2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark reddish brown colour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts and coffee and cocao beans. Flavour has some roasted notes of sourish and watery coffee (quite watery actually) together with a hint of chocolate sweetness. Very thin on the mid-palate. The finish has some roasted notes and a very little bitterness. Boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. A very dark reddy black coloured beer with a decent but short lived off white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity. Lots of caramel and fossil fuel in the nose. The taste is very similar. There is a smokiness in there amidst the dark fruits. My type of dunkel; sweet and full of flavour.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black/brown with a moderate head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt and a bit of caramel. The flavour is slightly sweet and malty with notes of licorice and caramel, and the bitterness is nice. It briefly reminds me of a stout, at least while it’s cold, but as it grows warmer it "just" a nice dunkel.
