2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Dark brown colour with a bubbling beige foamy head, leaving some lace. Sweet and dusty malty aroma with candied orange peels and dark chocolate. Sweetbitter flavour, light to medium body, smooth carbonation. Toasted and dark malty taste, notes of dark chocolate; slim and light bitter malty finish. Unfortunately a bit thin Dunkel with a strange aroma, anyway quite drinkable. (Many thanks to bierkoning for the sample !)

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2008 Small darker beige head over fully opaque red-brown beer. Creamy nose, hazelnut-chocolate spread, sweet bread, milkchocolate, and some dry instant coffeepowder. And brown sugar. Surprising lactic-sourish edge to sweet, but also roasted and even lightly smoked touches on milk chocolate. Mainly sweet, <i> Traubenzucker </i>, but glimpses of hopbitterness come peeping around the corner. Pretty balanced. Slick, light to medium bodied, but not empty. Nice, if somewhat unusual Schwarz. <i> Thanks to DeanS!</i>

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The other beers that I’ve had from Browary Warmińsko-Mazurskie Jurand were interesting in some way, shape, or form. This dunkel looks nice, a dark brown body with red highlights and a sudsy light brown head. But the light aroma of dark caramel with some drops of old coffee is way too cloyingly sweet for me. It’s a thin, watery brew and the flavor is very light, sweet caramel, a suggestion of chocolate, and much, much water. Over all, a let down.

500ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A smooth, dark malty beer with a lot of soft milk chocolate flavours finished with a tang of metal. Polish dark lagers are quite pleasant. Quite creamy and milky. British little old ladies would love this stuff. Great fun.
