Bottle. Pours a clear amber golden with a small white head. Light aroma of roasted malt, sweet malty, a touch of coffee and roasted malts and some fruitiness. Mild dry malty taste, also mild malty and only very shy bitter (chocolatey) finish.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is very faintly malty. The flavor though is sweet malty with light notes of caramel combined with a hints of alcohol. Boring. I find both the appearance and the alcohol content of this beer closer to that of a bock than a dunkel.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear amber golden with a small, white head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Rather solid body with distinct notes of roasted malt. Lightly alcoholic finish. Solid if not exactly thrilling German brew. Not really a Dunkel, but not a straight Bock either. 200606

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Deep reddish colour with mediumsized beige head. ARoma is fruits, nectar and slight hints of glue. Flavour is very much the same. Quite weird brew for being German, but still quite pleasant and drinkable.

Pale nut brown. Dry coffeeish. Flavourful and interesting, but on the thin side.

25th January 2014
Bamberg Bash Day 2. Train bottle swig. Light haze on this deep amber beer, big off white head. Smooth and dry palate. Light fine carbonation. Smooth malt with a little burned toffee. Light dried fruits and mild dry finish. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Markgrafen, Bamberg
Dark chestnut color, clean; generous, compact head. Aroma of caramel, paper, cereals, light vanilla (not impressive). Correct body; the mild flavor of dark caramel is dry and quite poor; the bitterness is low and some comes from the roasted malt. The final is empty from any emotion. Boring.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle from Ealing BF 2007. Russet colour with disappearing off white head. Some smokey toffee aroma, bit of rubber. Smokey rubber mid dark beer. Less smokey than Schlenkerla marzen, but smooth, more toffeeish, better mouthfeel. Smoke on finish is good. Very good smooth, deep marzen.
