Bottle. Pours a very dark red with a lasting tan head. Earthy aroma. Tastes very malts; notes of nuts, chocholate, toffee. Earthy hop bittneress. Finishes with a burnt earthiness. Very smooth. Medium-bodied. Very drinkable... pictoman (1126) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 4, 2015
Poured from 341mL bottle. Mahogany dark brown with beige head. Lighter-to-medium roast malt. That’s about it. Not bad. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2004
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. Malakin (470) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 26, 2004
Hermann's has a nice flavour to it, a little watery but the best beer I've had from Vancouver Island Brewery. TimE (5808) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 28, 2004
a medium bodied dark lager with whiffs of chocolate. Not too great and a bit thin, but not bad.

Sweet medium roasted malt that seemed to be a bit like a bock. Medium bodied, slightly oily texture. Smooth mellow with bunch of soft malt. Short finish. Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2004
Dark brown colour. mild roasted malt nose. roasted malt taste with faint hops. MrRoss (646) - Delta, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Not the best beer I’ve had from this brewery, but still drinkable. Poured a very dark amber colour (like a Coke!) along with an almost brown foamy head. Aroma was a teeny tiny bit of malt matched with some light hopping. Taste was rather more malty and also had some coffee in there as well. v1rgil (151) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2010
Really nice aroma and malty head. Was excited to try this and was not dissapointed. Great Dunkel manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 14, 2011
On tap at the Billy Bishop legion in Vancouver. Pours a medium dark brown with decent off white head. Aroma is sweet medium roasted malt, a tad thin. Medium bodied, slightly oily mouthfeel. Taste is smooth and mellow with a bunch of soft malt. Short finish. Reasonable but far less than exciting.
