3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught Very stable yellow head, leaving lace, over chestnut-brown beer. Rainwater, dark autumn leaves, and a bit fruity - and of course very malty. Again leafy & malty; sweet, but nowhere exaggeratedly. Coloured malts, without roastedness. Ends a tad woody. Quite well-bodied, slick, near-syrupy. Much better than feared, to be honest.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Potent Munich malt flavors oversee this Dunkel’s flavor profile where nondescript hop bitterness and fieldberry angles attempt to add depth.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam tops the dark brown, leaving no lacing.
-Even though the body is rich, the brew remains quite drinkable.
-An earthy touch seems to come from the combination of specialty malts and bittering hops.
-If you don’t know what Munich malts taste like, this will be a good brew to learn from.
On tap at the tourist magnet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent mahogany with frothy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet, toasty bready dark caramel malt with a touch of Bavarian hops. Body starts with lightly sweet dark caramel maltiness along with decent bittering hop presence and earthiness toward a thinner finish. A pretty decent dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draught at Hofbräuhaus Las Vegas. Dark reddish brown color with a thick and rocky cream colored head. Thin lacing. The aroma is lightly roasty and malty. Medium-bodied and sweet with roasted malt and caramel flavoring. The finish is nutty and lingeringly sweet. A decent beer to accompany a bratwurst.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Poured a deep, clear cola brown with a nice cap of beige head. Nose was very sweet and candy-like with chocolate, caramel, and nuttiness. Flavor was massively sweet, too... with the same notes as the nose. Cola-like mouthfeel and lighter in body. Not bad.

Wrist-breaking litre measure, Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Sweetissh caramelised nose hinting at fresh barrel. Soft, sweet and biscuity with a herbal hop background. Malted Milk, digestives, a dusting of choc. Drinks a bit like a mild 2% weaker. Gentle wood, a hint of almond, oaty malt softness on the palate. Just a chew of raisiny sweet dried fruit and cherry creeping in towards the end. Solid, but a little soporific by the litre.
