Bottle looks good but a bit complex. Beer in the glass very zippy, huge head. Starts malty-dry, modest roasty-scratchy. More and more moldy, finish too unbalanced, so not very drinkable. Not so good.

@brewpub. It’s mahogany red with a creamy head. The aroma has light notes of butter, syrup and caramel. The flavor has a light sweetness and notes of syrup, caramel, a little licorice and the finish is slightly dry - it’s a nice dunkel.

500ml bottle (OPP, Helsinki. German Weeks 2009)
Strong oxtail soup aroma. Deep ruby, small head. Pleasant carbonation, refreshing body with cocao retronasals. Pleasant weet fruity esters, plenty of roast malt, some toasty burnt corners. Quite simple, but so tasty. More chocolate as it warms.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (purchased at the Brauerei): Clear, chestnut-amber coloured, slowly collapsing "dirty" foam; sweetish caramelly nose with a good dash of roasted malt and a faint tinge of hops; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; almost lingering, not so sweet caramelly-bitter finish. Unspectacular, but nevertheless pleasant Dunkel............
