3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber brown, looking not too disimilar to a Bitter, minimal head retention. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, molasses and slightly nutty berry type notes. Taste is definitely sweet, mild bitterness but also slightly astringent. Slightly cloying and sticky in the mouth but the carbonation levels that out nicely. Overall a decent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Der Gewinner eines Abend ! Und dabei war ich mir sicher, ein Dunkles koennte das gar nicht mehr. Mitnichten. Die Malzigkeit ist bis zum Ende hin ausgepraegt und ausgereift - und das ohne ins eklig suesse und billige anzugleiten. Daneben noch ein paar Nuese, etwas Am Brotigkeit und wundervolle Trinkbarkeit. Daumen hoch !

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle pours with a clear amber body the has some deep red hues and supports a thin tan head of foam. The aroma offers up lots of caramel covered dark bread as well as some light fig and prune notes. The taste is a little thick and a little on the sweet side but not too bad. I get caramel malts, fig and date like sweet dark fruity esters as well as molasses and a mineral sensation. Tasty Dunk!
