3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Roasty malty and bready aroma with notes of caramel and a touch of molasses. Sweet flavour with a tinge of bitterness, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Solid roasty malty and slightly molassy taste, drying out towards the roasty bitter finish with mildly hoppy notes. Like a diluted dark Bock. Good. 30.IX.10

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours clear dark brown with a three finger foamy tan head. Aromas of brown roast malt with some significant grassy hop. Medium body with fairly strong carbonation. Flavor is like the brown ale malts, but the grassy hop bitter makes it wholly unlike a brown ale. This is pretty good stuff. Flavor may be a bit light for a dunkel, but ??? Anyway it drinks pretty well.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rating #345, brought by my friend Mads to our dunkel-tasting
This was one of the better beers in the tasting. Appearance is dark brown, almost black, with an ok head. Aroma is rather vague, but has some sweet chocolate. Flavor is better than the aroma indicated, with a lot af sweet chocolate, bread, coffee and maybe some soapy notes. Body is medium and the beer is easily creamy.
