3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Half liter bottle. A drinkable, non-watered down dunkel with some quality roasted caramel malts through out. The aroma is hazy and light, though well balanced like the flavor notes. Some caramel malts, light coffee, roasted biscuits, and a crisp herbal grass. On the pour, a fluffy of off-white and well carbonated head, nice retention, light-medium in body, and deep ruby in color. The feel is not as carbonated as expected, and actually decently sticky and creamy and not too thin either. Minor mild-dark fruits up front, with some nutty, roasted biscuit malts and caramels coming after. Clean grassy hop mix in with the malt, but still finishes malty nutty. Not a ton of flaws here. This was solid, easy drinking.

Beige foamy head. Mahogany colour. Aroma is malty with light roasty and bready notes. Flavor is malty too with light fruity and roasty tones, ending in a malty slightly nutty finish. Light bodied.

Dark colored with light tan head. It has some chocolated taste with hint of roasted coffee and some caramel maltness. Very drinkable because of light body. It’s tastes really nice.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent dunkel with moderate depth of flavor, thin mouthfeel, and moderate bitterness. Nothing outstanding about it though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tastes better than it smells. Sweet and malty, with a lightly dry finish. Rather uninteresting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma maltato, caramellato. Colore marrone con un bel cappello di schiuma persistente. L’assalto al palato č dominato dal malto, supportato da una dose leggera di luppolatura. Una birra caramellata e dolce come ci si aspetterebbe da una Dunkel. Un buona bevuta.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A frothy-headed, deep woods brown lager. Heft of malt well balanced like their German cousins. Maly and toasted with notes or raisin. The Europeans just do this beer better than we do.

Pretty good... Malty, slightly sweet, in both the aroma and flavor... wasn’t watered down tasting... enjoyable.
