Must have been brewed in Belgium. Wonderfully sourish moments combined with wheat and some belgian yeast. Balanced aromas with a fine hoppy nose. Good one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - much thanks to KerenMK for the new country tick! Pours clear dark brown to black with a ruby tint, medium off-white head that slowly disspates with nice lacing. Aroma is malty with notes of roasted malt, caramel, grass, and perhaps a bit of metal. Flavor is the same, initially smoky and a bit salty, although the smokyness fades with time. Medium sweet with a light grassy/metallic bitterness. Medium body. Interesting and certainly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from DSG. Thanks Barak! It pours a very dark brown with a thin, disappearing khaki head. The aroma is pleasing with some sweet cocoa powder, toast and light notes of earthy hops and sulfur. The flavor has more toast and light cocoa, vanilla and hints of diluted molasses, roasted malt and earthy hop bitterness in the finish. There’s a touch of metal and green/raw malt that throws it off a bit and keeps it from being truly enjoyable, but I liked the toast and cocoa flavors. The body is a bit thin too, but not too bad for a lower gravity Dunkler Bock. I’d drink this on the regular if options were slim.
