4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From Bottle. Poured reddish brown. Huge foamy looking caramel head. Aroma was nicely blended scents of toffee, caramel, dark fruits, malt. Flavors again meshed very well, not overbearing. Chocolate, malt, toffee, tiny fruit hints, with a nice lingering sweet toffee-ish aftertaste. Medium bodied. Well-balanced. Excellent dunkel.

Very enjoyable beer, especially served in the dimpled mug. Not overly strong, but a nice dark fruits flavour is apparent

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy red-brown. Head is large and khaki. Aroma is toffee, caramel, spiced pit fruits and lightly of smoke/savory stew. Texture is medium. Flavor is pit fruit malt, coffee, chocolate, toffee, caramel, beef stock, peat and smoke. Very complex, but never heavy, oily or strong. Superbly balanced and "just right". About halfway through the bottle I broke out crackers and smoked gouda. Not typical for me to eat with my beer. But I can just imagine being in Germany, pounding these with hamburgers, steaks and bbq chicken every meal. That’d be awesome.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (from bitter virtue). Toffee and malt with dried fruit and nuts. Despite the sweet flavours it doesnt drink quite as sweetly as I would have imagined. Light roasty bitterness helps round it off. Quite nice.

Rated 2005-04-30. Dark brown and red in color, pretty thick beige head which lowers pretty fast, tiny lace. Aroma is bit roasted, coffee, dark chocolate, caramelly and sweet with notes of nut. Medium bodied. Roasted, coffee-like, chocolaty, bit sweet and creamy flavor with notes of rye. Long and bit smoky finish. Very good and complex dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours a clear, deep copper with a beige head. Malty, a bit roasted aroma. Malty and grainy flavor. Medium body. Malt, caramel and some hops in the finish. Definately not bad, but maybe a bit on the malty side, yet it could use some more body, flavor and alcohol. (070404)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Brew Wharf at London Bridge, dark brown with a large foamy tan head. A nutty malt aroma with a hop sweetness. Very malty flavour and an effervescent light palate. I had higher expectations.
