500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear light brown, with a moderate beige head that quickly fades. Nose is a faint aroma of yeast and malt. Taste is like most dunkels, a little sweet, but lacks depth of flavor. Watery. Just OK.

This was too sweet for my tastes for a dunkel. It didn’t have much body, could have been more assertive too. I’d drink it if you handed it to me, but I won’t be paying for another.

Aroma of banana and whole wheat bread. Thick looking brown, fluffy tan head. Lots of dark fruit sweetness, relatively spicy with clove and vanilla background tastes. Sampled very fresh, probably improves things. Cream body, high drink-ability.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2014 Aroma: Banana forward nose with some light chocolate and spiced bread; clove is faint. Appearance: Murky light brown pour that really seems nearly blonde around the edges; Very fluffy bone head that settles into a soft cap. Flavor: Spiced bread, slight chocolate up front that develops into an extended banana presence toward the finish; clove lingers as an afterthought. Palate: Full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, long finish. Overall: A little dialed back in almost all respects, which might make it a decent introduction to the style.
