Tap at the pub, dark brown pour with a beige head, sweet roast malt taste with notes of toffee and fruit, light sour/bitter finish but does not linger, not bad but I liked the Märzen a little bit better.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep brown with a small, tan lacy, lasting head. Smells of toasted malt, toffee, bitter, roasted malt, wood, and dark malt. Tastes of roast at first with nice toffee sweet centre and a liquorish. Dry, dark fruit finish. Some lingering toffee and roast. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Nice with the meal and decently balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 05/04/14. Pours a dark reddish brown with a good, beige head. Aroma is light smoked bacon, some roastiness, some dark maltiness. Taste is darkly malty, light roast and light smoked bacon again. Some herbal flavor on the finish. Fairly light and decent carbonation. A well-made dunkel with the smoked bacon being a nice touch.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. Aroma is a bit mild, I get more caramel, less roasted. Clear dark amber-brown colour. Stable head. Taste goes in the same direction as aroma, with just a hint of coffee. Mostly sweet, caramelly. Decent, but the plain sweetness bores me very quickly. Moderate duration of finish, where a bit more of the roast shows itself.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at 7 Stern in Vienna .... this was OK. I love dunkels but found this to be a little dry in tongue feel and a little more malty/tobacco’ish than I prefer myself .. not bad but I probably would not buy again

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at 7 Stern. It pours deep brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is diacetyl, buttered toast, toffee, roasted malt and wood. The taste is roasted malt, wood, leather, touch of dark fruit, some butter, smoke, charcoal and hint of toffee with a long, dry finish. Medium body and moderate, prickly carbonation. Pretty sub-standard and yet more diacetyl....

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
.5L mug at Siebensternbräu in Vienna. This "unfiltered and 100% natural" beer is a very dark, reddish brown with mahogany highlights. Durable tan head leaves very good, sticky lacing on the glass.
Aroma: malt + sweet vanilla + light smoke
M: full body with medium-light carbonation. Smooth
T: Not sweet, except immediately upon hitting the tongue. Vanilla in the finish. Surprisingly little sweetness while hops are subtle and only clearly present in the aftertaste.
O: excellent dunkle, even by Bavarian standards.
