Nice deep copper color. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, spices, and hops with a somewhat earthy undertone. Flavor is mostly caramel and biscut with spices, raisin, and hints of chocolate. Slight tartness at the end that hangs, mild carbonation, easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from GBBF 2014 and drunk at home. Black beer with lasting dark beige head. Chocolate dunkel lager aroma. Tasty as hell. Tasty fresh some milky chocolate with a fresh lager hop finish. It’s a pleasingly tasty dunkel. Not a huge depth, but the flavours work well. The hops are quite dominant especially on the finish, more so than you would get on a typical German dunkel. It’s good though. Very drinkable and yet very interesting and has layers of flavour at the same time. I liked it very much.
