16.9oz bottle, thanks to Alicia M. for bringing this back for me. Shared at Natifest 2013. Mildly hazy golden orange amber color. Minimal off-white head. No lace sticks.. Chocolate, dark fruit aroma. Light carbonation, kind of soft. Medium-plus body. Dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some bigger nuttiness. This is a pretty good dunkel. A pleasant surprise, as the hefe I had from them was really disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber with a fruity toffee aroma. Flavor is toffee and fruit and finishes with a bit of malty flavor. Hop character is nearly non-existent. Clean and not bad but nothing out of the ordinary.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml, swing-top bottle from some small shop in Munich. Pours a clear, deep brown colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fairly malty sweet with some richer caramels, a few fruity notes, a bit of a toasty bread, and a soft bittering hint. Flavor is similar. Caramels and some toasty toffee up front with a nice dark fruit, slight bread, and light cocoa note. Finishes clean, smooth, and somewhat dry with a light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. Nice caramel, toast, and fruit notes with a solid, clean bitterness. Nice beer.
