3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ the brewpub
Three and half years of beer geeking and still haven’t tasted the Dunkel from my local brewery…but here we go: Aroma has lots of butter and diacetyl and almost no roastiness at all – feels a lot like a (good) czech pils. Also some grassy hops. Flavour has roasted malt, some coffee, butter and grassy hops. Some distant metallic savor occurs at the last sip. Creamy but definitely not foamy palate. Good (bohemian) Dunkel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Pikkulintu) Poured almost black. Head was medium sized and dark brown. The roastiness of the aroma surprised me. Aroma contained also cream and sweetness. Palate was too dry, body was ok. Lack on excessive sweetness was the best thing in the taste. Other flavours were roastedness, burntness, mildly molassess and medium bitterness. Aftertaste could have lasted longer - it contained roastedness and bitterness. Quite easily drinkable session beer - the high carbonation disturbed little.

On tap at Wildeman. A bitter and very dark beer, really good. It’s got a creamy head the tastes picks up, from an easy sip to a punchy finish. Sticky and sweet.
