3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
Deep red, brief spongy beige head. Rich grainy aroma, sweet. Really grainy in fact, some huskiness. But also really sweet. Smooth, sweet body, rich roasty and sugary retronasals, carbonation soft. Residual sugars not only high, but I notice there’s saccharin in the ingredients, which I have to penalise them for. Tasty roast, but just too sweet. Drinkable, but leaves me thirstier due to the stickiness! (6:4:6:4:10=3.0)
Rerate: 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
5+ simple sweet dark lager aroma, tough of roast.
4 dark red, ring head
6 bacony retronasals. Pleasant roasty taste, quite dry in the burntness
3 refreshing palate, carbonation crisp.
12 more burnt and less sweet than the average czech dunkel.

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.

Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense, August 2005. Quite deep red colour. Sweetish malt character with some chocolate, plus something fruity and slightly sour - reminded me of tamarind. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Hints of bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap. If Dunkel could look better than this one how would it look? Sweet, deep brownish color. Creamy thick crown. Aroma - this is the other side of medal. Slightly organic, not the freshest, slightly sulphuric. Flavours were flat and boring, sweet.
