3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Bottle. Nose of black sugar, roasted malt. Dark brick red, foamy head. Low carbonation. Smooth drinking. Wasn’t expecting much from this but was really pleasantly surprised. Good balance of sweetness and sourness. Not huge flavours, but robust and solid. Alcohol well hidden. Liked it a lot.

Thanks Juraj for this! Lidl, Jesolo. Red-brown. Sweetish malty nose, quite correct and pleasant, more of the same in the taste though, malt dominated yet surprisingly drinkable. Not bad.

330ml bottle. Dark brown color. Tiny head, disappears rather quickly. Malty, caramel, burnt sugar in aroma. Grainy, burnt sugar, ashy caramel in flavor. Slick mouthfeel. Nasty thing. Never again.

1.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Sweet caramelly aroma, but then turns savoury - yeasty maybe, or meaty. Smooth palate, dare I say umami, OK carbonation. Has a flavour. That’s about as positive as I can be about it. Meaty yeasty flavour. But sweet too. A messy finish, all of the flaws of the taste . Not super-nasty, but really not nice at all.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malt and caramel with a dash of spice mix. Tastes like xmas beer. Beautiful strong earl grey tea color. No head. Flat carbonation, but when savored opens up and is rather pleasant. As for the finish - reminds of rauchbier. Not the best example of dunkler bock, but still is a good beer.

Small brown bottle. Copper body with a minimal head. Light toast and nuttiness in the aroma. Taste is too watery for a Dunkler Bock. This is similar to something that you’d get when you added water to a real Dunkler Bock. It’s a toasty Vienna at best. However, it would probably be a nice find in a random Italian store that otherwise sells only pale lagers.
