2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Clear, chestnut-brown colour with a big and tanned foamy head. Doughy malty, minimally toasted aroma with shy traces of caramel and hops. Slightly sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Doughy and shy bready malty taste with hints of caramel far in the background; slightly sweet and dark malty finish with illusions of hops. Disappointing Dunkel. 18.XII.10

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled 50cl. It pours a clear deep copper brown beer with a bubbly head. Malty nose with caramel, raisin, marshmallows and slight pumpernickel showing up. The taste is boring. Malt accented. Walnuts in the finish. Mediocre.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
( Bottle, 0,5 Litres ) Brownly clear-dark colour, nice head, oscillates between sourly and coffee-like approaches, anyhow surprisingly well-balanced. Worth a try at any rate ! --- 06.09.04

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Reddish brown, with a very small head. Slightly smoked malty notes, dry but not very bitter. Lots of CO2. Technically quite well-done, but in a rather clinical, boring way. 180505

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
clear ruby-brown colour, little firm head, aroma of vegetables with a touch of caramel, sweet and medium-bodied, dry and slightly bitter finish - very modest; I should have give this bottle to fiulijn and keep the good one for me :-)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber color. The aroma is sweet-malty. The taste as well is sweet, malty, a lot of caramel. In the end a stronger character of roasted malt balances it a bit more. The resulting final is quite bitter.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown color. Malty and fruity aroma. Malty, light sweet taste, light fruity cherry notes. Only very few roasted notes. Quite astringent aftertaste, light bitter. Quite o.k., unusual Dunkles.
