3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s dark brown with a red hue and a huge, creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, syrup and caramel. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, syrup and caramel, and the finish is slightly dry with a hint of syrup. It’s nice, but the sweetness is a bit too strong, and makes me give a slightly lower score.

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).

(Bottle, Hyddan, Åre, 26 March 2015) Brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark bread, dried fruit and a touch of brown sugar. Malty, slightly fruity taste with dark bread, dried fruit, raisins, brown sugar, roasted malt and a gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Quite decent, but fairly sweet and a bit metallic. Enjoyable.

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