3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle as Hacklberg Dunkel. 333. BB 28/05/2013. From bierundbier.de.
Clear hazelnut colour with a small to average sized off-white head.
Lots of malty sweetness, diacetyl, some bread, nuts and mild hops in the aroma. The flavour is somewhere between dry German Dunkel and sweet Czech Tmavý. Diacetyl, sweetness, toasted malt and some hops in the flavour. Not bad in any way but still I won’t remember this tomorrow. Some dryness in the aftertaste. Nuts too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At brewery. Dark brown with red tint and a big brown head. The aroma is like a doppelbock, with big malty bread crust. Flavors are the same with a light palate, and an excellent herbal quality (caraway?) that works and adds complexity so it’s not just about the bread crust. I really dug this beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Clear, cola color with large head. Sweetish, roasted-malty, quite full and sugary aroma. Sweet and malty, slightly roasted flavor. Almost Dark Kozel-like, but fuller in body. Medium-bodied, syrupy palate with sugary aftertaste and well-balanced carbonation. A nice, sweet and clean, easily drinkable dunkel.
