2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Hmmm. I remember really liking this a lot when I first tried it at the Concordia club in 2002, whilst watching the GErmans down the Saudis 8-0. I suppose I mustn’t have tried many decent dark beers at that time, because it seems pretty ho-hum now. Sweetness is about right, some nuttiness and malty character, caramel at a stretch.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a pretty solid dunkel lager. Nice malty presence with notes of molasses and a bit of nuttiness. A bit on the sweet side (not much hop bitterness to balance things out). Smooth and easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown color. A little caramel flavor. Really it's boring. Thier nothing to complain about, but thier nothing to cheer about. Just average malt and hop flavors. Boring

3.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Well I had this on tap so it tasted very fresh. I think it was a little to heavy for me. I like certain dark beers but if they have too thick of consistancy I don’t enjoy them. It was a good color and scent It was just hard to drink though the flavor itself was not terrible.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer pours a dark amber color that is slightly transparent with a medium white head and no lacing on the glass. There really isn't any aroma that I can find. The flavor is sweet and has a slightly carmel-like taste. Very good and pretty smooth. Slightly dry aftertaste. Good beer for drinking several of but it doesn't have a ton of special character.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma was WOW, malty and chocolately with a strong depth of character and a nutty and toasty Munich malt presence. The aroma had a light bit of spicy hop nature and even a light smoky phenolic. Complex and interesting! The beer poured into the glass crystal clear amber brown with a beige/tan well lasting head which rose tall and fell very slowly to lace the glass. The flavor was nicely malty with more toasty and nutty Munich malt characteristics and a lightly spicy hop character with decent bittering which kept the caramel of the malt in check. The flavor contained a light bit of that same smoky phenolic which added depth to the beer. The finish was dry with lasting flavors lingering into the aftertaste. The body was medium with a moderate level of carbonation and an almost creamy nature on the palate. This one is a winner folks, getcha some! 12 ounce green bottle.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 Comprata stamattina a 0.79€ alla Dico e subito provata a pranzo.E tenuto conto che giusto accanto,nello stesso scaffale c’era la Ichnusa prezzata a 1.50€ ed una lager della Damm,la Gold Star Premium,ad 1€ credo proprio di aver scelto la meglio che il supermercato offriva.
Colore marrone scuro con discreta schiuma beige chiara,aroma di malto tostato,caffè e sentori di caramello.Sapore dolce,sembra cioccolato o forse caffèlatte però piacevole.Nel complesso una discreta birra.
