3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It’s rather hazy, dark mahogany-red with a small, creamy head, and the aroma has notes of caramel, nuts, roasted malt, light cocoa and straw. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, straw, cocoa and licorice, and the finish is dry and slightly bitter – it’s a delicious dunkel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Biggish, fine off-white head, dark brown-yellow cloudy body. (Not sure about the colour; it was dark, and the light at the brewery was yellow.) Sweet, toffee-like aroma. Big sweet toffee/licorice taste, with slightly hoppy aftertaste. Complex taste. Aftertaste lingers. A very interesting beer, somewhat heavy by German standards. (0.5l mug on tap at the brewery pub.)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ brewpub. Milky opaque dark brown with stable head. The aroma is not popping, has some sourness. The palate is soft and has nice low carbonation that makes it very drinkable. The beer is very tasty, as wood fired dark bread crust.
