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....

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.

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.
