COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The nose will enjoy pepper and gentle roasting aromas such as cocoa and bitter chocolate. After a crisp initial taste, the malt releases more gentle avours. The texture is dry. A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the nale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

Draught at the brewpub. Chestnut brown with a fluffy white head. dry taste on the palate. More like an English ale than a dunkel beer. Ok

Maverick34 (2954) - New York, USA - APR 4, 2007
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.

heavy (2750) - Split, CROATIA - MAR 26, 2010
06/03 Draught at the brewpub. It poured reddish to brown body with medium sized head. Strange malty nose, some smoked meat. Boring sweetish flavor made up from bit of coffee, somewhat caramel and hint of wood. Medium body, but it had long, sweet caramelly finish. Fine, ordinary and pretty boring dunkel, so typical. Unlike my friend, I found this Lemke beer to be least satisfying.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Clear dark/red colour with a nice creamy head. Light aroma of malt and some touch of roastedness. Light flavour of roastedness, chocolate and quite fruity. Nothing overwelming but okey.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - OCT 13, 2004
Draught at Lemkes Spezialitätenbrauerei, Berlin.
Hazy amber/orange beer with a fine white head. Sweet caramelly and fruity aroma with orange tones. Mostly sweet malty and fruity in the flavor. Flower and nut tones also. Good for Berlin brewpub standards!
