2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap ( 0.5 l ) at the brewpub in Aufseß... Dark golden color, short head. Color is more like a Zwickl, not like a dark beer... Almost no sweet malt aroma. More Helles or Zwickl flavor than dark beer taste... Unspecial ending...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sand Passage, pours a clear red-amber or mahogany with a clinging off-white head and aromas of dusty malt, cocoa and a faint hint of green apple. Chocolatey on the palate, but also nutty and dryish with a lightly winey character. Seems halfway between a typical Altfrankish Braunbier and a Munich Dunkel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A dark amber to light-copper colored beer which looks excellent in the glass. Has a syrupy and almost smokey burnt caramel/butterscotch undertone, which strongly dominates every other characteristic of the beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flip-top half-litre bottle BBD 4th July 2013: poured into two ’Hannan Alt’ tumblers at home on 7th June 2013.
Good looking beer: toffee apple red/brown with an off-white head that tried to hang around.
Semi-sweet maltiness in the aroma and taste: caramel and toffee notes coming through from the very start of the tasting. I like the sweeter brews so this was fine by me.
Easy to drink and fairly well balanced: mini bitterness towards the end, but still one of the sweetest Dunkels I’ve had so far.
