3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Caramelly with some dough in the nose. Also, strong notes of toffee and roasted malt. Poured chestnut with a pillowy beige head and great lacing. Sweet and malty flavor, not at all bitter, similar to the wonderful aroma but unfortunately, not nearly as strong. Mild. Well-made and easy-drinking. I’ll have another, please.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker copper coloured with a small tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, some caramalised sugars, a bit of pit fruit and a fragrant nuttiness. Medium-bodied; Mild malt flavour throughout with a subtle hint at those pit fruits with more of a stronger taste with the nuts. Aftertaste lasts long in the palate with some of the bittering agents dropping in longer. Overall, a decent dunkel, nothing superlative, but great to try! I sampled this on draught on 07-June-2004 in Sydney, Australia at the Lowenbrau Restaurant on ’The Rocks’.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Surprisingly refreshing dark beer with a small head but a fine malty aroma reminding me of some nuts and caramel. Tastes very light and easy, something sometimes unusual for a darker beer.
