a medium bodied dark lager with whiffs of chocolate. Not too great and a bit thin, but not bad.

This is a very fine beer...and you should try it. On opening,sharp but malty(oxymoron I know)...pours a nice glowing chestnut gold black.Guinness style coloured head but without the density. On taste:Sharp and hoppy yet with a nice blend of crystal and black malt,a real full flavour,mildly nutty and earthy in a dirty sort of way.Not Burnt like most examples. The finish is sharp like a expensive cheddar and dry. the body is outstanding for a lager.

Hermann's has a nice flavour to it, a little watery but the best beer I've had from Vancouver Island Brewery.

Dark brown-black with a short tan-coloured head. Deliciously strong smell of toasted grain, chocolate, and bitter hops. Taste starts as delicious caramel, roasted malt, and hops, but quickly transitions into a long, unpleasant tinny finish. Not very well balanced, but would be fantastic without the metallic end on finish.

jonas (7549) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2003
Aroma hard to detect Dark red-brown, lowish head. Slight malt taste which lingers a bit, generally too bland however.

Quite a nice beer. Dark body with a good tan head. Very nice malts in the nose and flavour. Nice tasty finish.

An odd, indescribable smell wafts from the glass. Sits in the glass like a black elixir. This came as perhaps one of the most pleasant surprises of my beer sojourn to Vancouver. More than a lager with dark food coloring, this possessed complexity and malty character that made me contemplate its depths. Bravo!

Deep brown color. Lightly roasted malt nose.Malt palate throughout, with very soft hops.
