2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, chestnut colour with a slightly off-white foamy medium-sized head. Medium-sweet toasty, slightly bready malty aroma with notes of caramel, chocolate and marzipan. Moderately bitter, slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a for some parts fizzy, almost sharp carbonation. Toast-malty taste, light notes of caramel with herbal hops; dry, toast-malty, moderately bitter finish with notes of chocolate in the aftertaste. Okay, but not overly pleasant.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 5.2% as Landwehr-Bräu Dunkel. Weak aroma, a little sewery. Clear dark brown colour. Small head. The flavour is quite mild, not that malty. Like a pale lager with a little dark malts at the end. Solid, but not exciting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Better than the Toppler Pils. More depth of flavor with the expected maltiness: caramel and coffee. A little thin but not a bad beer at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A Mes rate: 50cl bottle from Quinns. Sweetish milk chocolate with a slight hoppy bitterness. Slightly roasty and almost smokey. Clean mouthfeel. Just nothing that I can get excited about.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought at the brewery, just named "dunkel". ABV is the same. malt and milk chocolate in the aroma. Thinnish but flavorful. Malt, cake dough, roasted malt, milk chocolate. More body and this dunkel would be world class. Now it is just a good beer.

Not sure what makes this a Landbier, but it is a good dunkles. Toast in the nose, clear brown color, and a sticky foamy head. A little caramell in the flavor with a light roasted almost smoke finihs. Clean palate after the swallow and a good balance.
