Thanks to ghawener. As with this type of beer, malt dominates this brew. Pours out nicely, amber color with a nice creamy head. Sweet malts that lingers in your mouth.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market square Liquors, 12 oz bottle. Medium to dark copper pour, slight, beady off-white head. Good, sweet, caramelly aroma with some essence of wort. Flavor has some nice chocolate hints with a backdrop of caramel, some molasses stickiness. Hint of bitterness in the finish. Slightly thin mouthfeel - but not bad for the style. All in all, a most decent Dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very "beer" smelling - German hops, slight green bottle skunking, blackstrap molasses, toasted grain. Very large head, nice label and cap, medium-dark clear brew. Very balanced, nicely bittered, toasted malty-sweet. Not too heavy, medium mouth, could easily go as a session beer. Finishes cleanly, but with character. I enjoyed this. Market Square Liquors, Tallahassee.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, but have also tried draft in Munich, which I really enjoyed but did not rate. Mild aroma, malty with a touch of floral. Small, disappointing head, white and fizzy, which quickly diminishes. Medium weight mouthfeel. Flavor starts with toasty molasses, but well balanced with bitter toward the end, which lingers on the palate. Not incredibly complex, but enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 7/29/07. Draft at Hofbräuhaus in Las Vegas, NV. Translucent chestnut color with a massive, white, foamy head. Excellent lacing all the way down the glass. The aroma is very fruity, floral and yeasty. The flavor is essentially the same, but it had a somewhat unpleasant metallic tinge to it. The body was rather thin and watery. Refreshing on a 105 degree Las Vegas day, but far from special.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An average dunkel at best. Aroma was alomst 0 but could pick up some malt in there. Pour was a very disappointing flat dark amber/brown with no head at all. Taste was very malty with some dough and dark fruits in the background. OK but not noteable.
