Tap at the brewery. Orange-brown with a tall, airy head and slight, slow bubbles. Nose of toffee, coffee, brown sugar. A bit faint. Toasty, slightly roasty flavor; somewhat stout-like. Dry toast, caramel, coffee, oranges, peaches. Prickly finish with a bit of cinnamon. Dry and drinkable though not hugely interesting.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 From tap at the brewery in Stegaurach. Clear dark brown with a lasting off-white head. Aroma impression is dark, toasty malt with notes of just-burnt bread crust and oily toasted almonds, while aroma hops are herbal and floral, along with the dark malt it gives the impression of anise / licorice. There’s also that distinct and pleasant mineral character that’s unique to Franconia. Medium bodied with noticeable malt richness, it’s lightly sweet with low bitterness, malt is somewhat chewy but the sugar level is moderate to low. In the mouth it’s more of a basic dark caramel syrup and caramelized sugar / pancake batter character, though the toasted grain and bread quality is still present, just not at the level found in the nose. Medium-low silky carbonation presents the malt well, it’s nicely soft and creamy with good flavor balance and no off-notes. It’s not the most expressive Dunkel but like the other Muller products it’s well-made and clean, it smells and drinks wonderfully. The flavor is almost an 8 but there’s a soft touch of what I describe as tootsie roll or caramel chew candy that keeps it at a 7. Still, this could easily be an everyday Dunkles for me, and exceeds the quality of nearly every off the shelf brown ale and dark lager made back in the states. Muller Debring is becoming one of my top-tier Bamberg-area breweries and should not be missed if you’re in the area for beer. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 14, 2014
