A-Bottle poured into a chalice, this beer is clear with a dark mahogany color. A weak tan head quickly disappears.
S-lightly roasted malt
T-dunkely. Decent toasted malt character with bready, toasty rye flavors. I get a hint of a cherry like flavor and tartness.
M-crisp finish. Moderate to high carbonation. Clean
O-A very drinkable dunkel. A bit light on the body.

S- Good malt and nut smell.
T- Hazelnut up front and very sweet.
F- Very thin.
O- Very light dunkle. Not near as good as foreign.

Poured from 12oz bottle into standard pint glass. No bottle or freshness date. Glass was slightly dirty, little bubble stick.

L: Brown with ruby light shining through, finger width tan head, poor retention. No lacing.

S: Mild caramel malt.

T: Again, caramel malt, some toffee.

F: Light-Medium bodied. Higher than average carbonation. Very slightly dry finish.

O: Not the best I've had from Leine's but not terrible.
