12oz bottle. Filtered looking brown amber color. Unassuming mildly sweet aroma. The taste is pretty straightforward, with a crisp hop balance to the dark malt. Not exactly world class, but a pretty good session beer in a lot of respects. Easy drinking and smooth for sure. FROTHINGSLOSH (8308) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark ruby-brown color with a large khaki head. The aroma was lightly sweet and malty with a touch of malted milk and chocolate. The flavor was sweet, creamy and malty with a lightly bitter and roasty middle and noted of malted milk underneath. The finish was short tangy and bitter. Decent. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Toasty, dark malt with a light woody component. A little upfront sourness that segues into a mossy, earthy peice that is well suited to the creamy mouthfeel. keepersj12 (3142) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2008
About average right down the line. Nothing to go out of your way for. Kind of light and watery. popephred (272) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2008
BOTMC Selection November 2008: Poured from the bottle into a pint glass. Pour produced a red-brown body, topped by a medium head of tan foam, which lingered. Aroma is malty, with some caramel notes. Flavor is on the dry side with medium to light mouthfeel. Palate is slightly roasty, though not much else. An adaquate, though not outstanding brew.

has a good malt aroma to it, body seems a bit thin, has a little of a roast malt taste, but not much else. That1Guy (2241) - Colorado, USA - NOV 21, 2008
Another aight offering. Coffee and sweet malts on the nose. Little sweeter in the flavor. Little sweeter yet in the burp. Dunkels is a rare breed, innit? couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - NOV 20, 2008
It pours an almost clear, deep caramel with a creamy khaki head. The aroma is delicately malty, with a sweet caramel character and notes of fresh biscuits. There is also something of a metallic tinge to the aroma, probably because these are twist-off caps and the beer has been slightly oxidized.
The taste: remarkably clean. Dry, with touches of caramel malt flavor and toast. Again, there is the slightest bit of oxidation, likely my fault for treating this beer badly and drinking it old. The palate is wonderfully dry, with a smooth but not overpowering carbonation. I could easily have another. By the way, this one has left thick rings and serious honeycomb lacing on my glass.

Bottle courtesy of alexsdad06. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of dark fruit, earthy, tea, caramel, molasses. Tastes of tea and some caramel. Decent. Palidor19 (3194) - Brandon, Florida, USA - OCT 26, 2008
The beer pour a nice looking reddish brown, the malts are nice and slightly robust with a good amount of caramel. hops are almost non existent but the body is medium with a lively feel.
