From a 650 ml bottle into a pokal.

A-A normal pour produces a slim finger of tan head. Retention is less than a minute and there is no lacing. The beer is deep amber with brassy highlights and a few bubbles to be seen in there.

S-I smell some cocoa at first, along with sweet plum and other dark fruits, some grain, a bit of nutty flavor, and a lot of malty grain. Hops are pretty much absent, but there is just a hint of zesty, fruity citrus.

T-The taste is pretty similar to the smell. Lots of sweetness, plum fruit, nuttiness, malted grain, and a bit of milky cocoa powder. I detect a faint suggestion of hops on the back of my palate, but they come through as just a whiff of bitterness.

M-The feel is a bit wet and heavy. Carbonation is mild to average in volume and slightly chunky.

O-Strangely enough, it is spring and I am drinking malty dunkels. Weird. Anyway, this is a pretty good example of the style. It possesses decent complexity and nice malt flavors. There is a healthy dose of sweetness, but the beer never becomes cloying or syrupy, like I think some dunkels can be. The mouthfeel is a bit underwhelming, but not terrible. All in all, a nice beer.

22oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. Thanks to my brother-in-law for bringing me this back in September of 2012; it's been forgotten in my cellar since.

A: Clear garnet body under two fingers of chunky tan head that settles into a ring. Light lace. Quite attractive.

S: Sweet maltiness dominates, with caramel, walnut, prune, and grape standing out. Nice mix of grain, fruit, and sugar. Enjoyable.

T: Fruity up front, with lots of grape, cherry, and plum leading in to caramel and butterscotch sweetness midway through. A bit drier toward the finish, with some minerality and herbal hops lending at least a hint of balance to a generally quite sweet beer. Very good, but not quite as well integrated as the aroma.

M: Smooth, creamy, well-carbonated medium body. Silky. Excellent.

O: This was an extremely tasty beer, period, and an especially impressive one for being close to two years old and a style not typically thought suitable for aging. Looking forward to trying more from this brewery; good American lagers are always a treat.

Cheers!

Re-reviewing since i am now more familiar with the style and the beer, having had it a million times since intiailly reviewing.

Pours caramel brown with a khaki head. Aroma is bready, hazelnuts, a touch of some chocolate. Great. Flavor crisp and clean with some bread, nuts, and a touch of earthiness. Just the faintest of hops hiding out in the backhand. A crisp, medium bodied mouthfeel with some activity. Overall, think this beer is great. One of my favorites from Grimm. Wish these guys would start offering their stuff in 6 packs (heck, I'd settle for 4 packs!).
