3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
draught at hofbrauhaus in munich. pours ruby with white head. nose of sweet wet grains, slightly toffee and chocolate. flavor is crisp and clean with mild hints of sweet grains, oats, caramel, and chocolate. very drinkable but not that flavorful and watery mouthfeel (sounds like a beer in munich). carb is smooth a decent and accessible dunkel.

Draught at Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Served up dark brown with reddish hues and a light brown head. Would lace nicely. Malty, doughy, slightly sweet aroma. A basic malty flavor, a bit dry and unremarkable. Medium bodied, dryness lingered.

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.

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.
