3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty flavor with licorice and hints of slat and grapes. The aroma is not very outspoken, but the flavor is. Medium to full bodied. A hard hitter with a soft touch.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Fassla, Bamberg. Chestnut brown with white head. Another malt dominated, sweetish beer but this time with a darker roasted character. Fruity and smooth with hints of caramel. It’s ok.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Fässla in Bamberg. Beautiful, red-brow with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel and light citrus. The flavour has sweetness, notes of malt and caramel followed by a "quiet" phase before some long lasting grapefruit turns up. IMO at bit monotone and off balance.

500ml bottle (CWAF2013, Thurs)
Rich malty aroma. Big malty body. Full malty finish. As a malt-head, this pressed my buttons and gave me everything I want in a dunkel.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Fassla. Deep brown/orange, clear appearance with a tan head. Grassy, floral hoppy, a bit toasty malty aroma. The flavor has notes of light caramel, nuts, grass, and earth. Quite nobel hoppy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (Vroni’s Bamberg): Amber to brown coloured, thin lacing head; sweetish malty nose, a touch of coffee and roasted malts, some fruitiness; soft texture, mild dry malty taste; also mild malty and only very shy bitter (chocolatey) finish; rather light bodied for a brew of 6% ABV. Well quaffable, though.....

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a small creamy off-white layer. Slightly sweet and toasted malt aroma with hints of alcohol. Light sweet flavour, toast-malty, slightly bready, crusty taste with a tinge of vegetables; medium to light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel; bittersweet slim finish. Pretty drinkable but not to be overrated.
