Draft at the abbey. Poured nicely but seemed a thin mouthfeel for a dunkel. Hints of chocolate and malt were nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark malty aroma; some tootsie roll like chewy chocolate. Deep brown color with soft off-white head. Overall light flavor with a touch of roastiness from the dark malt, very clean almost steril (thanks again reinheitsgebot).
Notes: Bottle found at one of the local schnapps stores in Berkastel-Kues

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Toffee color. Big tan/khaki head with a bit of lacing as it slowly dies down. Huge acetic, sour aroma. And nail polish and malt. That sourness comes through slightly in the mouth as well. So much so that it overpowers the hint of malt that is in there. Not good. Can’t finish this one unfortunately.

Smal light brown head. Perfect red-amber color. Very good maltarom. No sweetness and big drinkabillity.

Prefer this over the helles even though it is less complex. Just beautiful little flavors. Sweet, iron, chalk. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark brown that you can see a bit through with a lacy thin off-white lasting thin head. Smells of malt, caramel and a light vegetable. A slight musky. Medium tart frothy body with a bit too much carbonation. Light smoked and roast with lots of malt and a sour dry aftertaste.
