Nice looking 500ml bottle and label. Creamy, beige head over an appealing deep mahogany and scarlet gown. Dark malty aroma. Watery. Medium bodied. Brittle caramel flavour with grainy notes. More sweetness and some yeastiness in the finish. Becomes far too sweet half way through the glass.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice dark, thanks to Radek bought in Poland. Wine brandy colour, bit of lace. Licorice, bit sour, despite malting including caramel. Tad chocolate malt as well. Bit of roast. Not complex, easy drink. A particular dunkel style, OK but not that I seek out.

(Tap) An OK sweet flavored dunkel. At times, it was almost too sweet for my liking. Caramel and toffee notes. Brown body, with beige head. A little unbalanced, but tasty if you like a sweeter beer.

This is an excellent dunkel and session beer. The beer is dark brown and has a very thick head. Aroma has malt and carmel, as well as fruit. Sweet flavor that includes more malt and carmel. Lightly hopped. Outstanding palate. Smooth and exceptionally easy to drink.
