bottle, picked up at pivoteka in pilsen. quite dark for the style, brown with a touch of purple around the edges; surprisingly roasty aroma and suggestions of oatmeal stout; nice caramelised soy flavours and decent bitterness. a rich and stocky version of a dunkel and all the more enjoyable for it Quack-Duck (9540) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2009
bottle, bought at Markthalle Abensberg. Clear dark brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Intensive aroma of roasetd malts. Malty, with intensive flavours of roasetd malt and caramel. Medium-bodied, pleasantly hoppy with hints of dark chocolate and cocoa powder in the lingering finish. A delicious Dunkel. MartinT (10155) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:jfb (6984) - GERMANY - NOV 26, 2013
Earthy hops join toasted and nutty malts until wooden bitterness seals this gentle Dunkel.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam tops the dark brown with ruby highlights.
-Light cherry-like Munich malt fruitiness appears in the middle.
-Mouthfeel is silky and very drinkable.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
