pivnizub (9150) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 21, 2007
Bottle (purchased at the brewery): Reddish-amber coloured, visible carbonation, smaller, but lacing white head; caramelly-malty nose with a tinge of coffee and a distinctive(!) aromatic hoppiness, located a bit in the background; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; sweet-bitter finish, caramel, toasted/roasted malt and a small amount of hops detectable. A well crafted, very decent Dunkles........

MoritzF (8639) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2007
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a big, light-beige foamy head. Moderately sweet, roasty malty aroma with cacao, a light touch of citrus in combination with an aromatic hoppy blend. Sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a well-carbonated mouthfeel. Moderately roasted malty taste with notes of cacao and caramel; sweet and slightly bitter finish with a light herbal hops character. Another goodie from Freudenberg.
