3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Best of the Krautheimer beers I had until now. Caramel, light smoked, light hoppy aroma. Brown color, beige head, fair lace. Smokey, light sweet, caramel. Rather light for a dunkel. Long lasting hop and caramel aroma.

bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear chestnut-brown colour, large off-white head. Malty base with hints of caramel, chocolate, plums and raisins, slightly fruity, with grassy-earthy hops. Well-rounded, a real pleasure.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear, deep brown colored body with a nice reddish hue. Inch thick, creamy, light tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is lightly sweetened malts with some bready caramel notes, a light roast, and some dark fruit touches. Flavor is similar. A bit more of a roast note throughout with a nice, clean malt sweetness. Some caramel, bread, a few dark fruit hints, and a light bitterness. Finishes clean and a touch roasty with a nice sweetness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light, smooth body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid dunkel. Clean and lightly sweetened malts with a balanced roast presence. Good one.

(bottle) Clear, amber colour with a medium-sized beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty, almost a bit Bock-like aroma with hearty notes of caramel and traces of sugar beet. Sweet flavour, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Dark and toasted malty taste with caramel; medium-dry, sweet and slightly bitter toasted finish. Decent quality Dunkel (22.07.08).

Clear amber color, small off-white head. Grassy, woody malty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Caramel malty backbone, soft palate in the middle then some late maltyness. Sweetish dunkel, as such not bad.

Bottle. Dark chocolate malt aroma - noticeable tannic aroma. Dark tan color - clear with next to no head. Burnt malt and caramel flavor - on the watery side. Nice taste but on the weak side.
