3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with a nice tan head that dissipated fairly slowly. Not a lot of aroma coming out of the glass, but some smells of dark malt and slight brown sugar. Medium bodied with nice malty flavors and some dark fruits popping in, finishing with a little hop bite. True to the German dunkel style with the exception of being slightly hoppier.
Overall a very nice dunkel and very drinkable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mahogany hued dark beer with a foamy biege head that left nice lacing. Sweet malt syrup nose with some puffed wheat and something vaguely tart. Toffee sweet with some caramel corn, funky fruit and an odd sour tanginess to it that I don’t prefer.

Thanks to Dave. 12 oz. bottle. Appearance-Murky brown color, medium tan head Aroma- Papery cardboard overwhelms other aromas, some roast and sweetness. Taste-Raisins, roast, dry but mildly bitter finish. Papery aroma persists through taste. Medium mouthfeel. Overall- Could be a nice beer but off aroma is a bit distracting.
