3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark reddy brown, carbonation makes it look a little coca-cola-like. Rich roasty toasty aroma, some marmite. Soft carbonation, smooth palate, quite succulent. Slightly sweet roasty toasty body, big malt bomb, but nicely dry, not sticky. Excellent hops in the finish, some burntness lives on too. Excellent dunkel.

Bottled (Beerangel, 06/2009).
Clear darl ruby color, steady creamy beige head, lace. Smokey dark and wet wood and caramel in the nose. Quite good body, soft malty. Chocolaty, caramelly, a bit toasted flavor with elements of licorice. This is a dunkel with character, very unusual German dark lager.

The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Nice head. Starts strong and malty, not too roasted and dry, notes of plum. Finish a bit drier, very drinkable. Not bad!

0.5 l bottle, thanks Jukkabro! Reddish brown color. Malty, nutty and slightly chocolatey aroma. Nutty flavor with dark bread, chocolate, licorice and hints of dark fruits. Nice dunkel, although much better on draught at Munich.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle straight from Munich courtesy of my mother-in-law in Paulaner half litre. Dark amber with lasting head and lace. Toasted caramel grassy wood aroma. Toasted caramel wood nuts and mild smoke flavor with very mild finishing bitterness. Medium body with a little fizzy sharpness. Pretty good, nicely toasted, but lacks richness and fullness.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (from beerangel.de). Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, some wood, mild roasted notes as well as some slight wooden sourness too. Elements are there but really makes a bad combination imho. Flavour is quite much the same with big time licorice coming through. Quite refreshing still. Nice palate, a bit sticky and quite dry, but yet biting carbonation and quite crisp and fresh.
