3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Appearance: Murky, dark brown with a thick, off white foam head.
Aroma: Toast an bread crust, with a hint of roasted malt.
Taste: toast and bread crust dominates, with hints of chocolate and roasted malt. Seems a little roastier than other Dunkels. Hop character doesn’t add any noticeable flavors, but balances the malt.
Mouthfeel: Medium with a light to moderate bitterness.
Finish: Crisp, with a lingering toasty flavor on the tongue.
Overall: Great Dunkel. Maybe slightly roastier than the style indicates, but strong Munich and Vienna malt flavors dominate
