3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice clear, dark pour, very pretty. However, the head is a little thin and doesn’t hang around compared to other dunkels I’ve tried. Taste is actually very good; toasted malt flavors remind me of molasses. Not much to speak of in the way of hops, but it’s just not that type of beer. Finishes well.
From Jul 2008
This pours a dark brown amber with a 2 finger head of off white foam.
The smell is typical for the style. Some weak notes of malt a touch of bitterness.
The taste follows the nose. Some noticeable hop bitterness up front with a weak, somewhat grainy malt presence. It's a bit too bitter for the amount of malt that hits my palate and overall, this one does not strike my fancy at all. One purchase is enough. jtclockwork (17604) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2016

Originally rated on 9/11/08. "Skunky sweet aroma, deep ruby brown body with a very thin head, no laceing present. Flavor of malt and strong metallic notes, i think i got a bad batch, I probably wont drink the other one i got, i am not sure if i will finish whats in my glass. willisread (3799) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Backlog. Pretty straightforward and mild dunkel. Easy drinking without any fuss and with a clean finish. Don’t mind this and honestly prefer it to the regular Becks. solidfunk (9720) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 1, 2016
Not a ton going on here but it’s drinkable at least, and a little better than regular becks. Dark brown pour with ok head. Light tangy finish. Not offensive, just boring. Bottle at press club.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Looks nice in the glass - clear ruddy dark color with one finger of dense tan head that settles to a persistent thin head. aroma has hints of roasted malts with a mineral / metallic overtone. Taste is sweet roasted malts up front and through the middle of the swallow but settles into a muddy sweet maltiness with metallic overtones at the end. No so good.

Bottle. Mahogany color with an off-white head. The aroma is slightly skunky. Flavor is roasted malt with a sweet but metalic taste on the finish. phaleslu (10889) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle at the Montgomery Inn Boathouse. Green bottle poured into a pint glass. It pours a somewhat cloudy brownish amber with a small off-white head. Notes of grass, leaves, tobacco, chocolate, caramel, sugars, and earth. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and an earthy, malty, damp mouthfeel. Not much to it. Inoffensive, and it works when you’re low on options. hauxe (1015) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 7, 2015
Starts nice, but the sweet rich taste dulls and flattens as the bottle progresses. Hints of roasted malts. Mediocre. ordybill (1815) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the Pub in Gettysburg, PA. This is a complete disappointment. The beer is a dark brown with a tan head and has a metallic odor to it. The flavor is dull and flat with a metallic flavor mixed with some malt, completely forgettable.
