A big, dark, strong beer, found at a lovely sausagehouse where the proprietors spoke no english. Sweet and malty, with the darker fruits very prevalent in the flavor.

Bottle. Feldschlosschen seemed to be the biggest brewer in Switzerland, with several different beers available. Pours clear, dark reddish-brown with a small beige head. Aroma features dark fruits, toasty malt and some floral hops. Sweet malty flavor with a bit of prune and fig, nice hop presence with floral and herby notes and a dry, toasty finish. Medium body, slightly oily feel and moderate carbonation. Very pleasant overall.

Pretty aged sample Reddish coca-cola, head in style. Dark fruit, dark malts and dark bread. Faint oxydation, quite sweet nose. Much less sweet taste, bready is there, but with green herbs, slightly spicey, faint oxydation. Pretty light MF, refreshing enough for the style. Bitterish aftertaste; dark malts. Surprisingly pleasing, just not very lively.

Dark beer with a red tinge and a pleasant gentle head. The aroma is lightly malty and the flavour is watery and sweet. Overall a pleasant refreshing drink.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown with a disappearing head. Aromas are cocoa powder, spice and roast malts. Flavours are chocolate, berries and an earthy dryness. Not really a Dunkle at all - more like a dark lager.
