3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with an orange tint and a nice tan head. Rich caramel malt aroma, with chocolate and a touch of fruit. Rich, malty flavor, a bit of roasting and a bit of metal, wood, and cardboard. Caramel, chocolate, raisins. Nicely bitter finish is a pleasant surprise. A bit light on the palate. Not perfect, but a decent dunkel for sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml. bottle. Dark colour, a little head that doesn’t hold for too long. Arome of sweet malts, licorice, chocolate, sweet mal coffee. The body could be much stronger, though it has a kind of inky flavor. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, some dark fruits. Good one.
