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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark with a rocky tan head that leaves very quickly. The aroma is bready with pumpernickel, cream, roasted nuts and lager smoothness. Medium lightly sticky body with mild carbonation. The flavor begins with the aroma traits, but is drier and spicier. The finish has light hoppiness and some dark caramel and toffee. Nice dunkel.

Draught as Professor Doppelmalz. Sweet bready aroma. Dark brown colour. Big stable light brown head. The flavour is quite sweet, slightly roasted, nicely bready. Does not taste like a low alcohol beer. No watery body, no watery finish. Good, albeit a tad sweet.

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.

Pour is a dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dark bread with some caramel malt. Flavor is more caramel malt to start then comes a decent nutty, spicy malt. Finishes leaves a decent malty sweetness on the tounge. Decent dunkel.

Bottle. All the typical characteristics here, as if right out of the style guide. Red-tinged black color with an initial Germanic fizzle of a head. Sweet and roasty, King of Malt indeed. (#5462, 3/15/2014)

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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
<i>Draught at Hopfhaus, Vienna (as Schlägl Dunkles (5.5%). </i> Mahogany colour, rich creamy head. Nutty and lightly roasty. Soft but übersweet. Low in carnonatio with medium body. Sugar screams in my face - all I sense and feel is sweetness - a baklava-like tornado strength honey sweetness that pretty much overturns everything in it’s path. The malt flavour seems carefully carved out, only to be made into rubble by the excessive sweetness. Pretty much a dessert beer to be consumed in very small amounts. It has lots of talent, but doesn’t provide the resulkts expected. Please ferment it out more!
