3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by puzzl. Pours a deep rusty copper color with a wisp light tan head. The aroma showcases some soft toasted chocolate, as well as a sweet spiciness-clove perhaps. Thin body, but the flavor has decent malt character offering some dark caramel and brad crust. Mild bitterness, a bit attenuated overall, but no severe flaws.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a near black color with a fading head. Nice toasty malt aroma. Toasty, nutty malt flavor, and quite nice. Almost a little towards the finish as well. Easy drinking dark lager, and a unique beer for me. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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.
