3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (72/09 bb 30.9.2010) courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who got it in a trade with Allen (thanks!)
Poured a murky, slightly lighter than usual brown body with a big off white-rocky head that went away relatively fast. Weak nose, just some very weak sweet and roasty maltiness. The taste, however is very nice, light roastiness with some sweetish, slightly toffee-like taste. The mothfeel is more bubbly than soft (if this makes any sense) but it’s still a really nice dunkel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Bov. It pours a ruby brown beer with a creamy, nicely remaining beige head. Burnt caramel, coffee, vanilla, strawberry, plum, liquorice allsorts and mocha in the nose. Sweet taste with a lot of caramel showing up. Extremely smooth. Creamy palate. Low bitterness. Fruity. Balanced finish which is reminiscent of burnt caramel and mocha. My kind of Dunkel. A deeply pleasant example. Great stuff. Thanks a lot Bov!
