2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0,33 l bottle. Oooops, an unclear amber in the glass. Small foamy head. Sweet bisquit caramell on the nose. Taste is a total sweet caramell with a lot of bisquit, little bit tart in the background. Not really what you would expect from a Dunkel, but okay in it´s way.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Maker: Klüvers Brauhaus, Neustadt, Germany. ***
Beer: Klüvers Dunkel (bottled, 330ml) ***
Style: German Dunkles ***
ALC.VOL.: 5.0% ABV ***
Colour: Hazy medium(!) amber, with a medium, fluffy off-white head. ***
Aroma: Caramel, cereal, roasted malts. ***
Texture: Medium body, not fizzy, active carbonation. ***
Taste: Bread and toasted malt notes in the beginning, slight toffee. More bitter towards the middle, roasted malts now dominant. Nuts and malts in the finish. Medium-long aftertaste of toffee and roasted malt. ***
Impressions: Very indicidual interpretation of a "Dunkles" (and not really as dunkel as Dunkels go). Still, very well balanced, with appealing nut and toffee flavours. More like an ale, really.

Bottle from trade with Pivnizub, many thanks Guenther. Hazy amber brown color with thick persistent off-white head. Malty aroma. Taste, malt, caramel, roasted notes, yeast. Doesn’t fit to style, but despite that not tasty beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with airy off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with touches of caramel and hops. Bitter, hoppy onset, quickly replaced by quite sweet notes of caramel malt and yeast. Bitter and estery aftertaste. OK but not what I understand as Dunkel.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(bottle, 33cl, as Küstendunkel, 5.0% abv) Hazy, dark amber colour with a big and slightly tanned foamy head. Slightly ashy malty aroma with doughy notes, traces of caramel and a tinge of metal. Mildly sweet and slightly roasty bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly roasted malty taste with notes of caramel, a shy nutty touch and herbal hops far in the background; the latter getting slightly stronger towards the bitter-sweet finish. Despite its rather weak aroma a drinkable Dunkel. 02.V.14
