Bottle, 0.33l, courtesy of Yoo. Hazy almost black color with medium frothy light brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, nuts, mildly roasted malt, herbs and honey. Taste starts with sweet caramel, following is grassy and herbal with mild roasted note, spicy mouthfeel and moderate but unpleasant bitter finish. Light to medium body, creamy texture and average carbonation in palate. Sweet and rather weak herbal brew...

Sampled in a sip from Lakshmi’s beer, in a restaurant in Lautenbrunnen. Good dark colour, quite carbonated, thin off-white head. Malty aroma, rye bread, biscuits, malt, some slightly earthy hop in the finish. A good dunkel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Creamy and just a little toasty aroma with some noble hops. Almost opaque garnet with lasting, tan, thin blanket. Flavour begins with a little toasty malt that’s a little sweet and well balanced with bitterness, ending with some toastiness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting bitterness. Unremarkable.

500 mL draft on tap at Brasseri 17 in Interlaken on 5/26. Brown pour, amber/red around the edges. 1 finger off-white head left some considerable lacing down the side of my glass. Aroma wasn"t very prominent - just lightly malty. Lightly grainy, sweet caramel malt flavor. Just a hint of hops in a semi-dry finish. A bit over-carbonated. Decent beer that would be easy to drink a few of.

50cl bottle in Interlaken. Dark red/brown; black without light behind it. Light roasted aroma with a faint white wine acidity that grows over time. Bitter caramel flavor with faint coffee and a subtle hop balance; pretty light overall. Medium light body with hight carbonation; clean finish with some lingering bitterness. The acidic quality is a little odd, but it doesn’t seriously distract. Passable dunkel.
