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.

3.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The DM & Hotstuff’s European Honeymoon trip beer number 69. This draft brew from the brewery in Germany poured a medium sized foamy head of finely sized off-white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a carbonated transparent dark brown colored body. The aroma contained notes of very mild malts. The mouth feel was smooth thick and malty with a mild tingle in the finish. The flavor contained good notes of sweet semi-thick good malts and had a mild kick to it.
