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.robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2004

Light roasted, ligth smoked and yeasty aroma. Dark ruby colour, light brown frothy head, nice lace. Light sweet, hints of coffee and chocolate. Moderate full. Pretty Dunkel!
Had in Bottle. Not overly impressed. Had at O.C. Little Malt and Carmel. Not the worst. Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2004
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. Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2004
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. Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2004
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....

Brown color with a bone colored moderate head. Smells like toasted whole wheat bread and mild coffee (not just for breakfast). Lightly roasted sweet nut flavor. Smooth body. If anything would like a bit more roasted malt to offset the sweetness. A mid echelon dunkel. raymow (1650) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Tasted like a typical German dunkel. My only complaint was that it seemed rather flat. Kind of a dull beer - nothing interesting, just drinkable, nothing more. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2004
My bottle says 4.5%? Poured slightly hazy dark brown with a small short lasted tan head. Aroma of sweet malt and roast grain. Smooth thin-medium mouthfeel. Flavour is rather bland, just nice sweet malt with a roast finish. Not bad stuff. Not great either. SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2004
Big tan head. Deep copper red. Light palate, carbonation not evident, smooth but quickly gone. Quite a flat caramel malt. Very mild bitterness kicks in some time after swallowed. This is nice. Also very cheap for an import ($2.59 Dan Murphy's Hornsby). The kind of beer you would want to have a case sitting around for an impromptu drinking demonstration with friends.

Garnet color with frothy tan head. Malty, bready, slight coffee aroma. Flavor had some sweetness and body to it. Very good.
