12-oz. bottle poured into a 16-oz. mug, needed a strong pour to get a finger sized coffee milk colored head that dropped to a cap quickly with spotty lacing.
Dark walnut semi-opaque color, dark mohogany when held up to light.
Subtle smell of toasted grain, bready malt and spice.
Taste has added bitter and semi-sweet flavors at first, the roasted and un-roasted malts blend in the middle with the help of the lively carbonation. The roasted malt and carfully added hops finishes the taste, a very clean semi-dry finish.
The way the malts blend and compliment each other is excellent. Adding a light amount of hops keeps the bitterness moderate. Easy and smooth to drink. Alcohol is very well hidden.

On tap at Jacob’s Pickles, NYC.
Pours a mahogany color with a foamy mousse like head that’s the size of a large thumbnail. Good retention yields a creamy film and lacing.
The aromas shows off a rich malt base. Chocolate, caramel, toffee, toasted bread, biscuity and nutty.
There is a moderate sweetness in the taste. The malt is bready, toasty and biscuity with hints of chocolate and caramel. A subtle noble hops spice adds a modest bitterness. The hops also impart a slightly lemon like and citrus flavor.
Medium bodied, smooth, balanced, and with a crisp and clean finish. There is a modest earthy hops linger in aftertaste.
A really good interpretation of Dunkel Lager; clean yet flavorful with a full malt backbone. I’m becoming a fan of this brewery!

smells great, looks great, tastes great. If you like a dark lager, you will love this. Lots o flavor, nothing to overwhelm you, but really nice beer. If I had to pick only one beer for eternity, this might be it.

L — Pours a filtered, medium brown body with a 2.5-finger off-white head produced with aerated pour. Good retention and some lacing
S — Brown bread, hint of fruity yeast esters, caramel, molasses, cacao powder
T — Tastes like a liquified loaf of dense brown bread, with hints of dark chocolate and grassy hop
F — Crisp and easy drinking, as is par for the course with Von Trapp’s offerings. Definitely has more heft than usual for a lager, thanks to the roasted malts. Medium mouthfeel, medium+ carb.

12 oz bottle. Pours brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy, off-white head and lovely carbonation. Aroma is of bready malt and hint of herbal hops. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Taste of bready malt, toffee and herbal hops. Finish is long and almost dry. Delicious brew.

I enjoy the "Old World" styles and this one was pure enjoyment. It is what a beer should be to me.

Pours a clear medium brown with a half inch tan head that dissipated to a ring quickly and left blotchy lacing. Smells of roasted malts and a hint of hops. Tastes of roasted malts, bread, some chocolate and coffee notes, nuts and light hop presence. Light bodied, fairly highly carbonated, clean and crisp. Easy drinking beer.

Dark brown colored beer with a rapidly fading head. Taste is chocolate,nuts and a little bit of coffee bitterness. I think this is one beer that you should try at least one time.

Dark ruby brown body with a two finger beige head that dissipates to a wispy head with a solid, clingy ring around the glass. Moderate clingy lacing as well.
The aroma is roasted malts that present themselves as lightly roasted coffee. Also roasted, buttery nuts.
Roasted malts, dark bread, coffee and hints of Baker's chocolate in the taste. Herbal, floral hops towards the end.
Medium body with a crisp carbonation. Full flavored with a dry spicy finish.
