Side by side with some other Penn stuff. Pours a dark amber brown color with small off white to light khaki head. Aroma is nice, with some sweet dark fruits, light toffee, chocolate notes. Flavor is a lightly spicy chocolate, clean finish, and medium sweetness. Medium bodied with low plus carbonation. A really nice brew that could pass as a winter warmer or a fall cookout beer. I'd have this again.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Received as part of a monthly beer club membership from my wonderful children. Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A good representation of the Munich Dunkel lager style. An underrated brewery producing good beers in generally undervalued styles. 4.25

A – Pours a clear reddish brown with a thin brown rocky head that dissipates quickly to nothing (-), almost zero lacing. 3.25

S – Malt, bread crusts. 4.25

T – Brown bread, faint toffee and molasses. 4

MF – Medium-bodied, semi-dry finish, thin, low carbonation. 4
