3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jan. ’16. On tap at Känguruh, Vienna. It poured a clear, dark brown body with a big brown head atop. Aroma of roasted malt like coffee, cocoa and wood. Flavor was lightly bitter, roasted, with coffee, rye, a bit of wood and licorice. Smoothed by fine cocoa and dark chocolate. Relatively full body for a Schwarzbier, a quite nice one. Surprised it’s listed here as a Dunkel.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
frothy, minimal head, disappears quickly, looks like a coke in a beer glass. aroma is roasty, some chocolate but in general a bit weak. taste is supprisingly thin for a 6.5 ABV beer. some chocholate but also a weird sourish taste, might be infected? Have to try again.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear dark brown color, small tan head. It seems this ones is rotten. Which is strange, expiration was still good. Anyway, acidic cabbage aroma, same with taste, infected and all, with presence of roasted malt. Creamy texture, soft carbonated. Sweet and sour finish. Too bad, I hope I will be able to try it again and re-rate it sometimes in the future.
Style rating dropped from 82 to 65 after my entry, I feel so bad right now.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark brown body, with a medium, creamy, tan head. Rich aroma of chocolate, nuts, dark berries, dried fruits, some coffee. Taste is a bit thinner, with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a medium carbonation and it finishes moderate, roasty, nutty and a bit sour-fruity. Very good, propably one of the best Dunkels from Austria. Good balance between sweet and roasty. Unfortunately the taste doesn’t fully live up to the nose, but it has a great drinkability instead.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at in Vienna. Pours out a dark brown topped with a nice head. Nose is sweet milk chocolate roast malts and spice. Taste is the nose with malts leading the way a little to much chocolate sweetness. Not to bad overall thought.
