Malty and thick as one would expect from the style. The hops bitterness is more cloying than balanced. A fairly one dimensional malt profile. Aroma isn't unpleasant and color is gorgeous deep brown caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared a 50cl bottle. Pours a clear brown colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is caramel, roasted and malty. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is medium bitter and light sweet with a long dry finish. Overall, a very good beer with a much lighter body than thought in the first place.

monk191 (722) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Not a great beer, not bad or distasteful, just boring. Pours a very nice clear red with a thin white head. A bit of malt in the smell. Taste is really bland, almost like water with a hint of malt, and a weird bready finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle, pours amber with a light brown head, slightly sweet malty with some chocolate and a little bit of bitterness. Nice beer.

bartlebier (1162) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2014
50cl bottles, Maruhn 2013. World class dunkel, setting old new Old World subtle standards in chocolate roast and dryness while remaining very sessionable at under 5%. Heiße Maroni, undercurrents of bock fruitiness. Pinnacle of back-to-basics bottom-fermenting, liquid elegant simplicity. Is it a coincidence that this is the 2nd world-class brewery in Kelheim with a flavour/yeast profile wholly its own?

Lemke10 (680) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2014
This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight, foamy head. The aroma is inviting with toasted malts and hazelnut tones. This is highly drinkable with a smooth texture and a decent sweet grain taste that is perfect for the style. Very well made and delicious.

djoeye (889) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
Aroma; tannins, roasted malts, spices, notes of leather, egg, earthy notes, hints of rotten potato, but most of all herbs and spices. Beige to off white head, brown red body, some dots and even curtain down the mug. Taste; confectionery, caramel malts, chocolate, butter caramel, To palate easy, balanced, carbonated as it feels a bit foamy-creamy. Finishes with malts, dark fruits, roasted grains, tasty. Overall worth an award. Ein sehr schönes Dunkelbier! Vielen Dank! 1/2L brown bottle 4.7% b@Kilpishalli, tasted@home Norway, listening to Carl Orff - O Fortuna ~ Carmina Burana.
