3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (@ PivniGaleriePraha): Ruby-amber coloured, medium-sized fluffy tanned head, lacing and slowly collapsing; sweet dark-malty, caramelly nose with a distinctive touch of toasted malt; sweet (malty) flavour, surprisingly full bodied, velvet MF; longer sweet-caramelly finish with a delicate bitterness in the very end. A bit on the sweet side, but all in all a very pleasant and decent Dunkles !

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in Praha:
Creamy foam on mahogany-brown. Roasted berries and earthy wilderness project oncoming tartness. Dry red wine grapes are perceived.
A cushion-y malt core is topped by sweet cherries, grapes and various berries. Earthy humidity meets light sourness, which gets uncomfortable after a while.
Sitting on forest soil is refreshing.

Bottle. Light brown creamy high and lasting head. Clear but very dark red brown body. Sweet and fruity aroma of burned malt and caramel. Very sweet flavor indeed, no bitterness, little carbonation, as indicated by the aroma the flavor is of burned malt with sugar and caramel. Long and pleasant aftertaste.
