I’d like to say some nice things about this beer, but to me there is nothing that stands out, other than a faint sour taste in the finish. Tastes stale, but the date on the bottle says it is good til July 02. I don’t know but surely they can do better than this.

Pretty standard german dark beer. It’s nothing special but better than some.

Well it could be a great beer but it has that German import faint urine flavor.

Really good beer. Has a good bite, and has about the same aftertaste as a heineken, although smoother.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2004 Even though I don't rate to style, strange beers like this give me pause. In a blind tasting I would never guess this was a dunkel nor do I think I could distinguish this from the same brewer's pale lager/pilsner. Thus, I pause to worry whether they used dark malts at all in the brewing of this. For me not even a hint of caramelized melanoidiny flavors. Is it just caramel color added? On its own merits, a mediocre beer. Light somewhat adjuncty malts, a fizz of grassy hops near the finish, which is thin and near empty. Forget it.

I swear this is Warsteiner Verum with caramel coloring added. If I were drinking this beer blindfolded I wouldn’t think it was dark. No hint of Chocolate or even Caramel malt. Has that same earthy gypsum flavor as the regular Warsteiner. Must be from the water supply but whatever that flavor is, I don’t like it. This is a very ordinary beer - not much different from Michelob Dark. Yawn.

Aroma was bad, not comproable to the complex taste. Very dark but not heavy beer, with a nice taste.
