3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass quite dark, not black. Very smoky aroma. Starts also smoky-malty, earthy, a bit like plum. Goes down soft as velvet. Aroma very nice till the end. Unusual, but good!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle, with thanks to Quack-Duck) Clear, dark brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Moderately sweet and toasty nose with caramel and a touch of cacao-powder. Medium-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, soft on carbon. Slightly roasty malty taste with light impressions of burnt caramel; quite dry, light-sweet finish with a balancing burnt and hoppy bitterness. Solid Dunkel.

Bottle (Danke, Quack-Duck !): Chestnut-amber coloured, quite stable off-white head, sticking to the glass; caramelly, roastmalty nose with a faint metallic touch; moderate sweet-bitter flavour; becomes drier towards the roast-malty, caramelly finish. Well done......
