Great full flavored lager that has an incredible malty kick to it. The smell is as amazing as the taste.

From a bottle, perhaps some roasted smells in there. Looks just fine! Taste is perhaps more personalty than i care for yet it is still well behaved. Yes, one of my favorite styles.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle, roasted malt aroma, tan head. Flavors has some stout characteristics, not nearly as heavy and without the bit of a stout. Clean qualities as well. A little heavier than a lager, fits dunkel character. Definitely worth the try!!

Bottle. Pours chestnut brown, thin head, no retention. Nose is malty, some caramel, hint of coffee. Mouth is medium bodied, malt forward, coffee, cocoa, toasted brown bread. Not terrible, but I’ve had better.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours black with hints of chestnut and a yeasty, lacing tan head that fades to a chunky coating. Aroma is nuts, earthy chocolate malts and mild darkfruit. Taste is a bit thin, short and syrupy. Flavor, however, is very pleasant. Roasted toffee, raisins and a hint of noble hops to finish. Mild carbonation and an active mouthfeel. Overall tone is sweet with some roast and some bitter out back. Very drinkable and even a bit stout-like.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL bottle BB JUL14
Pours an attractive deep garnet body, a bit of clarity to it. A dense off-white foam holds, leaving clumpy lace in its wake.
Good intensity of aroma; dark grain bread, burnt toast, brown caramel, hint of almost clove-like spice.
Nice smooth carbonation, has a creaminess about it bolstered by a good amount of body; certainly more than expected with a beer of this strength.
Palate follows on with more notes of bitter chocolate, cola, burnt caramel, dense breads, savoury spice and a hint of coffee grinds. Dry finish, moderately low bitterness.
Very well made, very tasty, very drinkable. Certainly a good sort of "gateway" dark beer.

Bottle. Pours a deep dark black with a thin off white head. Aroma of chocolate malt. Tastes like a porter but a lot lighter in the palate and stomach.
