Dark brown body with a decent tan head. Nutty ,coffee and caramel. Average carbo. Well balanced and quite drinkable .One of the best quality /price ratio beers that I’ve drunk in Germany and my best Dunkel/Tmavý so far.

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....

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong roasted malt flavours with long-lasting and slightly dry hop after taste. Decent body, if a bit light. A relatively flavourful and refreshing interpretation of the style.

Malty, coffee aroma. Was a cheap bottle of beer that I never had before, won’t go out of my way to seek it out, but I would certainly not put up a fight if it was put in front of me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very dark, small frothy head, faint toffee aroma. Dusty sweet toffee flavour, a bit short and a medium body although it’s a bit on the light side. By the end I found it overly sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a reddish brown with a quick head. Aromas of malt, nutiness, sweet. The taste is straightforward but drinkable nonetheless with notes of malt and caramel with a mild carbonation and mild to medium sweetness throughout.
