Had to stop on the way home today for this one, since I cleverly didn’t try it the other day when at Emmett’s for the 1st Chicago RateBeerian meeting. Not a bad dunkel (Did Emmett’s misspell it this way?), pouring a deep amber-brown with a slender off-white head. The aroma is light but malty with hints of juicy fruits. The taste is sweet malt with the fruits turning darker. No detectable hops. Okay.SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2006

On tap at Emmett’s in Downers Grove while at the 1st ever Chicago Ratebeer meeting.

Darker amber with a thin tan-ish head. Nose fairly thin but with some malts and cream. Taste is maltish with some darker fruits and liquorice with just a hint of pepper. Overall, pretty good.
