This is good stuff - had it on tap on a binge and found it malty enough to catch my attention mid jag. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2002
At the Brick in DC. Tart, and sweet. Looks the part. Aroma kind of low, or not what I expected. DocLock (10706) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2004

Draft at the Grey Lodge in Philly. Good German style Dunkel. Nice smooth malt flavor. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - APR 6, 2005
Bottle. Thanks to BuckNaked for this! Lovely copper hue with a dense foamy tan head. Nose is malty with light nuttiness, caramel, and some grassy hops. Taste is a bit hoppy and grassy, light nutty notes come through here as well, more chewy caramel, and sweet malts. Very nice! Body is medium with a full carbonation feel to it. Finishes with more hoppiness, though more earthy this time, caramel, light honey, nuts, and dried dark fruit. Nice beer!

Poured nice caramel dark amber color with a genereous initial head that provided lacing for the rest of the beverage. Aroma was a bit bready and sweet. Flavor was mostly malty with bread topping the caramel flavors. Almost no hops dectected. Mouthfeel was moderate and not overpowering. A bit too sweet for what I wanted, but enjoyable. luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007

Draft at the Haddon Township location.
Pours a dark golden orange/copper color with tangerine hues and a half finger white head that slowly settles into a thin ring. Sporadic streaks of lace left behind.
Slightly floral aroma with some earthy hops along with a sweet malt presence. Slightly toasty with hints of caramel and toffee.
Fuller bodied than expected with a nice crisp hop presence up front that provides a dry bitterness that lingers over the malt into a sweet and slightly dry finish. Some grassy pine notes countered by the sweetness with hints of caramel, toffee and biscuit. There’s some bready yeast adding fullness and light fruit notes in the finish. Well balanced and easy to drink. I was pleasantly surprised by this beer.
