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

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.
