PotjeBier (3769) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2016
Old notes. Tap @ the brewery. Brown color. Head leaves a thin layer. Aroma’s: roasted malts, light sweet malty. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasted. Body is thin. Long finish that starts roasted and develops towards a moderate bitterness. Ritzn (1890) - GERMANY - MAR 28, 2016
Between black and dark red. Dark fruit, caramel and citrussy hops. Also very sweet and surprisingly sour. Pretty much no bitterness. The main reason I didn’t like it is the combination of maltiness and sourness. TAR (2793) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Draft at the brewpub in Nov. 2015: Deep rust. Custardy uniform cap of froth. Expressively malty, nut-rich aromas of darkened piecrust, fallen leaves, chocolate-covered hazelnuts, pecan, toast and toffee. Soft, fine carbonation. Ripe splash of black plum flavors dovetails with a javalike maltiness. Intricately malty, with breadcrust and elegant whispers of toffee causing the mouth to water. Minerals pierce the malt and help lighten the body. Soft, vanilla-cookie pils malt adds yet more layers to the toffee, cocoa and coffee interplay. Deep malt extraction yields a maltiness that’s rich to the point of being smoky. Understated plum notes also help add lift, but by no means weigh the body down or impede the exquisite malt. Clean, well balanced finish of hazelnuts and cocoa. As with the Edel-Pils and Bock, here is another polished quaffable creation from a very clean brewer. fdomig (1028) - München, GERMANY - FEB 6, 2016

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Draft at the brewery in Regensburg. Clear cola with a fine tan head. Chocolate, dust, toasted grain maltiness with touches of marzipan and black cherry. Medium bodied, sweet, low bitterness, low acid, clean, creamy, fluffy and soft, highly toasted bread crust, subtle chocolate, light touch of toosite roll chew chocolate character. Very similar malt character to the dunkler bock, but more subtle and restrained. The_Osprey (9343) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2015

Keg at GBBF 2015. It pours clear deep brown with a decent beige head. The nose is sweet, toasty, brown bread, fruit cake, dried fruit and light spice. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, earthy roast, fruit cake, peppery spice, charred stuff, brown bread with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Simple, easy - going funnel. Marko (6163) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 4, 2015
Bottled. Thanks heavy! Poured a dark bronze body with a small off white head. Sweet aloma, chocolate and malt, dry, lovely. Light, nice dry chocolate taste, a bit on the lighter side, dry finish, almost no aftertaste. Vaguely creamy, vaguely herbal, vaguely soapy, vaguely bitter. Surprisingly good dunkel all in all. Great job! wheresthepath (2405) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Keg at Reading BF. Reddish-brown with a thick cream head. Rather thin and fizzy. A little caramel and a little nutty dryness. On the bland side but inoffensive.
