very weak palate. Very light in color. aroma is alright but could definitely use work . overall i’m disappointed in it. reebtogi (6261) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2011
650ml bottle pours a reddish brown color with about a finger of white head which settles slowly leaving some thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts with some dark fruit. Taste is light roasted malt sweetness with some dark fruitness and a light hoppy bitter finish. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation leave a nice mouthfeel. This is a well done lager with qualities of a German bock and quite tasty. madvike (3260) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours with a creamy tan head on a dark cola body. Dark bready malt on the nose, with light yeast, baking spices, and a pleasant blend of nuttiness and milkiness. Taste is pumpernickel bread--pretty dry with a hint of brown sugar and a pretty milky finish. There’s a sharpness in there too--not sure if that’s the hops or a little roasted malt. Creamy and smooth in the mouth. Didn’t know what to expect, as I know little about this style, but I was pleasantly surprised. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2011
On tap at Fremont Oktoberfest Seattle, WA. Pours dark brown with shades of black...no head, white lacing, and evidence of little carbonation. Slightly roasted aroma and light fruity esthers. Close your eyes and it might as well be BMC beer in this cup. No roasted nor toasted flavors present. Slightly medicinal finish and astringent mouthfeel. Rough finish to say the least. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2011
Bottle:   Deep ruby, heavy on the brown hues, moderate to large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft roasted malts and whole wheat bread on the nose.   Soft ash and roasted malts up front, but they die rather quickly.   Beer seems a little lighter/thinner than I remember it being.   Its clean, but not terribly robust.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but leaning towards the thin side.   Yeah, finishes clean and fairly smooth, but just lacks some more depth and body.   Not bad tho.

22 oz. bottle from trade (I can’t remember who). Pours a clear deep reddish brown with a small off white ring. The aroma had an initial sweet maltiness with touches of dark fruit, light floral and the slightest nuttiness. The flavor is dark fruits, some roasted malt, floral, dusty almost char, and lightly nutty. The finish is dry with a light bitterness.

22 oz. bottle Translucent brown with a wispy head. Slight nuttiness, but mainly I’m smelling dark fruit -- figs, for me. Not much of an aroma, in fact, this beer isn’t pungent whatsoever. The head faded away rather quickly. The flavor is a bit dull. The beer has some nuttiness, and sweetness coming from the malts, but not much. This beer is quite boring, and texture isn’t great either. I should have possibly imbibed this at a much cooler temperature. Tmoney99 (14455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottle f6 at Natifest 10. Poured dark brown with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly diminished with fair lacing. Medium roasted dark chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium dark toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of average duration.

Aroma of chocolate and light caramel. Appearance is dark brown with tan head; not much carbonation. Flavor matches the nose, with light toasted malts becoming more apparent. Palate is creamy and smooth. A pretty mundane dunkel.
