   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20
Cornfield (5521) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Very nice pour, a mahogany dark enough to seem almost black, capped by a tall tan head that pasted heavy lacing to the sides of the glass. The aroma has chocolate, dark roasted malt, nuts, and the slightest hint of herbal/grassy hops. Rich malty flavor, grain and dark bread dough, milk chocolate, a soft spiciness... i.e., good stuff. It finishes both sweet and mildly dry. A very quaffable lager.

nearbeer (3816) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 0.5 l.Opaque black with a sticky, lasting three-finger head. Grain, herb, molasses and corn on the nose. Grain and biscuit initial flavor turns to roasted corn and nuts, then finishes with a delicate balance of spicy-herb hop and cocoa flavors. Light-medium body is fairly smooth, slightly watery, and finishes just dry enough. Great, highly-sessionable alternative to the ubiquitous Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ale fall seasonals.

EithCubes (5071) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Swing-top. Aroma of sweet grass and citrus, light chalky/dusty hoppiness. Very malty with just a touch of grain. Fresh and refreshing! Slight bocky (grapey malt) touches. Chocolate and nuts. Noisy, excitable head fills the whole glass when not careful, lacing-rich and rocky cocoa-colored head. Deep, dark mahogany body, but still translucent. Taste is dry with chocolate, nuts, and light cocoa, perhaps a dash of mocha. Nice, downplayed earthy hops, but here, the malt’s the thing. Light rounding bitterness. Light body, not watery, and very smooth. Classy, straightforward but satisfying rendition.

beerlord (215) - tonawanda, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2008
A touch of dark malt in the aroma from a ruby body so dark it’s almost black. Small tan head that quickly dissipates. a touch of roasted malt ans some sweetness come through followed by some hellertau flavor and bitterness. On the thin side, and definitely nothing special.

timfoolery (1124) - California, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Dark in appearance, this brew seemed a bit watered down compared to other darks. The taste was of coffee and chocolate, but muted. It’s a pretty good brew, but not full bodied enough for my taste.

alexanderj (3331) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle from the Chino Hills BevMo. Poured a dark brown with a good sized light brown head. Aroma was heavy on the roasted malt with chocolate and yeast. On my initial taste I thought this was the best I have had of the style. Went back and checked my ratings and I was proven correct. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. Rich flavor that had some lactic sweetness. Palate was almost watery, but worked well.

SDalkoholic (2173) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Purchased at Bevmo in a bottle. Creates a thick lathering foam with a dark black beer to gaze upon. The nose is a smooth blend of roasted malt and classic German hops that really soothe my thoughts on how this is going to taste. The flavor is a rich and creamy blend of roast malt and hints of chocolate with a well rounded balance that makes a perfect dunkel
