COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

marv3mania (185) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 29, 2013
500 ml bottle poured into pint glass. Appearance is dark ruby/brown with very thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is rich toffee and caramel with a slight plum scent as well. Taste is similar, though less strong and with a distinct lager taste. Smooth, lightly carbonated feel. I was expecting a bit more chocolate, but otherwise about what I expected. A good, though somewhat weak, beer.

martpez (282) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2017
Wonderful amber red colour lovely texture too. Texture is a touch metallic with this bottle though. Some roasted malts coming through with very little in the way of a hoppy character except a mild dry finish at the end. Decent. Would like to try this on tap to get a better grasp of its character.

0.5 l bottle from ’REWE Budnik & Homberg’, best before November 2017. Clear, dark reddish amber with a medium large, dense, stable, off-white head. Sweetish, malty, slightly roasty and a little grassy-spicy aroma of caramel, toasted nuts, some chocolate and hints of straw. Quite sweet, malty, slightly roasty and even a bit fruity taste of caramel, raisins, toasted nuts, some prunes and a touch of straw, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a bit roasty and a little grassy-spicy finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very nice Dunkel, really tasty, quite deep for the style as well.
