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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2014 On tap several times, pours a dark brown with a medium beige head. Nose brings out light roasted malt, light smoke, and some toasted notes. Flavour is the same, with a very smooth, drinkable body. Nothing overly exciting, but very easy drinking and enjoyable if nothing else is available.
Bottle, sampled at Firefly Fine Wines and Ales, pours light brown. Aroma and flavour of light roasted malts, light toast / cereal, and a slight sweetness. Drinkable.

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 medium roasted malt that seemed to be a bit like a bock. Medium bodied, slightly oily texture. Smooth mellow with bunch of soft malt. Short finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap, brewery. Nice clear dark brown body with a small foamy off-white head. Great chocolate and roasted malt nose with some sweet licorice and caramel. The flavor is a bit thin and husky, but there’s some nice chocolate and light roastiness. Very clean finish with licorice and light roast coffee. Clean crisp mouthfeel,fine fizzy carbonation. Nice light hoppiness on the back end. Really nice easy drinking beer. Came across much like a Schwarzbier.
