2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a 500 ml. euro bottle with a freshness date on the back label.
Poured a ruby hued amber with a small foamy pale tan head that settled into a fine bubbly lacing, minimal amount of laced sticking.
Aromas of cocoa, caramel, minerals, a subtle nuttiness and a tiny bit herbal.
Good moderate carbonation and a softly malty crisp, smooth light-medium bodied mouthfeel.
Pleasant tasting, lightly, lightly roasted malts, cocoa, a coffee caramel, a buried nuttiness, a mineral flavor shows up just after the middle of the taste, a herbal hop flavor, not very potent, and a malty finish with some metallic edges.
Not a great German dunkel, wouldn’t be one of first five choices if I was in a bar or restaurant, but passable drinkability.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of sweet malt and caramel. These are suplemented with some coffee and hops in the flavor. Rather creamy on the palate and finishes off with a nice taste of moderate sweetness and burnt malt. Really a well made Dunkel.
