Bottle at home with friends. Pour is clear brown with a light red tint and frothy tan head - good lacing. Grainy, biscuity, slight roast, husky, cereal, grassy, and slightly fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, husky, grains, toasted cereal, grass, light cocoa, and straw. Light body with medium carbonation. Easy drinking stuff, but may not be at its freshest.

Bottle from Market of Choice, Eugene. Pours a medium brown, little to no head. Aroma malty, grain, some slight biscuit and baking chocolate notes. Body thin and finish slightly lacking. Wonder if this is a bit too old?

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on 2/17/13 from a capped 650mL bomber bottle sent as an extra in a trade. Pours dark, nearly opaque amber with a thin tan head that slowly recedes to a decent collar of lace. The nose is malty, roasted, and nutty with lighter roasted coffee, cocoa nibs, and some nicely fresh and green hoppy aroma. The flavor is much the same with the nicely roasted notes up front with some nuttiness, moving to the more bitter notes of coffee and hops. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long nicely bitter roasted and hoppy finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a chestnut brown with an amber tinge and a small beige head. Aroma is very nutty, with some feint dried fruits. Flavour is quite nutty as well, with some subtle dark fruits, and some bready malts. Not sure why this is rated so high, as it’s fairly boring with a weak flavour palate. Drinkable, but generic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is nutty with hints of caramel and chocolate with some roasted and earthy notes as well. Taste is a roasted nutty and earthy bitterness balanced nicely with a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness. Lighter bodied than expected but with decent carbonation. An easier drinking dunkel that is quite tasty.
