Black-red colored with little brown head. Roasted, bit chocolaty aroma with some dark fruits and thin licorice. Thin to medium bodied, carbonated palate. Flavor is more roasted with nice hopped grassy note, aftertaste dries with hops, some caramelly-chocolaty note here as well.

Moravius (462) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 12, 2014
Flasche von Hopfen & Malz, Berlin. - Schönes Kastanienbraun, klar. - In der Nase Karamelbonbons und deutliche milde Säure. - Der Antrunk ist breit malzig-süß mit milden Röstmalznoten und einer frischen pikant-fruchtigen Note. Durchschnittlich rezent, vollmundig. Dunkles Malz und ein pikanter Säureton bilden einen angenehmen Kontrast; hinzu kommt etwas Gras. Zum Ende hin etwas leer. Klingt malzig und fruchtig mit nur einer Ahnung von zitrusfruchtigem Hopfen aus. - Weniger süß als andere Dunkle, könnte aber für meinen Geschmack deutlich mehr Röstmalz und mehr Hopfen bieten.

There is an aroma that includes caramel, bread, and nuts. It has a dark brown color with a medium bodied light brown head. There is a toffee, nut, and caramel taste that has a bit too much carbonation.

Bottle from Vinosity. Medium cola brown pour with a large off-white head. The nose is sweet, quite nutty. Plenty of rich malty sweetness. Caramel, toasted pumpernickel bread, toffee. Chestnut. The taste is sweet. Rich malt profile. Candied nut and caramel. Light spiciness. A touch metallic on the finish. Medium body, active carbonation on the palate. Overall, pretty tasty stuff. The kind of thing you’d want on a cool fall day.

Quack-Duck (7794) - Down South, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2013
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear brown colour, creamy off-white head. Subtle hop aroma, reminding me of their Helles. Grainy and robust malty base with lots of dark malts, caramel and a shy touch of dark fruit. Lovely hops, woody, earthy and slightly grassy and floral. What a stunning Dunkel!

Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass dark brown, nice head. Starts mild-malty, modest dry, not too roasty. Finish with some earthy hints, malty-dry. Mild, but not washy. Nice!
