3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a stable light brown head. Sweet malt, licorice, molasses, coffee, light chocolate and soy sauce aroma. The flavour has a very big soy sauce taste to it with sweet malt and coffee also present. As it warmed it then took on more complexity and signs of more chocolate, caramel and raisins. The soy sauce character was then not as intense. Very complex and not unpleasant but at first a little too much soy for my liking. It then did a back-flip and became really enjoyable. Need to remind myself not to drink this so chilled if I come across this again. Very interesting and complex dunkel.

Drank from the bottle, unfortunately didn’t have a cup to pour into so I couldn’t properly assess aroma or color. Tastes smooth, if not a bit light. Hints of malt, dark fruit and caramel. Good mouthfeel, not great but good.

Dark amber, small tan head, clear. Aromas of malt predominate, with a bit of dark fruit and hops - kind of like a german bock. Taste is light - almost a bit too light, seems a bit watery - and fairly sweet, small amount of bitterness. This is a good lager that could be very good with a bit more malt.

I drank a liter of this stuff at Lachet’s in Chicago. Good times. It’s a dunkel fairly standard for the style and just a nice, drinkable lager. Munich malt character was perhaps not as strong as it should be but had a certain raisiny malt character that was pleasant none the less with a gentle bitterness to round things out. Held up really well to smoked pork and sauerkraut.

A lovely deep reddish-brown color with thin to no head. Chocolate/coffee aromas. Flavor is a nice mix of sweet and bitter. Palate a bit on the thin side with a nice finish to it. Interesting beer that is definitely worth a try.
