Nocturne (1172) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2015
Keg at Piccadilly Tap, Manchester. Dark reddish brown. Short golden head. Some lacing. Earthy, lightly toasted malts. Notes of toffee and a kind of winey fruitiness beneath it all. Pretty sweet though; I wasn’t really prepared for that. Decent for the style.

bartholos (100) - GERMANY - JUL 1, 2015
Bottle. Probably on of the best Dunkel in the world and one of my favorite beers. The Barock pours dark amber colored and clear with a long lasting full fine-frothy tan head. The aroma that gets into the nose already gives and great impression of the richness and complexity of this beer. The sweet smell comes along with strong notes of honey and sherry, as well as some hints of plum. In the back lays a spicy foundation brought by the hops. While the honey and sherry notes also dominate the flavor and are accompanied by malty sweetness, more and more hoppier notes of spices and herbs also make the Barock more dry and bitter. While the aroma and taste is complex the body is surprisingly light but well structured with medium carbonation. Because of that is mouthfeel is slightly fizzy and crisp and give the Barock a refreshing character. Finally the finish is bitter-dry and leaves a pleasant and long dry aftertaste which keeps the honey and sherry notes. Highly recommended!

CapFlu (4785) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2015
Lasting frothy white head atop a brown body. Nose of Banana loaf. Decent nutty malt flavour with a bready malt base. Very clean and has a peat finish. Good stuff. Thanks Jonas.

Aika bulkki kamaa taas. Ei näistä taida mistään mihinkään olla. Kyllä tällä pärjää, mutta älä näitä enää osta. Ei jatkoon

jamaty (1248) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Un dedo de espuma parda, que retiene bastante. Aroma a malta y café. En boca mįs seca que dulce, aunque el café es el principal dominante. También caramelo. Bien balanceada y bebible.

Maybe one of the top 3 beer I have ever had. A tremendously nutty taste that is full of sweet and sharp notes. A must have.

Sublirony (41) - SINGAPORE - JUN 4, 2015
Draft, Restaurang Rauhrackel, Lund. Pours a lovely dark, clear black: almost translucent. Very nice big head, not overwhelming. Whiffs of banana, even some berries. Very clean, rich and smoky in the mouth, determinedly old-fashioned, extremely well-balanced easy-drinking, great food beer. Very good Dunkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (4034) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2015
Pours clear mahogany with a thick, frothy, and rather persistent light tan head. Malty aroma has a strong caramel component and subtle fruity and floral tones. Pleasing flavor rolls caramel, toasted malt, apple, pear, and even a little woody hops across the palate. Body and fizz are not strong, but finish is pleasing. Zehr gut Bier!

Foerdifuxx (37) - Franconia, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2015
Pours a ruby colour with a not very long lasting tan head. aromas of malt, dark fruits, raisins and sweet chocolate comes into mind. Flavours of malt, toffee and some herbal hops with a overall dry finish. Good one.
