3.35/5  rDev -0.9%

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Nice, dark, with a black cherry glow. Nice ring lacing.

S: Not much to speak of, fairly mild caramel, coffee?

T: Smooth, a little like black licorice, some toffee. It's a little bitter, but at the same time it comes off as watery on the palette.

M: Thin, not much body.

D: It's not really my style, but it's fine, I don't think it's necessarily something that's worth it's price, when a yeungling black and tan is cheaper, and about the same.

Looked very much like a porter,mine did have some head to it but faded quickly.Had some chocolatyaromas and flavors to it,was pretty thin compared to what I thought it to be.Very easy to drink for the color,can drink many of these without filling up.

Appearance - This is a dark brown in color with a decent head.

Smell - The malts are a bit grainy but otherwise exactly on for the style, a rare accomplishment for an American effort at the MDL. There's also that rich unsweetened molasses aroma that you find in good German samples.

Taste - The one doesn't fall into sweetness like some other disappointments that I've had. The malt retains its heavy structure from the nose keeping the malt pronounced.

Mouthfeel - This is on the heavy side of light-bodied with some mild but thankfully persistent bitterness and just enough carbonation.

Drinkability - This is an excellent-drinking Munich. Of the few American efforts I've had of the dunkles lager I think only Penn's tops this one. Nicely done.

I'm not really sure what style this is. I've read schwarzbier and this says munich dunkel, so, a little hard to score.

Overall, it's a fairly pleasant beer with caramel, cocoa powder, mocha, hazelnut, marshmallow notes, and chocolate tea cookie. A lot of sweet malt flavors without being too sweet.

3.88/5  rDev +14.8%

Presentation: It was poured from a 12oz brown bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: The pour produces a light tan head of good size that slowly fades to much thinner covering. Lacing is slick and spotty. Underneath the head is a very dark amber liquid with reddish highlights and decent clarity.

Smell: Its aroma is malty and sweet, candy like and a little roasted. Hops add a touch of floral and light citrus perfume like notes.

Taste/Mouth: The flavor is sweet, malty, and bready with a light touch of caramel and a very slight hint of coffee like bitterness. There are also some nice mild roasted notes and well balanced hop flavor. The finish has more roasted notes and hop bitterness fading off the tongue. The texture is slightly thin and very drinkable with aggressive carbonation that has a little bite.

Notes: It's a nice overall dark lager with a good balance of hops and malt. It reminded me of a light bodied, thinner Oktoberfest beer.

3.5/5  rDev +3.6%

Appearance: light chocolate brown, clear, small head, medium carbonation

Smell:toasted malt, caramel, light cream, chocolate

Taste: caramel, malt, small nutty taste...There is another taste in there--almost frankincense like similar to Abita's restoration pale ale

Mouthfeel: medium thin body, can taste medium high carbonation, semi-sweet

Drinkability: I am not a seasonal drinker, but this beer screamed autumn to me. I sort of see it like a fizzier slightly less strong version of Leinenkugel's fireside nut brown. A good beer, not great, that I could session--if the time was right.

The beer pours a hazy chocolate-brown color with a tan colored head. The aroma is tea, earthy hops and toffee. The flavor is toffee, chocolate, earthy hops and dirt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, but nothing too terribly exciting.

Poured a very dark brown with a tannish-colored head that leaves a patchy lacing on the glass. Aromas consist of some dark chocolate, nuts, and dark fruit. Flavor was rather strange, with a smoky, chocolaty, almost....spoiled fruit-type flavor. There is a solid hop backbone to this beer and the bittering flavor at the end lends testament to this. Mouthfeel was above average, with a high-medium body and smoothness. I was surprised at how quickly I drank this one. I'm still not sure what I think about this beer. I was intrigued by it due to fellow BA PhantomVoDoo (note the intentional mis-spelling of the name...), but I'll need to wait for a few weeks and try this again and see if my opinion has changed.

Poured from a bottle into a chilled mug.

Appearance - Pours a nice amber cherry wood color. Slight head unless poured aggressively.

Smell - Nice sweet malty smell with hints of grapes. Slight hoppy coffee smell in the back.

Taste - Strong sweet malty taste at first then gives way to a slight toffee. Nice aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Decent carbonation. Slightly dry.

Drinkability - Decent. Mildly smooth for this type of lager. Strong enough to notice but still smooth enough to sip a few at a time.

Overall an interesting brew. Probably won't be a regular in my 'fridge but I'm sure I'll be in the mood for it occasionally.

Good stuff. Pours dark brown with red highlights and a short off-white head. Subtle malty aroma, kind of roasty. Sweet, hoppy lager with plenty of malt. Nice finish. Always had this with bbq chicken while in Virginia. Haven't tried it since moving. May have been the atmosphere, but I remember this as being a nice, easy beer.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours a dark brown with no head at all. Nose is a bit smokey and a bit boozy but not too much.

Taste is a bit odd, got some smokiness and light boozy, it also has that home brew wheaty twang too it. Not super drinkable because of this.

Nice dark ruby color that had moderate, long-lasting head with nice lacing. The smell was big hops, which smelled nice, but overpowered the malt. The flavor was fairly simple---roasted/coffee like. The malt was almost non-existent and the hops were not as prominent as they were in the aroma, but still there. So, the taste was good, but the mouthfeel was a bit thin, yet the flavor lingered. A not outstanding beer, but a welcome change from the macros and very drinkable due to the lightness and good flavor.

Transcribed from notes taken while on vacation last week...

Pours out as black as coal... just the way I like it! Developed a small head, but had excellent retention. Settles to a thin collar with good lacing down the glass. The smell could only be described as odd...and somewhat unpleasant at that. My brother-in-law described it as an "old foot," and I find it hard to argue with that assessment. Taste is a nice balance of sweet malts and bittering hops. Some nutty flavors also seem to linger underneath the complexity of it all. Mouthfeel was very thin considering how dark and malty this offering is. Overall it is a solid beer that is very drinkable (if you don't smell it too much). However, it does fall just slightly below my expectations. Tasty, but definitely not on my "A" list of beers.

Harldy any head on the pour. Smell is fantastic, lots of toffee and caramel. Taste is sweeter than expected. Also it has an odd boozy taste which is strange for the alcohol percentage. Taste is finished off by a nice caramel note that is not too overwhelming.

Overall I enjoyeed this beer, but the sweet boozy flavor does not serve it well.

Poured from a 12oz (twistoff?) bottle into a pilsener glass. A darker red-orange; considerably lighter than other schwarzbiers I've seen, with a fluffy off-white head that dissipated over time leaving some slimy lacing. Smell is toasted malts, almost cracker-like. I'm no food scientist, but I'd guess that's a lot of the Maillard reaction I'm smelling. Taste followed the nose; sweet and toasted malts, rounding off with that smooth, crisp finish of a schwarzbier. Overall I was apprehensive at how different it looked for its style, but it satisfied just fine.

A dark appearance, not quite black, but close enough to call black, didn't see anything in terms of head or lacing, carbonation seems under a desired level. Aroma was licorice.

Taste, thinner than it looks. Light on palate, yet fuller taste profile, resonates on the tongue without beating it up. Has a very thin porter taste to it. Would never guess it was a lager. A little bit of sweetness with it. Cool artwork, but the impression the beer leaves makes me think this is more of a gimmick or touristy thing.
