not much of a head, a great dark beer though. lacks the coffee flavor most dark brews have, and thats what i find appealing about this one. although i do like the coffee flavor, its good to find a dark that doesnt have it. this beer is good out of a bottle, and even better on tap. great effort

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dusky appearance with a fair sized head. Not much of a nose; a little woody/nutty. Smooth, light bodied malt taste with a touch of sweetness. Lacks complexity. A middle-of-the-road dunkle from a brewery that could do better.

deep cherry wood or mahogany color. decent head with big fat bubbles, but pretty short-lived..leaves a nice ring though and a tiny bit of lacing..moderate carbonation. aroma is of mildly smoky malts (reminiscent, to me, of a smoked turkey at thanksgiving). flavor has a slight smoky quality to it and a hair of nuttiness as well....not at all bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber-brown color. Nutty malt aroma. Flavor is almost all malt and little else. Lacks complexity. Syrupy palate and a flat body. Disappointing.

Light brown color. Hensfood aroma. Vinegar feel, both in aroma and flavor. Really bad one...

Brown with an ok head.
A sour, vinegar aroma.
Not much flavour at all, but rather smooth.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The beer has a great flavor. Nutty with a hint of roasted nuts (barley) that is pungent to the nose. Very smooth and is the best with real german meat loaf. Nice dark color similiar to the bocks that I drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Delicate but big malt flavour. Perfect bitterness for balance. A delicate hop bouquet is evident not only in the aroma but also in the flavour.

6/21/03, draft, Berlin. Thick, dark brown brew with a large, creamy, tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of peat, smoked malts, hops and brown bread. Flavor is rich roasted malts, earth, assertive hops and an astringent finish. Full bodied with an immediate mouthburst of carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light in body and flavor. Sweet, nutty, toasty, light caramel malts. Even though I'm not a dunkel fan this is someway below my favorite dunkel.
