Vom fass, at the Paulaner pub down by the Weser in Bremen. Dave says, ’sweet tarmac nose’. Sprinkle of Dry Roasted. Watery Westy nuts n’ choc, hazelnut and cookieish softness creeping in at the end. Liquorice? Gentle, but good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 500ml. A clear brown colour with a good head. A malty aroma. Taste is burnt malt (tastes very much like raw, dark malted barley) with a slight underlying hoppiness which adds a hint of citrus to lighten the brew up a little. Light carbonation. Doesn’t seem much like a dunkel, but a nice brew anyhow.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The bottle looks really good, better than the other Paulaner-bottles. The beer in the glass also. Flavor very strong in the beginning, in the end much too malty - nasty!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cL bottle, as Paulaner hefe weissbier dunkel. Pours hazy brown with a dense white head. Mild malty and wheaty/fruity aroma. Classic wheat flavour swept in a nice bed of caramel malt flavours which take out most of the banana and bubblegum notes. Ends with a mild malt lingering flavour.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
0.5L draft at a small little restaurant in Munich. Delicious brew – strong banana/bubblegum/clove esters that you seek in a quality Dunkel. Excellent sweet malty notes and a nice finish. The beer just rolls across your palate and delights along the way. Fabulous. I wish that this was available on draft in the USA.
