Draught at Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Pours a very dark amber-brown, almost black, with a small diminishing tan head. Aroma is slightly roasty along with some chocolate, dark fruit and molasses. Flavour, which is a touch watery, consists of lightly roasted caramel malt, coffee, cocoa, a hint of hops and a light bitter finish. Average bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Not a bad Dunkel at all, I liked it. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 24, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2006 On tap at the Bavarian Inn Deep dark brown pour, with a creamy even tan head. Light soy and toasted oat aroma. Tinge of cofee. Moderately watery tobacco, charred oak and toast. Seems more like a schwarzbier. Light molasses and tinge of grass in the finish of hops. A light sour aftertaste. jercraigs (11071) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2007
Draft at Coles in Buffalo. Black body with a small tan head and nice lacing on the glass. (3+) Moderately roasty mocha aroma. (6+) Roasty toasty malt up front in the flavour, sweet mocha, moderate bitterness is more from the roast than any perceptible hops (6+). Average palate. Well crafted but not really up my alley.

Draught. At Cole’s, Buffalo, NY. Clear ruby-black with a small off-white head. Dry roasty coffee aroma, prune and light caramel malt, maybe some vague dry hops in the mix. Dry taste too, roasted coffee beans, green peaches and dry floral hops. Light, sticky body, nice bit of astringency, weak carbonation and a very quick finish - slight bitter roasty linger. Went down easy. Dogbrick (14292) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Bottle from the wine shop at Bavarian Inn. The beer pours dark brown with a thin and foamy beige head that recedes slowly. Sticky sheet of lacing on the glass. The aroma is roasty with notes of malt and chocolate. Medium body that gets progressively thinner. There is a roasty chocolate malt character with traces of hops. The finish is dry with a roasted coffee aftertaste that is short-lived. Decent overall.

Bottle courtesy of Dogbrick. Pours darkest brown with a medium off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma with some hop. Smells like a good sweet stout. Flavor is sweet up front with a somewhat dry finish, but the flavor disappears really quick. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 8, 2006
Goodbar beer club. Nose is chocolate, nearly burnt malt, some iodine & burnt notes. Flavor is very dark (nearly burnt) malt, cocoa, maybe a little diacteyl. Suddenly goes from rich to a dry burnt (vaguely smoky) finish. DrewTaylor (154) - Michigan, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Very nice dark beer. Deep brown color with a suprisingly small head. Deep flavor with molasses finish. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2007
