3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle by 07.02.13, my 3900th rating entered into RB and 800th from Bavaria. Sweet caramel and berry nose, faint roast and chocolate, nutty. Dark, dark ruby body with a noisy tan head. Taste is very sweet and fruity, jammy, really, with berry and light tartness that doesn’t devolve into sourness. Does have some dusty hops, even above the nuttiness. Malty, slick light body. Thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s mahogany red with a huge, creamy head, and the aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, nuts, toast and hints of licorice. The flavor has a light sweetness and the same notes as the aroma. The finish is slightly dry and bitter. A really lovely dunkel.
