(0.5L Bottle) Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel. Decent blend of roasted malts also hint at toffee, smoke and fruit. Overall pretty good. A bit sweet, but not bad at all.

Draught from a 5 litre party keg. Dark red, almost brown, with a huge tan head that fades quickly. Low carbonation, which somehow spoiled the palate. The aroma features a fruity yeast. Roasted malt, toffee, nuts in the flavour, also a bit of dark chocolate. The finish is long and smooth. Very drinkable high quality Dunkel.

500 ml bottle. Ruby red. Clear and with a thick fine-laced head. The head falls down quite rapidly, but had this creamy feel to it. The combination of a ruby red beer and a creamy head is really enticing. Sweet malty, very bock-like, aroma. Notes of old leather and toffee. Gentle carbonation with fine soft bubbles. Thick mouthfeel for a beer this low in alcohol. A little hop bitterness can be felt throughout.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark red, huge head that falls fast, no laces; Strange nose, deep and warm but initially with tones of cabbage, when the beer gets a little air it turns to brown bread, and a very distinctive fresh barley; Super balanced body, great carbonation, a bit thin; turning into bitter quite long finish, quite simple but very deep mostly malt. All in all a very well balanced beer that could use a bit more character.

Clean and creamy, with some nice dark bready flavor. Rich caramel maltiness, slightly roasted with a wonderful mouthfeel, a true pleasure to drink.
