2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle at Ft Wayne locals tasting courtesy of thedm and hotstuff - Pours clear amber with a thin light tan head. It has a mild lightly roasted malt aroma. The flavor is really sweet. It tastes like a sort of caramel corn syrup mash and is not impressive in the least. It’s light to medium bodied with maybe a touch of hops in the finish. The ratings are considerably higher than I expected. Maybe it lost something crossing the big pond?

Aroma and flavour roasted and a bit coffee. Not too much though, which is nice. Quite nice Czech Dunkel. Above the average I would say.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry toffee finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle courtesy of and shared with ogivlado (thanks!)
Poured a darker red-brown body with a medium sized off white head. Odd nose... malty, vinuous with notes of kiwi... hm. The taste is quite nice, with a fine roasty maltiness with notes of caramel, only lightly sweet (unlike many Czech dunkels). Woody and bitterish, with only little hop taste. I like it.
