Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts mild-malty, modest sweet, not too dry. Very well balanced. Finish soft-malty, mild, still modest sweet. Could be a bit drier, but still a good one!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The last beer I’ve had at the F-Fest. Porued a misty dark amberred body. Correct sweet malty nose. Sweet, balanced grainy dunkel sporting some notes that get close to dogfood, but not exactly. Not the best beer of the festival.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slender swing-top by 20.10.2012. Nose is a little stale, earth toffee and faint roast, faint fruit. Ruby body is dark with a slight haze, loud tan head. Maltiness comes out much better in the mouth, with a very pretty swash of nuttiness, light mocha leaning toward wood, with restrained but succulent fruit. Only lightly sweet, touch of hop oil and even tang under that, but not bitter. Smooth full body is just right. I venture to call it elegant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light to moderate malt notes of roasted and caramel, light herbs and dough for the hops and yeast, with brown sugar and fig in the background. Head is small, fizzy, off-white with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is clear rusty brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, then finishes lightly sweet and acidic and faintly bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery yet smooth and has a lively carbonation. Nothing outstanding in this Dunkel, but it’s absolutely true to style and is very easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Zu milder Malzantrunk. Immerhin ist das Malz angenehm und passend aromatisch, leider wie gesagt zu mild. Es ist aber trotzdem das stärkste Aroma. Wässrig, zum Ende trocken röstig und stimmiger, die Intensität ist nun akzeptabel. Lustlos. 12/8/8/9/7/8
