I've been rating beers with my own list for a few years and this is the best beer I've ever tasted. Wonderful color and flavor. Far from hoppy- I don't like hoppy beers.

Had at Metzger'z in Ann Arbor. Comes in a big glass mug with the right amount of head. Color is a perfect dark brown and tastes like it should. If you order a German dunkel this is what you are expecting. Got me pretty tired after drinking.

Rich mahogany color, but very thin head. Chocolate aromas. Biscuit and chocolate notes, but fairly light. Honestly, tastes exactly like Negra Modelo, which makes sense since it’s the same style, and was 1st brewed by Austrian immigrants to Mexico...and Negra Modelo isn’t bad, but I’d rather pay Negra Modelo prices.

Velety smooth, malty, drinkability. Definitely one of my new favs; it's hard to imagine it gets any better than this.

Never thought I would rate a big Brewery beer in this high I usually only give ratings like this to local breweries this is an amazing beer and I paid 12 bucks for a 12 pack of bottles I'm all about smaller breweries local breweries and the very professional ones but I have to give credit where credit is due and this is amazing and it's also brewed under the German Purity law well done Cheers

Had on tap, fresh keg. Poured a clear medium brown with ruby hues. Half inch head that settled to a ring quickly and left ample lacing. Smell was rather mild with roasted malts and some yeast. Taste was rather bland with malt as the predominate flavor, additional floral notes, yeast, nuts and corn. Light bodied, well carbonated, watery mouth feel.

Poured from 330ml bottle into glass. Best by date on label is '03.AUG.18 07A30'. Label ABV of 4.8%.
Ruby brown colored body, clear. Off white head settles to cap and scattered islands. Some spots of lacing.
Aroma is dark roasted malt with whiff of cocoa.
Rich roasted malt taste, with fruity hops and cocoa. Dry flavor profile.
Thin to medium mouth feel. Not much carbonation. Very little bitterness. Short taste profile.
Smooth and rich as to beer style. Not a smoked beer, but in the same dark, rich vein. Complex for a lager.
