3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle (BeerAngel.de)
Lovely rich reddy brown, small doughy head. Very grainy malty aroma, decent roastiness, and some curious sweet corners that I can’t quite identify. Pleasant carbonation, smooth full palate. Grainy husky taste, and again an somewhat orthogonal sweet component. The latter appears to be fruity, something like strawberry or, more likely, raspberry. Finish is fairly long, and very pleasantly bitter. Pleasantly full-bodied without sacrificing any drinkability at all. Went down lovely.

Flip-top bottle: Reddish amber coloured, smaller, stable off-white head; sweetish-caramelly, a bit toasted-malty nose with a hopped background; delicate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; solid caramelly and aromatic hoppy finish. A good Dunkel from an excellent brewery..........

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml Bügelflasche. Mindestens haltbar bis: 11.12.11. I get wet thinking of unfiltered dunkels, you wonder why there aren’t more out there.
It pours a nice brownish color with a foamy ta head that recedes with some nice lacing.
The smell is very nice, with some dark malts, bread, and a nice hop touch.
The flavor is pretty good. It is a raostier example. Reminds me of a porter. It is sweet but roasty with some subtle malt and fruit flavors.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 liked this better the second time. full rye aroma. burnt raisin wine. tasted quite citric and hoppy - probably from buying it close to the source. a little syruppiness in the finish is the only real blemish
