jeremyh70 (809) - Missouri, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Pours a mahogany color with decent tan head and little lacing. Aroma of toasted malt with a hint of nuttiness and grain. Detect a hint of wet cardboard also. Taste is of bready toasted malt with some caramel and a bit of herbs. Cardboard also detectable in taste. Medium body with semi thin mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Beer was somewhat oxidized so need to try again. ---Jeremy H

Motobashi (106) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle. Poured a deep red with very little head. Soft carbonation. Minimal aroma of caramel. Very light lacing. Light body. Slightly bitter finish. Short lived. Semi sweet flavour with something I can’t quite place. Ok, but nothing overly special.

"nothing spectacular, but a good session beer at the least. looks...um...like the picture. smell is sweet malt, honey, earthy hop balance. body thin but fits the style. could be better, could be worse, easy drinking flavor. "

Transfer from BA review on 2-6-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – Pours a brown-mahogany color with highlights of red shinning through. Upon pouring there is a small off-white head that fades fast leaving very little lacing on the sides of the glass but a thin film floating atop the brew that lasts for quite some time. Smell- The aroma is heaviest of a caramel and toffee sweet smell mixed with some notes brown bread and a light amount of cocoa. Taste – The taste begins with a bready flavor of dark roasted malt with some light chocolate and caramel. The sweeter flavors that were present initially fade quickly as some flavors a more bitter grape/wine come to the tongue. This more bitter wine like flavor as well as a light herbal hop flavor, that comes to the tongue at the end of the taste, end up combining with the roasted malt and the light sweetness to leave a odd fruity, roasty, and somewhat of light bitter tannin flavor to be left the tongue. Mouthfeel – The thickness and creaminess of the beer was very average with a carbonation level that was average as well. The middle road fits this beer rather well as the darker flavors would likely be better with lower carbonation and higher thickness, while the wine like tannin and sweet flavors are likely better with the opposite (thin body and higher carbonation). Overall – While at first I wasn’t wild about the brew, it grew on me as I drank it more. The mix of the roasted flavors and the more fermented grape flavors create a rather soothing taste. Not bad.

chinchill (2430) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Spaten Dunkle on tap Dark amber brown with a durable foamy beige head. Surprisingly rich and nutty aroma. This is followed up by the flavor which is nutty but not rich. The feel is a bit too thin and might benefit from a touch higher carbonation.

Bork (365) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 19, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2014 Overly sweet with lots of dark fruits, some caramel and some bread. Disappointing bitterless and slightly sour finish.
