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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark brown with mostly diminishing light brown head. Burnt malt and caramel in the aroma. Flavor offers malt, hops and a profound cask wood note. Rather creamy on the palate. Average finish with some spiciness. Well made Dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, medium-sized fluffy off-white head, quickly diminishing; sweet, dark-malty nose with a tinge of molasses and some fruitiness; sweetish flavour with the faintest idea of bitterness, medium bodied; sweet-fruity and malty finish. A pleasant, well rounded brew, but nothing spectacular.......

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at GBBF ’06, 10 fl oz. Dark brown beer with thick head. Sweet fruity silky smooth beer with a heavy chocolated malt. Some burnt, roasted woody notes. Lacks a finish, being a little thin on the tongue at the end and retains a CO2 taste. A reasonable if unspectacular beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Germany. Translucent cherry-lacquered brown in color with a dense, spongy, 3/4" tan head riding on top for the duration of the beer. Aroma is delicately composed of french silk pie with chocolate graham crust, stark chocolate toffee, flame licked tree bark, and turtle fudge frozen custard. Flavor chimes in as lighter fairing. Cocoa dusted, crushed graham crackers. Silky chocolate trait folds back the fragile flavor layers. Liquefied chocolate wafers emit a vibe akin to a touch of room temp hot chocolate, cooled at its warmest state with an ice cube or two and dulled it down by doing so. Mildly roasted accents with circumstantial caramel drizzles. Errs on the light side, gently tossing over the tongue with a moment’s respite at more concrete semi-chocolate characteristics. A mild chocolate butterscotch generality gently weaves in and out as we go along. Light french silk custard comes out again the finish, coupling with a eased mocha torte airiness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark amber with fizzy light tanned pour. Sweet, rich aroma of juicy malt, dark caramel. A bit to dry up front with strong carbonation followed by woody-caramel finish. Aroma promised much more.
