3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2004 Beer of the month in a pub in Hengelo. From tap. Deep dark, red brown color. Sweet, malty taste with lots of caramel and coffee. Just a hint of sourness. Light but long-lasting hopbitter finish. Thin bodied and dangerously drinkable. Delicious beer, highly recommended as a summer beer. Re-rate Hotel Schmittbräu in Waldmünchen. Tap. Caramel aroma and flavor. Thin, sweetish, sugary, malty and o, so smooth... Love it!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Leicht malziger Antrunk, schnell künstlich süß werdend. Pennetrant, künstlich, etwas herb. Etwas chemisch, schlecht trinkbar. Nix für mich...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at The Kolkovna, Prague, Pasteurised, 500ml. Dark brown with malty cream head. The ubiquitous Kozel dark can be found at any of the hundreds of Pilsner Urquell bars around Prague, I have to say that Sandra loves this beer, but I find it much too sweet for me, there is licorice in there and a certain fruitiness, but really the sweetness is overwhelming.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep reddy brown, bready head. Smell is a bit metallic. Quite watery palate, but a decent enough burnt maltiness to it. Very restrained hops. A little sweet, but some samples we’ve had have been very sweet - quality control’s not their strong point. Quite drinkable, but not very exciting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, creamy tanned head, slowly diminishing to a small stable foamy layer; sweet-malty, toasted-malty nose; sweet-caramelly flavour, light bodied, soft MF; toasted, caramelly finish with a small chocolatey bitterness in the end. Hearty, easily drinkable Dunkel, a bit on the sweet side....

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, ruby brown colour with a medium-sized tanned foamy head. Toasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, dark bread and a delicately hoppy touch. Moderately sweet and slightly roast-bitter flavour, light bodied but not watery with a smooth carbonation. Toasty malty taste with caramel, bread crusts and dark chocolate; dry-ish, roasty bitter finish with a subtle doughy acidity. Pleasant and rounded. 07.VI.10

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.
