2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Hazy, amber coloured, quickly diminishing off-white head; dark malt, caramalt, nuts and some fruits in the aroma; moderate bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; traces of cacao in the bitter-malty finish. Decent, but a bit unharmonic. Is it a Dunkel or a Kellerbier....

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, reddish brown colour with a mid-sized beige foamy head. Sweet and slightly yeasty roast-malty, melanoidinic and a bit Bock-like aroma with caramel. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with an almost crispy carbonation. Roast-malty, minimal yeasty taste with hints of dark bread, caramel and light herbal accents; dry (it´s “hochvergoren”) and moderately roasted, malt-accented finish with a light burnt and hoppy bitterness. A pleasant "zwickl´ed" Dunkel (23.05.08).

Bottle, at Tapas Bar in Bamberg July 2005. Deep chestnut, good off white head and good condition. Spicy, peppery hop and earthy roastiness in the nose, gentle yeasty sweetness tempered by a bitter roasted edge in the mouth and a gentle bittersweet finish with yeast and hop to the fore.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-brown, accajou beer, cloudy, with very creamy, persistent head. Malty, sweet nose, but dark malts - getting faint bread and sugar syrup notes. Dry liquorice, bitter finish. Very strange combination, virtually no rest sweetness. Quite yeasty. Rather well-bodied. It’s neither a Dunkel, neither a typical Kellerbier. Ends quite dry after all the sweetness. Dry grainy. What IS this? Pretty unique.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Slight sweet malt aroma with metallic hints. Dark brown color with decent head. Sweet malt blended with mild hops flavor. Nice body. Much more hops than most beers of this style.
