UPDATED: APR 28, 2020 Wow. Deliciously malty dark lager. Super easy to drink. As good as you're gonna get without buying a ticket to Prague! mansquito (10880) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2020 Draught at Glorietta Baldy: pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is dark fruits, nutty, molasses, light hints of chocolate and coffee. Slightly roasty. Nice chewy texture. Mild bitterness and light sweetness. Quite good. Slipstream (3140) - USA - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 On draft at Kingsbridge Social. A nice dunkel, with a solid bready flavor. Lightly hopped, with a lightly sweet, malty aroma. A dash of roasted malt bitterness too. tapefuzz (1934) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 7, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2019 On tap at brewery. Pours a hazy mahogany with a moderate, frothy beige head. Aroma is nuts, cocoa, toffee, yeast, and light earth. Taste is nuts, spice, cocoa, toffee, earth, and slight berry. Coffee in the finish and lingering. Dry. Light-medium body. Moderate carbonation. Fluffy-smooth mouthfeel. nimbleprop (11385) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2019
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2019 On tap at Churchkey, pours a translucent, murky dark brown with some khaki head. Nose is quite nice, malty, dry bread, a little date, yeast. Flavor has some tamarind maybe, malt, bread, yeast. Finishes medium bodied, dry. Exceptionally well made and spot on for the style.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2019 Very nice stuff for a dunkel. Sharp roast and a bite of dark chocolate like you stole some kid's candy on Halloween. Black pour with good head and lacing. Light bitter end. Very well balanced and belongs near top of category. Tap at Churchkey. mcox90 (2611) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2019 16 oz can. Dated 03/26/19. Pours mahogany/chestnut brown with a one finger off white head. Light caramel malt aroma. Flavor notes include caramel malt, dark dried fruits and earthy, floral hops which give the beer a gentle bitterness. Medium bodied. Nice! johnnnniee (5615) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 20, 2019
UPDATED: APR 20, 2019 Can from Candia Rd
Dark brown in color brilliant clarity, small off white head dissipates quickly. Rich toasted bread with dark dried fruits and a bit of floral and earthy hops to counter. Really tasty beer. tfontana (2575) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2019
UPDATED: APR 8, 2019 Can pour into nonic pint glass. Appearance is clear dark brown (more ruby to mahogany with light source directly behind) with trace sparkle, finger-width foamy beige head with fair retention and trace lacing. Aroma is combination roasted malts with earthy bitterness. Taste is same combination as aroma but slanted a bit to the earthy bitterness side, mild nuts. Palate is medium side of light-to-medium bodied with smooth texture, average carbonation with more pronounced roasted malts in the roast/earthy bitterness mix at the finish than the rest of the taste. Overall, I think pretty true to the style with perhaps more 'noble-type' earthy hop bitterness than expected. Good, but I get more excited about a Black IPA, Porter or Stout of one form or another. puboflyons (4197) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 31, 2019
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2019 From the 16 oz. can dated 021919. The pour is dark brown with ruby red hues glistening in the background under a modes, fading tan head. Forward roasted and char malt character in the aroma along with a lower profile floral hop sensation. Smooth, medium body. Roasted sweetness and a burnt yet clean finish in the taste.
