A- pours a chestnut brown, almost cola-like in color, foamy white tan head with decent retention and slightly stick lace.

S- cereal grains, roasted malt, faint whisper of hops

T-cereal grains follow the nose, slightly smoky roasted malt, a bit of skunk, finishes dry with a light hop bitter linger.

M- medium bodied, low carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, good balance.

O- not bad, but not something I'll look for again.

P:  Translucent body of dark brown color and ruby tints. Looks similar to soda and displays a small off white cap of fast fading head. 

S:  Robust roasted malts, toffee, bitter coffee, ground grains, pet shop wood bedding, the roast has almost a smoked aroma like stale half smoked cigars. 

T/M: Spicy carbonation strikes in a medium body with loads of roasted/burnt malt flavors. Mostly earthy and not much sweetness apparent. Hints of apple peels, metal, and bitter grapes. Taste seems muddled and lost under the overpowering burnt malts. 

O:  Not a huge fan of this one. Too much burnt presence and really no sweetness that stands out. I had to search too hard for the flavors that are expected. Spices are dull and the mix is just blurred. Maybe better on tap.

330 ml bottle into pilsener glass, best before 9/4/2012. Pours crystal clear reddish brown color with a nice 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, biscuit, nuttiness, toast, toffee, herbal, pepper, and earth. Pretty nice aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, chocolate, nuttiness, herbal, earth, and light pepper. Lingering notes of chocolate, caramel, toast, nuttiness, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Fairly dry and a touch thin on the finish. Fair amount of flavor and robustness; no cloying at all after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is good. No alcohol presence in the taste or finish. Overall this is a very solid dunkel. A touch thin and watery; but has some nice flavors, balance, and is extremely easy to drink. Enjoyable stuff.

Mahogany in color with excellent clarity. Poured with a short white foam that reduced to a soapy cap. Dark roasted and earthy, bitter, burnt malt aromas with hints of nuts and an underlying sweetness. On the fuller side of medium bodied with rich but slighty aggressive, fizzy, carbonation. Sweet roasted malt overtop burnt malt flavors from start to finish. Finishes crisp and semi-dry with a charred malt aftertaste.

Small bar poured head. It does leave plenty of spotty lace. Light shines through the solidly brown color. Clear.

Lots of toast, bordering on the burnt side.

Smooth, rich body with an above average level of carbonation. Spritzy. Darkened caramel is the predominant flavor. Good light hop in the swallow. Short aftertaste.
