3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red ruby color. Small head with staying power. Sweet malty smell with some sugar. Tastes of caramel, coffee, bread, prunes and a hint of dryness. No hint of alcohol, something I wouldn’t expect from a 5,6 ABV beer. I’d reccommend it.

500 ml bottle. Dark brown. Aroma is faint, but the taste is full bodied: malt, caramel, a hint of prunes, not overly sweet. Alcohol taste is well hidden for a 5,6% beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big beige coarseish head. Dark red body with vigourous carbonation. Mealy fruity grainy aroma with sugary notes. Sweetish dry watery mealy roasty wild berry taste with strawy notes. Mid-bodied. Smooth, buttery mouthfeel. Dry strawy roasty aftertaste with vegetable notes. It’s not bad, but certainly not good, either. (0.5l bottle from some Tallinn grocery story.)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 0.5 l, Tallinn. Deep red, lacy off white/beigish head. Mild nose of roasted malts, cola, syrup, dark berries/wine gum. Somehow appealing. Flavor is mildly roasted, fresh, syrupy with a bit of dark berry wine gums and subtly bitter hops. Close to some north german dunkler bocks, not remarkably sweet. Good and nicely complex, altho quite mild overall. One of the better dunkels.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle) Clear, dark brown colour with a medium-sized beige foamy head. Discreet aroma of dark and toasted malt, also bready with light notes of caramel and a soft hoppy touch. Light-sweet flavour, quite slim bodied for a brew of 5.6% abv; moderate carbonation. Toast-malty taste with light notes of sour dough and caramel; moderately dry, bitter-sweet finish with a light hoppy blend. Average Dunkel (18.04.07).
