2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared thanks to deanso. Clear brown with beige head. Cardboard, toffee, light dusty herbs, mineral. Light sweet and bitter. Just medium bodied. It seems a bit stale and old, even though it’s just two months old. Bit weird and unusual.

Bottle from Damian. Rich and filling, at the same time refreshing. Rather malty with lots of malt complexity, toasted, bread crumbs, toffee, caramel. Very easy drinking, refreshing. Very good.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
