Average beige frothy head with good retention. Ver dark brown colour, close to black. Clean toasted malt and brown sugar aroma,not very complex, but nice. Taste is also intense toasted malt and sweet (brown sugar, chocolate hints). Nice to drink and to eat with it.

Rough light brown foam with moderate durability. The aroma reveals weak something hard roasted malt. The taste is malty, luscious mellow with a little burnt caramelized taste and good balanced hop bitterness in the final. Licorice aftertaste. A schwarz falling quite to my taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a hazelnut brown to black color, together with a beige, bubbly lacing, coating the edge of the glass.
Has aromas of dried walnut shell, bread, rock sugar and a note of milk chocolate. All in all the nose comes well together promising a sweeter, malt relying beer.
Has a soft mouthfeel among a lighter body, which features many Dunkel qualities in a well put together way, ranging from bready to toffeeish sweet.
Begins with slightly tart milk chocolate, coming along with a soft bread and earth malt foundation, which turns sweeter, revealing toffee qualities right before the swallow. Gets added a portion of rock sugar during the finish, balanced by earthy marzipan and bakers chocolate, preventing the beer from becoming overly sweet.
Solid beer, with a pleasant finish, absorbing a lot of the prominent sweetness, adding a nice depth to the taste.
