3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pt .9 oz bottle: Aroma is light malt characteristic, a bit skunky, maybe Saaz hops, and just a light hint of some cake. Appearance is a clear light brown with a thick lightly tan head that linger around for quite a while. Taste has got somewhat of a strange taste to it. Hoppier that I thought it would be. Nutty, toffee, chocolate, and a nice malt backing. Palate has got a lightly carbonated clean feel to it, and the aftertaste has an ever so slight malt characteristic. Overall, Nice easy drinking. Wasn’t impressed with the aroma or appearance but pull through in the taste and palate. Cheers!

Athens, Ga. - Five Points Bottle Shop - 500 ml bottle. Very dark, ruby red to brown pour with a sift khaki colored head. Good nutty, sweet aroma with hints of chocolate. Stick to your ribs flavor with chocolate notes, caramel, hints of licorice and some brown baked bread. Back end of molasses. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. One of the better Dunkels I have had.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
16.9oz bottle. Deep opaque brown. Nutty, pungent brown sugar aroma. Lots of nutty burnt toffee, sweet and malty. There isnt even a trace of hops. Delicate mouthfeel, mild to minimal carbonation. Some light Malta pungency. Enjoyable enough, sort of your Czech Newcastle, with the accompanying quality deficiencies. Light and easy, OK.
