4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very dark brown. Light toasty, liquoricey note. The palate has rich toffee with lots of liquorice/anise. There are hints of coffee, but the body overall trends towards treacle, panela and other rich, dark sugars. Definitely a unique example and with these rich, intense dark fruity sugars it is right up my alley.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ brewery keller. Black, and opaque, looks more like a schwartz. Aroma is intense molasses. Full on dark sugar and soy sauce, in a good way. Light spritzy body. Great rich, intense flavors. Surprisingly not roasty, it’s more of the black sugar type of flavor profile. Nourishing beer, and I’m convinced this is the one they used to serve to the patients when the brewery was also a hospital...

bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear deep dark brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Aroma of chocolate and roasetd malts. Medium-bodied, malty with roasetd malt, hints of chocolate and walnut. A nice one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank @ the brewery. Black beer with lasting, tan head. More substance here than in the weizen-dunkel. Here there are roasted coffee notes and a lasting malt finish, with mild bitterness. Looks good, tastes good. A decent dunkel.

(draught at the Spitalgarten) Clear, dark brown colour with a reddish shine and a short beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty nose with a distinctive berry fruity touch and light notes of caramel. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Tasty, slightly fruity taste with a touch of caramel; moderately dry, toasty and slightly bitter finish.

On tap at the Spitalgarten: Literally dunkel with a lacing off-white head, metallic and sweet dark-malty nose; soft MF, moderate sweet-bitter flavour; sweetish, roast-malty finish with a very light bitterness. O.K, a quite nice session beer.....

Tap, at Spitalgarten in Regensburg July 2005. Cola brown, good pale beige head and good condition.
