PorterPounder (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2009
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour with somewhat of a red tinge to it - quickly fading white head. Slightly sweet aroma with hints of hard candy. Flavor is sweet with some caramel accents, a hint of bubble gum and a molasses back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Overall, decent.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 14, 2009
About what you’d expect. A bit skunky from a distance when you smell it but there’s some fruity maltiness in there. Basic sweet caramel, toffee, and skunky german beer.

nick76 (4253) - Tampa, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2009
The aroma is sweet with toffee, toasted malt, cola, chocolate, and a bit of grass. The appearance is cola brown with an average head that falls pretty fast. The flavor is like the aroma with a sweet taste up front and a bitter finish. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall a nice beer.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 12, 2009
Bottle pours a very weak, light tan head with a ruby body. Color of the beer is very nice. Aroma is skunk. Flavor is caramel, some bread, and a little skunky. Finish is thin.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2009
Six pack from Total Wine, $7.49 Clear brown beer with a medium off-white/tan head that soon drops away. Aroma of earthy grain malt, maybe a light skunk. Flavor is quite good, with sweet dark malts, toffee, caramel, nutty and buttery. A low hop bitterness on the finish. Very easy drinking and smooth. Not spectacular, but pretty good. I have a fondness for dunkels, and this one is enjoyable.

zappafan99 (463) - ASCENSION ISLAND - APR 10, 2009
Taste 4/9 bottle. Looks: Clear dark red/grown. Aroma: Brown sugar and grain. Taste: Nutty, sweaty and sweet to start (like optimator) with a drying(not dry) finish. Worth a drink every once in a while.

Aurelius (4317) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 3, 2009
Soft, clean, brown malt aroma, a little on the cereal side. Clear brown beer, with a big, fluffy light tan head which will suddenly deflate. Appearance ding for the green bottle and the pedestrian label. Cereal tones, moderate bittering, mildly sweet, muted roastiness. Aftertaste is dry and roasty. Decent session brew. Medium body. MSL

urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - APR 1, 2009
A little too basic. I wish there could be some flavor notes of interest here, but there simply are not. As it stands, it is acceptable, but brewers with Spaten’s resources should be able to do something more interesting with this interesting style.

Ernest (6318) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 31, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy/frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted bread, caramel, husks), trace hops (flowers, herbs). Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, slightly metallic. Husky, metallic, poor aftertaste. Not good.

(bottle - 12 oz) Dark brown color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is dark and dry fruits, some light caramel, and a light nut note. Flavor is very dark and semi-sweet with a smooth malt middle and a lightly bitter finish. Slightly earthy.
