3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 65 cl. Clear reddish brown with a small cappucino-colored head. Delicious toasted caramel-malty nose with notes of licorice. Taste is toasted almost burned bready malts with light coffee notes and sweet licorice accents. Some berry-like notes as well. Medium body. Lightly bitter finish.
Roast and light hint of oak. Comes off a little sour. Perhaps something off with the lines at Birch and Barley. Id say it’s good but not really a dunkel. Light tangy finish. Tap. GenDV138 (7232) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUN 4, 2017
4 oz pour on draft at ChurchKey. Dark brownish black with beige head. Aromas of grains, slight dark fruit. Tastes of dark fruit, grains, raisins. Light body with a dry finish. Nice dunkel. ABT_S54 (352) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2016
Deep garnet with a beige and voluminously foamy head which lasts well and gives the beer a lighter feeling. Aroma is caramelised toffee, with maybe a slightly nutty backdrop which almost exactly mimics the taste. A slight amount of bitterness to counteract the sweet caramel taste and a perfectly gauged mouthfeel to complement both the level of carbonation and the ABV. A very easy drinking and (relatively) low ABV beer to enjoy all night. Nothing spectacular but sometimes you just fancy a very well executed and balanced low ABV beer and at this Hot Rocks excels. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments.

Le nez est ferreux, hyper caramélisé et cendré avec des signaux de fumée. Je suis complètement pris par surprise par celle-là, on croirait un decoction mash. Les minéraux sont vraiment palpable, comme boire une bière flitrée par un bloc de granite. Buvabilité volcanique sans équivoque.

Bottle, courtesy of Mr Gretton. Dark red brown with a large pillowing foam. Aromas are cookie dough malts with nutty cocoa powder and light coffee. Yeasty with hints of cherry cola. Bready yeast with raisins and a woody, mineral character. Flavours are toasted dark toffee malts with earthy, nutty notes. Raisin fruitiness with dark cherries and chocolate. Nutty and roasted on the finish. Good. wlajwl (6751) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Aroma is malts, toffee and mildly smoky. The flavor is malts/dark malts, mildly smoky, a mineral/metallic hint and a sweet/slightly sour finish. GRM (4021) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015

Bomber into a glass. Pours a deep and dirty mud brown mixture with no clarity. Huge frothy medium white brown head, extensive lacing, retains well. Aroma of coffee, cherry, brown malts, a relaxed vibe to the nose, some choco, and velvet frosting, a small booze kick mixed in. Taste of a solid brown lager, just fluid with an easy going lager kick, grass, some soft citrus tones, carbonation is perfect and adds to the relaxed vibe. Abv settles in accordingly, I wish this was more readily available, like in six packs, a nice beer here, perfect lager. rdixon77 (2767) - Georgia, USA - MAR 27, 2015
Old rating. Cool beer. Light brown color. Sweet, smoky, with almost chocolate and coffee tones. Mild bitterness and medium bodied. Good balance and drinkable.
