(Bottle, 0.5 l, at One Pint Pub, 20130720) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had caramell, toasted malts and grass. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were toasted malts, caramell, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Nice balanced dunkel with not too much sweetness.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2013 Bottle bought in Bamberg. Pours a deep almost mahogany brown with a tight taupe foam and a nose of roast caramel with a faint hint of nuts and cocoa. Palate is roasty and burnt malty, a little very faintly tart wineyness, maybe a touch of liquorice in the bitter finish. Nice, but the burnt bitterness is a little overpowering. A second bottle was far better - still roasty and malty, but now with a touch of plumminess, smooth and hoppy, without the burnt bits. kapusil (1561) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 22, 2013

Bottle by 13.2.13. Nose has some faint caramel and roast, sweet. Pours a deep dark mahogany with a foamy tan head. Taste is very sweet and lightly tart, fainter bitterness that picks up with time, nutty with roast and light chocolate. Light/watery body and sugary cling on the teeth, find the extreme sweetness and sourness hard to reconcile. Mariusz (12300) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 21, 2012
