12 oz can procured from my son in law.
My daughter bought these for him and told me she loves the names that Karbach chooses for its brews. Poured into a Saint Arnold taster glass. Giant creamy tan-colored head about 4" tall that dissipates rapidly to about 1 finger, leaving a very nice lacing in the glass. Very dark, black-dark red color. Very clear. Color of the can is very close to the color of the beer. Smells less than it tastes. Chocolate and very roasted malt notes. Very nice soft mouthfeel. Tastes more sophisticated than it smells. Just enough bitterness to balance out the sweetness. Very well blended flavors that are nicely balanced with some faint hops in the background. The hops come out in the aftertaste. I must admit I tend to discriminate against cans because in the past I could taste metal and hate that. I do not taste any metal in this beer even thought its canned. Afterglass reveals the hops. A very nice colder-weather seasonal.

Pretty decent sized light brown to tan colored head slowly settles leaving a bit of lacing clinging to the edges as it recedes above a deep reddish amber colored beer.
Well roasted caramel malt aroma bordering on warmed dark chocolates.
Smooth dark roasted malts taste with a light Hershey's dark milk chocolate edge to it.
Dryish aftertaste with a bit of the dark malts tastes hanging around with this smooth and creamy medium bodied drink.
Smooth and tasty, pretty pleased with buying this stuff, just wish I had bought more.

12 oz can pours a dark brown color with a creamy tan head. Ok retention and great swiss-cheese lace. Pretty good looking brew
Nose is roasty with an astringent malt backdrop. Not the typical smooth choco/toasty malt I am used to in a Dunkel.
Hmmmm, mild chocolate and bigger roast. The malts just dont really smooth out the way a good Dunkel does. Pretty much a letdown for Karbach after many a good canned seasonal....and this coming from a huge Dunkel fan. Mouthfeel is actually a high point despite the roast. Carbonation is fine-bubbled. Its not horrible, but with some of the recent successes from Karbach and my love for the Dunkel style, I was hoping for something special.
