2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, as "dark lager", small brownish stable head, dark brown colour with a touch of reddish streaks, aroma of dark bread with just a hint of roasted coffee that is not too aromatic, flavour is dominated by a malty roastiness that is unbalanced and bitter with some chocolate creeping behind, feels light bodied inspite of the relativly strong alcoholic content. Not the greatest of dunkels.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of bittersweet chocolate, apple, raisins and roasted coffee. Appearance is very dark cola brown with frothy 1/2 in. head in my stein; this head remained quite frothy well into the beer. Flavor starts out with chocolate/roasted flavors and moves to more apple/raisins/dark fruit; the finish comes through with some lemon-kissed herbal hops. Palate was bubbly and lively. Outstanding for the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle from Capital Market, Salem.$3.49
Im guessing this is this beer..the label is very different but the alc is the same and its called ’Dark lager Beer"
Nice brown with a garnet tinge to it beer, with a lovelly ,huge frothy,thick creme coloured head.
Aroma is mostly dark chocolate, weak coffees, and some breadiness.
Taste is mostly the same with some additions of dark dried fruits and a brisk hop note in the end.
Kinda thin but not too bad on the palate.
OK..but somewhat dissapointed given some of the earlier reviews..
IS this really the same beer?

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
500 ml bottle.
It pours a nice dark brown with reddish hues and a foamy off-white head that billows high, has great retention, and recedes with exceptional lace. This is perfection in appearance for this style.
The smell is decently hopped with a lot of lemon, and a hint of herbal spice. There is also a hint of cocoa and bread.
The taste is hoppy, but sweet. It is like a muenchener dunkel, I cold drink the fuck out of this all summer long. It has a nice lemony and herbal hoppiness that melds beautifully with a roasty chocolate edge.
Did I mention it goes down like super flavorful water that quenches your thirst like no other?
This beer kicks some major, major ass.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
