(Re-rate, keg at the brewpub, 20130513) The beer poured dark brown and hazy. Its head head was medium sized and almost white. Aroma had caramell and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, grass, butter and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. The diacetyl was a bit disturbing. Otherwise ok.

Draught, 5.5% at the brewpub. Weak sour rag aroma. Hazy dark brown colour. Nice stable, creamy light brown head. The flavour is better than the aroma, caramelly, perhaps a hint of butter, but not a problem.

Röstiger, fast verbrannter Malzantrunk. Dieses Aroma hält einige Zeit an, leicht bitter. Zum Ende zeigt sich eine leichte Hopfennote, die an sich angenehm ist aber nicht wirklich zur Malzigkeit passt. 10/9/9/8//8

(Bue sur place): Pain grillé, caramel doux et noisettes s’harmonise dans un liquide aux ambitions éphémères et sèches. Des phénols louches habitent malheureusement le liquide.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
My Bottom Line:
Plastics and peppery phenols mar this Dunkel’s toasted nuts, leading to an astringent finish.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam covers the cloudy brown with orange highlights.
-This didn’t taste like it was lagered for very long. Either that, or fermentation went uncontrolled for a while.
-Fruitiness attempts to help drinkability.
-There are so many great Dunkels in Bavaria; hard to imagine this brew doing well there, especially since the server told us that’s how it always tastes...
On tap at the brewpub.

Vom Fass at the huge Brauhaus 28 Jun 07. Brown colored. Hazy. A small creamy head. Modest malty & fruity impression throughout. A bit too carbonated. Not impressed.
