2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s not really there. It’s sort of a gost. Theres no aroma that I can discern whatsoever. It’s brownish but very boring to look at. It’s very smooth and even, a nice sweet end with some coffee and toffee touches, but oh so subtle. This is a sessionable darker beer, but nothing too special. This really comes back at you later, this particular bottle is nearing the end date. would be better fresh. Though I just learned it’s retired....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours clear dark brown. Thick light brown head low retention. Very sweet malty aroma with notes of candy and dark fruits. Nice flavour. Malty and rich with a distinct flavour of Vienna malt. Suprisingly complex. This is a great dunkle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, thanks to TheHulk. Pours cola brown, thin off-white head, spotty to poor lacing. Nose is rootbeer, red licorice, vague toffee/chocolate. Flavours of cocoa, rootbeer/sarsparilla, light roast, caramel, medium to long sweet finish with hints of sweet yam and red licorice. Not a showstopper, but a hell of a little Dunkel. Exceedingly pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle from beershop.hr, shared with Doggythedog. Now I see it’s retired so great thing I got my hands on it! It poured brown body with medium to bigger head. Nice caramel and chocolate aroma. Slightly roasted malty flavor, well coffee obviously some caramel but with greatly balanced bitterness and generally more sweet, exactly like a dunkel should be. Fuller in body and even cloying. Finish was longer sweet caramelly and sugary. Really a nice dunkel!
