Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left very light lacing on the glass. Dry, nutty aroma, also some toffee, butterscotch, and spicy cinnamon. Taste of caramel and toasted malt, light bread, nutty with light bitterness. Average mouthfeel. artistsatwork (25) - USA - DEC 1, 2006
Can your ideas of a canned beer.
Mix it into a sixpack of someone’s regular beer.
Nice head with great taste. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2010
12 oz can poured into a pint glass (should I have used a pilsener?). The color is a hazy red and the appearance is so inviting. The head is quite fluffy. The smell is like bread. The taste is pretty good considering I usually only drink ales. The taste is bready as well and reminds me of an Oktoberfest beer. Man I suck at reviewing beers. This one is good and I am glad to have tried it. Thanks go to nflmvp for sending this my way.

Can from Barley’s and Hops. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey head. A nice light nutty and caramel malt nose. The flavor is very good; smooth, rich toast, light coffee, fruity, caramel, very good. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Pours deep copper/brownish with medium, off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, brown sugar. Tastes very malty, with some toffee, cognac, giving way to almonds and a hint of cabernet. Very complex with a smooth, albeit slightly watery mouthfeel. Very good, as usual from the Fox, but not a standout.

Had this in the winter. Nice brown color, with aroma of malt and brown sugar. Tastes malty, with a nice toffee and slight hoppy finish.
Draught at Sly Fox Royersford. Clear metallic amber body with a soft, off-white head. Rich but mellow caramelization in the nose with notes of dark bread crusts, almonds, and grapes. Pleasant toasty malt profile with moderate sweetness, light bitterness, and nice lager yeast qualities. Medium-light body with some palatable malty texture. Decoction pays off in this very solid dark lager (at least on draught).

Appearance :Light brown with amber ruby light see trough, good well build rocky crown on top. Good lacing 4+
Nose :Fresh malty nose, hint of caramel and aromatic mineral hops with bit of nutmeg. Pleasant.7+
Medium bodied. Mineral character up front with sweet caramel middle. Toasty malts with hint of burnt on side. A bit short finish. Medium high carbonation. Refreshing in hot summer day. Perhaps a bit too harsh and short lived character but solid overall proper dunkel from PA.
Growler: Poured a dark brown with not a lot of head. The aroma was earthy. The flavor was good with a roasted malt and caramel. Overall, its one of the better Lagers out there
