Very smooth, yet dark and flavorful. Dark lager describes it very well. It has the mild flavor of a lager with the boldness of a dark beer.

Pleasant surprise. Bottle pours caramel color with thick frothy off-white head with great lacing. Aroma sweet malts. Taste matches with sweet malts, caramel, toffee. Palate thick and carbonated, not syrupy. Finish slightly bitter hops but not overbearing and I’m not a big hops fan. Alcohol slightly evident. This is a very sweet beer and won’t appeal to everybody, but I enjoyed it.

Strykzone (5501) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2010
A big soapy tan head. Dark brown with lots of red and clear. Malty aroma. Flavor is faint chocolate chip cookies and dough. Expectations for this one were quite low and it was a pleasant surprise.

[Bottle] Pours a solid black color with a foamy tan head. Aroma of sweet molasses, vanilla and some earth. The taste is of sweet dark malts, grains, roast, some grass and cocoa. Dry and dusty finish. Prickly carbonation. This beer is pretty good, but a tad light in body.

bhensonb (12306) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Pours really dark brown with a foamy 3 finger beige head. Smells like sweet light roast malt. Med. minus body with light fizzy carbonation. Flavor is sweet mild roast malt. I’d believe dunkel. Sure there’s hop in here, but not sure what. Grassy?

Ughsmash (7353) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2010
500mL bottle. Poured clear iced tea brown with a short, tighter-bubbled beige head. The aroma picked up sweet caramel, molasses, and nutty notes with overtones of something meaty.. clean and calculated.. no complaints. The flavor found sticky honey and molasses the whole way through with sharp, almost metallic malty notes and nondescript bitterness taking over.. the malts made a final, diabetes-inducing push at the end, but the drink never regained pleasantness. Light-medium bodied, sweet, and sticky on the palate.. again, the sharpness was not enjoyable.

Bottle -- a gift. The nose is strongly savory -- smells like good beef stock or soy sauce, with overtones of pepper. Pours a nice red-brown with a faint head. The taste is strongly roasted, with herbal and spicy elements; there is no sweetness or softness anywhere. Crisp, angular carbonation. Very good.
