2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz can via Mystery Swap (thanks DocLock!). Pours a clear dark reddish brown with an average size beige head. Nose is toasted grains, strawberry, something strange....Taste is the same with some nuttiness as well. Metallic finish. Medium body. Light carbonation. Not really very tastey due to the chalky metallic aftertaste. I think the roasted malts are overdone as well.

Tap at Independence Brewery. Grass, molasses and malt aroma. Brown with moderate head. Grass/hay malt flavor - light. Would like this better with a stronger malt flavor.

12 oz can from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a decent looking clear orange body with some clinging bubbles and a smaller foamy white head. Aroma is all malts at first and smells almost like a BMC but then with some warming notes of grape, raisin and glue. Thine bodied withn light carboantion and not much of an aftertaste. Flavor is almost nonexistant, a slight hint of malts and dry grassy hops. If it wasn’t for the decent color on this beer it could almost be a BMC.

6er of cans from the rip and run. Ahh a new Sly Fox offering in my little town...Joy! or at least that is what ran thru my head prior to purchase and consumption of this off mark super sweet viscous substance. It may have authentic ingredients, just not the taste, body or luciousness of a quality dunkel. Looked nice in the glass though.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy brown coloured body with a ridiculously large, exploding, tan head that looks like soda and doesn’t stop with carbonation - at all. Aroma of pale malt, caramel, a touch of pit fruits and a lot of cardboard. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt and caramel sweetness up front with some light nuts and a lot of cardboardie funkiness on the back end. Aftertaste has some light sugars, but mainly an odd sweet, nutty taste. Overall, not such a great beer and the overkill on carbonation just makes it plain bad. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 04-September-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 30-November-2010.

Canned. Pours on the lighter side of brown. Mild caramel notes but overall kind of a watery and characterless dunkel.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very active can. Tall, deflating, bubbly beige head atop a ruby tinged copper colored liquid. Dry caramel and DMS scents. Nothing to get interested in, in the aroma. I start to get some iodine and other medicinal scents as well the longer this one sets. LIght sweet malt and light licorice in the flavors. Some pumpernickel and other grainy breads as well. Hints of herbal hops, but more a distraction than an addition. Somewhat thin in acidic in feel. Unfortunately the type of brew that give lagers a bad name.
