3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark reddish brown body with tan head. Aroma is roasted malts some hints of vanilla and a little bit swettness. Taste is not really very sweet with some roasted malts some coffee and hints of dried fruits. Aftertaste is nice bitter balanced by sweet roasted malts. Many, many years ago I was always stopping at the brewery and drinking this. Very nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated 3/29/07: Dark brown pour with a fizzy head that eventually subsides leaving spotty lacing. Aroma is a subtle blend of sweet malts and fresh bread. Medium bodied at first but the finish is thin leaving little trace of an aftertaste. Flavor is slightly more robust than the aroma. Decent malt content with sugary sweet breads and a sprinkling of brown sugar. Drinkability is very good and overall this is a nice dunkel.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Closest to Bavarian dunkel that I have found in the USA. Everything that is from Germany or even the Bavaria region that I have found here in the States doesn’t compare to what I had in Germany. This is a very good example of a dunkel.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. A clear dark red beer with a huge and persistent beige foam. The aroma is overall malty, not extremely powerful, but quite nice with notes of caramel and nuts. Light roastiness. The flavour has a medium sweetness, nice bready malts with again caramel notes and some hops in the end. Light to medium body, watery texture, average/lively carbonation, short/medium finish with light bitterness. Very drinkable, but too thin body for my taste. Worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16.9oz bottle: Murky deep brown pour with a healthy beige head that slowly settles. The nose is full of toffee and plum notes, very fresh and bright. A subtle earthiness lies beneath. The body is full with sweet caramel malts taking charge. Esthery plum and raisin follow, with notes of butterscotch leading into a creamy finish. Very good and real drinkable.
