2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap; not as dark as other german dunkels. This was fuller bodied though with a stronger cocoa/sweetness taste to it. Overall OK, but I prefer many other German dunkels over this one

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Goldener Hahn in Lippstadt. The beer pours out in a deep dark colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and dried fruits. Taste of malt, chocolate, torf, woods, grains and caramel. Earthy character. Easy to drink, not that bad, but actually nothing special at all.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Goldener Hahn Lippstadt. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black, nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, not too roasty. Some mild earthy notes. Finish still mild, almost a bit washy. But quite drinkable. Okay.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at the Goldener Hahn in Lippstadt into a half liter mug. It has an amber body with some copper hues and nice inch tall tan head. The aroma offers up a dash of fresh grainy malts as well as some sweet dark fruity esters and faint spicy and earthy hops. The taste is similar with a mild level of roasted malts mixing with blue berry and raisin dark fruity esters and a solid undercurrent of earthiness. It gets a bit grainy and almost wort like here and there. Very easy drinking and refreshing. I could drink liters and liters of this stuff. I think I’ll go back for more.
