COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A faithful reproduction of the classic Dark Munich style lager, Dogbolter is brewed from pure malt. Additions of roasted barley an caramel malt creates a dark, malty beer with roasted barley overtones.

Roasted malt comes to the fore in both aroma and taste, unfortunately overshadowing the delicate chocolate and hint of coffee. Mildly astringent, I like my dark beers to have a fair bit more body than this one, but I’ll live with it.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2003 I used to drink a lot of this stuff, but had my first one for ages last night and was definitely underwhelmed. A fairly simplistic ovaltine/coffee flavour, little head (or 'few head' as Bov would say), and vaguely marmaladey aroma. I think I prefer Tooheys Old for a good simple malty dark session swiller.

Smells like Vegemite (English Marmite). Surprising good for Aussie brewed stuff. Malty etc. Next please.

The idea of a dark lager at first sounded like a bit of a joke, but this beer proved me wrong. Cannot speak highly enough of this beer. A perfect bitterness complemented by a lasting head and deep caramel colour. Brilliant execution of a difficult style to master. A must try.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2002
Sweet, malty aroma. Looks like a cola with its head on steroids. Tastes malty yet dry but is just slightly over-roasted, nice finish though. Pretty good especially when considering it comes from Western Australia.

omhper (19214) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2002
Dark brown. Coffee aroma. Roasty with silky maltiness. Balanced sweetness. Some caramel flavour, cask character. A complex and subtle lager with a mild oaky finish.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 31, 2002
A huge head, deep reddish black colour, caramel malt/coffee flavour with nice roasted malt aroma. Very nice on tap, a good one.
