0,5 swing top bottle shared with McTapps. A huge and nice surprise. Full body with a great aroma reminding me some Guinness. Extremely quaff with an earthy aroma. Superb beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a chestnut brown body with some amberish tones present.
Smell: A smell of toasted hearty dark bread, incredibly faint roast flecks, apple skin, and old, dried herbs.
Taste: Soundly toasty malts, a little hint of dark caramel, though not particularly sweet hiding what seems to be some grainy pils underneath. Even a touch of roast in there. Faint, faint touch of apple skin. Dried herbal tone from the hops with enough bitterness to balance things out.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Reasonably smooth mouthfeel.
Overall: A decent dark lager.

.5 liter swing-top bottle. BB: 25.09.13. Brown color, brown foam, great lacing. Aroma of toasted brown grains. Fresh aroma, smells like a fresh, hearty Dunkel. Light taste, toasted grains, grassy hops. Some flavors of chocolate, nice roast. Clean finish, hearty malt flavors. A suberb Dunkel! (3553)

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is slightly toasted with paper, mixed grain, and chocolate. The appearance is light brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a mineral quality. The palate is a bit thin. Overall very weak and disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50cl, a clear dark-amber beer with medium head. Nose is very malty and caramel like. Aroma is medium sweet with a good malt body on toasted notes, caramel, brown bread, fruit notes on dry grapes, yes it’s more a dunkel as a Kellerbier as stated on the label. Finish is slightly hopy on the peppery side.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Labeled Landsknecht Dunkles Kellerbier (5.2% ABV): Grainy nose, dirty. Clear brown, thick cream colored head, some lacing. Dirty chocolate flavor, grainy. Not very intense, but flavors are fairly easily discernible. Pecan finish. Light body. Quite a nice session beer that isn’t cloying, hoppy, or overly roasty.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) pours a hazy dark ruby-amber colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of light roasted malts and dark fruit, very starchy, with lots of chestnut honey and bread crusts. flavour is more mellow, roasted malts and caramel, again quite starchy, with only a hint of grain. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle (beerangel.de), shared with ogivlado. The back label calls this a Dunkles Kellerbier. Interesting. Pours a hazy red/brown body with a darker off-white head that went away slowly. The nose is odd... dry dog food (coming from either yeast or grain or both) with some coffee as well. The taste is sweet, coffee, dog food again, crackers. Yeasty. Soft mouthfeel, drinkable. Ok but not my type of beer I guess. Interesting to try a sub style like this though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy dark brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is quite malty with some caramel coming through in there. Taste is much the same and is a little bit sweet.
