3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Freshly made taster, 4.7 % abv, on a visit to the brewery. Solid white head to a cloudy dark apricot coloured body. Inviting malt-fruity aroma. Fresh and dried fruits in a well-blended flavour profile. Fruit hoppy ending, semi-dry. Medium bodied. Likable (Schnaid, Hallerndoft 11.10.2014).

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle in Strassgiech.
Head is initially large, fully lasting.
Body is dark amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (cookie, caramel, roasted hazelnuts), with notes of honey, toffee, orange peel, hint of smoke.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Incredibly alluring nose, but the mouth experience didn’t quite live up to its promise...doesn’t have the usual silky mouthfeel. And yet still an excellent beer overall. Had a hard time competing with the other stuff Andy brought out that night in terms of complete drinking pleasure, but still every time I went to sniff the glass of this one I was amazed at the nose.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
29/09/2012 Ma che siete venuti a fà (tap). Bruna, abbastanza limpida, riflessi color miele di castagno, schiuma biancastra porca, morbida, non molto abbondante, abbastanza persistente. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, caramello, leggera luppolatura. In bocca è dolciastra, caramellata, tostata, piacevolmente bilanciata sull’amaro. Corpo leggero, piacevolmente "watery", carbonatazione corretta. Non sono certo un amante del genere, ma questa è la miglior dunkel mai bevuta, senza ombra di dubbio.

Tasted at the brewery with Andreas. hazy dark orange/brown appearance with a cream colored head. Incredibly uniquely spicy, nutmeg toasty, dark malty aroma. Delicious cocoa, rich nutty, very toasty malty flavor. Unbelievable delicious. A real fucking treat.
