COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mild dark lager with a distinct character, and closely resembles the lager handcrafted by the German brewmeisters at the original Roslyn Brewery one hundred years ago. We use our own recipe of Roslyn water, fresh from the Cascade Mountains, four types of malted barley and three hop varieties to produce this smooth lager.

IndianaRed (2865) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2006
Bottle Pours a very dense, dark brown. Rather thin coarse dark tan head that quickly recedes but maintains a thin cramy ring. Spotty lacing. Woody, smokey aroma. Lots of chocolaty light roasted notes as well. Flavor is heavy on the toasted malts, cocolate and grassy bitter componant. Slightly bitter astringent trailer. A lager with some backbone. Interesting, but one is enough.

Dark mahogany appearance. Chocolaty fruity aroma. Fairly distinctive cocoa/chocolaty flavor almost as strong as a porter albeit in its lighter lager body. Pretty tastey in a style I usually don’t care for too much.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2007 Poured a brown gritty body with a decent medium-sized top of off-white color. Thin mouth feel coincides with a mild grainy sweet malted nose. Finished smooth. Great sessionable dark lager.

Dark brown, light tan head. Aroma is lightly roasty, caramel, light chocolate. Taste is lightly smokey, light chocolate, some roastiness. Nice body.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Dark mahogany with a filmy head and spotty lacing. Roast and some chocolate in the nose. A touch bitter. The flavor is mostly same as the nose with the exception being notes of coffee. Light bodied and dry finishing roasty.

Bottle from DA. Rich, deep brown colore with bits of red. Moderate tan head leaves great lacing. Nicely roasty in aroma. Light in body. Clean, roasted malt flavors with nut and coffee being dominant. A bit drying?? Decent.

ContemplateBeer (1743) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Aroma of chocolate and light caramel. Appearance is dark brown with tan head; not much carbonation. Flavor matches the nose, with light toasted malts becoming more apparent. Palate is creamy and smooth. A pretty mundane dunkel.

brenn79 (1723) - Idaho, USA - DEC 3, 2009
22 oz. bottle- Pours almost black with little head, aroma isn’t much, some malt. The flavor is also very malty with a bitter aftertaste, it’s mellow, drinkable and interesting but not great.

pinkzambia (1682) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 10, 2006
22 oz. Bottle: Dark amber color with a minimal light brown head. Sweet malty aroma of alcohol, roasted nuts with sugar on them and a woody thing going on. Wood and smoke and a deep musty taste along with an earthy notes as well. Thin body with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad. Thanks Indiana_Red for sharing this Washington specialty.
