Onslow (1273) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 25, 2011
Pour from a 500 ml bottle. Dark brew with a huge head that needed some time to simmer down. Aroma of roaster malts, chocolate. taste is somewhat sweet, chocolate malts, with a very fine bitterness that neutralizes the sweet in the finish. Very well balanced. Rather thin palate and light mouthfeel. A superior dunkel.

A little bit of a hop bite to it, otherwise a good maltiness to it, a pretty good regular dunkel.

dmac (4728) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2011
500 ml bottle. Poured a dark chocolate brown dense body underneath a huge pillowy creamy beige head. Aroma is dusty with lots of grain, chocolate and cola. Flavor is similar to the aroma but has a touch of sourness at the front that fades by midtaste. Smooth body with a Medium mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Really good for the cheap price.

phaleslu (7600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2011
500 ml bottle shared by Matt at The Royale, but he picked it up at Randall’s. Pours a dark brown-amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of mixed malts, musky grains, dust, toast, and a little cardboard. Flavor of sweet and dark malts, dust, more grains, brown sugar, leaves, and wet paper. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a malty, dank mouthfeel. There is also a hint of smoke forming as this beer warms. Not bad, but not really my thing.

16.9 oz bottle. Pours burgundy brownish with 2-finger off-khaki head. Nose is earthy broiwn sugary malt. Tastes malty, on the sweet side, earthy, with some chalky and nutty notes late. Overall, this is a pretty decent dark lager.
