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........

Draft. Pours a clear, deep, dark red to light brown. About an inch of off white head. Aroma is like dark bread and crust. Taste is similar with a very sweet note, but kinda dries out in the finish. Not cloying but close.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Deep chestnut tinted-body with a porous beige head on the top.
Aroma: Moderate lagery yeast sourness with a touch of earthy feel and some faint burnt sugar.
Flavor: Mildly sweet toffes, oily, nutty, toasty malts followed by a smooth, slighlty sour, yeasty notes and framed with soft and spicy hops.
Mouthfeel/Palate: Pleasantly easy but enough mouth-filling body with saturated carbonation and a good caramel malty-flavor-profile.
Overall: A very clean and pure bavarian dunkel. Not too unique, but tasy one.
