2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This Dunkel poured a dark amber colour with a tan coloured, foamy head. Tot eh nose there are scents of caramel, ripe fruit, a little cocoa and rich malt. First sip had a slightly watery mouthfeel but rich in flavours of ripe fruit, light caramel and vermouth. Finish was slightly bitter with very distant hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle pours an amber brown color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark fruits (perhaps raisin or date) with some chocolate notes. Taste is a chocolate and fruity sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. Light in body for the style and typical carbonation. A little on the thin side for my liking.

Bottle - has a weak cola brown look to it and a malty caramel aroma and taste. Weak finish. It’s the only beer I have access to at 2 AM and it’s better than nothing!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from the liquor store on PEI
Pours a crystal clear dark brown with ruby at the edges and a wispy off white head that dissipates quickly. Butter caramel and toffee dominate the aroma, with traces of dish soap. I find no weizen or hops in the aroma of this brew. The flavor isn’t much better than the aroma. Buttery burnt caramel with a soapy edge. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. I’m not sure what they were shooting for here, but its safe to say they missed.

Pours a very cloudy dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. I get almost no smell off this beer, even though it had a nice head on it. Taste was pretty sweet, and had some graininess to it

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Everybody is hating on this pretty harshly but I thought it was alright. Cloudy, 70% cocoa brown with a thin foamy skull. Aroma is lights citrus, chocolate malts and some dank fruits. Sort of molasses, banana and berries with resin hops and sweet nutty malts. I wish the feel was thicker, it would have made it for me.

Bottle. Not my favourite offering by Picaroons, but quite interesting. It has an aroma of fruits and nuts. Tastes of fruits and raisin and little wheaty, but then I feel half way through the sip the liquid separates from the flavour and you get a really watery finish. Strange feeling. Not bad or anything, but far from buying it again.

Pas un succès mais rien de désagréable... Ça manque de malt un peu mais j’aime bien le goût de banane et de fumée.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Originally rated December 2009. Bought this one in Edmonston, N.B. when I was on tour with my band. This German-style Dunkel has a huge head that is beige, very creamy, excellent retention and thick and wavy lacing. This is also a hybrid with a traditional English ale so its colour is a dark amber with little bubble carbonation. It becomes hazy when the whole bottle is poured, and ruby highlights show. The aroma is mild with a touch of hop. The malt is very well-hidden with notes of yeast and chocolat. Smooth mouthfeel without stickiness. In the taste, I get some sourness that I am not sure if it is suppose to be there, or if this one outdated. I have seen other reviews talking about this too. Other than that, I do not taste much else. Maybe just disgusted with the infection of this brew. A nice mix of two great styles, but lacking in flavours... and wish I could of had a fresh one.
