Bottle/can. Shockingly this is a mass-market cheapie in Germany as far as I can tell. But man it is a good example of the style Dark brown/black w/medium head. Chocolatey/coffee taste. not too heavy either.

mattcoats (47) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 3, 2007
While lacking a significant aroma, this beer is very good for a "I just need a beer" kinda beer. There is certainly some coco and toffee with undertones of fruit and berry. A rich dirty head poured from the bottle creating a foamy goodness in my glass. Highly drinkable (and it was!).

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2009 Okay, since initial rate, have had a few times and can definitely appreciate the subtleties better. Nice dark brown with fluffy brown head. Nose is clean, a touch fruity and chocolate. Minimal roast in the flavor. Super drinkable and smooth with a touch of bitterness. Tasty stuff.
