Pours a copper brown color with a dense tan head. The smell is toasted malt, fruit, some caramel sweetness, a bit nutty. The taste is fairly sweet and malty up front, caramel, fruit, nutty ending dry with the toasted malt to balance. Medium- in body with average carbonation. Decent, a bit sweet and thick for the style though. Frank (4261) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2014
I’d say this is more of a Vienna or Oktoberfest but whatever. It is not that great one way or the other. It looks nice, bright red brown with a long lasting head. It is kind of sweet and bubblegummy. It had a nice toffee malt character but the fermentation character is off. It finishes with caramel sweetness and some earthy bitterness. jtclockwork (17654) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2014

22oz bottle 6/28/14 (Binny’s Naperville)-46° in Mug-Pours a medium brown with a big loose tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and chocolate. Taste of the same with some more sweetness. This light to medium bodied brew is not too shabby just not my cup of tea. jgb9348 (6590) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Nice crisp deep copper and light brown coloured body with a definite ruby glow and a smallish one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, toasted malt, tons of nuts, earth and a lot of malt bitterness. Medium-bodied; Rich toasted malt notes with the toffee, caramelised sugars and earth right behind. All with a touch of cherry and pit fruit flavours noticeable and a very light metallic twang near the end. Aftertaste shows a well rounded character of mostly caramel and toasted malt notes with a small bitterness and a sweet finish. Overall, a nice dunkles with a robust character and a rich toasted malt finish - well balanced and nice for the style!

From HyVee Springfield. Very good dunkle, sweet and toffee and a little roasted but measured. Especially in the sweetness, not too chewy or watery. Serving: Bottle Mittenator (1612) - Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2014
