3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium dark-yellow head over faintly hazy foxy-amber beer. Nice bready & leafy/earthy notes, dark malts announcing themselves. Dry, melanoidin-determined taste, faintly nutty and leafy. Sweetish finish with a hint of coffee. Soft creamy MF, well-carbonated. Long, faintly wry aftertaste. Very nice Dunkel (or rather, Bernsteinfarbiges!) Many thanks to DonS!

Unlabeled bottle. Beer in the glass looks really good. Nice, creamy head. Starts mild and malty, not too roasty, fine smoky finish. Very drinkable. Very good beer!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, kindly delivered by Frankenland! A bit hazy, chestnut-amber coloured with creamy beige head. Caramelly and hoppy, but also metallic nose. Moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light bodied to thin. Traces of caramel in the metallic-bitter finish. Not really convincing, not typical for the style........

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy, chestnut-brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Moderately sweet, toffee-ish and toast-malty aroma with lighter notes of vanilla and shy herbal hops. Light-sweet flavour, slim bodied, but not watery mouthfeel with a well-matured carbonation. Toasty malt-accented taste with caramel. Herbal notes show up towards the moderately dry and not consequently lasting finish. Nice enough [09.XII.08].

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 Gift from the brewer. Tap, the brewery doesn’t bottle anymore. Malty coffee aroma and flavor. Strong barnyard smell. Bitter, caramelly aftertaste. Hazy dark color. Very interesting beer from this tiny village brewery.
Bottle tasted more than 10 years later. Brown color. Caramel aroma with some grassy hops. Malty sweetish flavor with caramel and milk chocolate. Bready, sticky mouthfeel. Pleasant.
