Dark Brown colour with middling malty head, had from pressure tap in Trieste, Italy. Sweet malt flavours dominate although thinner than I expected. Highly carbonated, so much so that i was difficult to drink. Some bitterness but mostly balnd.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz green bottle, the label is in the wrong place.
It isn’t skunked luckily. It pours a deep dark brown with hues of red and a big foamy off-white head.
As mentioned there is no skunk in the smell, it has a bit of astringent smell to it. It is malty, sugary, maybe some brown sugar, smelling.
It has a nice thick mouthfeel but as far as Munich dunkels go this one is weak in flavor. Slightly metallic, sugary dark malts, hint of roastiness, with not much hops. It is too watery flavored.
Overall it is a fail for the style in the taste department.
