Skunky lager-like smell immediately releases from the bottle upon opening. Also smells a little like a sharp cheese which "fruitens-up" a bit after the brew starts to settle. Nice, clear dark-amber color that is aesthetically pleasing when held up to a light source. Head starts out rather foamy in an off-white color, and settles down to the surface of the beer after about a minute. There is a light, almost syrupy taste resembles almost exactly Tilburg’s dutch brown ale. Medium-bodied brew with a slick texture. Soft carbonation that slightly tickles the tongue and palate. Bitter finish that lingers for a short while. I would consume this one again.

Taste is roasted malt, crisp and yet creamy. Dark brown in color and mostly clear. A nutty aroma and a medium body. Smooth head with some lace. A gentle drinking lager for anytime.

not wretched, and a step or two or three above the classic and the NA. like a light dunkel, has the requisite flavors and aroma, just less of it all.

Bulk_Carrier (3013) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was a decent dry chocolate and somewhat of a banana like smell. The taste was mainly sweet and had a decent sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and showed a decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation was mainly smooth. Overall, this was not a bad Dunkel but not necessarily one of the better ones.

Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, light fruit character, hints of chocolate, low bitterness, flavor falls off on the finish, just a slight off note.

Pretty bad, especially for a German import. The bottle was flat when I opened it, created almost no head when I poured it, and slaked no thirst as I drank it.

12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear medium brown with a small head. Aroma of light chocolate, caramel, and hops. Taste of malt and slight hops. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but not good.

adnielsen (10199) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a deep burgundy orange appearance with a thin light brown head. Toasty grain / caramel / nutty, cookie dough aroma with mild hops and a bit of skunk. Burnt sugar / caramel, slightly sweet, a bit metallic, mild cardboard flavor. Bottle seems a bit old but I really never liked this beer much at all. Hopefully this is the last time I’ll ever drink it.

BeerandBlues2 (11048) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a small, frothy light beige head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and light chocolate malt, dates and figs, light earthy and spicy hops with faint caramel notes. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a lightly dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.
