2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle, purchased by a friend for my 30th birthday...Pours a clear, sparkling cherry wood with a small, cream colored frothy head. Spare lacing...Smell light perfume hops and definite caramel malts, also detect a light alcohol aroma...Early carbonation with an oddly sticky texture. Medium bodied and a definite metallic finish...Short earthy caramel flavor and lightly bitter...Best word to describe this brew is "odd". A dry, smoky, apple taste with not much else really going on. Not bad, but borderline boring. Could drink a few if I didn’t have many other options but I also wouldn’t care if I never had this again.

Not a bad beer at all. Both draft & bottle(if fresh)
It has a bit of a sweet taste & more aftertaste than I want but all in all most fair. I like warsteiner dunkel much better though..

From Bottle: a small head leads to a espresso aroma. It had a very dark brown pour as well. Hoppy and sweet.

Aroma is interesting- sweet and salty, with a hint of soy sauce and even some berry notes. Flavor is full and rich, malty, sweet, toasty, with a bit of caramel and no perceptible bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but not watery. I like it!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A middle of the road dunkel. Poors well and not much of a aftertaste. Wait for it to warm up some to bring out the flavour. Bland until about 55 - 60 degrees.

Maybe if you burnt your tongue or dipped the rim in manure Dinkelacker Dunkel (Dark) could taste bad. Otherwise this is a stellar beer, with a potent cherry-wood flavor and aroma, smooth body and plesant after taste. If you cannot taste this beer, please consult your doctor immediately. From the bottle, and especially from the tap, this beer is top notch.
