It was a dark and stormy night when the humble brewers connected with the master German maltsters in Bamberg in order to create the smooth synthesis you now have in your discerning possession; an easy-drinking hybrid of a German dunkel and a traditional English ale which emerges as an unassuming, yet enjoyable verbose, beverage.

This Dunkel poured a dark amber colour with a tan coloured, foamy head. Tot eh nose there are scents of caramel, ripe fruit, a little cocoa and rich malt. First sip had a slightly watery mouthfeel but rich in flavours of ripe fruit, light caramel and vermouth. Finish was slightly bitter with very distant hops.

Originally rated December 2009. Bought this one in Edmonston, N.B. when I was on tour with my band. This German-style Dunkel has a huge head that is beige, very creamy, excellent retention and thick and wavy lacing. This is also a hybrid with a traditional English ale so its colour is a dark amber with little bubble carbonation. It becomes hazy when the whole bottle is poured, and ruby highlights show. The aroma is mild with a touch of hop. The malt is very well-hidden with notes of yeast and chocolat. Smooth mouthfeel without stickiness. In the taste, I get some sourness that I am not sure if it is suppose to be there, or if this one outdated. I have seen other reviews talking about this too. Other than that, I do not taste much else. Maybe just disgusted with the infection of this brew. A nice mix of two great styles, but lacking in flavours... and wish I could of had a fresh one.

Tap at Saint John Ale House. Now this is a tough rate - congratulations to the guys for making this very unusual beer, and I see why it didn’t appeal to all. I guess dunkelweizen is the best starting point, with a deep brown/red hue but thin head. Aroma has some yeastiness and hint of fruit. Initial taste is actually a bit thin, some apple and clove, then a kind of weird tobacco spiciness on a surprisingly long finish. Maybe needs a bit more ABV to fill the body out? Not the best beer ever, but different and I really enjoyed trying it.

Bière brune translucide aux reflets rougeâtres elle est coiffée d’une mousse typique et dessine une dentelle filiforme. Des arômes de blé, d’avoine, un côté acidulé ou encore d’un gaz quelconque se pointe aux narines. Une saveur, voyons, c’est insipide, à part peut-être son côté acidulé qui revient en bouche. Ce n’est pas réussi. J’ai une pensée pour Breughel...(333-290812)

Pas un succès mais rien de désagréable... Ça manque de malt un peu mais j’aime bien le goût de banane et de fumée.
