NEUZELLER KLOSTER-BRAU BATHBEER

Deep brown-hued, medium-bodied German dark lager with cocoa-smoked coffee-burnt entry and thick tobacco imprint settles for extremely parched plum tranquility. Soft ashen malt finish fits moderate template, knocking back tertiary powdered chocolate dryness effectively.…

SLEEMAN HONEY BROWN LAGER

Bland light-bodied bronze-hazed Euro-styled lager lacks tangible distinction. Thick round-bubbled head and expectant Sleeman creaminess exist alongside mild sugar water palate as grassy-hopped astringency lingers to honey-roasted finish. Light white-breaded toasting nearly escapes notice.…

(BAVIK) PETRUS OAK AGED DARK LAGER

Tart and fruity like many exceptional Belgian brews, but oak-dried cherry-raspberry dominance overrides any typecast dry white wine-like essence. Sullen grape-vined grain-malted sweetness recedes to tamped-down hop docility.…

KLASTER DARK LAGER

Proud Indian reddish sienna hue bestows lactose-aided lager with virtuous burnt caramel signature, malt whiskey contour, and sugary butterscotch-vanilla-chocolate sweetness.

NEUZELLER KLOSTER-BRAU BLACK ABBOT LAGER

Festive brown-bodied tan-headed dark lager retains emphatic roasted chocolate sweetness as infectious butterscotch creaminess, powdered cocoa suggestion, and tobacco leaf illusion deepen Scotch malt proclivity.

SLEEMAN ORIGINAL DARK AMBER LAGER

Red-tinted creamy-headed dark beer with 5.5% alcohol content, thin buttery malt texture, delicate hop bite, and sugared blandness. Unspecific golden ale fruiting or red ale toasting kicks in after few swallows, but lack of prolonged finish hurts resolve.…

BERGHOFF GENUINE DARK LAGER

Receding toasted oats border casual creaminess and musty earthiness as recessive raisin fluctuation dissolves under red fruited malt souring. Lack of hop assertion further hurts hazy golden Euro-styled lager.…

EFES DARK LAGER

Sharp hop roast embitters sugary maple malt splurge, bruised orange endurance, and red fruited esters murmuring through fascinating Vienna-styled ruby-hued clear-bottled lager. Copper ale-like subtleties (faint nut, dusky mocha, tinny finish) absorb soft water crisping, mildewed earthiness, and dank charcoal-tobacco illusions.…

KOTAYK LAGER

Musty sour yeast aroma, moderate hop bitterness, and dank cloy finish mark this light watery Armenian. Less bread-like than Rolling Rock but with a bitter Heineken-like aftertaste (minus the much needed malt pungency).…

OHOTA KREPKOYE (STRONG)

Abhorrent 8.2% alcohol-fueled clear straw lager with uneasy initial skunked aroma and offensive cloying nature settling to soapy corn liquor-induced diacetyl flow nastier than shoddy American malt liquors.…

SLEEMAN ORIGINAL DARK AMBER LAGER 50

Garnet amber mediocrity brings dry nutty dalliance to caramelized crystal-black malt roasting and orange-peach-grapefruit tang. Similar to IPA 46 minus the piney protrusion.…

BRASAL BOCK DARK LAGER

Delicious all-consuming coffee-hazelnut essence enamors nose, mouth, and gullet. Registered in U.S. as malt liquor due to feverish 7.8 % alcohol content, sweet Canadian bock coats the throat with uncommon maple-molasses richness.…
