I got this after trying the verum and really liking it. Dark lagers are kind of special in a way. They're not especially common here. It poured dark but not as dark as a stout. Typically roasted flavor with a semi-sweet flavor of carmelized sugars. Kind of a simple flavor without too much depth typical of a lager. It could have much more flavor the verum does, but I think the roasted flavor actually contributes to this. Kind of a dull thin mouthfeel. Not especially drinkable for a lager. Not a bad beer, but I was much more impressed with the Vahrshteiner verum so I'll probably get that instead next time. In comparison with another beer of the same style however, it is lightyears ahead of Modelo Negro. Even after drinking Modelo with wisky it didn't taste as good as the Warsteiner. If by chance you're a modelo fan try this instead you might like it better.

11.2oz bottle poured into a pils glass. The brew looks like a watered down molasses. Brown with ruby clarity through the body. A khaki head a finger strong fades to a thin film with patchy lace.
Aroma of chocolate and caramel/toffee with some mineral, citrus and sulfur backing. Some earthen, almost dusty aspect comes out as it warms up.
Taste is quite sweet with toffee, caramel, molasses, earth and a bit of dusty aspect like the aroma suggested. Raisins before getting a little herbal and bitter.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. A unique offering that seemed like their normal pils but with some toffee added.
