Draft at the source. Hazy brown color. Aroma of tiast and cocoa. Taste has soma cocoa as well, and burnt toast. Decent. DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 19, 2013
Bottle. Nice deep copper orange, frothy beige head. Low aroma of grainy caramel. Same flavours on the palate, grainy caramel, a little bready perhaps. Just okay. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Draft at NCBC. Pours a murky and very dark mahogany. Impressive coloration. Loose filmy tan head. Light sheety lace. Virtually no nose, good or bad. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Light toasty caramel on the mid palate but not a lot of other flavors showing. Mild finish. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle:   Ruby in color, thin to moderate foamy tannish head, little lacing.   Soft biscuit and bready nose.   Heavy biscuit on the tongue, bready, slight cough syrup like qualities.   A bit too sweet and bready at times.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Hard to even finish a 12oz bottle of this.   Too bready, biscuity, sweet, and with too much cough syrup. riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Green apple like all of their beers on the nose caramel and some bread. Pours hazy golden amber. Thin head. Flavora of caramel and green apple. Tangy crisp hops. Unremarkable.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Andrew (and Eugene for your rating that inspired us to open this tonight). Fizzy offwhite foam, quickly dissipates to a soapy ring. Dark brown cola with clear edges. Construction isn’t particularly German, under the yeast especially. Malt is a nice dark continental flavor, a little roast. A touch sweeter than expected. Eugene, I agree that this is surprisingly good (unknown US brewery doing a German style? Usually bad) but man I disagree on the final score. Not bad. travita (4988) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle. The look is clear, beige colored head, dark brown cola look. The smell is malt, grain, sweet, and ok. The taste is sweet, malt, grain, too sweet, cola. jkwalking05 (4731) - Arlington, Texas, USA - AUG 24, 2014
12 oz bottle. Brown with a decent cream colored head. Aroma is of malt, toast, light nuttiness, and burnt toffee. Taste is of brown sugar, toast, roasted malts, and pecan shells. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours a rather dark brown color with a small light tan head on there. Nose is very light for me, with only hints of bread and toast to it. Taste is also pretty light, though stronger, and comes off as a bit sweet, nutty, and toasty. Light drink, but nothing remarkable. beastiefan2k (3901) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a mini willibecker glass. Pours [surprisingly] dark brown with a medium head. By looking at it I would guess its a Vienna or even Schwarz before Marzen. Head fades to a surface covering lacing. Aroma is toasty malt with some noble hop character and a mild wet brown bread. All very well melded, well attenuated, lagered malt sweetness. Flavor has more of the black bread touches and ends with a light lingering noble hop character. Perfectly clean, nice soft carbonation, sweetness from malt character only, very nice lagering. Clean, short aftertaste. This was a real surprise and a real treat.
