2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Browny head which pass off immeadiately. Dark red watery body, not a dunkle-style. As i pour it down, tiny bubbles sit in the glass inside. Light sweet maltyness, but it is strained to be drinkable. Pale caramel notes. It’s an artifical sweeteners.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a deep brown, almost black with a small beige head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt and chocolate. Wow this is one sweet tasting beer. There is distinct flavours of roasted malt and caramel. Absolutely no bitterness and at 3,4% ABV...obviously no alcohol present. Not balanced whatsoever and unfortunately, a little bit too sweet for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
19/02 0.5 l bottle Doggythedog brought from Graz, thanks for sharing! It poured a reddish brown body with small head that went down fast. Aroma was quite unimpressive, some sweet malts and strangely spiced. Flavor is quite expecting for a doppelmalz, burnt sugar, caramel and some woody spice making it not so sweet as the examples of the style could be. Relatively full bodied, specially when you take into account it’s just 3,4% ABV. Finish was short and sugary, unfortunately with a touch of metal. Fine one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle purchased somewhere in/near Graz, shared with heavy. Poured a brown/red body with a small white head. Typical dark malt nose, caramel, a bit dry. The taste is quite sweet and malty, milk caramel, woody (slightly ashy)... cleaner and dryer than most of these "doppelmalz dunkels", less sweet and more drinkable because of that, closer to refreshing than most of these ever get. No hop. Overall, ok.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 3.4%. Weak caramelly bread aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small tan head. The flavour starts off a little sweet, there is a little dark bread. The finish is drier, and this is where the low ABV shines through a little. Quite decent, still. Especially considering the low ABV.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Chestnut-amber coloured, smaller, quickly diminishing off-white head; quite sweetish, caramelly nose with a touch like Coca-cola; solid sweet flavour, light bodied; sweet caramelly finish with a little bitterness in the aftertaste. So sweet, so boring......

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
[tap(?) at a restaurant in Vienna]
Fruity, sweet cherry aroma; a combination of gingerale and cherry lifesavers. Clear dark brown with nice, clingy beige foam. Sticky sweet as though the beer was seriously underattenuated and with a harsh bitterness. Revolting. Medium body, cloying sweetness, even a bit astringent.

Very dark red. Malt aroma. Full bodied and sweet. There is malt and ripe fruit. The sugar is not overpowering, this is a night change of pace.
