50cl bb06/2017, - so not "Rittenwalder Lager Dunkel"... - Auburn pour, little head. Wet (unroasted) chestnuts in aroma, grainish cow fodder and bready starches. Diluted pumpernickel in flavour lands at brackish liquorice and astringent chestnut peel - not a fan of either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, figs and plums. Pours clear chestnut-brown liquid with a small head. Sweet and malty initial taste, fine roasting flavours, caramel and chocolate, subtle spicy hop finish. Medium-full body with an oily, little dry texture and average carbonation. More on the sweet side for a Dunkel, but pleasant-tasting and very drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Listed on the label now as 5.2%. Pours from the bottle dark brown with a ruby tinge. The tan colored head soon fades without a trace. Aroma is very nutty, some caramel, and a hint of smoke. Roasted caramel notes dominate the otherwise unremarkable flavor. Sweet with very little bitterness. Unpleasant stale feel. Well, my bottle did exceed the best before date by 16 days. Low carbonation and a watery feel despite the somewhat oily palate. Mixed feelings on this one, but overall unimpressed. Maybe I caught a bad bottle.

On-tap at a beer garden in Mittenwald. Clear amber brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel and nuts. Sweet, balanced maly flavors, notes of caramel, prunes and bread, finish is mildly bitter. Medium-bodied. Decent easy drinking beer.

Taste is medium+ sweet malt, caramel, Munich malt, bit nutty, bread, light toast, light bitterness, sweetish finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.
