<i>Draught at the brewpub. </i> Nut brown, creamy head. Roasty buttery malt aroma. Fairly sweet with gentrly rounded mouthfeel. Carefully roasty buttery malt passes by edgeless and pleasant. Traditional Austrian low bitterness opens up for some molasses in the finish.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy dark red brown colour. The flavour is OK roasted, woody bitterness (if that makes any sense). Gets a bit sour towards the finish, cannot tell if it is an infection or the ’wood’.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ 1516 Brewing Company, Vienna.
Pours dark amber with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet rye bread and subdued caramel. Fine, light mouthfeel. The flavour is much less sweet than the aroma, lightly roasted with a fine, clear hops character. Some rye bread. Ends off with sweet caramel and good hoppiness. Nice one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Toasted malts and chestnuts ride a toffee wave until a pleasant hop spiciness lathers the last half of this interesting Dunkel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the clear russet.
-The end result is very drinkable and different from other Vienna Dunkels.
-A little diacetyl is perceived in the nose.
-This is well balanced throughout.
On tap at the brewpub.
