Pours a brown color with a white head. Has a sweet hoppy aroma. Has a sweet flavor, mild chocolate and nut accents and some mild bitterness. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Not a bad beer at all. Both draft & bottle(if fresh)
It has a bit of a sweet taste & more aftertaste than I want but all in all most fair. I like warsteiner dunkel much better though..

UPDATED: APR 21, 2008 I really liked this beer. Reminds me of a dopplebock but with less going on. Would like to try on tap - only had from bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Old rating off a pile of forgotten notes. Pours clear dark amber with a thin off-white head. Light body, active carbonation. Light aroma of nuts. Taste is similarly light. Not a lot here.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, golden at the edges, average whitish head. Sweet caramel aroma, perhaps a little bready. Straightforward caramel malt palate, brown sugar perhaps. Not bad, flavourful but not terribly complex. Maybe mine was too cold...

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Part of a winter sampler, it’s a fairly nice Dunkel. Not much involved in the bland aroma, some faint caramel is present along with a metallic tinge. Dark murky pour with a half-inch vibrant tan head and spotty lacing. Very drinkable, clean with a nice aftertaste along with a mild bitterness. Flavor is subdued brown sugar and caramel malt, toffee and buttered toast. Lightly hopped with a nice balance.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Almost ruby in color. Smells malty and tastes malty. Not really my cup of tea so to speak. Very sweet flavor with a light, crisp finish.

It has a gorgeous cream head that matches the color perfectly. I wasn’t a great fan but this beer did surprise me.
