Buxtehuder Dunkel ist ein betont malziges Bier nach Pilsener Brauart. Sein Antrunk ist lieblich bis süffig. Im Abtrunk besticht dieses Bier durch eine feine malzaromatische Note. Unter Verwendung von Dunklem Malz (Typ Münchner) erhält dieses Bier seine typische Farbe. Eine mildere Hopfung gibt zudem einen lieblicheren Geschmack. Der Stammwürzegehalt dieses Bieres beträgt 12,5%

(Hand-bottled by Yogi_Beera - thanks!) At least the beginning is good: this looks exactly the same as the magnificent Hollolan Hirvi Kivisahti; cloudy dark amber. Aroma is lightly malty and yeasty, fruity and sour - as in all beers I got from this Brewhouse. Lightly toasted malt notes in flavor with some dry berries. Sour with dryish finish with some smoke notes. Watery. After the journey to Finland this is definitely not what it should be. Not really an enjoyable experience, got to admit.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours almost clear and golden deep brown with a creamy, tan and lasting head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, breadish and with a dark toffee note. Quite sweet, caramelish, toffee and bit of liqourice. Ends lingering dark malty and roasted caramelish. Sweet overall impression.

Draught at the brewpub. The color is dark amber and the head is creamy. The aroma has notes of syrup, caramel, nuts and a little butterscotch. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of roasted malt, syrup, nuts, caramel, light butterscotch and the overall impression is very smooth, harmonic and pleasant.

MiP (15304) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 10, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Aroma has a little diacetyl. Cloudy orange/brown colour. The flavour is acidic and with diacetyl. I guess it happens to balance, but that does not seem intentional.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - APR 30, 2006
Toasted malt and molasses nose, cloudy dark amber color, foamy head. Caramel malt taste, spicy end. Big chewy body, full of character. Stands on its own or could go with a meal too. Nice one.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 25, 2006
(bottle, refilled from a growler by Yogi_Beera and pivo – many thanks!) Hazy murky amber colour with a small foamy layer. Slightly sweet malty aroma with toffee and a light sourish fruity touch of red berries and lemon. Slightly sweet flavour, light body, low carbonation (probably due to the refilling). Light-sweet, slightly toasted malty taste with toffee and a fruity touch; very mild, almost watery but not unpleasant mouthfeel; dry and slightly tart and fruity finish.
