3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a copper colour, quite pale for a dunkel (at least in my expieriance). A sweet aroma but an almost salty, quite smokey flavour. Quite different from any other beer I’ve tried.

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.
