The idea of a dark lager at first sounded like a bit of a joke, but this beer proved me wrong. Cannot speak highly enough of this beer. A perfect bitterness complemented by a lasting head and deep caramel colour. Brilliant execution of a difficult style to master. A must try. mkel07 (6462) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2009
330ml bottle. Thick ruby brown in colour with a frothy tan head - looks great in the glass. Aroma of toffee and caramel with a hint of chocolate. Smooth with a taste of burnt chocolate. Thinner in body than it looks in the glass. Fresh feel in the mouth and overall very good. drpimento (3799) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Nice beer! Poured at a good temperature with a smallish, tan head that was quick to settle and no lace. Color is a clear brown tinted ruby. Aroma is a nice blend of malt, roast, toffee, cocoa, bit of smoke, maybe hint of anise. Flavor’s like nose, tang, malt, in front, then sweet, wit roast and smoke, cocoa, toffee, caramel. Body/carbonation good. Finish is like flavor, average length, very drinkable - have to go to the hotel bar to get more or maybe nearby bottleshop if I’m lucky. beerledgend (1196) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 13, 2002

Loved it. Has that nice chocolate/caramely nose to it. Comes in with a whack of toffee malty flavor that is balanced nicely with just enough bitterness. head retention was fair to poor. Poured to a very deep brown and a coarsely beaded head.
