In bottle at home with Sev. Pours an amber colour with a thin beige head. Malty aroma is a little smoky and also quite nutty. Again a little smoky flavour with caramel, plums and chocolate. Mild carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite subtle for a Bamberg beer.

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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 50cl. Clear amber brown color, small sizzling creamy off-white head, disappears rather quickly, thin layer remains, fair lacing; rich aroma of roasted malts, bread, brown sugar, licorice, some fruity notes, touch of coffee; taste medium sweet and slightly bitter, roasted malts, bit of coffee; medium to full body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation; finish is mild bittersweet, hint of chocolate, bit peppery, roasty maltiness lingers on. Bit strong for a dunkel, but I don’t mind...

(Bue à la brasserie): Une mousse qui se dissipe rapidement laisse les arômes de grains rôtis, torréfiés et de noisettes caramélisés. La texture est pas aussi optimale que certaines Dunkel mais les saveurs compensent.
