2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle served at perfect temperature at an outdoor cafe in Freising, Bavaria. Thin, off-white head over a deep mahogany coloured body. Malty to the nose. Suitable sweet malty flavour with notes of cocoa and hops. Dry ending. Rather foamy mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Not among the best German dunkels (24.06.2007).
