Dark umber color with a seemingly fizzy tan head. Aromas seem a bit grainy and meaty. Why use those terms? I just fed the dog her Iams Mini Chunks, and this does seem to have a similar scent. Toasted malt, grains, caramel and hints of silage. Thicker feel. Flavors of caramel and mild dark breads. 3/12

Wässriger, ziemlich stark röstiger Antrunk. Fast verbrannt, ansonsten wenig aromatisch, leicht bitter. Steigende Malzigkeit zur Mitte, mild röstig-malziger Nachhall, in dem das BIer zum ersten mal rund erscheint. 9/6/7/8/5/7 Niko100 (2913) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 27, 2015

Bottle poured a clear brown hue w/ medium creamy tan head and minor lacing. Moderate sweet malty aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a faint bitter finish. Tastes are brown sugar, dark breads, molasses, and malt. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel and a dry finish. LinusStick (3456) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2014
Decent dunkel. Aroma was big and delicious. Strong malt backbone with fresh baked bread and caramel. Pour was a hazy dark brown with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was OK. Heavy roasted malt and caramel flavors with notes of toffee in the finish. Little to no carbonation is what hurt this beer. A little bubbles would’ve taken this beer a long way Frank (4190) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 30, 2014
This is my third in a row from this brewery and I am quite excited it is not terrible. This one actually smells and tastes like a German beer style. It pours a nice chestnut bronw w/ a fine-bubbled, large but short-lived head. It smells of caramel, cherries and a bit of almond along w/ some alcohol heat, which is strange for a low-gravity brew. This is mildly sweet with mild carbonation, which brings out some more nutty oxidized character. I suspect this may be either old, poorly brewed or mistreated but it actually worked out OK in this particular bottle. I would actually probably buy this again if I had any certainty that this beer actually normally tasted like this and I didn’t just have some random good luck w/ a bottle w/ beneficial oxidation.

Nice pig label. The b0dy is a clear chestnut c0l0r t0pped by a tall, pale tan head. The ar0ma is w0rty with0ut getting t00 sweet and has a splash 0f mineral water t0 it. It tasted rich and malty, caramel/toffee, again n0t t00 sweet, with a t0uch 0f ash. I liked this 0ne.
