AgentAle (1529) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 11, 2016
Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, toffee, fig and pecans. Taste is an almost chewy mouth feel of caramel and toffee with some very faint bittering hops that mellow out well. Appearance is a clear amber with a medium pearl head with lacing that retains fairly well.

Ritzn (461) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
Dark bronze with little dark beige head. Dark aromas like chocolate, smoke and dried fruit. Maybe some walnuts. Also a decent sour hop note. Taste is very bitter but likable. Thin texture, full body. I like it!

500ml brown bottle. Colour is brassy orange, crystal clear, a fat beige cap on top. Aromas of bread, toffee, light chocolate. Flavours of chocolate and caramel with a slight metallic note. Lightly toasted malt aftertaste with nutty chocolate malt. Quite a nice dunkel, better than expected and a very easy drinker.

reebtogi (5686) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2016
500ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some grassy and grainy notes. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with some grassy and herbal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with mediocre carbonation. Overall, this brew is quite sweet with a decent amount of bitterness, but how it won a World Beer Award in 2004 is beyond me.

wiedrzensky (775) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle. Pours is dark amber clear with thick stable tan head. Aroma is malty, light roasty, hazelnuts, very inviting. Taste is light sweet with a touch of coffee bittery, roasty mouthfeel. Light to medium body, nice creamy texture, awesomely well ballanced.
