4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Bottled. A clear red/brown beer with a medium sized and persistent beige head. the aroma is malty, nutty and caramellish with toasted notes and some herbal hops. The flavour is quite powerful and very malty. There are the usual notes of nut, caramel and toasted bread, perfectly balanced by a more than decent herbal hoppiness in the final. medium body, but fuller than I first remebered, average to lively carbonation, very little acidity, quite long aftertaste. The bitterness is higher than your average dunkel. Probably the best beer I have tried in this style together with the Ayinger’s one. An excellent beer, has all you can ask in a dunkel.

Brick red, verging on brown. Frothy head. Very appetizing to look at. Roasty, sweet aroma. Milk chocolate sweetness. Flavor passed too quickly. All that was left to do was drink more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Reddish brown colour, with a bronze glow. Thin beige head. Bready malt and chocolate on the nose, with a touch of sour fruit. The flavour is much the same as the aroma, although with less chocolate in evidence. Dabs of liquorice and nice bitter bite on the finish. Quite light bodied, with a distinct prickle in the mouth and a tart, acidic edge. Perhaps a touch carbonic. A rather good, and refreshing, dunkel.
