Nothing to write home about here. Starts off bitter caramel, but flavor actually improves as it warms slightly. Maybe it’s just an acquired taste, but maybe it’s not too good. Guess I have five more tries to figure that out.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep mahogany color with a nice head and some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit and grain. taste follows with roasted malt, bit of dark fruit and caramel sweetness and grain. Solid bitterness and a dry finish with a lingering bitterness. Fairly light body, quite smooth but with a grainy texture. Decent beer for the style.

WillemsUrenkel (1328) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2014
0,33 l bottle, typical Einbecker bottle design. Dark redbrown in the glass, beige head. Light sweet malt on the nose. Starts with more malt, first low sourness, followed by sweet sequencies.Later low roast malty on a mild level. Hints of Pilsener without herb. Okay.

Moravius (1041) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2014 Flasche vom Marktkauf-Getränkemarkt Einbeck. - Schwarzbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer. Antrunk röstmalzig aber nicht süß, pikant säuerlich und leicht hopfenherb. Gut rezent, etwas dünn. Noten von Johannisbeere, Bitterschokolade, Holz. Läßt sich dank der erfrischenden Säuerlichkeit leicht trinken. Im Abgang röstmalzbitter mit einer Spur von Hopfenherbe. - Unorthodoxes, süffiges Schwarzbier mit leichten Hopfendefiziten.

Bottle at the Dolphin Hotel at Disney Orlando. Poured into an American shaker pint. Dark brown pour with little head. Rather thin looking. Aroma of malts, some toast and roast, dark bread, and hop profile. Taste was rather bland with a hint of roasted malts and some hops to balance. Kind of watery. Thin body with some carbonation. Pretty mediocre.

My 33cl bottle was bought in Berlin: so it is just a ’dunkel’ on the label. Poured into an ’Augustijn’ badged chalice at home on 26 Apr 2013. Ruby coloured body, clean and clear: beige, full head. The nose is more grainy than malty: with dark berry esters thrown in for good measure. The taste is maltier than the aroma hints at and those grain smells don’t appear in the flavours. Undertones of sweetness which don’t surface fully hide behind a mild hop crispness that doesn’t turn the brew bitter or overly dry. Interesting and one of the better German brewed Dunkels I’ve had so far.

The epitome of German dunkles. Solid full bodied crisp taste with a malty finish. Light fizzy creamy head.
