Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas hat das Bier eine schöne tiefbraune Farbe. Der Geruch ist malzig süßlich. Der Antrunk ist angenehm röstig, im Abgang wird’s leicht süß. Der Mittelteil wird wesentlich röstiger und brotiger, die süße Note nimmt deutlich ab. Könnte insgesamt mehr Kohlensäure vertragen. Durchschnittliches Dunkles. Nix besonderes.

Bottled (thanks Timo A!). Deep nutbrown/amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel, nutty, some dark fruityness as well as some slight toasted notes. Flavour is rather similar, but has a rather thin palate.

Draught at the brauhaus
Amber color with chestnut shades; creamy head. The aroma has some light perfumy vanilla. Caramel flavor, little residual sweetness (just enough to smoother the body); quite strong bitterness. Easy.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh, as always, from Wine of Dreams, Warszawa. Pours clear even after rocky walk, train and tram travel. Incredible copper color; this is not your average brown dunkel. The head is great; ecru, pock-marked, lovely. The aroma is mostly dry earth and aromatic noble hops, subtle, but very nice. The flavor is caramel sweetness minimally, but quite hoppy - out of style hoppy, I think, but I love it. Love it. Great beer for the end of the long travel and workday. Wagner is way underrated - or maybe I am just getting them super fresh. Perhaps a bit thin-bodied. Sweetens up a little at the close. Best before Nov 2010...
