Draft at the brewpub.Dark copper with head. A bit of toast and noble on the nose, lots of toffee/caramel on the tongue. Finish was mildly sour. Not so rich, seems to have lots of crystal malt.

From bottle into glass. Strange aroma that I can’t quite place, but I want to say cabbage. Pours a hazy dark red with minimal head. Taste is light to medium sour. Light body with an oily texture. Would not recommend it.

Weak body, unexciting dunkle (bock?). Some chocolate notes, but very forgetable.

Up front, not my favorite style. Pours dark brown, small tan head. Smells of spiced raisin pie, molasses and toffee. Taste is malt, molasses and raisin pie. Sweet. Nice carbonation. Sweet malt with a crisp lager finish.

Dark mahogany colour, not much head but it looks good anyway with that colour. Molasses aroma, taste is a bit molasses and caramelly dark malts. Simple character, not a ton of complexity, decent malt character and basic body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Couleur rouge sombre avec une mousse beige moyenne. L’arôme du malt léger, céréalés et levure. Le goût est d’abord du malt, puis un peu de céréalés. Finition un peu sec.

22oz bottle, shared by DanielCoor. Hazy, dark brown / red color. Thin khaki, lightly airy head. Some splotches and ropes of lace. This bottle foamed over a bit when opened, may have a mild infection. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft carbonation. Lightly slick. Yeah, moderate tart taste, moderate sweet. Tastes mildly infected. Some decent chocolate, toasty malt notes. Light metallic. Not much to the aroma, but what’s there is good. Shame that it’s infected. Dan says it’s a year old, but not bad for what it is.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A very dark brown lager, with a bit of tan head. Dunkels aren’t my favourite lager style, as I generally prefer bocks and doppelbocks,, but this’s a very decent one.
More recently from a bottle from BCL store in Burnaby. Still a very agreeable dunkel, though with warmer weather coming, I probably won’t be having it again until fall. More of a cool to cold weather beer.
Correction: RB listing says 7.4% alcohol, but my recent bottle label says 5.4%.
