Dark brown colour. Fairly bland caramelly character. Light accents of crackers and molasses. Moderate body. Sweet finish. Malts are a bit thin. Pretty standard macro dark. bhensonb (15187) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Nice and roasty malt aroma. Really dark amber/brown with a vigorous tan head. Starts quite sweet, and the carbonation is very subdued. There’s an interesting herbal/veg accent I can’t place. Works nicely with the toasted malt flavor. Nice for a change. Tmoney99 (14455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2006

Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Dark brown color with virtually no head. Very little flavor, just a little malt with a pinch of hops. Unimpressive. crossovert (12874) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 11.2 oz green bottle, I’m hoping for no skunkage.
It pours a dark brown with a hint of reddich/orange/gold. The head is fizzy and off-white.
The smell is classic, no skunk here. It has caramel, cocoa, and dark bread. Along with this is some honey and some light husky grain. I’m not really smelling any hops.
The flavor is excellent, everything you want in a dunkel. It is smooth and caramally with some cocoa, raisin, and munich malts. The hops are present in the flavor and add a little zest to it.
It is extremely drinkable. A winner.
