2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500ml flip-top bottle that gives a big shot when opened. Frothy, dense, beige head with good duration. Dark brown body. Plain grainy smell with some kinds of wormwood. Roasted grain in the flavour followed by dark fruits and a woody touch with underlying sweet malt. Unpleasant notes of wort. To my taste the brew is a bit out of balance (Tromsø, 14.10.2007).

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bügelverschlußflasche: Clear, reddish-amber coloured, small, but firm and lacing off-white head; sweetish-caramelly nose with a touch of toasted malt and cacao-powder, a discreet fruitiness in the background; mild bitter-sweet taste, astonishingly light bodied; delicate caramelly, maybe dryish, finish with a tinge of cacao. Not unpleasant, but a bit thin.........

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, cortesy of MoritzF
Roasted tarry and cardboardy aromanotes. Chestnut, off-white blanket head. Nutty and papery malt base, quite lightfooted, light vineous, dusty minerally. Flat aftertaste. Needs a lot more body and a clearly defined hop-profile IMO.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(swing top bottle) Clear copper colour with a foamy off-white small head. Medium sweet malty nose with milk chocolate and a light hoppy background. Moderately sweet malty taste with a touch of caramel and an upcoming dry bitterness towards the finish. The least impressive brew of the Liebhart collection, but still a clean and drinkable Dunkel.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Clear dark amber colour. Small head. Caramelly, milk-chocolatey ,malt aroma. Roastmalty, chocolatey taste. Quite dry. Ends bitter-chocolatey. But all in all the taste is to bland and watery, and it lacks a bit of carbonation. Not so great.
