3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just came across these notes from my Swiss trip last fall ... Brown color with a reddish tint. Frothy beige head. Lively carbonation and a lightish texture. Roasty and toasty, with nice notes of nuts, tobacco and toffee. Some bitterness surfaced in the finish. Decent, easy-to-drink brew.

A typical Dunkles in the Bavarian style.
Malty with a low hop rate but very ’moorish’ Sweet Finish

I was hopeing to finds something special for rating #100, but this was the best interlakkan had to offer, and it was great after a long day of hiking in the alps, but nothing special. From the tap. Poured a dark brown with a thick beige head. Aroma and flavor was slighly sweet and roasty. thin in the mouth and finished dry. Probably the best beer you will find in the Berner Oberland, but who cares about beer when you are in one of the most buetiful places in the world?

Rugie Dunkel is the way to go - easy to find in the Berner Oberland - bomber bottles occasionally tap. Pours dark- very little head, roasted malts, finishes very sweet. Can drink a few of these after a long day...

I remember this as heavy and almost sweet, with heavy grain notes. But a wonderful round at the end of a day of backpacking. Had this in the town it was brewed, Interlaken.

Very middle of the road European. Had this one in Switzerland and it produced a thick head with nice color. It was a bit flat and bitter for me but I understand those are the same qualities that some people want.

Nice wine-like aroma with floral and fruit tones in the aroma. Beautiful dark color, nice head. Deep complex taste. Good. Had on tap in the town where brewed. Very fresh. Who knows if it travels well.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2011 from Bierhütte.ch - pours a dark brown beer with a persistent beige foam, aroma of corn and toasted malts; creamy palate, thin-bodied and pretty harsh, a subtle but solid carbonation; earthy and nutty finish with more corny notes - raw and poor
