3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet, roasted. The alcohol comes in surprisingly hard. Actually it is quite strong for a dunkel. Not far from some mildest dunkler bocks, yet a bit thinner. Nice smooth mouthfeel like other Lowenbräu’s I’ve had.

Bottle, 5.5%. Roasted aroma, slightly metallic. Clear dark brown colour. Small, semi-stable light brown head. The flavour is roasted and clean. Late aftertaste, weak, but nicely roasted. Quite nice for a standard dunkel.

Dark-malty taste with chocolate and shy notes of caramel; medium bodied, crispy carbonation; moderately dry malty, light-bitter finish with shy notes of herbal hops. Not bad, a bit mediocre.
