50cl bottle @ home, shared with Countbeer, Fonefan and Ove. Brown-red color with a nice deep dark red glow coming through, decent sized off-white to beige head. Smell malts, a little sweet and a slight weird scent. Tastes nicely balanced, malts, lightly sweetish, hints of caramel. Quite decent. Lightly sticky texture. Low carbo, low body.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 Greige, creamy head over well carbonated black beer, foxy shine. Blackcurrant, black chocolate, brown sugar on bread, all fading aroma’s. Dark malts, melanoidine-rich. Lots of restsweetness but balanced by dry-bitterish flavours: woody, slightly hoppy, tannine-like. Whiffs of coffee and cigarette ashes. Dry and sweet at the same time, light to medium body. Very good balance for this Dunkel. Plain but forthright, "quaffable". Kudo’s to these people.
