Bottle, thanks pivnizub.
Clear dark copper with a few floaties, impressive golden foam. Aromatic hop nose.
Citric and dry grassy entry, toasted bread. Dry hop mouthfeel, citric exhaling. Medium bozy fizzly mouthfeel. Nice!

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bügelverschlußflasche (purchased at the Brauereigasthof): Slightly hazy, amber - not copper - coloured, extremely stable, rocky beige head; grassy hoppy nose with a barnyardy background and a tinge of roasted malt; solid bitter-sweet flavour, soft F, light to medium bodied; lingering hoppy finish, balanced by sweet caramel and a tinge of yeast. Tastes far better than it smells........

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle, traded with pivnizub - díky! Hazy amber colour, large and creamy head. Full-bodied, very spicy with flavours of malt and intensive hoppy flavours. Shy hints of caramel and roasetd malt. Quite hoppy for a Dunkel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(swing top bottle) Hazy, amber colour with a huge and persistent light-beige foamy head. Light-sweet and slightly yeasty toast-malty aroma, slightly leafy with caramel, rounded up with spicy herbal hops. Light-bitter flavour, quite slim for an abv of 5.6% but it is never watery, crispy on the tongue. Toasty malty taste with caramel and balanced herbal hoppy flavours; dry, slightly toasted and moderately bitter finish with pleasant herbal and slightly spicy hoppy notes. Not too fat, but well rounded hoppy Dunkel (08.05.08).
