TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draught at Brauerei Eichhorn, Nov. 2012: Bronze with golden highlights. Creamy and persistent cap of clingy meringue. Clean, airy, expressively malty nose teems with melanoidins, hazelnut, browned toffee, nuts, earthy cocoa, and a vibrant "green" hoppiness. Underlying tropical fruitiness. Firm, snug carbonation. Tease of estery fruitiness yields to wonderfully crisp, toffee-kissed Munich and a savory medley of fresh baguette and creamed coffee. Splash of licorice underscores the maltiness with deft restraint. Pronounced bite of yeast and minerals accentuates the seductively juicy malt bill. Hops pack plenty of luster, as well. Exceptionally succulent florals artfully mirror the fat and juicy melanoidins. Chewy, mouth-filing dextrins and a bitter edge of pumpernickel bread saturate the dry, cleanly attenuated finish. A flawless example devoid of the boring cola dullness, etc. An amazingly clean, quaffable, and intricate version.

3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 draft at Brauerei Eichhorn in Forchheim. soft and toasty nose presents munich malt cracker and baked cookie goodness with a sweet touch of toffee candies and a rustic, slightly-chalky yeast with faint metallic touches. sweet with a slick texture on the approach, frothy carbonation and solid crispness to the body, tempered somewhat by the sweet toast / nut character of the dark malt. endlessly enjoyable.

oh6gdx (20238) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled. Deep amber colour with a mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is mildly toasted malts, some slight caramel, toffee and dark berries. Flavour is sweet malts along with mild toasted notes. Also surprisingly hopped for a dunkel, has a quite bittery undertone to it. Mild sourish wood lurking in the background.

Quite decent brew.......
