Too bad this has been retired. A good brew for the holidays.

This has a nice dark taste throughout. The fruit juices with which it is said to be brewed are faint, and perhaps add some subtlety to the proceedings. This brings to mind memories of other dark beers from the summer of 2008, when we were better able to test thousands of beers and pretend to write intelligently about them. 2017/02/27

From notes taken 06/13/17:

Pinkish brown on the pour, but a darker brown with wine-red hues in the glass. Mostly clear. Capped with a fine, even, uniform, two-finger foamy head, light mocha in color. Grains, toffee, toast, faint dark fruit and anise, fairly leafy to earthy hops on nose. A palate of roast, toffee, nuts, and lingering tartness that is almost more metallic than dark fruity. Finish is akin to a dry red wine, in both flavor and feel, apart from carbonation. Medium-bodied, smooth, full of creamy suds with a light prickle on the edge.

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.

L- Pours like a rootbeer with a thin head. Plenty of carbonation.
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.
