3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Creamy bubbly brown head over a dark brown body. Fairly high carbonation, lifting the roasted and bready malts over a clean yeast. Less hop than expected. Simple taste, despite the nice roasted malts. Drinks well but not as smooth and nice as I expected. (5cl bottle from Beer City)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
THX! for the bottle. Polished of about half of a 500 ml. bottle @ Delirium Cave. BBF 20/02/2014. Pours a reddish dark brown with a mocha head. Smells pretty sweet with plenty of syrup, chocolate & heavy on sweet herbs. Taste is same, sweet, brown sugar, syrup, distinct iron, chocolate, bitter grounds, faint charcoal, slightly milky. Easy to drink. No one seemed to like it, I thought that even if it was not earth shattering that it was a pretty solid Dunkel never the less.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, very dense & fine cream-coloured head; reddish deep mahogany colour. Again diacetyl (and lots of it), but with the melanoidineish/chestnut aroma, it’s sufferable; creamy. Totally different taste, at odds with the nose: light, slightly toasted malts with a marked sourish (in the best way) presence. Bit malty, brown German (Czech?) style bread. Feels better bodied than it probably is. Long sweetish - indeed - chestnut aftertaste. Good tmavy, the diacetyl only perceptible in the nose. Worth trying.
