3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Mahrs Brau / Bamberg Germany --- Clear amber brown color, full beige head, lace netting. Aroma of caramel malt. Taste is pure caramel malt, medium carbonation, and light hops. Malt dominates this rich dark brew, but who cares? Solid and balanced, complex and enjoyable at the brewery on a Sunday afternoon.

Sampled from a bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma and a taste of prunes and hazelnuts. Medium mouthfeel and well-carbonated. A well-made and delicious dunkelbier. Any beer named after E.T.A. Hoffmann is great in my book.

Der er ikke så meget at sige om denne øl, andet end at den minder meget om en dansk classic, dog af den bedre slags.
