Bottle. Dark brown beer with a strongish head. The aroma is malty, and the flavour is roasted, and bitter with a malty finish. Overall a reasonable well flavoured malty and roasted beer.

500ml bottle (CWAF2013, Thurs)
Rich malty aroma. Big malty body. Full malty finish. As a malt-head, this pressed my buttons and gave me everything I want in a dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 50cl. Clear amber brown color, small sizzling creamy off-white head, disappears rather quickly, thin layer remains, fair lacing; rich aroma of roasted malts, bread, brown sugar, licorice, some fruity notes, touch of coffee; taste medium sweet and slightly bitter, roasted malts, bit of coffee; medium to full body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation; finish is mild bittersweet, hint of chocolate, bit peppery, roasty maltiness lingers on. Bit strong for a dunkel, but I don’t mind...

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bue à la brasserie): Une mousse qui se dissipe rapidement laisse les arômes de grains rôtis, torréfiés et de noisettes caramélisés. La texture est pas aussi optimale que certaines Dunkel mais les saveurs compensent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a delicious look. The beer is dark, and has a nice dark amber color in the light and a dark brown color in the dark. The beer is crystal clear. Some tiny bubbles can be seen rising towards the top. On top of the beer, a small layer of rough slightly grayish foam is formed. It collapses quickly, to leave a thin drape. The smell is a little mild, but not bad. There is a nice tiny bitter touch of roasted barley. I also smell some lovely hop aromas. There is a nice bitter aroma and a fruity sweetness. This fruity aroma is lovely, but I can’t really define what it is. Maybe there is a touch of strawberry. The taste is also very nice. There is a firm bitterness, balanced by some malty sweets, a tiny salty touch of roasted barley and a fruity sour twist. The balance is great. The palate of the beer is normal. A bit more kick wouldn’t harm the beer. But like this, it also ain’t bad. Good beer.
