2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium brown.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, nuts, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of metal, honey, and grape juice.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation.
Meh. Light and watery and a bit sour. It does have that honeyish-bready German malt character that almost makes me smile, but outside of that it’s pretty clumsy and thus hard to get enthused about. Barely even average.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Forgettable. Pours a nice amber color. Smells like smoky cigar and molasses. Taste however is pretty empty and bland. Nothing really to note about the flavor. Had in the bottle.

22 sept 2013, bottle. Brown, clear, no bubbles. Nose is yeasty bread. Med body and mildly fizzy. Tastes like organic wheat bread; doughy, Light raisins, maybe faint nuttiness. Nice. I don't typically like dunkles but this is pretty good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had the organic version. Strong, crisp, malty aroma has a fruity underpinning. Pours a clear, bubbly caramel brown with a fairly thick, though not persistent, buff head. Malty, slightly fruity is pleasant if not complex or remarkable. Texture seems rather thin and lacks fizz. Average, but still potable. Good with a meal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured clear amber brown with a weak head.
Aroma had more sweet caramel malt than medium roast malt, but this is reversed in tasting. Lightly sweet flavor suggests dark bread baked with some brown sugar.
Medium body with spot on carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. LIghtly hazed dull chestnut brown with a short-lived tan head. Malt-focused nose of caramel / toffee, yeast powder, filberts, almond butter, sour cola and potato starch with minute amounts of cooked cabbage and turnip (DMS). Light body with creamy and soft texture, a bit chalky / powdery from the yeast. Lacks flaws but is very basic, especially the nut and caramel syrup malt flavor. Low sweetness, medium to low acid, low bitterness.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Nose of straw and malt. Taste of nuts, caramel, malt, leaves, woods, hops and torf. Easy to drink with a very flat body with very low carbonation. Quaffable and nice.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Schönes, klassisches Dunkel. Beginnt recht simpel mit malzigen Klängen und etwas Süße. In der Mitte einige Nußaromen und eine gewisse Schwere. Zum Abschluss hin noch etwas dicker und schwerer - leider ohne ein trockenes Ende. Eher im Gegenteil angesiedelt. Dennoch recht süffig und einfach klassisch gut.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Botted. Aroma of Sweet Malt and Caramel. Pour dark golden brown with a head that disappears very fast. Taste Malt, Caramel, toasted nuts and mild biscuit. This is a nice Dunkel very traditional and you can tell they are following the tradition of Bavarian beers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle. Deep ruby body, light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is more caramelly than the aroma suggests and has dark fruit and toast notes. The finish is a bit hoppy. Medium-full body, oily texture. Nice one!
