2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
08-Mar-10 (330-ml bottle: Purchased 09-Feb-10 for $3.99 at Ledger’s Liquor in Berkeley, CA) This pleasant German dunkel pours a rich, clear, medium-brown body and a one inch foam cap that is dark-tan in color and shows good retention, slowly settling to a thin, but complete layer. The nose is very malty with dark bread, light earthiness, milk chocolate and some nuttiness. Fairly bready on the palate, with chocolate, lightly sweet cocoa, toast and nuts, and a hint of grassy hops in the finish. The beer is showing signs of some mild oxidation, enough to be distracting, but not enough to render the beer undrinkable. The oxidation, however, is not the beer’s fault. Light-medium in body, gentle carbonation, and some dryness in the finish. Some spotty lace on the glass. A decent beer, easy to drink and fairly straight forward.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown. Mild toasty nutty flavor up front. Water palate, not a very crisp estery finish, more watery caramel flavor. Decent, but didn’t stand out.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2009 Bottle from Big Lots!. Deep ruby in color on the pour. Sweet chocolate aroma. Smells like a Tootsie Roll. Good chocolate flavors, along with a bit of maltiness. Not very roasty. Smooth mouth feel. Pretty tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Potent bready currant aroma with lots of tobacco and raisins. Dark brown-garnet with an off-white, wispy top. Sweet, biscuity flavour with a little brown sugar, raisins, and lots of bread crust. Low bitterness with balance towards sweet. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet, nutty finish. Probably a very good dunkel, just not a style that I like.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark and very red, thin head. Toffee and faint chocolate in nose. Bit of cinnamon in the palate, a bit toas.ted. Drinkable in a session-sort of way, but certainly nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dunkelbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer und ordentlich bräunlicher Schaum. Röstmalziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist schön malzig, wunderbar zwischen Süße und Würze ausbalanciert. Im Sturz kommt noch eine schöne Hopfennote dazu. Ein gutes Dunkles!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Decent brew. Served with a nice head and good lace. Has a nice dark malty and dark fruity nose. Flavor is similar, Soft palate. Smooth at first going to a light tingle. Finsih is dark malt and a little sweetness. Color is a dark amber brown. Session beer for sure. Would like to try this on draft as well as make beer bread with it.
