look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Minimal head, deep amber color, very clear

S - Malty barley smell. stronger than i expected, even for a dark lager

T - very roasty maltiness, pretty bitter... similar to a strong German beer

M - medium to high carbonation and thin

O - Not my favorite style, but it hit all the characteristics that you'd expect from a dark lager. I wouldn't buy again but I'd recommend to a friend who likes the style.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pilsner glass. Bottled on 20 November 2012.

A: A rich, transparent ruby-dark chestnut. Two fingers of lace form, then fade, leaving behind nice lacing. Gorgeous, though perhaps the glass as well.

S: Chocolate malt and floral, lagery yeast. Fresh cookies. Sweetish fruit.

T: Not as interesting as I'd hoped. Round, bland, and simple, but still quite pleasant. Plums, coffee, and rich malts which are both biscuity and chocolatey. The cookie comparison still holds.

M: Slightly watery, but moderately robust.

O: Not a bad lager, but also not particularly inspiring. My first of this particular style, and not a poor introduction. That said, this will probably be my only bottle.

Notes
IBU: 16.3
Malts: 2-Row Pale, Dingemans Munich, Dingemans Cara 45, Crisp Chocolate Malt, Weyermann Carafa III
