3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed, amber brown colored body with a two finger-width, creamy and foamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened caramels, some nutty toast, touches of fruit, and a hint of hops. Flavor is similar. Slightly toasty and nutty caramels with a slight bread note, a light hopping, and a touch of dark fruit. Finishes clean and somewhat dry before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid dunkel. Well balanced, easy drinking, and enjoyable on one of the first sunny, warmer days in Munich. Good beer.

Süffiger, sich getreidig malziger Antrunk. Wenig süffig, etwas erdig, frisch. Zum Ende milder, dennoch angenehm. Solide! 9/10/11/9//11

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(swing top bottle, 100cl) Hazy, dark amber to chestnut-brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Delicately roasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, a nutty touch and a delicately herbal-spicy hops profile in the background. Moderately sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Hearty and mildly roasted malty and nutty taste with hints of caramel and herbal accents; moderately dry, sweet-bitter malty finish, again with slightly roasted and balanced herbal hoppy notes. A well-crafted and not too sweet Dunkel. 28.XI.12
