Bottled. Sampled at Monks Café, Stockholm.
Ruby colour. Dusty malt nose with toffee hints. Good malty and balancedly so. No deeper sensations, just plain and solid dunkel. A bit on the light side.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Muito boa cerveja da Stephani. Coloração vinho escuro; espuma densa e presente, coloração ambar. Cheiro gostoso, frutado e adocicado. Ceveja encorpada. Grãos torrados no sabor na medida certa. Levemente adocicada (caramelo) Retrogosto amargo. Melhor que a de trigo. Cerveja de baixa fermentação. Refrescante.

Red brown beer, small head. Caramelish, malty, toasted aroma. Toffee, vanilla, bit yeasty, some fruit and sweetish/bitterish taste. Finishes bitterish and a little roasted. Nice session starter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful brillant, dark ruby-amber; under creamy, brownish-amber head. Some caramel & quite a bit of chocolate in the nose. Ending on an aroma of garden herbs - and mineral water. Some sweet & dark malts, some bitterness, bit earthy, and a flavour of caramel. Certainly not overly sweet, but the MF is a bit too light & watery to be really pleasing. There is a sourishness too, bit fruity (as unripe raspberries), that I do like. Body is light - very much so. By no means a bad beer. But a little bit of mouthfeel, body, beef to the bones, might have been advisable.

Bottle at the Hitchin Beer Festival. A dark caramel brown, with a decent head. Lots of malt and toffee in the nose. The flavour has loads of malt sweetness - tasted like liquid Shreddies breakfast cereal. Suprisingly light bodied and easy to drink, but doesn’t really offer very much.

Sucked down a litre of this at the Weihenstephan Biergarten in Freising. Second half of a day trip that started at Kloster Andechs. After the walk from the train station through the town and then up the hill to the campus Biergarten, this was more than welcome. Deep red color, almost brown, with a tan head. I’ve got to admit that I was not delicate with this beer. No swirling, no wafting. I chugged. And it was good. Smooth, chocolatey, some roastiness. Wiping off my chin with my shirt cuff....Ahhhhh.....

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2007 Pours dark tawny in color. Medium beige head, not so good retention. Mild malty aroma, a little bit sweet. Taste is strong malt, a little roastness, and bitter-sweet. Resiny mouthfeel. There’s a little acidity in the aftertaste that makes it very refreshing.
A well balanced dunkel.
Very good! So bad it is expensive here in Brazil... :(
Re-rating: it is a wonderful beer. I’m loving it more and more...
