look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
