3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
draught 330ml at Stiftskeller Schlägl. Bouquet of quince jelly, boiled plum and germinated cereal, this beer really lives up to its name. Deep mahogany in colour with a light beige head, it is a very light malt beer and very easy to drink. Tastes very malty with notes of caramel. Quite quaffable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours a deep dark, mahogany red. In taste and aroma, it lives up to its name as ’Malt King’. Huge malty aroma, sweet caramel taste and a smooth finish. One for malt fans and lighter and easier to drink than a similar tasting Belgian beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark nut brown color, small brownish head. Papery, caramelly, perfumic, rye bread ("kvass") aroma. Light palate, caramelly malty, hints of rye - almost like drinking Finnish table beer (kalja) or kvass - just lighter!

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dusty nose (potatoes?), malty, light sweet. Mahagoni color, off-white head. Malty, light sweet some fruit and hop notes. Light sweet aftertaste with almond notes, and a short dry bitterness. All in all a quite unspectacular Dunkel, but not as sweet as others.
