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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish medium brown pour with a one finger soda-like beige head, looks exactly like root beer. Aroma is toast, chocolate, ripe tree fruit, cooked apples, floral hops, bread, hay and a little toffee. Flavor is loaded with apples and tree fruit up front, light roasted nuts, faint cocoa, light acidity, a little banana, odd green wood tartness, some toffee and more sweet fruity notes to the finish. Light body, dry, acidic feel, medium, sharp carbonation. Not very good.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Münster visit tasting continued. Wife loved this one at Pinkus brewpub at lunch. Then ended up at Drübbelken for dinner (at the coveted - or tourist trap - high table). Ordered "zwei Jubi bitte!" in the house mugs and all was right with the world. This beer is like the Bud Light of dunkels - which I say in a good way because the enlightened beer drinker (and brewers) appreciate Bud Light’s clear drinkability. Jubi is an amazing dunkel with a dangerous drinkability. Loved it. Sometimes wife has seriously good taste in beer!

You don’t find a lot of German Organic beer around here, so I will enjoy this one regardless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear with a mahogany brown body and a weak head.
Attractive, relatively complex aroma; mainly malty with hints of raisins faint hops. The flavor follows, but seems less complex and fruity.
Feel: very smooth with excellent carbonation and a slightly buttery finish.
O: excellent for style and good with food.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Organic dark lager with light beige, mousse-like, sticky head and warm copper colour with brown hue, clear. Aroma of toasted bread, hazelnuts, caramel, coffee liqueur, meat broth, soy sauce, candi syrup, peppery hops and iron. Rounded dark maltiness in the mouth, soft carbo, dryish with only light malt sweetness, very nutty and caramelly, bittering in the end with toasted malts, something meaty and a whiff of floral hops, medium long. Seems a bit too pale for a true Dunkel but otherwise a good lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of caramel malt, with notes of yeast and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with dusty notes and touches of caramel malt. Rough aftertaste. Something between an Altbier and a Dunkel. Okay but nothing special.
