3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark red to brown body, with a medium, creamy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, dark fruits and sour berries. Taste with the same aromas, also bread and nut notes. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a medium carbonation and it finishes bitter-sweet. Not bad, although I was expecting a bit more. But definitely one of the best Dunkels from Austria and fortunately not as sweet as many others.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a 500 ml. euro brown bottle with a best before date, 20.12.06, on the back label.
Poured a deep Coke Cola brown with a small off-white/beige head that settled into a thin lacing.
Aromas of toasted grains and roasted coffee malts with a light fruitiness.
Moderate carbonation and a crisp, slick and smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel.
Very tasty, a sweet caramel toffee and a roasted coffee, a soft fruitiness, a light spiciness from the hops, a little caramelized sugary towards the end and a sweet roasted malty finish.
I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this up, but this dunkel lager was flavorful and well balanced, quite quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Strong nose of licorice and soy sauce which initially dominates. The flavour mellows once it warmed up and had chocolate, licorice, soy, dark fruits and pudding. Sweet mouthfeel. A sort of love-hate relationship with this one. It really opened up and changed in the glass. Interesting beer.

Thanks rateyourpoison for sharing. Pours a deep brown with a small creamy light tan head. Aroma is sweet and chocolate malty, a bit nutty, a touch fruity with some caramel candy notes. Flavor is again very sweet and malt, cocoa and a hint of coffee though there is very limited bitterness. Some dark fruit and a bit of cola. Medium slightly creamy body and a soft carbonation. Tasty dunkel

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown with tan head. Smells of caramel. Taste of caramel and a bit raisen. Reminds me of Germany. Yes, I know it is from Austria.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color of the beer is a reddish brown with a thick off-white head, and the aroma is strongly of roasted chocolate malts, fig, and dough. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, but the palate fuses a soft carbonation, an astringent yet abrupt finish, medium body, and a creamy texture.
