3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Mindestns haltbar bis: 16.10.11.
It pours a pretty standard dunkel color. the head dissipates a bit quickly with small spots of lacing.
The smell is pretty good: light hops, doughy bread, brown sugar, cocoa, dark fruit, and a hint of roastiness.
The flavor is perhaps sweeter than most. It almost has the taste of spices. It has a rich caramel flavor along with some earthiness from the hops.
I’m not as in tune to the sweeter dunkles but this one is pretty good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle, as Bräu im Moos Export Dunkel, courtesy of and shared with ogivlado who brought it from Germany (thanks!)
Poured an amber-red-brown clear body with a thick slightly off white head that took its time to go away. The nose is sweetish, caramel and fig jam. The taste is nice, sweetish again and malty, some fruitiness, plums? Very weak roasty notes, vague herbal bitterness (there almost isn’t any. Drinkable and refreshing simple dunkel.
