3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, chestnut-amber coloured, small, persistent off-white head. caramelly-bitter nose with fruity and a roast-malty touch. Moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied, quite soft MF. Caramelly and slightly bitter finish with some herbal undertones. Astonishingly good Dunkel by a mass-market producer........

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a small beige foamy head. Sweet roast-malty aroma with notes of cacao, caramel and a delicate herbal hoppy blend. Slightly sweet flavour with a light roasty bitterness, solid malty with a tinge of dark bread, caramel and faint herbal accents; moderately dry and bitter, but also a bit slim and short finish. Anyway a decent Dunkel (31.X.08).

Very nice, a little similar to the Bajuvator one but exquisit. It is very sweet and sour. Nice colour and great foam.

50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep amber to brown with a fully gone head. Light toasted to breadish malt aroma. Sweet caramel malty flavour with a nice breadish note. Roasted and slight fruity too. Lasting breadish impression into the finish alongside a nice level of bitterness. Nice one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught: Poured a orange brown with a huge head, the bartender was shitty and this beer was a mix of four glass poured because they couldn’t figure the CO2. The aroma was sweet caramel malt. The taste was kinda flat with a bitter caramel metallic. I’m sure the serving was not the best quality.

Bottle, thanks Nightfall!
A little smoke, some nuts, some dark dried fruit. A bit grainy, too. Well balanced, old fashioned, perhaps, but relievingly different.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: Intensive malty and caramelic aroma with light sweetness. Dark chestnut brown color with off-white foamy head. Light sweet, caramel flavor with few roasted malt aromas and few hop. Metallic and dry notes in the end. Quite ok but not too special.
