Dark brown pour with way too much head. Taste is nutty, a hint of chocolate. A bit watery. Not bad, but nothing great.

Bottle, thanks in-laws! Nice dark brown with foamy head - looks great. Toasty malt aroma. Really nice chocolaty malt taste. Medium to light silky body. Clean. Bursting with flavour. This is one the best dunkle type beers I have ever had, well done.

Pours dark brown almost black with a smallish tan head. Aroma is earthy, biscuity. Taste is malt with hint of coffee. Smooth finish with ever so slight hop presence. Pretty good beer.

Excellent beer, great taste, surprisingly smooth. I liked it so much at the bar, I went to the store and bought some to take home.

12oz bottle --> snifter. Dark brown. Not too heady. Smells like roasted malts and raisins. Tastes chocolate-y and malty with the smoothness of a fine whiskey. None of the typical lager skunkiness. Drinks dry, smooth and clean like a good stout.

12 oz bottle. Aroma: roasty and malty, with hints of toffee, dates, vanilla, and leather. Taste/Palate: starts sweet and crisp, and finishes creamy and slightly dry and astringent. One of my favorites from that brewery!

Poured from a 12. Color is dark, looks very inviting! Flavor has a nice maltiness to it. Yet fairly smooth with just a slight astringent feel on the tip of my tongue. Finish is slightly sweet and velvety. Great beer!
