COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Bottle from Bev Mo La Mesa. Pours a deep, dark amber with a off white head. Nose is abundant with chocolate, plums, raisens, and malt. A very good Dunkle.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - MAY 10, 2006
Bottled. Pours a clear mahogany color with a huge ivory head. Smells like sweet wort! It makes me want to brew today. Sweet, malty flavor with some dark fruits and a bit of yeastiness. Clean and easy to drink.

rebelbrewer (125) - Lithonia, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2006
500 ml bottle - Poured up a very deep amber color with about half an inch of creamy off white head. The head was slow to diminish so I drank it. Nice lacing was left on the glass. The aroma was of sweet malt and a hint of spice. The taste is lightly sweet and finishes with a tang that may come from the carbonation. Very clean aftertaste. Nice brew.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2006
16.9oz - Aroma of toasted malts and sprouts. A little nutty. Pours transparent red-brown with medium head and good lacing. Flavor is toasty, earty, malty, with barley, sprouts, and nuts. Palate is kind of thin and sticky. Not bad

henrikb (1263) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 16, 2006
Brown with clear red shine, big bubbled head stays long, leaves laces; Huge nose, deep, first loads of grapefruit (like the carbonation blows in your face), later notes of soil, dark baked white bread, loads of character; Quite bitter/ acidy body, a bit to the watery thin side; Long but again watery thin finish that has a chewy bitterness and the same aroma as the nose. I find that the character of nose and body isn’t all that coherent.

MoritzF (9624) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 9, 2006

Sweetbitter flavour, medium body, very smooth mouthfeel. Sweet toastmalty taste with caramel and herbal hops; medium dry lingering toasty and hopbitter finish with a lasting aftertaste.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Tasty, with a hint of spice. Pours a golden-brown with good head. Finish was okay, but not as long or good as I was hoping.

pivnizub (10401) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2006
Bottle (best regard to joss): Dark amber coloured with red sparks, small, stable beige head; stronger aroma of roasted malt with a touch of coffee (almost a smoked aroma); slightly sweetish flavour with some bitterness in the wings; slightly sweetish, but later dry "roasted" malty and bitter finish. A light bodied goodie.........
