wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Nice brown pour with a relatively thin brown head. Looks like the Doppelbock. Smells like chocolate, caramel and coffee. The taste was great for a low alcohol beer with a terrific caramel and wine mouthfeel. What a pleasant surprise.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - JUN 1, 2005
(on bottle; thanx Yogi) Brandy brown, maybe at bit darker. Aroma of malts and a twik of sour mash. The coarbonation is high, but is balanced good by a fist full of good malts. Has a child-like, milkchocolately finish; my kid at 1 year diged it a lot.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 18, 2005
Pours a deep dark brown and mostly hazy with a moderate head and good lacing. Aroma is at first- sweet and slightly aromatic/munich malt. Then turns to caramel and a hint of fruitiness and chocolate. Flavor has a lot of munich and choclate with just a hint of bitter hops in the end to make it smooth. Very nice dunkel. Im sure this was on the shelf for a while but somehow it tasted really fresh- just like the ones I used to drink in germany.

shrubber85 (7295) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Bottle. A chocolate and coffee malt aroma. Reddish brown color with small head. Sweet chocolate malt flavor with only slight bitterness. Not a great deal of body. Nice but on the weak side.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 13, 2005
This beer looks picture perfect in the glass, but its all downhill from there. The nose is mainly spicy (classic German herbs). The palate is dry light and drinkable, but lacks any real German malt character. A nice dark lager, but this beers lacks too many key elements.

maeib (8574) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2005
Bottled. A dark reddy brown coloured beer with no head. The aroma has caramel, chocolate and a little licquorice. The taste is fairly sweet and nutty with caramel, licquorice and toffee. It is medium bodied and leans toward a weaker version of the Asam Bock. Tasty.
