TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 2, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2006 Bottle at the brewery, a clear golden brown with a pillowy white head. A sweet malty aroma with a little molasses. Very sweet in the mouth, slightly syrupy mouthfeel with a tartish finish.

The dwarf’s beer!
Tried this from the bottle into a Fässla stein at the Bräuhaus, Bamberg, Germany.
Place was raging whilst I knocked this one back. Germany won in a shoot out at the World Cup, the young were lively, the more mature absolutely raucous and then there was my wife and I, the only visitors from abroad. This place rocked long into the wee hours, no chance of sleep. Absolutely fell in love with Fässla, and this beer is just another notch on the side of grandish.
Bright mahogany body, very scarcely carbonated but managed to raise up a lovely, fluffy, rocky tan head that held on tight and snowed over the entire glass. Very musty, oddly aged malt nose. Strange, reminiscent of a dank cellar and a moist forest floor with touches of ripe, fell fruit that add a spice, and just a little smoke showing late. Enticing, funky!!!
Palate is quite dry, a little vinous and slightly fruity and musty like the aroma. Good depth of malt, light smoke and a little tang of tannins down the back that doesn’t upset the balance. Very well rounded, good solid feel in the mouth, and definitely flavoursome. Medium-light in body, and soft and creamy on the tongue. Swallow holds a light metal tinge, just a touch of bitter, burnt malts and is woody and malty long into the swallow. This is quite a unique tasting Dunkel. Very refreshing and bloody popular with the locals, the young mostly which is good to see. A unique one, balanced and well crafted. Good too the last.... cheers to Fässla!!!!

A bit anonymous. The taste you get is a nice combination between malts and hops. Nice balanced. Zwergla means dwarf.

500 ml bottle picked up at Maruhn in Darmstadt, Germany. Is a dark clear tea color with a little tan head. Soft aroma with lots of roasted caramel. Also soft sweet taste with more of rostedness, caramel and some dark fruit. Palate is very light and easy to drink. Nice brew.
