2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap on 6/2/08. Had this at the König Ludwig Biergarten just outside of the Hohenschwangau and Neuschwanstein castles. I quote my notes "Another boring dunkel. Nothing offensive about this beer, but I’m writing my notes on it one day after I drank it and I don’t remember anything special about it. Just that it was easy to drink but boring and lacking character."

Rich dark appearance, interestingly crisp and caramelly without being overly brown-sugar-laden. not quite as enjoyable as a bock but a welome and decent beer...

Excellent dunkel overall. Poured a dark brown with a good frothy head. Malty and medium sweetness. Thick and heavy, with a long solid finish. Really liked this dunkel! One of the best i have found in Germany.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Into a tulip, chilled. Russet brown, bright and shimmering with an inch of steady off-white foam atop. Nutty, dusty, lumber and cereal-like nose; minerally with a hefty note of pumpernickel, saw-dust, oat cake and roggenbrot. Bready, nutty on the palate, dry in the back with a solid roasted grain base. Specks of cocoa, roasted almond and peanut, roggenbrot, kelp with light tanninf and a low key hint of rust. Moderate carbonation elevates it; the body medium light and holding as it warms. Well balanced and pleasant. A nice Dunkel. (50cL, BB 20/05/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Una dunkel tedesca in tutti i suoi aspetti. Ottima all’aroma e all’aspetto, perde al palato e al gusto, ma in generale è una buona birra

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2014 Bottle. Pours clear amber with two finger beige head. Aroma is caramel, brown sugar and malty bread. Slight fruity estere. Taste is caramel and malts. Watery mouthfeel, but crisp finish though. Some burnt sugar in the ending too.

This was too sweet for my tastes for a dunkel. It didn’t have much body, could have been more assertive too. I’d drink it if you handed it to me, but I won’t be paying for another.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark translucent red-brown bayer from Bayern. Sweet smell of baking and botany, but a bit too discret and not characteristic enough to get carried away by. The taste contains some soy, a lot of caramel and nutty notes. Not bad! Creamy mouth feel, slightly sticky in an ok way. I like this more than it deserves, if that makes sense.
