On tap, Hofbrauhaus, Munich. Served in a 1L dumpled mug. Dark ruby but a bit light body, sweety but a bit watery taste. Aftertaste is a bit like stone, like a stonebier or gösser zwickl.I have expected a lot more from it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Cavie. Red-brown pour with an off-white head. A 95 percentile dunkel that lets the skunk slip as soon as I pop the top. No bottle date. Green bottle. I shouldn’t be surprised. Aroma is skunk, roast, and chocolate, and cheap cigars. Taste is steamed veggies, roast, thin chocolate, and a little metallic.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Rhine Haus in St. Louis. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber with a small beige head. Aroma of caramel malts, toasted nuts, brown sugar, earth- very toasty. Same for the flavor, with a bigger dose of nuts and earth to go along with the toast and caramel and mild spice. Medium-bodied, with a toasty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice dunkel.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pours amber copper with off white head. Aromas light of toasted grain with a very light fruit. The taste is smooth but deceptive with a touch of fruit and a full grain taste. The palate is easy but the spice and herbal hop softness fills it out compared to other German dunkel lagers. Enjoyable for sure.
