3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line :
Earthy hops and toasted, caramelized malts roam within this Dunkel’s foamy, sugary mouthfeel.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A clinging sheet of foam decorates the coppery mahogany.
-Fruity edges add diversity.
-Malts seem to provide more sugar than actual malt flavors.
-The flavor profile is not really cohesive, but it remains flavorful throughout.
On tap at the brewery gasthof.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smooth, tasty dunkel that packs a lot of malty flavor, more so than some of its counterparts making it a great easter-time beer.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub: Hazy, ruby-amber coloured, firm creamy off-white head; caramelly toasty nose with a subtle fruitiness underneat; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied; chocolatey traces in the dryish bitter and dark-malty finish. Not too bad......

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden dark brown with a small tan head. Roasted malt, breadish and mild caramelish aroma. Flavour has the same with a nice sweetness and good bitterness to match this.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2015 At Unionsbräu in Munich. Does not have as pronounced a unique aroma as Unionsbräu’s Helles(actually a Kellerbier) or Maibock. A decent dunkel but not super exciting. A little thin in body and a little lighter in flavor than I would want. Still decent. Serving: Tap

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark brown with nice thin head. Hints of diacetyl, toffee on the nose. Butter palate with some toast and light toffee. Still drinkable, but not by much.
