Bottle. Pours a very dark amber with no head. Plenty of caramel and a touch of roasted malts in the aroma. Taste has more caramel, some toffee and a lightly yeastyness. There is a little smokyness hidden in there as well..

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From tap (I think). Sweet, a littel syrupy. Chocolate, cookies, maltiness. Actually quite empty all in all. Not bad, but nothing rememberable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Germany. Translucent and reddish-amber in color with a booming, dense, and a nearly two-inch tall, fluffy tan head. Chestnuts, prunes and a smocking caramel current lead-off the aroma, pursued by milky cocoa butter, chocolate-covered hazelnuts, ginger toffee and allspice flecked on copper kettles. Rewarding flavor of caramel-dipped apples (country style), dry cocoa bricks, and butter pecan with a dry, light baker’s chocolate quality. Dark skinned, non-juicy prunes insert a pragmatic fruit note. Apple-cinnamon butter on raisin bran muffins. Mild carbonation brings me back to Bavaria, along with its medium-bodied mouth feel and a somewhat thicker viscous tract. Solid relationship of caramel, chocolate and Munich malts with a distant, supportive and regal approach to noble hopping. Caramel-chocolate-apple toffee chew cubes come out in the finish along with some cocoa prunes for added pleasure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 500 ml screwcap bottle, bought in Bier Spezi Hamburg. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, decent pale greyish brown head. Pleasant malty sweet aroma with notes of caramel, toast and bakery. Mellow nutty flavour with notes of dark bread and caramel, tolerable hops for a dunkel (Hallertau, Spalt and Tettnang). Nice.
