Draught at Cetimeter III, Vienna
Malty sweet aroma. Nice creamy brown head, dark brown color. Taste is malty, light sweet, fresh. Notes of burnt malt, especially in the dry bitter aftertaste. Not bad, but not my cup of tea.

Tap. Good deep amber to slightly brown and pretty clear. Good lasting head although small. Aroma is sweet and malty from munich malts. No hops in the aroma but they come out slightly in the flavor it balance it out. Seems a slight bit fuller in body that many other dunkels despite its average abv. Good all around dunkel.

Dark amber colour. Good mix of fruit and malt in the aroma, very fresh taste for a Dunkel - I found a lot of apple in the flavour. Refreshing, if a bit thin.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, at Café Abseits in Bamberg. Deep chestnut red, thin white head and moderate condition. Sweet and malty aroma with traces of roast barley. Sweet and full in the mouth with plenty of malt and some low roast barley, almost bordering on a barley wine at times. Sweet lingering malt with some solid hop bitterness in the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half a year too old. Aroma full of malt. Colour is dark brown, head light brown. Flavor has the malt too, but the age of this beer has perhaps made the flavor a little odd.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2011 Roasted malts and light fieldberries are swung into an earthy hop bitterness, working nicely with the drying effect of the roastiness in the finish...Some tartness acccompanies the lean fruitiness, which isn’t necessary imho...
