Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
Not much pop upon opening and sure enough hardly any carbo. A mean dump still yields naught for head. Dark brown body. The aroma shows milk chocolate, light toffee and a hint of nuts. Soft body. Very low kellerbier-type carobonation. Chewy light toffeeish malts. Some earthiness shows through and just a hint of chocolate. Very smooth and drinkable, if a bit watery.

(500ml bottle) Pours dark mahogany (almost black) body with a cascading large rocky long-lasting beige head with excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, cereal, caramel, and honey. Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, licorice, and dark fruits.

bhensonb (11526) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 25, 2007
500 ml. bottle. Sweet brown malt aroma with a bit of forest mast touch. Perhaps a hint of chocolate. Near opaque brown color with a frothy beige head that does some lacing. Thinnish body with a nicely moderate carbonation. The flavor is much of a brown ale. There’s a hint of sour, but also a decent level of bitter. The finish is dry with a impact that would be more of a brown ale or porter than a dark lager. This is just an excellent beverage. The type that makes me rethink my ale prejudices.

Sammy (8939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2006
Dark dunkel like with abundant lace. Fresh taste at Pizza Plant Transit. Roast in aroma, taste like a deep rich wine. Yeast is there to round out satisfying aftertaste. Full mouthfeel.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2006
0.5 L bottle. Beautiful dark brown to black beer wit a thick fluffy tan head that lasts and lasts. Toasted malt, chocolatey with some earthy dustiness as well. Soft creamy texture showing sweet toasted nuts, cocoa and a soft earthy flavour that is quite lovely. Beautiful rings all the way down my glass. Light caramel and dark toast. Well-balanced flavour matches with the almost perfect mouthfeel Light noble hops throughout. Very nice beer.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2004
Old yeasty figs thrown off by a defiant mineral nature...Insalubrity is unbalanced and is not helped by the stillness of it all...A full-bodied sweet malt does not embolden this boring bock/marzen/whatever-dark lager...

jercraigs (8070) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2006
Bottle. Very dark brown body with a big beige head that diminishes. (3+) Muted aroma is a ashen-smokey-roast nutty mocha mess. Lingering dry chalky acidity. Average to medium palate. Just something about it rubs me the wrong way.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 29, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Deep brown pour that looks ebony from a few feet away, with 1-finger khaki head. Great appearance for this one. The aroma is corn flakey malt, with a nice roastiness to the malt, and some chocoff and slight smoked almonds. The flavor is on the dry side, very roasty dark malty, with some chocolate syrup, coffee, almond, and even brown sugary hints, although it stays semi-dry and never gets too sweet, which is a plus for this one due to its character. As it warms, the pretty hefty body gives it some profile hints not unlike a dry stout or Baltic porter.
