Poured from a 16.9 oz. bottle into a 16 0z. glass goblet.
Pours a clear, deep brown with a yellowish-tan head that dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing. Lots of things going on in the aroma, especially as it warms a bit. Bready Munich malt, chocolate, molasses, nutty and a strong sweet smell. Taste: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is not a Munich Dunkel style. There’s some rye malt character there with a weaker hop profile, much like a Euro Dark Lager. Whether it fits the Munich Dunkel taste profile exactly or not, this is a great beer, in my opinion! Grainy, bready flavors with hints of dark chocolate, brown sugar and ripe fruity flavors. Medium bodied with a light-to-medium carbonation level, making it silky smooth. No alcohol warmth detected. Paired very nicely with the warm, buttered pumpernickel I had with it. Overall, this was a great beer for a great price! I paid $2.39 for a single 16.9 oz. bottle. I will definitely grab this one again.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a glass.

A: A nice dark brown color with a thick head, very nice appearance

S: Predominantly roasted malt, maybe a hint a caramel, standard dunkel smell

T: A nice rich, but not overpowering taste. Not as smooth as I would have hoped though.

M: Set well on the tongue

O: Just an average dunkel beer, but for a price of just over $2, I would say it met my expectations, though I won't be rushing out to get it again as there are a lot of other dunkel beers I would rather have and pay more for.

I got a single 1pt., 9oz bottle from Everett’s in South Beloit, IL for $2.29 in October 2012.

Pours a very dark brown with a slight off-white head. There is a mild scent of hops and malts but nothing too strong. The taste is ever so slightly heavy in taste but not by much. There is a decent combination of hops, malts, and yeast to make a dark beer that drinks fairly easy. Although it drinks well, it really could use some work in flavor department as the taste is kind of bland. For a small city, this was a rather interesting find.

16.9 oz. brown bottle with clear freshness dating. Poured into a standard shaker pint, the beer is brown with amber highlights. It has a thick and sticky tan head.

The beer has an aroma of raisins, roasted malts and something sweet like brown sugar.

The taste is very similar to the smell. It is sweet with some dark fruit, toasted malts and brown sugar. It almost reminds of toffee or a slow poke sucker. I think it is a trifle too sweet to session, but it hit the spot after working outside and a 60 degree day.

The mouth is smooth with the carbonation really hitting at the end of the sip (if that makes sense).

I would love to try this on tap or closer to the source.
