blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Draught at ’Golden Tap Awards 2013’, beerbistro. Pours a dark ruby with a spare lasting frothy white head. Aroma of dark fruit and chocolate along with caramel malt and nuts. Flavour is malty, nutty and chocolatey. Average bodied. Just good, not great.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2013
Pours clear, deepest brown with a pale tan, tight head. Aroma of molasses, caraway, and raisins. Taste is sweet up front with complex sweetness, carrying through to a clean, lightly bitter finish - as good as any Czech or German Dunkel/Tmavý - maybe even better.

It pours mahogany with ruby highlights; the head is bone-coloured and foamy. The aroma has notes of: dark bread, with ruby fruits. The taste is light sweet that finishes medium-light bitter; there are notes of: toasted oats, pumpernickel bread, grapefruit-zest, and fresh grains. The palate is medium-medium light bodied, has medium carbonation, and a medium finish. Overall, slightly flavoured water.

On tap at Imbibe. Clear and nearly-black brown. Sweet slightly and toasty aroma. Dark malty taste, nutty and toasty, with a crisp lager finish. Enjoyable.

solidfunk (3869) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Awesome dunkel - maybe among the better I’ve had. Pours orange-maroon with only a little head and lacing. Nice barley malt profile - beautiful in fact. Crisp bitter finish with notes of caramelized malt and a little roast. Great. On tap at Get Well.

Tap at Volo. Deep brown pour with a thick sticky head. The aroma is pretty nutty and lightly toasty. A touch of minerally bitterness. It drinks more like an ale than a lager, but it’s a well-constructed beer.
