Bottle from Erlangernick, thanks my friend, Prost! Clear dark brown cola coloured, lasting tan head. Tasty dark beer, some good dark malts, some light chocolate. It’s a decent dunkel, nothing over the top or with particular character, and nothing wrong with it either. A little dark malt character. Decent.

_angst_ (4466) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle @ Haket. Slow gusher which caught me off-guard. Pours hazy deep reddish brown with a huge frothy goldenish offwhite head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is rustic, malty and floral with toasted malts, dark bread, crispbread, toasted oatmeal, hay, dried flowers, minerals, liquorice hard candy, walnut skins and hints of lemon peal. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly bitter, heavy malty and floral. Mouthfeel is fat, soft, round, slightly sparkling and medium to full bodied. Finish is tiny sweet and tiny bitter with toasted malts, rustic dark bread, toasted oatmeal, hay, minerals, hazelnuts, lemon peal and hints of bread spices and rye. Amazing fat malt profile with suiting supporting floral hops. Slightly over-carbonated which is a pity but this is really good!

Icedwarf (1219) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2015
Zwart bier met veel schuim. Gedronken van het vat in de brauereigaststätte. Smaak is bitter en kruidig met iets van caramel en chokolade. Erg goed bier.

jonas (6698) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2015
Tap. Metallic roast aroma. Cloudy brown, low offwhite head. Mellow chewy roast aroma, light bready, ok balance, herbal finish, not super interesting.

Marheb (4769) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
(Bue sur place): Un pains aux raisins qui aurait bénéficié d’un séjour dans le grille-pain. Belle rondeur avec une touche minérale mais rien qui va se graver dans ma mémoire.

MartinT (9267) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Mineral angles are found around this Dunkel’s raisiny malts, leading to herbal hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the misty pale brown.
-Balance is achieved.
-Carbonation is soft.
-This is far from reaching the level of refinement found at Gradl or Held nearby.

On tap at the brewpub.
