On tap at Village Tavern - pretty bland and uninspired. Not a lot going on. Dark but no rich malty character or much of a nose. Meh.

Drank from a pint glass, poured from a 500ml bottle. Could have used some late addition hops on this beer. Pours a beautiful deep, dark, clear slightly reddish color, with a bit of white head. Tastes like an everyday dunkle nothing special.
