Shared tonight by Dan, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a solid dark brown color with a smallish off white head that quickly dissipates to a cap. Smells of caramel and a hint of chocolate against a bready and pilsner malt base. Little to no hop aroma. The flavor is chocolate and caramel malts with a hint of bready pilsner malt. Little to no hop flavor or bitterness. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation and a slick smooth mouthfeel. Decent dunkel, easy to drink, but really nothing special.

Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a mahogany color with some quite nice red highlights. The off-white head formed upon pouring was quite large and had a moderate level of retention. The fading head in the end gave way to a medium amount of lacing.

Smell – The aromas were sweet and fruity. They were heaviest of a sweet cherry and apple smell, but also contained a light roasted bready and a light hop smell.

Taste – The taste starts out of a bready, cherry and a lighter roasted flavor. The roasted flavors begin growing stronger after the initial taste. These mix with some flavor of a toast flavor and more cherry as the taste advances further. In the end, these flavors, when mixed with the a lighter earthy hop taste, leave a interesting bitter taste on the tongue (I can’t decide if I like it or not).

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is just a tad above average in terms of creaminess and thickness for a brew of only 4.8%. It also has just a slightly lower than level carbonation. These two qualities are quite nice for the roasted flavors of the brew and help accentuate the fruit and roasted flavors.

Overall – A pretty good brew with some nice fruit and roasted flavors. While tasty it maintains a fairly high level of drinkability. Not too shabby.

A - brand x cola brown. High clarity. Airy fluffly dark beige head. Slight lacing.

S - burnt caramel. Molassus and just a tiny hint of horse blanket.

T - initial flavors are sharp malty but dry. Aftertaste is sweet with a pinch of roasted malt.

M - a tad thin. But sugar rolls around in your mouth.

D - fine as a dunkel. Good whenever dark beer. Not special.
