3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Very dark amber coloured, mid-sized fluffy tanned head, slowly diminishing; aromas of sweet dark malt and roasted malt with a tinge of molasses; first comes a moderate sweetish flavour, that quickly switches over to a more drier and bitter flavour, light to medium bodied; the roastmalty or chocolatey bitterness is still present in the sweetbitter finish and in the slightly lingering bitter aftertaste. A pleasant and fairly well balanced Dunkel.............

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2006 Not overwhelmed. Very sweet in taste, even too sweet if you ask me. Also has strong notes of coffee. Aroma is burnt sugar. Pretty dark brown if we’re speaking looks, foam is brown and short lasting. Like it but don’t love it. (Having a second glas I think like a bit more... Maybe I have to re-rate som day.)
