3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown-teak with fluffy cream head. Chocolate nose, medium body, light carbonation, high residual sweetness but balancing malt astringency and hop dryness. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color of the beer is a reddish brown with a thick off-white head, and the aroma is strongly of roasted chocolate malts, fig, and dough. The taste is mildly sweet and slightly umami, but the palate fuses a soft carbonation, an astringent yet abrupt finish, medium body, and a creamy texture.

Dark brown with tan head. Smells of caramel. Taste of caramel and a bit raisen. Reminds me of Germany. Yes, I know it is from Austria.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma maltato, caramellato. Colore marrone con un bel cappello di schiuma persistente. L’assalto al palato è dominato dal malto, supportato da una dose leggera di luppolatura. Una birra caramellata e dolce come ci si aspetterebbe da una Dunkel. Un buona bevuta.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0.5 L.
Brown body with reddish shadings; medium, creamy, tan head, mostly lasting with some lacing.
Moderate-to-hesvy aroma of dark roasted malts with notes of nuts, caramel and maybe raisins.
Mainly sweet flavour, nicely balanced by a bitter note that becomes dominating in the finish.
Medium body with an oily texture; some soft carbonation is felt.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, deep brown with a yellowish-tan head that dissipates quickly, leaving little lacing. Lots of things going on in the aroma, especially as the beer warms a bit. Bready Munich malt, chocolate, molasses, nutty and a strong sweet smell.
Tatse: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is not a Munich Dunkel style. There’s some rye malt character there with a weaker hop profile, much like a Euro-style Dark Lager. Whether it fits the Munich Dunkel taste profile exactly or not, this is an awesome beer, in my opinion! Grainy, malty, bready flavors with hints of dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar and ripe fruity flavors. Yummy! Medium bodied with a light-to-medium carbonation level, making it silky smooth. No alcohol warmth detected.
Overall, this was a great beer for a great price! I paid $2.39 for a single 500 ml bottle. I will definitely buy this one again.
