Bottle best before August 1, 2005. Poured a medium to dark, cloudy brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toffee and caramel. Tastes are on the subtle side (stronger aromas). Holdwine (1233) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Decent enough maltiness, with wisps of a nut brown ale? Caramel and some citrus make it very drinkable. axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Pours dark brown with a small, tan head. Sweet carmel, malt, and nutty aroma. Flavor is all carmel malts. Very sweet. Medium-bodied. Pretty good. jeffin7 (613) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours clear dark brown. Aroma of caramel and sweet malt. Flavor is sweet malt and caramel. Clean finishing malt bomb. Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2005
Dark copper, light brown head diminishing. Smells toffee, tangerines, coffee roast, subdued spiciness. Tasty gooey caramel malts bouyed by nice carbonation, clean, spicy finish. Clean, crisp, malty. Very drinkable. Too sweet to be a dunkel, though. Malt profile more like a Vienna. Very nice.

Tap/ Bottle: Malty sweet aroma leads to much of the same in the flavor. Not as big in the flavor dept as I thought it would be which lead to me being a little let down. SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Hazy light brown body with a diminishing, smooth, off white head.
Aroma is malt but lacks somewhat in intensity.
The flavor is crisp with just enough malty balance to make this a decent brew. Still not at the top of the list of Dunkels however. surfmurf (85) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2004
At last a beer that smells, looks and finally tastes like a beer should! Perhaps my quest is over and I’ve found a new favorite. This stuff was exquisite. Overall a balance of perfectly blended grains that hit the spot and made me want another just to savor again. Eyedrinkale (3214) - Astoria, New York, USA - OCT 12, 2004
Bottle. Murky brown with slight red on the edges.Head starts off medium but quickly turns to just a few scattered bubbles, not pretty. Aroma is malt syrup with a mellow fruittiness. Taste is roasted malts in a sticky sweet malt juice. Is Victory slacking lately or what? If I wasn’t so thirsty, I woulda poured it where it belongs. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Nice deep red colorm litle layer of a head, soft carbonation. Laces on glass. Nice light malt nose, also caramel. Nice light malty taste, thick and medium lasting.
