2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. Pours dark caramel brown w/medium head. Aroma is hoppy and malty as is taste. Surprisingly hoppy really for a german beer. I don’t know if the flavor combination works, I don’t think I’d want another.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught, at Lemkes Spezialitätenbrauerei, Berlin, on 26th September 2009. Russet red with off-white vanishing head of foam. Some rich malt aromas of biscuit/cookie initially, followed by a highly flavoursome, delicately balanced "focus" of flavour in which a grassy hop is met and matched by a rich cookie malt. The result is a full-spectrum very tasty beer on a zingy, tongue-tickling mouthfeel. This beer stood up very well to the meal of sausage, sauerkraut and German mustard that accompanied it - great stuff!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Lacy and pillowy beige head on copper-brown beer. Light toasted malt aroma, grassy with a touch of caramel. Sharp and fairly clean bitterness. Roasty aromatics are very subtle and add nice character to a refreshing beer. Dry with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Addictive stuff... a Dunkel that drinks sort of like an Altbier.

On tap at the brauhaus in Berlin. Pours dark amber in color with a frothy beige head. Smells of malt and craisins (house flavor?). Unfortunately shallow in flavor with a timid note of toffee. Meh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut body, off white head; Quite intense very chocolate roasted nose, not really complex very straight forward pleasant; Soft thin texture with roasted bitterness, slightly sweet, quite pleasant; Long finish with full roasted chocolate aroma and quite thin texture. Interesting beer, very drinkable, the pilsner like body mixed with all the roast is very nice.
