2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A chestnut brown beer with a medium and beige head. The nose is bready, only slightly roasted, some sourbread. Taste is malty, slightly roasted, ryebread and hint of syrup. The end is drying and balanced bready. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, easy to enjoy. Malty and slightly bready, easy beer. Too boring.

Bottle. Hint of "skunky" in the bottle ater cap is removed. Pours a rich copper to brown, clear with a rocky near-tan head. At first. aroma is almost all noble hops with all of their spice and earthy notes and thankfully the skunky air was just in the bottle headspace. Halway through this 11.2oz bottle the malts pick up in the aroma. The taste I get is richly malty with toast, bread crust, hints of caramel and a sweetness that suggests plenty of residual sugar, There is a subtle bittterness which lets the complex yet focused malt character shine thorough. The body is wonderfully medium-light and lets the flavor of the malt shine through. Overall I like it but the sweetness is too much for me to really enjoy in this example. I have not tried enough Dunkels for me to know if the sweetness level is standard or correct, but I am going to work on that.

Bottled. Smell a great deal of sweet malt. Pours Dark Brown and have a off white head that dissipate fairly quickly. taste malt, caramel, brown sugar, and nutty flavors. This is a great beer that dates back to the 1600s. A fun drink if you want to fill like you are from the barbaric times. Enjoy!
