Alengrin (4329) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
Bottom-fermented dark lager from an American brewpub also brewed under license by Anker Brauerei in Nagold, Germany. Tasted at Delirium Café in Brussels years ago. Aroma of soy sauce, coffee grounds, chocolate, dark fruits, sherry; soft sweetish taste, granular mouthfeel but otherwise thinnish (as expected from a 4.6% ABV lager), mild roasted bitterness in the finish. Seems to hesitate whether it wants to become a Dunkel or a Schwarzbier.

Lutz2jm (252) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Light toasted flavor. Slight sour aroma that is not really noticeable when you are drinking. Drank this from a bottle from Trio in the OBX of NC. Probably would not get this one again.

Nickls (2336) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle. Pours nearly black with no head. Slight chocolate, toffee, earth, and fig notes in the aroma. Flavor is very similar, slight sour dark fruit note, toasty finish. Lighter body. Not bad at all.

rdixon77 (2247) - Georgia, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Dark brown to amber pour. Roasted and smoky malts in the aroma. Taste adds some caramel and hop bitterness. A little metallic. Mouthfeel was nice. Paired well with smoked boston butt I was eating.
