Light roasty chocolate aroma, also slightly metallic. Pours super dark brown with a small tan head. Flavor is roasty, slightly sweet malt with a light bitterness in the finish. Clean crisp finish. Light with mild carbonation.

I believe this is my first dunkel, so I really do not know what to compare it to. Very German/import aroma hard to describe. Appearance is really cool, dark with a very contrasting white head. Flavor, taste, palate once again difficult to describe, but interesting. Kind of tastes like beef broth. A neat expirience.

Bottle. Poured with a finger high light brown head. Smells of burnt malt and a slightly of coffee. Very dark beer, with some red hues on the border of the glass. Head dissipated rather quickly. Taste is a little bland, in my opinion, with literally no aftertaste.

Dark in appearance, this brew seemed a bit watered down compared to other darks. The taste was of coffee and chocolate, but muted. It’s a pretty good brew, but not full bodied enough for my taste.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bolled brew with a flippy top poured a medium sized light brown colored frothy head of mostly lasting bubbles that left behind an opaque dark brown colored body with no visible carbonation and a fair lacing. The aroma was mild with malty notes and the mouth feel was mildly tingly and faded in the finish. It had a mild malt flavor with a mild hoppiness that came out in the aftertaste.

A very dark brown with a medium foamy tan head. Dark malts, mostly coffee dry/bitterness, some milk chocolate, not a much hops present. Like a very watery porter, still a really nice smooth flavor though. Some woodiness. Body is medium flat. Very dark dunkel.

500 ml, undated but probably not as fresh as I’d like. I got a good pop when opening this one. Translucent very dark brown with beige head. Not a lot of aroma: smells lager-ish with some cocoa. Body is a bit too thin with assertive fine bubbles. Taste is balanced between malt and hops. It’s not really as roasty as I would have thought. Slightly bitter with a dry finish. Very drinkable, but for the imported price.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep copper in color with a small off-white ehad. Faint hops and malt aroma. Flavor is of toasted/roasted malt, hoppy, sweet malty start moving into a dry finish.
