a great style. Lighter-bodied and free-flowing on the palate, leaving a dry impression.. lightly-toasted. This was a very solid brew!

Beerdedone (2625) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Bottle sampled. Pours a very dark brown with a nice fluffy tan head. Aroma of toasted malts, light chocolate, coffee, and a hint of toffee. Flavor is roasted malts, caramel, light chocolate, and some smoke with a dry finish.

joet (2172) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - FEB 5, 2008
Thin, headless, very dark brown, bits of nuts but more prominent aromas of wet asphalt and old licorice. No body at all and barely any bitterness and near totally dry. This is barely beer to me. Could have been water scooped from an old washing machine and pitched with ash. Not quite Chelada but pretty bad.

McGarnigle (555) - Rochester, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2008
500 ml, undated but probably not as fresh as Id like. I got a good pop when opening this one. Translucent very dark brown with beige head. Not a lot of aroma: smells lager-ish with some cocoa. Body is a bit too thin with assertive fine bubbles. Taste is balanced between malt and hops. Its not really as roasty as I would have thought. Slightly bitter with a dry finish. Very drinkable, but for the imported price.

kapusta (87) - Dover, Delaware, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Dark, dark browm color, almost black, but light still goes through. Quickly diminishing taqn/brown head. Flavor is malty and bread-like. Nice bitter sweetness along with a slight roasted flavor. This is very well done.
