COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The nose will enjoy pepper and gentle roasting aromas such as cocoa and bitter chocolate. After a crisp initial taste, the malt releases more gentle avours. The texture is dry. A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the nale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

Idiosynkrasie (6714) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear, copperish, faint chestnut colour with average to huge, homogeneous, foamy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Grainy, grassy, typical Hausbrauerei dark malty aroma with silage touch. Taste is surprisingly different, slightly sweet dark malty, hints of malt lozenge and liquorice. Nothing spectacular anyway.

Marduk (6609) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2016
Tap (Lemke brewpub, Berlin). Clear dark amber color. Small size, yellow head, stays. Dirty, faint coffee, caramel, sweet, sourish and tiny bit of vinegar in aroma. Papery and cookies in aroma. Messy one this is. And bland too. And watery. Naah...

ekstedt (6566) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2008
A 10 cl draught sample at the brewpub. Hay copper with medium beige head. Roasted, almost burnt malt aroma with some earthy hops. Ok moothfeel, a bit spritzy. Dry and surpriingly bitter for a dunkel.

BlackHaddock (6557) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
19th Jan 2014 draught 0.3 litres in the breweries large bar under the railway arches near Hachescher Markt S Bahn station. Came in the breweries tall handled tumbler, light amber with a slight haze, white head and a semi-sweet malt leading aroma. Pleasant enough without really doing much. There is a maltiness to the whole beer but it lacked any really deep flavour or depth of character. Refreshing and thirst quenching without testing your taste buds.
Earlier Rating: 3/11/2013 Total Score: 3.7
Drank twice during Feb 2013 in the Dickenstr/rail arches outlet while in Berlin. Impressed, a deep reddy brown body with a full and lasting white head of foam. Malts foremost in the aroma and taste: fairly sweet, caramel and molasses rule here. Body depth was fine: could have been thicker and meatier I suppose, but this is a lager/pilsner based beer and that should be remembered when comparing and rating/reviewing beers. By far the best of the four brews on offer during my visits: I do have a sweet tooth though, so this suited my tastes nicely.

On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy amber-brown colour, white head. Aroma of toast, light burnt caramel, light nutty. Flavour is medium sweet, toast, burnt caramel, light nutty, quite bitter and dry. Light-bodied.

Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2007
Draught at the brauhaus. A brown beer with a big off-white head. The aroma is of caramel malt, light roasted and hops, the taste is of caramel malt, light butter and hops. Medium body with a light sweet dry finish.

EithCubes (5649) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Draught at the Mitte location. Ruby-amber clear body, lacing white head. Lightly bitter and sticky with mild grains, do like the light roast malt coming through but the caramel is a little off. Only very lightly sweet medium body, hops cleanse the palate. Probably has the most depth of their beers.
