2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Darkish brown, small and mostly fully diminishing head. Moderate malty and sugary sweet aroma, some dark buttery bread. Moderate body, malty and sugary sweet, some dark bread and roasted malt. Finish is short, malty and sugary sweet, lightly roasted. Well, if you like sweet lemonade and cherry cola this one is for you. Otherwise, stay away.

Bottle and pint. I had had an Urpiner once before and thought it was this one, I was surprised that this one didn’t taste like a sugar coated, wet paper bag like that last one so it must’ve been something else from the same brewery. Anyway, this is a pretty good beer with some sweetness to it.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is a mix of barley, grains, and malts, in that order, and decently balanced. Has a nice dark amber colour. Taste of a good mix of roasted barley and malts. Pretty good for its style, and worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33 l bottle from "Különleges Sörök Boltja", Budapest.
Dark brown/ruby colour, the beige head upon is medium sized and remains creamy.
Roasty, buttery nose, the taste is sweet, flavour’s of toffee/coffee, nice oily mouthfeel.
The middle is of roasted and caramell malt with notes of bottom fermented yeast in the back.
Finish is coffeebitter and dry, a sweet toffee-liked aftertaste remains.
For me it was overall a nice and enjoyable one.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours reddish very dark brown with largish, beige head; aroma is sweet of toasted and buttery caramel; flavor is caramel sweet, slight to moderate roasty finishing burnt caramelish, even woody; light-medium body with moderate carbonation. Falls into the category of "a bit oversweet dunkels", but in that context it positions itself fairly well.
