Bottle: Amber coloured, mid-sized, stable off-white head with a little lace; moderate caramelly and roasted malty nose with a faint illusion of coffee and dried fruits; moderate to robust sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; sweet caramelly finish with a discreet fruitiness. a nice example of this style, a bit like a perfectly diluted Doppelbock..........

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark coca-cola colored, little yellow head. Rich aroma with sweet roastiness and some nutty caramel. Medium bodied. Flavor is also nicely sweet with chocolate and toffee, aftertaste dries mildly. This nutty touch reminds me of some German doppelbocks. Crispy palate, surprisingly good dunkel.

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.
