3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Old BA rate - tap)
Deep coppery brown color; half-finger of lightly tan head that was a little creamy. Sweet maltiness; a bit pruney; a little bready. Pruney sweetness at first; bit of minerals; sweetish; a little grape/wine flavors. Medium; pretty vibrant prickly carbonation. Good drinking, and easily a great session brew for a beer garden trip

UPDATED: AUG 18, 2010 Bevuta alla spina nel locale dell’HB a Genova; la dunkel dovrebbe essere una lager scura, ma in realtà non è proprio così: più maltosa, caramellata e con una schiuma più densa. Mi è piaciuta SECONDO ASSAGGIO bevuta all’HB di Monaco di Baviera, l’ho apprezzata ancora di più

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted at the Hofbrauhaus. Good appearance, nice palate but flavour went missing someplace. I had expected some caramel, possibly dark malts but no, it was just a straight up and down Dunkel. I like the style, so my rating is reasonably positive but there are many better examples.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A dark amber color pour with a bug lasting offwhite foamy head , leaving lots of spotty lacing ,lively carbonation . Aroma of dry caramel malt grain , toasty with some molasses, toffee ,and a wheat type tang .Flavor is dry and nutty with caramel and molasses, suprisingly complex, some earthy hops , a very slight metallic hint , probably from the carbonation, gets much better as it warms .Light body with a slightly dry but crisp and clean mouthfeel , short roasty finish , very drinkable and very good. This was all in all a great beer .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma - toasted bread aroma, light on the caramel
Appearance - dark brown body, hazy with a nice 2" off-white cap
Taste - not a lot of complexity, but there is some toffee/caramel notes, light Red Vine kinda thing going on
Palate - light/medium bodied, easy in the carbonation, clearly on the smoother side of things
Overall - enjoy it and the other 5 bottles that came in the 6-pack. Nice price and nice to enjoy on a Spring weekend with some sun.

Draught at one of the Bavarian Biers Cafes in Sydney. A light brown-amber
body with an ample off white head that laces nicely. Nose and taste is sweet toasted malts with coffee and mocha characteristics. Mild bitterness in the finish. Smooth and easy to drink with a medium body. An archetypal Bavarian Dunkel.
