3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(on bottle, thx for the present, Jeppe) Strong sent of rum, fresh ryebread and heavy chocolate. Nice carbonation, but watery ´cause one expects so much more from that aroma. Has very dominant coffee and chocolate = malt-ntes indeed. Bit flat finish, but gain, this is just a dunkel, not a strong beer, just a good one.

Bottled. Dark amber with minor white head. Strong roasted malt with hints of syrup and caramel in aroma. Roasted malt and fruitish taste. Wellbalanced beer, but I’d like to se a bit more carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A chestnut brown coloured beer ith a tall white head which dwindles quite quickly. The aroma has oats, bran and raisins but also a little shampoo. The taste is very nutty with dark fruits and malts. A good Dunkel.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark chocolate brown; shows good clarity. Nose isn’t doing much, faint roasted malty notes. A bit flat in the mouth as well; some more malty notes but doesn’t really hit any level of interest. Pleasant enough but there are simple too many better beers at the price.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Re-rate:- Haven’t had this one for a while, but I found myself up for a session and needed a decent lager to drink. This one came to mind immediately for afford-ability, drinkability and ofcourse reuse-ability of empty brown bottles. Poured into a Weihenstephan stein. Better, dense, rocky tan head formed than my first rate. Held on for the length and left some frosting. The body of beer a ruddy, deep brown and brilliantly clear. Doughy, slightly biscuity, cookie dough and roasted malts greet the nose. No hops. Lightly sweet upfront in the mouth, woody, deeper malts across the palate and drying towards the backwith some lightly roasted and toasted malts finishing it off. Light bodied for style and well charged in carbonation, but not as to hinder things. Not as filling in the stomach as I remember. Not bad, definitely hit the spot.
Yet another nice beer from the Weihenstephan brewery, and a good drop in general. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a tall stem glass, a short soapy tan head formed atop a clear cola brown body. Chocolate and toffee nose with a hint of toasted malt. Light bodied (oddly filling in the stomach) and light in carbonation. Sweet in the mouth, chocolate, toffee, with a balance of bitter roasted grain and burnt sugars in the back. No real hop definition, just a good malty Dunkel that went down a treat. Quite nice!!!
