2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 0,50L. Clear amber color with average big, frothy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and milk chocolate. Taste starts light sweet and turns to medium sweet at the finish. There are notes of caramel and milk chocolate in taste, too. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Too sweet for my taste and too weak on the body.

En mild sødlig øl, med meget mild humle. Næsten ingen kulsyre. God smag, dog ikke det store sus.

500ml bottle [No. 2 of a tripartite mini-series kindly donated by bartlebier, thank you very much!]. Clear chestnut colour with ruby red glimmer and huge, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Roasty dark malty aroma with a nuttily touch, some cocoa. Taste is dry dark malty, subtle sweetness, hints of cocoa, a nuttily touch. Clean, precise, well controlled sweetness. Good.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottles 06-07/2015 courtesy of brewery, danke. - Thinner shoesole brown pour, vivid foam. Dry roast and a fruity acidity of apple peel and chestnut in the nose, very dry toast, shrub and woody caramels in taste. Well drinkable thanks to an attenuated absence of style-typical Dunkel sweetness, with a late grassy hop sting.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark amber from bottle with robust tan head. Nice malty aroma though let the beer warm a bit to get the full effect. Taste is not the greatest though. Heavily carbonated, watery hints of adjuncts, malty flavor somewhat suppressed and potent though transient noble hop bitterness at the end. Body dominated by carbonation. Overall the malt flavor just didn't punch through as with other dark lagers. Wouldn't buy again.
