Pours a deep dark brown. Aromas of roasted malts, smoke, and hints of fruit. Flavors of the roasted malts, some fruit, with a coffee aftertaste.

thegreenrooster (3159) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Pour is a dark brown with a mild chocolate looking head. Aroma is some caramel and molasses with a bit of sweetness. Flavor is chocolate and and roasted malt with a sweet aftertaste. Not a bad little beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Aroma is a big gust of candy, some brown sugar and malt, garnet, wears a tiny toffee head. Taste is full roast malts, almost like malt/maple syrup. Medium bodied, sweet and mellow. Very nice. Thanks Radek.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2008
This gets major appearance points. It is a colour I have never really seen in a beer, like a deep ruby reddish brown when held up to the light... that wont even quite describe it. The head is fluffy, and leaves a delicate lace. Aroma is mildly oaky with some brown sugar, some cherry, and some yeast. Taste is a remarkable balance between a very woody dry hoppiness and a nice sweet malt. I swear I even taste a little smokiness on it, I would not be surprised to find out there was a small amount of smoked malt on this beer. I have been waiting to try this, and it indeed has been worth the wait. I will no doubt buy it again.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 16, 2008
<b>15-Sep-08</b> <i>(500-ml swing-top bottle: Purchased 02-May-08 for $5.99 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)</i> With a full-on attack of rich, sweet cocoa, milk chocolate, earth and nuts, this dunkel offers an uncommon chocolaty richness, but lacks the full complexity and depth of the very best German examples. No doubt, the principle flavor of chocolate is delicious, but the melanoidin toastiness and the light roast are missing, as is a gentle hop counterpoint. Fragrant aromas of decadent chocolate and a touch of earth in the nose with a clean, lager character. Medium in body with a soft mouthfeel and delicate carbonation, but the sweetness borders on cloying after awhile. The beer pours a beautiful, clear, ruby-chestnut body with an inch of fluffy, dark-tan head that very slowly settles to a thin, everlasting layer. All in all, too much reliance on cocoa and the sweetness tends to get a bit much, but despite being fairly one-dimensional, it’s still a very tasty and enjoyable beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2006
Pours a deep dark brown with a large tan head. Huge aroma! Thick malty scent, milk chocolate, spices, nuts, dried raisins. The body is nice with a creamy mouthfeel. Very robust for such low alcohol. The flavor is overall light, but firm. Has a very roasty malt character, slightly smokey. There’s definitly an earthy malt, and a slight metallic character. Subtle late spicyness. The finish is extremely late, it’s more like an aftertaste of burnt bitter raisins, metallic, and very pleasant. However the aroma is even more complex than the flavor. Nice beer.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2006
Bottle shared with Jerc and GregClow. Very dark brown, small beige head. Sweet spicy dark malt aroma with some nutmeg - almost reminds of Anchor our Special Ale a bit - fig, some hops. Interesting stale malt taste, almost porter like. Some spiciness. A little dry smoke in finish. Very dry. OK.

GregClow (2849) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle shared with tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. Ruby-brown with a big, bubbly beige head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is odd - quite spicey, but a bit burnt & earthy. I think I like it, but it took a few minutes to get into it. Flavour has a very nice sweet and malty character, a bit nutty, with a dry, slightly smoky finish. Interesting stuff, glad I tried it.
