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.

Bottle. I’ve never been a huge fan of Matilda Bay beers but this one is pretty good. Pours dark reddish brown with a decent tan head. Aroma is of coffee, malt and chocolate. Flavour has a lot of roasted malt and other grains, with lesser amounts of espresso and dark chocolate. The palate is surprisingly creamy and smooth, with little sweetness. Definitely the best beer I have had from these guys and one of the better Australian dunkels around.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2010 Bottle. This is an interesting dark lager. Aroma is roasted malt, biscuit, and chocolate; but it has some band-aid too. Tastes sweet all the way, with light bitterness. Colour is dark brown, with a thin head that disappears. Light to medium body, and velvety feel.

Draught. Pours brown with a small white head. Aroma and flavour of burnt malt, caramel, toffee and brown sugar. Good carbonation with a malty finish.

330ml bottle. Thick ruby brown in colour with a frothy tan head - looks great in the glass. Aroma of toffee and caramel with a hint of chocolate. Smooth with a taste of burnt chocolate. Thinner in body than it looks in the glass. Fresh feel in the mouth and overall very good.

Dark copper/ruby. Thick tan head, nice and creamy. Toasty malt dominated aroma, almost roasted. Quite sweet though, there’s definitely some toffee and caramel. It’s all quite subtle though. Flavour is mostly roasted malt. Again, its quite sweet. No bitterness, very little hops. Good creamy carbonation.

...on tap at the Taphouse. Complete shit. Mud and water on the nose, with a burning wood overtone. Lots of rubber notes, with catpiss highlights. FInished muddy. Horrible, I hate Matilta Bay, that can’t brew to save thier lives. Bunch of fags if you ask me.

I find these black beers abit overrated on Ratebeer. Sure was nice and another example of caramel and roasted coffee and chocolate, but they all start tasting the same after awhile. Still it was nice.

Bottled. A dark red beer with a thick brown head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of caramel and nuts - and so is the flavor. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
