Botella. Unclear amber brown colour. Medium light brown creamish head. Nutty, caramel and well toasty malty aroma. Rather thin mouthfeel. The flavour has toasted malt and caramel, some nuts and brown sugar, bitter hops and chocolate. reminds me more of a brown ale than a dunkel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From the bottle this pours brown with a soft beige head. Very watery on the palate, to soft to bring a lot of flavors through. Earthy toward the finish. The roastiness was there, but not very strong, lacked a nice smoothness that I like in dunkles. Overall I just thought this was to watery, bland flavors.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very earthy aroma, like earthworms even! Dark, musty/dusty flavor, fairly rich, rustic. Slight coffee aftertaste with subtle bitterness. Like it came straight out of the ground, interesting beer.

Pot stopper with painted label: tasted in the Kaufhof Münster. Pours a big off-white frothy head. Orange brown color, just a bit hazy. Caramelly aroma and flavor with licorice. Little hopbitterness, little carbon. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but a very nice malty beer.
