2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had the organic version. Strong, crisp, malty aroma has a fruity underpinning. Pours a clear, bubbly caramel brown with a fairly thick, though not persistent, buff head. Malty, slightly fruity is pleasant if not complex or remarkable. Texture seems rather thin and lacks fizz. Average, but still potable. Good with a meal.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured clear amber brown with a weak head.
Aroma had more sweet caramel malt than medium roast malt, but this is reversed in tasting. Lightly sweet flavor suggests dark bread baked with some brown sugar.
Medium body with spot on carbonation.

Bottle. LIghtly hazed dull chestnut brown with a short-lived tan head. Malt-focused nose of caramel / toffee, yeast powder, filberts, almond butter, sour cola and potato starch with minute amounts of cooked cabbage and turnip (DMS). Light body with creamy and soft texture, a bit chalky / powdery from the yeast. Lacks flaws but is very basic, especially the nut and caramel syrup malt flavor. Low sweetness, medium to low acid, low bitterness.

Clear dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Nose of straw and malt. Taste of nuts, caramel, malt, leaves, woods, hops and torf. Easy to drink with a very flat body with very low carbonation. Quaffable and nice.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Schönes, klassisches Dunkel. Beginnt recht simpel mit malzigen Klängen und etwas Süße. In der Mitte einige Nußaromen und eine gewisse Schwere. Zum Abschluss hin noch etwas dicker und schwerer - leider ohne ein trockenes Ende. Eher im Gegenteil angesiedelt. Dennoch recht süffig und einfach klassisch gut.

Botted. Aroma of Sweet Malt and Caramel. Pour dark golden brown with a head that disappears very fast. Taste Malt, Caramel, toasted nuts and mild biscuit. This is a nice Dunkel very traditional and you can tell they are following the tradition of Bavarian beers.

0.5l bottle. Deep ruby body, light brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel and roasted malts. Taste is more caramelly than the aroma suggests and has dark fruit and toast notes. The finish is a bit hoppy. Medium-full body, oily texture. Nice one!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clearish reddish brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malty with a little skunk. Taste is a little too thin, malt with notes of caramel. Not the best dunkel. Can’t quite go ’thumbs up’...

Stopped in for a quick pint before heading to a friend’s wedding in Athens. Was hoping to hit up Aromas, but it was closed. Luckily I was able to tick off a new style at the Royal Peasant. Pours a very average medium brown with sweet grainy scent. Very strongly carbonated. Sweet with a slight hint of bitterness. Bottle - The Royal Peasant - Athens, GA
