MartinT (8736) - 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...

marcus (8001) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
This black beer poured with a fluffy tan head and a mild caramel aroma. The flavor is mostly candy sugar and caramel malt. The body is too thin and ;there is an odd aftertaste.

bb (7754) - Alamo, California, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottle. Mahogony/dark ruby color with a tan head. Smokey, earthy, malt aroma. Flavor is lighter than expected - smoke, malt, caramel, earth - with a bit of acidity and very slight metallic, Lighter than expected body. Dusty, earthy, malt lingers with a bit of acididty. Needs more oomph.

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours clear deep amber with thin white head. The aroma is sweet molasses, caramel, toffee, sweet Concord grape jam and mild mustiness. The taste is thin with semi sweet molasses and faint dark fruitiness to go along with some Munich like grainy malts. Pretty good but the aroma paints a better picture than the beer flavor can support.

Ughsmash (7426) - 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 it’s 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!

Pours an opaque black with dark brown edges and a nicely-lacing frothy tan head, looks more like a schwarzbier than a dunkel. Lightly sweet dark malty aroma has a touch of dark chocolate and a hint of smoke. Full body starts with a pleasant toasty malty sweetness turning somewhat nutty and drier toward the slightly sticky roasted caramel finish. This is a solid dunkel.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo. beautiful darlk amber with a little marroon tinge. Taste is a little watered down, some chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts. Very easy drinking. Enjoyable but pedestrian.

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2005 Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, roasted nuts, caramel), moderately hoppy (flowers, orange), with a note of honey, light note of smoke. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. A clean and refined dunkel lager that is blossoming with unmistakable honeysuckle Hallertauer and freshly baked bread and walnuts...and ohhh soooo German, from the first whiff you know exactly where this was made. Really beautiful malt character. Wonderful balance in the mouth and a soft, velvety mouthfeel. Big lasting head and lovely dark chestnut color. The other Mahr’s brews I’ve had haven’t impressed me too much, but this one is excellent.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle: Pitch brown, nearly black, moderate frothy light beige head, very sticky lacing.   Subtle roasted malt nose, slightly bready, very minor fig/date as well.   Smooth malt body, pale roasted malts, very clean, no residuals.   Mouthfeel is fairly moderate tho.   This one is too easy to drink, a true measure of how good it is.   Probably one of the better ones I have had.
