3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle at Krah-Krah in Vienna. A beer than illustrates neatly the limitations to the term Dunkel. Near-black, heavily caramelled with a touch of black asphalt, but not too sweet. Bitterness virtually absence but a bit of hop aroma. A must-have in Austria.

Bot, finally a chance to taste the notorious hirter dunkle. 11 oz bottle, how come those euroguys always try to rip us yankies off for an ounce? In my little sniffer this has a very mild malt nose. Nice and dark, looks like a dark american lager. Personality is a little more than a typical mild dark lager, has a tad of that baltic thang goin on here. After I get over the initial baltiness of it all it then settles down to stripped shucked attitude about it. In the background, I may detect a hair of smoke, but now I think I just imagined it. AH! I think I taste the soft mountain spring water used in the brewing which has been left to mature in a none GMO prolonged aging process, go figger. I’m liking these mild darker beers, so much more enjoyable than a stupid baltic, foreign imp stout porter, heheheh.

On tap at Krah, krah, Vienna, Austria. February 2014. Shared with lovely Anja. Dark red to dark brown color, lasting off-white head. Faint aroma, malts and caramel. Strong toffee flavor, nuts, caramel, some bitterness in the finish. Light body, soft carbonation, drinkable, a bit bland. Good Dunkel and a drinkable brew.

Red-brown with a frothy tan head.
Caramel malt, chocolate aroma.
Taste is dark bread, caramel malt, raisin.
An older bottle, so a bit of oxidation in scent and flavour.....and a little flat.
Nothing exciting......probably pretty solid when fresh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild aroma with a brown dark color, also mild taste of roasted malt. Easy to drink and not very lasting on a tong. Not bad but noting special

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice dark cola color with minimal white head. Aroma is kinda weak, but sweet caramel comes through. Nice hazelnut peanuty malt character. Chocolate and roasted malts. Nice finish. Slight bitterness at the end, but not too dry, leaves the palate wet and satiated. A nice dunkel from Austria.
