3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Dodgy Deli, Oxford. Rather dark brown with ruby highlights, abundant sticky tan head. Dry charred toast, sawdust, just a bit of herbal hops underneath. Soft smooth roast flavor. Sort of a one note roast character, like french roast coffee, but it’s a nice note. Just a touch of clean bitterness, abrupt finish.

Dark clear look with a collapsing white head. Vague aroma of sweet malt, with some even weaker notes of roasted malts and something smoked. Seem overly carbonated. Flavor is refreshing with abit of bitter hops and some roasted notes.

My first dunkel - a nice pint. Light bodied, frothily carbonated lagerness with biscuity, roasted malt, and the soft Saaz bitterness on the palate - like a cross between a stout and a pilsener. Dry, refreshing, drinkable. Will have to try more dunkels to see how this compares but works for me.

Pint in the Bear & Billet, Chester. Was interested in this beer when I saw the tap. Coca cola appearance, not quite black but there abouts with an off white head. Rich syrup taste. Slight fruit and hoppy. An interesting and tasty brew.

Poured a dark reddy brown, with a good, though short-lived, off white head. Hoppy aroma with hints of roast nuts. Sweet, milky taste: nutty and a little chocolatey. A bitter hoppiness in the finish. Smooth palate, quite thin. Tasty dark lager. Nice hoppiness.
