a medium bodied dark lager with whiffs of chocolate. Not too great and a bit thin, but not bad.

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.

Oakes (12626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2000
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.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2008
6/6/08 On draught at the Stickey Wicket, Victoria, BC. Aroma is very low with lightly roasted sweet malt dominating. Appearance is dark brown with a tan head. Flavor is roast malt forward with no hops; very simple. Mouthfeel is medium-high bodied with a very low carb texture. Overall, nothing objectionable, but not enough flavor.
