Thanks Cuso. Interesting experience to taste this beer, but one time is enough. Aroma is very nice like plum juice. But taste is like sour plums :-)

Bottled. Many thanks to Cuso. Aroma is excellent! Very promising of a plum marmalade or dried plums. However, the taste is sour like hell and undrinkable! Sour chocolate or coffee. Yuck!

Bottle shared by Cuso. Aroma brett, fruity. Very dark colour. Taste is not unlike sour beers, fruits. As a sour spontaneously fermented beer this could pass pretty well. I rate it as such.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2013 It’s been a few weeks since I had this beer, so I don’t remember the exact details, but suffice to say that it tasted so bad, that I couldn’t finish it. Granted I didn’t have any Dunkler Bock beers in the past, so I don’t have much to compare against, but I do love Dopple Bock beers and many of the attributes are supposed to be similar so I don’t think it’s the style that’s wrong. Just this specific beer.

Bottle. Pours opaque deep brown with a small head. Aroma starts unpleasantly with rubber and plastic though almost disappeared after several minutes, and faint smell of roasted malt comes out. Taste - light sweetness, caramel, roasted malts, dark chocolate. Light-medium body, smooth on the palate.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle pour at the Great Japan Beer Festival in Osaka (7/13/2013). Bad skunked-out pissy nose. Light brown tea color. Minimal chocolate, which does hide the foul off flavors a bit. Maybe the same bad yeast in all their beers, or something wrong with their other ingredients?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at the GJBF Osaka. More of an amber than a dark color, though maybe a smidge darker than their amber. The flavor has the same kind of skunkiness to it as the amber I had though not as strong. I think they are using some smoke malts. It is quite bitter, not so well done. Their golden is their best but even that is average.
