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’.

3.2 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.
