My first Dunkel. Malty as expected, but not too sweet, more like toffee and raising than chocolate. Nice hop notes in there too, giving it some nice bitterness to keep you on your toes. Could be improved by making it more complex, but as is it is highly enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a dark brown with some light head which quickly dissipates. A dark malty aroma is present, though its not significant. Taste has a significant malty sweetness to it, with some light notes of coffee coming through on the aftertaste. I also get a lot of bread dough in this one. The carbonation is rather rough on the palate, taking away a good bit from making this beer easily drinkable.

The epitome of German dunkles. Solid full bodied crisp taste with a malty finish. Light fizzy creamy head.

Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste follows the nose but it disappears quickly, not bad but watery.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rødlig brun med et kortvarigt cremebrunt skum. Duften er præget af malt. Smagen er livlig med en karamelagtig sødme, der hurtigt overdøves af brændt malt. Eftersmagen er maltfyldig og får bitterhed både fra brændt malt og humle.
Smager nærmest som en sød version af en schwartzbier.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicious. Dark, slightly sweet, some fruitiness. As the description says, it is very mild, but found it very drinkable, with a good aftertaste. Although it is mild and a bit thin, overall a good dunkel. Very tasty.

Very mild brew here; some malty flavor without being overly strong, roasted earthy dirt flavor, mouthfeel is very flat without any appreciable head after a few minutes.

Beautiful dark brownish red. Sugary aroma. When touched to the lips, a definite butterscotch taste. Followed by some caramel and chocolate. Frothy head which disapates rather quickly.
