A very pleasant, smooth dark lager! Subtle notes of chocolate, fig, caramel, and even some coffee. Noticeable but subdue hops. This is definitely an Octoberfest staple for those liking dark seasonal beers. For those that hardly drink a darker beer or not sure if they will like one this one is a great starting point! Recommended!

Clear dark mahogany pour with a large beige head and great retention. Good lacing. Smooth and flat mouthfeel. Light sweet toffee and caramel malt flavor. Not smoky.

Tap. Exceptional beer. Aromas of chocolate, vanilla, and liquorice. Taste was sweet, with long length. Palate was velvety, with a thin-to-medium body. Brown, with a frothy white head.

An easy drinking light beer. Nothing crazy or fancy but it has it’s own special characteristics and flavors. I would buy again. It’s okay. Julie does NOT like this one...

Deep clear mahogany brown. Off white head that starts about a half in or so and levels to film like cover. The spicy caramel malt aroma is subtle. Sweet rich toasted on the tongue. Has a spicy Earth like quality. Has a pleasantly and sweet after taste. Leaves me wanting more and I do. I’d certainly recommend this one.

Tried it on tap at HB Munich in Summer 2015. My wife and I were pleasantly impressed. A bit too sweet for the godson. Although, they enjoyed the pretzel. lol

Now this is an impressive beer. Beautiful, rich, dark red-brown colour. Sizeable head. Possibly just the tiniest bit too thin, but this does not detract too much overall. Long, smooth caramel flavouring, with the slightest hints of coffee and chocolate. A very good beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Presentation: It was poured from a green 11.2oz bottle into a Pilsener glass. The bottle has no freshness date or any info other than the style.
Appearance: Its body has a deep burnt coppery color with lighter amber highlights and good clarity. The pour produces a tall, foamy, light tan head with a mix of small tightly packed bubbles and bigger soapy quick fading bubbles. The settles down to a thin cap of tiny bubbles that makes very nice lacing on the glass.
Smell: The nose is full and rich. There are solid notes of caramel and bready maltiness followed up by some floral/mineral like German and Czech noble hops.
Taste/Palate: As in the aroma the flavor has nice caramel/bready maltiness and noble spicy/floral hops in good balance with a slight edge to the malt. In the finish it quickly fades to dryer mellow hop bitterness. The body has a medium to full body with a smooth, not to thick/not to thin, texture and carbonation.
Notes: This is another all-around solid beer with good balance and drinkability.

On tap at Rosie’s Wine bar. Pours ruby with a long lasting white head. Aroma is of grain, toffee and honey. Medium, slightly crisp body. Toffee toasted malt, noble hops and some cloves combine on the palate for a clean, fresh taste. Long hoppy finish is supported by sweet malt. This is a world-class dunkel.
