3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy with a frothy top fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated brown colored body and a good lacing. The weak aroma was sweet and dark malt. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
You could call this dunkel a schwartzbier and I wouldn’t argue. It pours a dark brown body highlighted in ruby with a respectable creamy tan head. Nice lacing. The aroma is sweet with lightly roasted malts, some bittersweet chocolate, and crushed walnuts. Nice sweet roasted malt flavor, dark caramel, a nutty bitterness, and a suggestion of coffee grounds. Good sessionable lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear bright light chestnut color with just a hint of rudy when held to the light. Moderate ecru colored head. Nice lace. LIghtly toasted malt aromas dominate with hints of cocoa and herbal hops. Somewhat simple, but no faults. Dark caramel sweetness that fades to a black malt bitterness. Quite nutty and lightly salty in the linger. Dry somewhat grassy finish. This is a nice summertime dark lager. Quenching and dry in the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark but not black, can see through it. Big bottle at Solstice. Smells like tar, oil, nutty. Weird. Thick palate. Seems bland but I think it tastes how it is supposed to. Not my favorite but I appreciate it

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Sweet aroma of caramel, toffee, toast, and light fruitiness (red berry?). Deep ruby body with a lacing, neatly tanned head. Taste is predominately sweet (but nowhere near cloying), fruity and lightly sugary with caramelly malt and a few tones of dark, nutty toffee splashed on. Body is crisp from carbonation but very smooth and drinkable, medium-light in thickness. Aftertaste is toasty, very dry, and lightly hoppy. Pretty nice, a very good session.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled during Cheesehead YeHA in Brookfield, Wisconsin and shared by Ughsmash. Pours a light copper amber brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind a fine film and light white ring with some spotty lacing. Aroma of sweetened bread dough, some powdered baker’s chocolate, caramel malt and some flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, light carbonation with flavors of biscuit dough, dark chocolate some oak wood and a touch of dark fruit. Finish is slightly dry and mild bitter with a bread dough and chocolate aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This poured with a dark brown and garnet high lighted body. The head was a medium khaki and clung to the glass. Pancakes, caramel and some almonds made for a rich nose. The taste had some caramel with iced tea. There was also a hint of nice milk chocolate in the finish. A smooth and slick body help to make this a nice session brew. A pretty good dunkel.
