3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Thanks for sharing Chris! Aroma percolate of soft, supple caramel and toaste german malts. Plenty of earthy sugars, yet subdued in a lager fashion. Sweet. Clear mahogany with gold edges and a rim of off-white. A well, attenuated dunkel, brimming with woody grain sugars, baked cookies, light chocolates and toothy candy. A bit of peaches, plums and sweet sheeting. There’s some sense of flavor reduction through heavy filtering.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Toasted malt aroma with a touch of butterscotch and some floral hops. Some tobacco/raisin in there as well. Clear, darkish amber with a lasting, off-white cover that left little patches of foam on the walls. Nice toasty flavour reminiscent of an altbier, but with a bit more nutty. Subdued hops in the flavour, which I like in this style. Light to medium body with medium carbonation and a nuttly finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2007 Bottled. A clear red/brown beer with a medium sized and persistent beige head. the aroma is malty, nutty and caramellish with toasted notes and some herbal hops. The flavour is quite powerful and very malty. There are the usual notes of nut, caramel and toasted bread, perfectly balanced by a more than decent herbal hoppiness in the final. medium body, but fuller than I first remebered, average to lively carbonation, very little acidity, quite long aftertaste. The bitterness is higher than your average dunkel. Probably the best beer I have tried in this style together with the Ayinger’s one. An excellent beer, has all you can ask in a dunkel.
