3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Enjoyed from a 500ml bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a medium to slightly dark brown color, with an initially frothy off-tan head. The nose shows assertive Munich malt character. The palate shows a fairly aggressive carbonation level at first, before more Munich character. Flavors then trail off, rather abruptly; still a light Munich note, but an otherwise dry and fairly crisp ending. Mouthfeel is fine. The general character of the beer seems to tend toward quaffability, with a generous malt presence throughout. Overall, perhaps not on the level of an Ayinger Dunkle, but a solid example of the style, and quite enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A darker than pale ale beer, perhaps dark iced tea. No head and it smells a little like old lager. Perhaps not as smooth as it could be, does need some manners if it wants to be a dunkel or even a dark lager. Pretty good sizzle but A little rude-ish at times. However, tries not to go over the top. Finish medium mild old lager. Not real excited about this one. Giving this a ten overall is playing sanny claus.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Mein absolutes Lieblingsbier. Schöne dunkle Farbe mit krönend, feinem Schaum und tolle Röstaromen von getoastetem Brot und frisch gemahlenen Kaffeebohnen. Bei richtiger temperatur genossen ein absolut erfrischendes Erlebnis durch perfekt eingestellte Kohlensäure. Der frische Geschmack von süßem Gras und dunkler Steinfrucht untermalen den dunklen Charakter. Schlanker Körper und absolut drinkable. Man will immer noch eins.

Bottle, danke Günther. Beautiful chestut colour with brown froth. Berrylike (blueberries, raspberries), spicy (enebær) and roasted grain aroma. Chewy medium body, soft bready mouthfeel, light sparkles. Fresh fruity base, good malt bottom, aromatics retronasal. Quick berry finish. really very very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The color of this beer is cloudy deep copper with a large off-white head that fades to a thin layer on top, and the aroma combines the scents of sweet bread malts, slight clove, and a hint of soured fruit. The taste is quite sour and slightly sweet, and the palate combines a thin and slick texture, soft carbonation, abrupt finish, and a light body.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. Though the texture leaves much to be desired, there is a great aroma and some nice flavor here. Roasty, bitter hops and some fruity goodness that is a brew better than I thought it would be.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Copper red, clear. A bit sourish apple raisin nose. Body is light, caramel, apples, malt. Strange. I dont think the apple is intentionally there, its more like a vinous off flavour.
