bottle. this is pretty worthless, i didn’t pay much attention to it at the tasting. i’m pretty much just rating it to expedite my beer god status. it was dark brown and lots of sweet malt.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent typically carbonated dark orange brown colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops sweet and vinous. A decent one but not one that I would consider buying again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Medium sized ivory fizzy head that mostly diminished, virtually no lacing, transparent, slow-rising carbonation, and an orange hue. Nose was sweet, caramel, and malt. Flavor was sweet, malt, caramel, some fruit taste, and somewhat of a rich taste. Mouthfeel was mostly smooth with a slight tingle. Light-medium body. Just a so-so brew and not one that will be seeked out again.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge yellowish offwhite head, partly coarse. Beautiful amber body with fast carbonation. Aroma is a subtle, harmonic mix of butter, roastiness, rubber, and milk. Taste is sweet, roasty rubber malts. Aftertaste is dry butter. It’s quite well made, but they decided to put in some stuff I don’t like, notably butter and rubber. Overall score is pretty low, because of that. (0.5l bottle.)

Clear amber appearance with a large, tan head and little lacing. Sweet caramel malt aroma; hints of fresh fruit and toffee. Sweet malt taste; some molassas, some fruitiness. Modest, spicy hop flavors. Medium bodied mouthfeel with restrained carbonation leading to a short lived, slightly cloying finish.

Calling this dark is misleading.I expected a Dunkel and got what resembled a striong lager. Nevertheless its a decent beer, quite clear and slightly malty. Some fruits as well and no carbonation makes it easy to drink.Pity about the incorrect name though.
