Bottle. Pours a Clear dark red-brown colour. Bitter mildly roasted aroma with hops. Sweet and mildly roasted bready flavour with caramel, hops and bits of spice. Quite sweet finish with a good bitterness. Too sweet for me but still a good Dunkel (bock).

Deep amber with a decent white head. Malt, a touch of hops, toffee, and spice. Medium body with a watery texture. Buttered biscuit in the flavor but still unappealing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear nubrown color with a fine though fast disappearing light brown head. Powerfull aroma of roasted nuts and loads of dusty hobs giving it a metallic scent in a nice way. Mouthfull is very bitter, again with a metallic tough, some toasted bread and suprisingly present alchohol. Lingering bitterness.

This dunkel pours a deep brown color from a 50cl swing top bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is caramel and sweet, touch of fruit. A medium bodied dunkel. The malts are fruity, caramel and semi sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy. There is a touch of tartness/sourness here as well. Nice balance. Good carbonation. There is a touch of spiciness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Floral hop aroma backed by some caramel. Dark mahogany color with a vigorous beige head. Thinnish body with near creamy carbonation. The flavor is caramel/toffee with floral notes and enough bitter to almost balance. There seems to be nutty spice with a light underlying sour note. For a lager this is really over the top on flavor and pizazz. The finish is not quite dry, but the floral bitter is right on. I say this is way underrated. Really tasty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beautiful reddish brown dunkel, has a fairly OK head. The aroma is malty and the mouth feeling is smooth. The flavour is sweet and malty with notes of candy sugar, fruit, honey and fermented apple. An unexpected bitterness turns up in the finish, and gives a nice citrussy counterweight to the sweet impression. This beer should be tasted when cold.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 Courtesy of Papsoe. Thanks, Henrik. The aroma is quite light, but features dry malt, grassy hops, a hint of cola and some very faint chocoff. The body is a rich wood colored brown, but fully transparent, giving it a polished hardwood look. The head is clingy, off-white, two fingers thick and quite lasting. Quite fruity on the first sip with hints of spiced applesauce, fresh green apples and lightly toasted dry malts. Very subtle and delicate, but strong in it’s lingering quality with stays with you long after you have swallowed. I get some light caramel notes as well along with a hint of wheat cereal and warm toasted grains. The head on successive pours is quite pretty with a frothed up capuccino appearance. I find this beer to be drastically better than it is rated. Maybe I got the golden ticket bottle, but this is an amazingly well done dunkel I’m drinking right now.
