2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
341 mL bottle from BC Liquor Stores, served almost cold in a rocks glass.
App.: Fairly dark cola, clear, mocha head that dissipates quickly.
Aroma: Tight nose, kinda dirty and skunky with some odd earthy, nutty notes. A bit of roasted malt as it warms (I’m stretchin’ it here...).
Palate: Medium body and fairly full, sharp carbonation.
Flav.: Some roasted malt notes, bread crust/toast, a bit nutty, maybe a bit of floral hops in the background. Finishes with a hint of bitterness and little residual roastiness.
Schwach, Herr Hermann. Nicht so gut.

Quite a nice beer. Dark body with a good tan head. Very nice malts in the nose and flavour. Nice tasty finish.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown appearance. Nose is of slightly sweet malt, some caramel notes. I think that either this beer had infection issues or was subject to age as it had a very tart, sour tinge to the body. Some bitterness, a little fruit.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Billy Bishop legion in Vancouver. Pours a medium dark brown with decent off white head. Aroma is sweet medium roasted malt, a tad thin. Medium bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Taste is smooth and mellow with a bunch of soft malt. Short finish. Reasonable but far less than exciting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
MUCH better than I was expecting! Dark lagers’ soft nutty background sometimes mesh with the lager foreground to make something really good, and it happened here. Nothing overpowering, but dunkels aren’t meant to be that way, really, just a nice soft sipper. This something I’d like to share with non-craft beer drinking friends.
