Thin dark beer with almost a purplish color with a bit of caramel and chocolate (but light). No bitter/sour, but mildly sweet. Light on the tongue, not fizzy, a bit soft. Would be awesome with a bread type dish

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Trendy frosted white bottle. Fairly roasted caramel light salted peanut aroma. Red chestnut, golden layer. Big roast and chocolate initially, much more than usually so in a german dunkel. Mellows to a medium chewy sweet body with a herbal light spicy finish. Mellow mouthfeel. Quick roasted aftertaste. Interresting.
