A subtle acid kick from the roasting aromas leads to the nale: toffee, toast and cocoa notes gently linger. Dominantly malty, slim, dry.

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.

kappldav123 (6097) - GERMANY - APR 3, 2017
Tap at the brewpub. Brownish coloured, small head. Surprising smokey aroma. Starts fine malty, earthy, hints of some spices. Light chocolate notes. Finish a bit milder. Not as smokey as the aroma made me exspect. Nice one!

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.

3.2
ganache (5848) - 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.

3.5
skortila (5793) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 24, 2006
Tap @ the brewpub. Aroma of slighly roasted malts (coffee, chocolate, caramel), slightly smoked. Hazy, amber coloured with a thin, off-white head. Taste is sweet, roasted malts (caramel, chocolate and some coffee) and some smoke. Bit thin body.

3.3
Christos (5691) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2016
(Lemke Original) Bottle 355 ml from Beerhunter111, thanks! Served into a glass tankard, ABV 5.4% Deep amber to light brown colour on the body, mostly clear, with a tall and thick off-white head on top. Very good retention. Aroma has light caramel, plenty of toffee, toasted malts. Taste has light caramel, chestnuts, toffee, toasted malts, light butter. Medium body, carbonation on good levels. Not bad, pleasant enough.

3.2
Marko (5596) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 9, 2010
Draught at the Hackescher Markt location. Poured a hazy radk red body with a small off white head. Light caramelly nose. A nicely sweet taste, Woody, perfumey and polleny. Slightly bready, eggy. Some bitter herbal hopiness, some yeastiness that clashes with the rest. Bitter aftertaste too. Got better as it warmed.
