Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Black color, big head. Very nice aroma of roasted malt. Elegant roasted malt flavor, creamy; very dry mouthfeel; but there is also an evident liquorice touch that is out of place. Weak final. Interesting interpretation of the style.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2005 Dark chestnut brown colour. Aroma is somewhat light, but with hints of breadcrust and a touch of molasses. The flavour has some hints of darker Munich malts, a little bit of earthiness. Body is somewhat watery, especially for the style. Sweet, slightly toffeeish finish. I would like to see more body and a more complex dark malt character - it’s just not as rich and assertive as a good dunkel should be.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown-black with a short tan-coloured head. Deliciously strong smell of toasted grain, chocolate, and bitter hops. Taste starts as delicious caramel, roasted malt, and hops, but quickly transitions into a long, unpleasant tinny finish. Not very well balanced, but would be fantastic without the metallic end on finish.

Sweet, malty nose. Dark body. Head is foamy at first but flattens too soon. Smooth. Bready entry. Full of malt. Slightly sweet finish: a little too sweet for me. Mild. Drinkable and light-bodied.
