Sampled at an esbls tasting. Dark brown with lots of cherry red. A malty chocolate aroma. That is exactly the flavor, too. Just not a enough going on.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In aroma this is very heavy on the toffee and caramel, a good sign. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a good palate. Among the best dunkels out there.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep dark ruby beer with a medium to bigger pretty vast and little lively light brown/light tan/creme head.
Smell caramel, toasted malts, sweeter herbs, some slight hints of darker fruit like prunes, figs and raisins, some oatmeal and grains. I got the idea that the smell is a tiny teeny bit withdrawn.
Taste is a very nice, smooth balanced and pretty full tasting mix of caramel, toasted grains, some hints of dark fruit like raisins, herbs, grass, soft like butter, hint of something metal, hint of some (lighty toasted) nuts. A nice bitterness and a nicely balanced mix of darker ingredients.
Medium bitter, herby, dark fruits and toasted grains in the aftertaste.
Low carbo, soft light tingly mouthfeel, medium to a lightly bit fuller body and a light watery/creamy texture.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

( 500ml bottled 03/2008 thanks to bu11zeye) Pours light brown with some bubbles and good lacing. Nose of corn, light chocolate. Semi-sweet chocolate also in the taste. Well carbonated and a light linger that is slightly off.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear bright light chestnut color with just a hint of rudy when held to the light. Moderate ecru colored head. Nice lace. LIghtly toasted malt aromas dominate with hints of cocoa and herbal hops. Somewhat simple, but no faults. Dark caramel sweetness that fades to a black malt bitterness. Quite nutty and lightly salty in the linger. Dry somewhat grassy finish. This is a nice summertime dark lager. Quenching and dry in the finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Deep, thick burgundy-brown with a beige head. Fruity caramel aroma, very mellow and milkshake like. Medium bodied, with some light, watery chocolate tones. Nice and bready, very soft on the palate. Yeasty creaminess really rounds this beer out, and gives it more dimension. Love to have it fresh on tap.
