3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A sweet, tangy dunkel. It definitely gets better as you go. Not an outstanding dunkel but a drinkable one when in a pinch.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nutty brown with a disappearing head. Aromas are clean fresh and nutty with hints of cocoa. Flavours are light roast malts with a burnt toffee base. Fairly nutty and hoppy. Its a bit too light in character for a dunkel, but is a decent beer nonetheless.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good, brownish head over deep-amber beer. Nutty, bready nose, autumn leaves, sweet and very malty. Nutty malts taste (maybe slightly aged?), ending on chestnut flour. Though also a bit woody, mainly one big malt explosion. Very slick, even when not very well-bodied. Long-ish sweetish aftertaste. OK Dunkel, on the sweet side.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A chestnut brown coloured dunkel with little head. The aroma is on the thin side with only a little nuttiness. The taste is also thin with only a little caramel and nut coming through. I thought it seemed too cold (drank @ The Criterion Leicester) and maybe suffered for that? But not a good dunkel.
