Tap. Toffee malt, sour milk malt and hay hops aroma. Cloudy orange-brown color with small head. Sweet orange-caramel malt and moderately bitter fresh hay/grass hops flavor. Excellent - a dunkel that is fruity and hoppy.

Very nice offering. I like it because I have never tasted anything like it. For starters, the initial rich bitter dark chocolate, and hints of cereal and alcohol, appearance is dark brown red hue, nice color. Taste is of bitter dark chocolate, bready, malty, toffee, roasting grain, a tiny bit of hops, wheat at the end with a wheat, malt, toffee palate left over, but nice. Overall, very nice, has a unique character. Try on if youre ever in the SW area of Germany.

The last of my reviews on out of date beers from this brewery. All 3 of their beers (including this one) are 5.2%.
Brown flip-top half litre bottle should have been drank before 20th Aug 2007, it was drunk today, 12th Sept 2007.
Poured into my old half litre Schultheiss glass from Berlin.
Great ruby red colour, the huge head of biege bubbles was so large I couldn’t get all the beer into my glass. The beer was not cloudy by any means but it wasn’t crystal clear either.
The aroma was of half burnt chocolate malts and yeast.
It tastes like an Dusseldorfer Alt more than a lager to me, the label gives no hint. I like it, whatever the true style is. The burntness in the aroma isn’t in the taste, dry caramel without the sweetness is what I pick up.
The mouthfeel is good, the beer and mouth goes dry, then more dry as you make your body wait for the next mouthful.
A very nice beer, this little brewery will be getting another visit from me.
