4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
18 Oct 2011: Brown 500ml bottle best before the end of this month, so 12 days life left when poured into my lovely Wolnzacher Brauhaus glass tankard.
It looked fantastic, a bright amber body as clean as any beer on earth, on top an off-white head of quality.
The aroma was of earthy malts with hints of caramel and sweet molasses.
The taste an impeccable blend of all things good about German beers: the brew is obviously infused with the best ingrediants available and lovingly produced to a high standard.
Peppery aftertaste, earthy and filling, I had some rough brown bread and some mildly smoked ham with the last few drops of the beer and it suited the food beautifully.
Very impressed indeed.

Three for three with this brewery. Smells like caramel malt, sweet. The flavor is thinner than the aroma hints but still nice. This makes me think of a less sweet, less aggressive Kellertrunk.

Bottle. Strong molasses (sorghum) malt aroma. Medium tan clear color with small head. Sweet malt with hint of caramel - not too strong. Decent body and higher carbonation than typical Landbier.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice mid red/brown colour. Clear with a nice natural carbonation.
Clean and crisp on the nose with slight malt, citrus and toffee/caramel notes.
Initially sweet with the malt lasting throughout.
An underlying fruit base comes through ( like Abbot Ale ) but the malty, biscuity sweetish finish with almost a raisin aftertaste makes this a winner for me.....

Bottle @ hotel in Würzburg. Pours a brownish, dark amber with a large, beige head. Aroma is very herbal. Taste is dark bread, rye, somewhat sweet caramel, light grass and herbs in the finish. Palate is medium full, not too much so though, carbonation is just right as well for this kind of beer.

The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass as well. Zippy, nice head. Starts malty, modest dry, a bit rusty, fruity notes of raisins. Also some light smoky notes. Well balanced finish, a bit warming, very drinkable. Great beer!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colour, tall white pretty head. Aroma of bread, roasted malt, dry fruit. Medium body. Quaffable. Sweetish malty taste is accompanied by significant hoppy bitterness. Minimal acidity of roast. Delicate hops in ending. A pleasant one.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, rather creamy, small off-white head; robust sweet dark-malty, nutty, caramelly nose; sweetish (malty) flavour, light to medium bodied; sweetish-malty finish with a nutty tinge and a touch of molasses, delicate (roast-)bitterness in the aftertaste. A pleasant, tasty Dunkles...!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught Clear lighter chestnut beer with good amberish head. Very much caramel, even toffee, slightly roasted - like the honey on a pigroast. Slightly syrupy, but not cloying caramel sweetness, ending with some grass in the finish. Well-bodied, slick and nearly viscous. Nice and interesting. Exists once a year unfiltered (which must be truly great, IMO), making it apt for this category, but the usual version is rather considered a Münich at the brewery.

50cl bottle. Poured copper color with a frothy white head. Woody, caramel malt aroma, flavor is caramel, some roastedness and woody/earth notes. Flawless, simple dunkel. Enjoyable.
