Toasted nut on the nose that sticks around and blends well with simple syrup sweetness. Rich texture, not watery but also not at all heavy. No doubt this is all about the malt. There is enough bitterness to create a fairly clean finish-in this case the label is accurate. Really good stuff. ClarkVV (6642) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2017
Draught at Salty Pig, 3/4/17.Chalumeaux (1533) - Middleton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 26, 2016
Clear, milk chocolate with lighter amber tints and a small, beige head of low to moderate retention.
Grainy, caramel-laden malts also imbue light chocolate and slight red fruits in the nose as a bare, grassy, noble hop character adds a touch of levity. Mineral, yeast and bread sit on the end rather plainly, but do impart a freshness.
Soft, well-attenuated and leaning on the caramel malt for a light sticky sweetness as it mixes with the base malt. Lightly grainy and bready at times with low but moderately-engaging carbonation. Pretty standard, well-executed, traditional dunkel, on the lighter side. Won’t find any (American) hops here....
Poured from bottle thanks Chris DeMont amber brown with a tan head. Aromas of bread caramel nuts and toffee. Taste is sweet caramel brown bread toasty nut. JStax (6364) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear amber with a white head of foam. The aroma has roasty nuts, toffee, some burnt caramel. Sweet and toasty taste. Medium body and medium carbonation. WillRunForBeer (2623) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 5, 2016
12oz bottle from CBC. I was unable to see until I poured this and held the bottle to the light, that the "best by" date is just past... 09/21/16. Black lettering on a brown bottle with a brown beer inside, well, I guess it’s better than no date. Pours medium dark reddish brown with a light beige head. Aroma is caramel, brown bread, earthy spice. Flavor is brown bread, earthy spice, Mild tannic bitterness in the finish.

12oz bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a light beige head. Aroma is light roasted malt. Taste is the same but lacks the usual dunker sweetness. Overly yeasty. Very short finish. Light-medium body. Too carbonated. jsmerig (1578) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Pours a clear reddish mahogany. Taste is dark with a smokey peppery bite up front which blends nicely with a hint of maltiness.

Single bottle from Julio’s. Pours out a very beautiful clear mohogany brown. A seriously good looking brew! Light tan head settles to a thin lace. Light roasty aromas and flavors. Quite smooth and drinkable. Clean malty finish. Mep3222 (1542) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Caramelized malty aroma and flavor. Has an enjoyable malty sweetness, but still being easy drinking and not sweet. Lager funk is not really there. Nice dark malty beer. Really quite enjoyable and well done for a normal beer style. I like it.
