3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 50cl. Courtesy of Quack-Duck. It pours a clear copper brown beer with a nicely remaining creamy light beige head. Caramel, moss, raisin, candy floss, lavender honey, tobacco, dried apple and lovage showing up in the nose which is malt accented. The taste is surprisingly sweet. Medium bodied. Luscious malt presence. Perfectly balanced. A lot of caramel, asparagus and candy components. Late bitterness. Beautiful lacework. Delicate carbonation. Faintly smoky. Good hop profile. Surprisingly chocolatey finish which is dry, reminiscent of chocolate powder and papaya. I prefer the taste over the nose. Definitely a delicious Dunkel. Top notch. I am impressed. Thanks a lot Quack-Duck!
