3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured ruby brown with a tan head. The head did not last long. Aroma had chocolate, toffee and caramel. A bit of licorice too. The taste was pretty tasty but a bit watery at times. The aftertaste lingers for too long. It is still lingering as a matter of fact. Pretty tasty, but I have had better Dunkels.

Not usually a fan of the Hacker Pschorr beers, but this one was tasty to say the least. Nice auroma with a strong flavor. Would have again.

Yap at Zum Schneider. Ruby brown, clear, tan head. Bready aroma. Malty Munich malt flavor. Malty finish. Really good example of a dunkel.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Ludwig’s Garten in Philadelphia, PA. Dark brown but clear... not even close to being opaque. Tight head. Malty nose with slight caramel notes. Flavor is overwhelmingly malty but weak finish knocks this down a few rating points.

Draft, grainy caramel, and roasted malts flavors ending with some bitterness. Enjoyable dark beer, maybe the grain flavor was a bit overbearing for me.

Dark yellow to brown color with a small head. Malt dominates the aroma and taste. Slightly sweet finish. Not too bad.

Smells like a toned down dopplebock with an extra kick of roastiness...raisen, caramel, dark stone fruits. Pours clear deep red with a nice tight tan head. Very malty in flavor but not as much caramel as the aroma would suggest. Medium bodied. Quick slightly tart finish.

The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 63. This bottled brew from the Landidyll-Hotel in Garmisch-Partenkirchen Germany poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored mostly diminishing bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent brown colored body and a poor lacing. The aroma was a mild brown malt one. The mouth feel was initially tingly mildly vinous and finished with a mild caramel malt note. The flavor contained semi sweet notes of brown and caramel malts.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red and brown with an off-white lacy head of foam. Aromas are toffe and fruit malts, especially berries. Flavours are sweet toffee malts, chocolate and berries. Very smooth with more chocolate than I first though. Some dry hops on finish followed by a good level of bitterness. Went down nicely.
