look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours with a khaki, slightly lumpy cap just over a finger thick, floating atop a dark, molasses-colored beer. Doesn't quite leave lacing, but rather, deposits small spots of foam on the glass.

S: Malt and ester. Grape, fig, toasted biscuit, with a slight pepper and hint of citrus. A pleasant, soft, fruity smell, accentuated by a slight grassiness.

T: Roasted malt, sweet and creamy. This is a delicious beer. It's not heavy, but it has a big, creamy, effecvescent mouthfeel, and a big body. The hops and carbonation mix for a smooth but crisp bitterness. The hops are earthy. Finishes dry, but sweet and nutty.

D: This is a very drinkable, very sessionable beer.

Overall, this is a great Munich dunkel, presenting a complex malt flavor.

Pours a medium to dark brown color with good clarity. Slight off white head forms and has good retention. Nutty aroma with hints of bread and cocoa. Just a whiff of herbal hops. The taste has more nutty and cocoa flavor with a slight bitterness. Sweet and doughy, a bit of caramel. Medium bodied and well carbonated. Overall, this is an average American Dunkel Lager.

I haven't tried this hometown brew in a while, so thought I'd give it an unbiased review.

A- In a dim light it's more clear than I would have imagined being a dark beer. It doesn't appear to be think, or very filling...it appears 'natural' for a dark beer.

S- Strong roasted smell, it's savoring, a bit sweet, very smooth roasted aroma, blends in with the beer. Expecting, and confident, a very proud smell.

T- Good roasted barley taste. Nothing overwhelming, but smooth.

M- Very light tasting dark beer, fills the mouth well, nothing overwhelming, but a taste that can sit well for a long period of time.

Overall- It doesn't try to hard. Doesn't want to impress in that sense, it does impress. It doesn't try to hard for something it's not. I wouldn't say it's a simple man's beer, but it's a dark beer for people that usually don't enjoy dark beers.

Bottle from Cafe Hollander in Tosa Village, WI.

The beer has a cola body with hints of ruby. A quarter inch of beige head quickly fades. The aroma offers bittersweet chocolates, light coffee, brown bread, malt. Ok flavor. Mild sweetness with moderate carbonation. Middle of the road.
