2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Röstmalzig und leicht hopfig im Antrunk, im Nachgeschmack wiederum röstmalzig, dazwischen wässrig. Sonst gibt es nicht viel zu entdecken, dieses Bier ist wirklich langweilig.

6- Mashy, but some roast and a touch of husk. Diacetyl too.
4 Rich red, brief head.
6- Very simple. Mashy, grainy, and again some bitterness.
4- Full smooth palate. Finish has some choco, but also some dry noble hops and husks. Definitely better after swallowing.
12 In the end, it’s quite a full and tasty beer. Particularly like the finish.

500ml bottle from landbierdealer.de!
The beer in glass is reddish brown, copper-like, with good, mid-cut, durable and fine creamy head. Smells sweet malty, subtle bready. The beer starts very sweet, malty, roasty and extremely pleasant bready. The aftertaste is also long drawn bready, with some grain coming through, coupled with a subtle roasted notes. In the middle part, some hoppy notes come through, but the finish is again very dominant bready and grainy-sweet. Overall a good, pleasant and full-flavored Dunkles!

(bottle) Clear, amber to copper colour with a big but non persistent light-beige foamy head. Slightly sweet toast-malty aroma with notes of caramel and chocolate. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a pleasant carbonation. Solid toasty malt-character with caramel, a whiff of cacao and herbal accents; almost dry moderately toasty and hop bitter finish. Good one. 30.XI.10
