Light brown head on a dark brown body. Very roasted and bitter. I have never been a fan of dunkels, and this is a good example.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 Perfect appearance for a dunkel! The beer is completely opague red/brown and has an incredibly dense head in the precisely correct amount, and it lasts in a very long time. The aroma, however, is not very impressive. It has nice touches of caramel malts and sweetness in general, but is not very obvious. The flavor is very nice, with it’s obvious malty and sweet taste with notes of smoke, and a nice bitterness in the finish. The beer seems medium bodied the most of the time, but i can seem a little thin sometimes. However, this is still a very nice beer.

(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear mahogany with a warm, reddish hue. Handsome, tall and creamy, beige head leaving a pretty lacework as it dissipates. Aroma of roasted malt. Medium-bodied - at the most - with sweetish, roasted malt and a lightly burned edge. Not much bitterness to be found on the palate, but very rounded and pleasant. 260506
