JorisPPattyn (10004) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2007
Huge fine & dense cream-yellow head over red-shot amber-brown beer. Caramel, dark malts and a bit vinous nose (which is rare in German beers). Also an aroma as from ivy leaves. Dry, leafy taste, old but wet brown bread, and a pinch of caramel at the end. Surprisingly little sweetness. Long dry, woody finish. Dry but medium bodied at least. No new aftertaste, finish goes on long enough. Quite good Dunkel. Products from this brewery seem to vary quite a lot, in my (limited) experience.

Bottle (Merci, Jonas !) Deep chestnut-amber coloured, mid-sized slightly lacing stable tanned head; dryish caramelly-toasty nose with a nutty touch; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, soft MF; a chocolatey touch shows up in the malty-caramelly finish. Very good Dunkles.........

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2017
My Bottom Line:
Raisins, cherries and nutty caramel conjure up an efficient pint of Dunkel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the misty auburn.
-Mouthfeel is on the dry side for the style.
-Malt flavors are well developed.
-Drinkability is high.
-Hops build a subtle wooden finish.

On tap at the Hüber restaurant in Freising.

(Flasche) Es ist mittelbraun gefärbt mir einem leicht rötlichen Einstich. Es ist klar filtriert und hat eine fast weiße Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist sehr süß bis Honigartig und malzig mit einer minimalen Röstnote. Der Geschmack ist wie das Aroma. Es ist keine Bittere zu schmecken und die Karbonisierung ist durchschnittlich. Zusammengefasst ganz lecker.
