3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
After drinking lots of hops dominated beers this one was a huge malty surprise. Quaffy, malty, full bodied, easy to go. Some nuts and caramel in the background. But this does not matter as malt wins it all. Good one.

Bottle. Dark amber colour with a big tan head. Pissoir aroma and a malty, light grainy taste. Medium body with a light dry finish. This is the most horibal aroma ever for a beer, or a pissoir.

Bottle looks simple, but good. Beer surprisingly dark, the name was "Lager". Also tastes more like a Dunkel than like a Lager. Starts malty and dry, not too much, not too sweet. Well balanced finish, malty-dry, some notes of caramel. Great beer!

Bottle from derdopplebock? Pours amber brown, looks like a brown ale, very nice. Aroma is nutty, balanced with peppery hop. Taste is a similar bag with hints of toffee and lemon, exstremly well balanced and drinkable.

Bottle@Pilsbar Franco, Erlangen. Dark for a lager, sort of a pale mahogany. Lightly perfumy aroma, with some pigfarm aromas. Nutty malts and also quite fruity ( i was having a tough time pinning this down). Lovely earthy hops, slightly grassy. Very nice drinking. Maybe it was because i was a little thirsty, but this was really pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Pappenheimer Wirtschaft, Hamburg: 11th Dec 2014. Clear brown body with a lasting white head that gave impressive lacing. Malty and sweet in both the nose and taste. A very nice Dunkel, if like me you prefer the sweeter versions of the style. Uncomplicated and decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ahh, memories from two years ago...Bottle. Aroma of nut, dark malts, and dark chocolate with a little barnyark funk / veggies...touch of bread and popcorn. Dark nut brown / dark copper pour with a sticky, lacing beige head. Creamy crisp taste with all of the above included. Toasted nutty choco veggie. Light flowery sweetness balanced by hops. Mild, with light end-bitterness. Nice and malty, nice and rural.
