3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Gasthof Brennerei Stuben in Wilhelmsdorf, Aischgründer Dunkel has a rich, dark amber appearance and an aroma with light caramel overtones. The head retention is fair. Its taste is a bit sweet and carmel, with a sweet finish, too: a nice, drinkable beer.
---Cheers until next time!

swing-top bottle, best by December 2012. dark cola brown body with a small off-white head. strongly metallic nose with solvent and paint-like yeast notes in addition to the requisite brown malt and light cola scents expected in dunkel. husky toasted malt flavor with mild metal and yeast. simple flavor, sorta watery all around, and a little too oxidized.
