3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from "Sörspecialista", Bp.
Clear mahogany/dark amber coloured brew with a nice creamy and laceing off-white head on its top, which remain thinly.
Smell of caramell and grassy hops.
Sharp start escorted by a malty aroma of caramell, toast, grass and yeast.
Sweet taste of caramell balanced by a spicy and toasted/nutty bitter flavour in the finish, which drains the palate and remain in a caramell-toasty aftertaste.
Medium bodied, good drinkable stuff, worth for a try…

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small, off-white head over copper-amber beer. Parsley, nuts, bread for aromas. Nutty, chestnuts, bread and EU-hops. Rather light MF, but more heavy backthroat, despite falling flat by then. Danke, Jonas!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nagyon finom kis serecske, kicsit édeskés, malátás, olyan melaszos.
Érződik a karemel is. Igazi dunkel mintapéldány. Ja és gesztenyebarna színe van, annak akit ez érdekel.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear, copper-colored beer topped by a two-finger, creamy head leaving lacings. The aroma has DMS, smoke-notes, hints of cellar and most of all, caramel. Sweet, caramel flavor with some roasted malts and a little dms. Some bitterness shows up towards the end. Full-bodied, quite dry. A decent one, but I could easily do without the DMS. 100327

0.5l bottle that ogivlado got and shared with me (thanks!)
After a dunkel from Weissenoher, another dunkel from Weissenoher. Ah, well. They look similar too, big thick tan head that went away at a medium pace perching on top of a red-amber body. Light coffeeish, slightly chocolatey nose is quite familiar too. Still, the taste sets it clearly apart from the Kloster-Sud. Chocolate, raisins, malt, light, maybe too light, nice, simple drinkable dunkel.
