On tap in Regensburg. Suitably banal to match the Eurovision 2009 performances we were watching while drinking it. Meh.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
This admirable Dunkel proposes toasted malts upon earthy, leafy hops in a soft and drinkable mouthfeel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam garnishes the reddish dark brown.
-The mouthfeel is appropriately lean while leaving just enough sugars for the teeth to sink into.
-Hop bitterness is mild.
-This somehow provided as much malt flavor as their richer Bock.

On tap at the brewpub.

jjsint (926) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle from Bacchinalia, Cambridge. Consumed at home. Chocolate/cola brown, little head, plentiful carbonation. Chocolate, caramel, mulled spice and malt on the nose. Taste is sweet without being cloying; however, it doesn’t seem to have a lot of depth... fades to a medium short finish. Malty caramel aftertaste. This is a by-the-numbers dunkel: you can’t fault it, but it fails to inspire.

(Flasche) Es hat eine dunkelbraune, fast undurchsichtige Farbe, scheint filtriert mit einer bräunlichen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist malzig, sirupartig und mit dunklen Früchten. Der Geschmack ist langweilig, sonst wie das Aroma. Bittere gibt es nicht und die Karbonisierung ist OK.
