4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a crystal clear, medium brown; the color of strong pekoe tea. Sweet smells of warm pumpernickel, waffles. Taste is toasty with definite notes of rye/pumpernickel. Sweet caramel and toffee on the swallow. Medium body. Smell of rye malt really picks up as it warms a bit. This is an awesome beer!
Definitely a euro-style dark lager and was not intended to be a Munich Dunkel. Style categories at this site are in serious need of correction/expansion.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice bready aroma and a lovely amber colour. Very fully bready/earthy flavour that makes you feel quite full after having a 500ml bottle. Aroma is like smelling a hunk of rye bread which I find pleasant. Overall a decent and filling beer that should be sampled by any fan of dark beer.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Dark brown colour with a small tan head. Malts in the aroma are strong, with caramel and some chocolatey sweetness. Caramel, malt flavours, it’s quite sweet, maybe even some liquorice flavouring in there. Not really my thing but was fairly nice nonetheless.
