3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
deep amber capped by a slight off white head with good retention. scent is pretty clean, hint of caramel and yeast. taste is trending sweet with toffee and worther’s origional like caramelly goodness, light grassyness. light bodied. This is a good beer, but not as good as another dark lager I just had from the brother neighbor to the east.

500ml bottle pours dark brown color with a finger of light tan head that leaves some spotted lacing. Aroma is light roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is light roasted malt and hoppy bitterness balanced with some chocolate and malty sweetness. A pretty well done dark lager that was quite refreshing and easy to drink.

Bottle - 500 mL called Zatec Dark Lager. Dark cola colored pour with a short, dense tan head. Aroma is slightly smoky with strong roasted malt, burnt caramel, dark bread, and sweet malt. Taste is slightly smoked roast malt, sweet malt, lighter caramel, coffee notes, faint chocolate, and dark bready notes. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more roasted malt, smoke, burnt caramel, coffee, dark chocolate and sweet malt notes. Seems more a schwarzbier as opposed to a dunkel.

Bottle shared by atom. Deep, rich maple color with a small white head. Aroma mainly consists of caramel, maybe some chocolate, and maybe some bread-like character. Taste has toast, raisins, slight caramel and toffee. Nice creamy, and lighter, body. Pretty damn good, especially considering I’m not a big fan of the style.
