3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20

Medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, light fruitiness and light roasted malt, light bread and light citrus - herbal hoppyness.
Finish is short to average, malty and lightly sweetish, light roasted malt and light bread, light herbal hoppyness. OK hoppyness is wasted on dunkel.

Bottle. Dark brown, clear. A bit of dark sour berries, chocolate, and a subtle greenish hoppyness. Body is a bit light, but with chocolate, some coffee. I really enjoyed this. It has a hoppy character that is uncommon in these, but not overpowering. Just enough to make it interesting.
