llcooldave (1174) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2009
After pouring, dried fruit and crusty bread aromas hit the nose. A clear deep dark reddish brown color in appearance as it pours in the glass. Nice dark wheat bread in flavor with a toasty aftertaste. Overall it great! I hadn’t had something this pleasing in a long time.

12oz bottle. Aroma nutty malty. Flavor toasted malts, toffee, sweet bread. Very balanced. Medium mouth feel. Roasty in the finish. Smooth, easy to drink. Carbonation was mild.

Tasted at the San Diego International Beer Festival. Clear copper brown with no head. Nutty malty aroma and taste without much else going on.

nuplastikk (5269) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 27, 2009
12oz bottle at the Brickskeller. Amber-brown color, filtered and transparent. Minimal quick-fading head. Sweet brown sugar malt taste, quite smooth and well done. Not cloying, pungent, and/or thick like some Dunkels, this is quite well balanced. Caramel and toffee notes. Not much hop presence at all, in accord with the style. Pretty good.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 27, 2009
In the bottle from HyVee CB. I’m sad that this is a green bottle, as I will re-rate this once the Crescent Moon gets it on tap. Pours a very crisp and clean dark brown with a surprisingly white head. Thios has a thin body with a good chocolate and roasted backbone. Good, but not great.

Tmoney99 (12415) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured clear brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate dark malty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Pailhead (6031) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 9, 2009
Bottle: The aroma is rather light and consists of some faint fruitiness and a hint of roastiness. It pours a transparent orangish-brown with a small off-white head. The flavor starts with light chocolate with some fruity sweetness. The finish has some light roastiness. Light-medium bodied with slightly fizzy carbonation.

Pershing (493) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Dark amber with a thin head that quickly dissolves. Malty aroma with a watery taste. The first beer I poured from the six was flat with no carbonation whatsoever. This beer was very boring. Will not try again.

patrick767 (3812) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 30, 2009
bottle - Pours medium brown with a thin head. It smells mainly of caramel malt. The flavor is sweet lightly roasted malt and not much else. It’s light bodied, simple, drinkable, and underwhelming.
