Toasty amber lager; slight smokiness, clean malt flavours; light finish let me down. urbnhautebourg (997) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - OCT 1, 2002
Beautiful ruby color with billowing head and lasting lace. Malt has spice, graininess, chocolate, fruitiness. Very complex, with hops in wonderful balance. My favorite dunkel. heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - SEP 10, 2002
Ruby amber, nice inviting sweet malt aroma. Smooth clean lager flavor with nice balancing hops, with some spicy malt flavors. Excellent dunkel. mmmmmmmm... jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2002
Copper/ruby colored. Thin but persisten head and lace. Aroma of malt,spicy hops,peas and others. Malt and caramel on the palate, hallertauer’s are fantastic giving the beer a nice spicy/sharp kick. Light fruitiness (strawberry) shows itself up front. Texture is a tad watery but its not even a distraction. Damn fine dunkel! HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 10, 2002
Straight ahead well made dunkel. Chill haze. A rare bottle conditioned lager. Very rounded and smooth. A lovely dark lager.

The Hallertau hops are barely noticeable. The ale is dark reddish in the glass and oddly, I may be able to taste the 5.5% alcohol. Very flavorful and tasty. bonvivant (169) - Smithfield, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2002
Nice color but the flavor was a little light. estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2002
Clear reddish body, rising carbonation, medium head. I do get the strawberries in the nose. Malty, not particularly sweet, with just a touch of bitterness in the finish. Very nice.
