2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Tapped) Dark reddish color with a large head. Faint, earthy aroma with some roasted malt. Sweet, caramel-syrupy oatmeal-porridge flavor. Light to medium-bodied, sugary and low-carbonated palate. A good looking dunkel, but unfortunately spoiled with excess sweetness for the quite watery body. Not well-balanced.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This bottle of Zubr Schwarz from a Kaiser’s, and 4.6%, MHD 01.08.12. Not sure how, in the land of the historical Reinheitsgebot and matching attitudes [though I guess Berlin was never really a fan of the law], the appropriate authorities can even consider importing something listing "Zuckercouleur" as an ingredient. Nose full of nice roast, relatively little sweetness. Pours a dark mahogany with a soapy tan head. Taste is lightly sweet, medially bitter, and bracingly artificial. Light nuts, strong roast, dry aftertaste, medium body, and some real nastiness here.

On tap at Dronning Louise, Esbjerg. Pours almost black with a solid firm off-white head. Nice dark light roasted aroma together with some liquorice notes, lovely. Taste is full of the same dark light roasted malts, dark chocolate and liquorice. Light sticky mouthfeel. Lingering light sweet/roasted aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle (3.8%, 9.99°) courtesy of ogivlado who shared it with me and heavy (thanks!)
Poured a dark cola colour with a slightly off white thick head. Dusty, heavy nose of coffee and milk caramel. The taste is nice and coffeeish, somewat dusty, underlying (something). All in all a very nice dunkel that I enjoyed after a row of so and so beers that day.
