Bottle. Dark chocolate, malty. Average off-white foamy head, fast and fully diminishing; dark red body. Average duration, moderate bitter start & finish. Medium body, dry & creamy texture, soft carbonation. Very nice Dunkel, a little bit like a chocolate stout.

Thank you Jeverszeuge! It’s a red mahogany coloured beer with a dense, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt and a little bit of nuts. The flavour is initially sour, like in infected, with a vinegar touch. But then i becomes sweet with notes of malt and nuts. Sadly the start spoils the overall impression, I’m pretty sure this could have been a quite tasty dunkel.

Dark copper with a small but lasting off-white head. Grain and hay aromas. Sweet malty flavour with a hint of a bitter finish. Thin body.

Bottled, thanks jeverszeuge! Clear nut brown, rich beige head. Earthy malt aroma. Fairly sweet with soft mouthfeel and medium body. Fairly low on hops, restrained earthy malt flavours. Has a slight citric edge, probably from improper keeping so no points deducted. Low bitterness.

Bügelverschlußflasche: Mahagony coloured, hazy, medium-sized off-white head, quickly collapsing; presumably infected: fruity-estery with traces of sour-mash, dark malt and caramel; moderate sweetish flavour, light bodied; caramelly fruity finish. No pleasure, deserves a second chance.....

Bottled. The label clearly said Dunkel but I could not detect any difference from the Marzen that I just had before this one. Except for the fact that this one stayed in the bottle. Does anyone? So: Aroma of apple and a hint of carrots. Some orange coming up when warming up. Hazy, orange/brown color, yellow irregular head, fair lace. Sweet, orange, light bitter, flat.

(on bottle) Massively infected; like smelling a mash gone totally to rot. Taste was nothing but sour apples and chewinggum gone carbonated.

MoritzF (9094) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2006
(swing top bottle, with many thanks to Jevers Zeuge) Hazy, dark amber to copper colour with a mid-sized foamy beige head diminishing into a creamy layer. Dusty aroma of light-sweet toasted malt with fruity esters (red berries) and toffee. Light sweet flavour, a bit slim, medium carbonated mouthfeel. Slightly toasted malty and light fruity, yeasty taste; light bitter malty finish, toasty and yeasty aftertaste. Fairly drinkable but lacking ripeness.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 50 cl bottle. Cream coloured head. Hazy, red-brown colour. Sour smell of red fruits. Slightly perfumy. Flavour is likewise sour (I measured pH 3,8). Slightly roasted with some smokey bacon hints. Nicely balanced palate though.
