Dark brown color, big beige head. Caramel aroma with notes of honey. Creamy palate with medium body, no carbonation to mention. Strong chocolate flavor is cut nicely by biting hops. Nice lace in glass, chocolate taste lasts long. Dimensional world class dunkel for my taste!

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Brown color, earthy aroma. Like a roasty lager, with a smoothness to it. Malty, sweet, toasty, roasty. Very drinkable and a good choice for a session beer.

Draught version tried at the Brewery tap
A Brown beer with little head retention, aroma of caramel. A solid flavour of chocolate malt and caramel with light hopping. The taste does linger but is not a complex one. The bottled version is slightly sweeter but with a pronounced CO2 bite.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma light roasted and dirt. Brown color, light brown head, good lace. Light sweet, grass, light roasted, light licorice, thin but still a little sticky. Not bad at all but it has this earthy aroma and flavor in the background which I didn’t like.

Hoppy and mocha nose. Cola coloured and perfectly clear with a tiny head. Sweet mocha and malty flavours that get become quite dry in the aftertaste.

Pleasant light hop and malt aroma. tastes of deeply roasted barley malt, but for those who do not like a dry beer, this is not a good choice. Only fair head retention.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brewed under contract. I'm not sure if this beer was supposed to be a copy of a rauchbier, bur it did a pretty good job of it! A reddy-brown colour with a pronounced kippersmoke nose. More smoke in the flavour, joined by sweet roast nuts and toast, then a smokey, complex finish. Unusual and well flavoured, but I can't help wondering if it was intentional? surely not....
