COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Exhibiting a deep, chestnut color and malty aroma All Malt Dark Lager is a very inviting beer. Mildly malty, with little lingering sweetness to note, Dark Lager is surprisingly refreshing. This is beer as it was meant to be, firm and satisfying. Seasonal specialty available January - April on draft.

This was the first Dunkel I’ve rated. Pours a darker amber with a small tan head. Slight aroma of malt, roasted nuts and even some prunes. Picking up the malts and slight alcohol in the taste. Some similarities to Victorys "regular" lager, although I enjoyed this one a bit more.

Bready malt aroma is clean, pleasant and appealing. Clear brown body is topped by shy, off-white head. Bread dough and clean malt flavours with fair finishing bitterness. Medium-light body with low carbonation. A pleasant way to kick-off RBSG’05.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2013
hazy chestnut pour, large-bubbled puffy cream head, drops quickly leaving ample lacing. Desert-like nose is spiced green apple, brown sugar, cinnamon. Rich pumpernickel flavor up front, crusty and dry through toasty mod with a finish that lasts as it warms, maple and crust. Hoppy aroma teases throughout but makes no presence in flavor.

callmemickey (4222) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 14, 2014
Dark copper body, thin off-white head, sparse lacing. Caramel, toffee, dark bready toast, a touch of nuts, and wild grains. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweetness throughout. A little muddled, not particularly interesting, and given the sweetness, a little slow drinking.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Draught sample at Victory. Mild fruity aroma, light caramel maltiness and brewed tea. Rosewater and buckwheat honey. Hops aren’t very strong. Dark amber honey clear with thin off-white lightly lacing head. Medium bodied with mild-medium carbonation. Starts sweet and dry with biscuit, buckwheat honey and mild carbonic tang. Mild sweet finishing notes, light floral hop character. Dry sweet nutty after. Just of bit of Twizzlers in the finish.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 (draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark chestnut color with a fluffy tan head. Aroma is very sweet and malty with a light touch of hops. Flavor is very sweet and smooth with a nice balanced finish and a very smooth aftertaste.

Not bad. Definitely not one of the top beers at Victory but not a bad addition to the sampler. I would say the appearance was the highlight in a sampler with all pillsners...@GT2 feel free to add

BillKismet (3823) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Brown-tinged amber with a light ring of head. Easy malty and nuttiness in the nose with excellent use of traditional Munich malt. The body is accented by Munich malt and subtle nuttiness and also flashes honeyed grain notes and touches of fresh grain and sawdust. Dry finish.
