3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from trade with Maria. A dense, two-finger head forms on top of a clear, chestnut colored body. Lacings. Sugary dried fruits at first in the aroma, then there’s some dms chiming in. Nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and in the end, but at first it’s a bit harmed by the dms flavor. A bit thin on the palate, quite dry. Light metallic in the finish. A decent and drinkable beer indeed, but the level of dms is too high for my likings. 110722

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sehr milder Antrunk, in dem eine träge Süße auf eine milde Metallnote trifft. Anschließend wird das Bier dunkler, die Metallnote drängt aber weiter in den Vordegrund. Dem Malz belibt nur die Angleichung an das Aroma, um es zu integrieren. Bitterer und malziger Abgang, in dem die Metallnote zum ersten Mal verborgen werden kann. 9/7/8/8//7

Bottled 500ml ABV 5.1% (BZ, BB 08/2011)
Dark nut brown color, small steady off-white head. Dry nutty malty aroma, some caramel, maybe even a bit cardboardish. Medium-bodied. Dry, nutty malty flavor with hoppy bitterness in the finish. Bitter aftertaste. Just "OK".

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear deep brown colour, mid-sized off-white head. Earthy, flavours of caramel, chocolate, raisins. Quite hoppy for a Dunkel, resiny-grassy and, again, earthy. A very interesting and good beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is fresh wet earth, toffee, herbal and floral hop spice, wood (forest fire? Srsly...). Flavor is quite spicy - bordering on harsh, really grainy (even cinnamon? Something sharp to add to the dark bread, spiced nuttiness, pepper, flowers and slightly burnt sugar...). Challenging and I love this take. Mysteriously still in the glass with the tiniest wisps of head, yet lively. An unusual dunkel.
