This is a bit roastier of a dunkel. It is called "Brotzeitbier" for whatever reason.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 Bottle from Landbierparadies, Nurnberg. Deep chestnut colour with a big, frothy off-white head. Spicy cinnamon and caramel aroma. Light mouth feel with some chocolate malt and a decent dry finish. [3.1] Good. Second tasting - from the barrel at Zeitgeist @ The Jolly Gardeners, Lambeth 16/5/08. This had far more depth of aroma and flavour, with the spice more prominent, some earthy bitterness and a great dry finish. Excellent [3.7].

Draft at Franconian beer festival and there described as a dunkles vollbier. Dark red-brown, short-lived but nice tan head. Full-on malt aroma is very friendly. Quaffable, very nice mouthfeel. Good pumpernickel raisin bread flavors. Dry finish, almost too dry but makes it more moreish. Very nice.

0.5 l bottle. Mahagony color with creamy peige head. Sweetish, toffeish, toasty, nutty, caramelly and a bit buttery aroma. Toffeish, toasty and nutty flavor with some buttery notes. OK, would be better with less butter.

Bottle by 03.10.2012. Some nutty, earthy tones, maybe some chocolate/mocha in the otherwise weak, sweet nose. Dingy ruby-brown body with a rocky, creamy tan head. Taste is sweet, some caramel but much more toasty toffee and earth, nuts. faint fruit. Subtle scratchy bitterness, watery body, fun to take at a high speed.

(bottle) pours a clear dark ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy butterscotch and toffee, with some very light hints of toasted malts and gingerbread spice. flavour is the same, quite heavy on the butter, but somehow fittingly so, with some heavy grainy notes and a hint of chocolate. medium body and carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dunkelbraun, leicht trüb, wenig Schaum. Das Aroma dunkler, würziger Malze. Im Antrunk recht dünn, aber nicht wässrig. Im Geschmack kommt eine leckere Röstmalznote auf, die hopfenherb ausklingt. Ungewöhnlich und süffig zugleich.
