2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted in August 2011. Aroma is completely absent. Color is clear brown with a quite long lasting head. Taste is just a little bit hoppy but generally it is flat and tasteless. Just drinkable. Just like a commercial beer.

A decent brew from a decent brewery. Not always easy to get your hands on in Southern Ontario. It’s a clear muddy red colour with a thin head. Aroma is grainy, and the taste matches, although there are some sugary hints to enhance the palate.

Pretty good choice if you want a malty/slightly sweet brew that you can find a lot of places for a decent price. It does have a bit of a harsher bite at the end of it though.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml. can. Aroma is very light- almost non-existant. Roasted barley malt give this beer a nutty- toffee like taste; some hints of grass and coffee. Aftertaste is a heavy dark chocolate with hints of nuts and toffee- stays around for quite a while. Suprisingly light given the heavy dark appearance. Overall a pretty decent dunkel.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Couleur rouge-brun assez foncée avec une petite mousse ; assez mince et limpide. Odeurs de boisé et d’eau sucrée. En bouche, jus de raisin en fontaine, suivi par une finale légèrement maltée et caramélisée. Passablement aqueuse. Sans être lassante, elle n’est pas exactement passionnante.

Dark brown pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor have some very light roasted malt, as well as some light toffee. There is some grass hop character in the flavor, as well as a hint of coffee. Thin, watery mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma has notes of roasted and toasted cereal malts, caramel, bread and grass hops. Dark brown hue with an average off-white head that mostly diminished and left ok lace. Flavor is medium sweet and bitter. Palate is light bodied and watery average. Overall an okay roasty brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Biergarten. Pours a dark brown with light tan head, decent retention and lots of thin lacing. Aroma is moderately roasted, super nutty, toffee. Flavor is roasted malty, very nutty, caramel/toffee, caramelized sugar, very mildly burnt. One of the nuttiest malt profiles I have ever tasted. More roasted than the few dunkels I’ve had. Moderate carbonation and medium-light body. Very malty, nutty, toffee beer. Was pleasantly surprised by this one.
