3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample bottle for review. Kicks up a nice fizzy head. Deep brown, but pretty clean body. Smell has some of that agricultural graininess, with the usual dark German malts. Pretty fizzy on first taste. Dunkel graininess continues on the tongue. This has plenty of malt to cover up any hop note here, but it works just fine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Copper/light mahagony. Nice head. Smell: malt, sugar, nuts and some german hops. Taste: malt, nuts, caramell, bread and just the slightest touch of banana. A little bit too sweet for my taste although there is some bitterness in the finish. Easy going Dunkel. Supersüffig.

Copper to light brown in color. Taller head that settle over time to a finger of ecru foam. Toasted bread and malt with a backdrop of herbal hops. Fairly simple flavors with caramel and malt. A German amber with a light bock malt finish. 7/10

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium dark copper clear with little slightly darker than white head. Aroma is very convincing: Foremost nuts with roast and a little hint of caramel. Taste is weaker. Only a little of everything, that is bitterness and even less sweetness. Could be a lot more. Body is only thin and the beer is even watery, despite the medium carbonation, however there is a nice long finish of bread and more nuts. Overall still quite enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a three finger off-white head that fades slowly to a thin layer leaving some lace. Crystal clear amber color. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Nutmeg and malt nose and flavor is hints of caramel, malt. Clean. $3.15 for a 330ml green bottle at Bert’s Better Beers Hooksett, NH.

Drank from a pint glass poured a 330ml bottle, thank you Bjorn. Pours nice a brown, kind of off aromas for a dunkel (might be the organics) but a good dunkel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear brown, quickly diminishing airy head. Malty, bready aroma. Sweet and malty flavour. A little thin and not particularly interesting.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark copper with thin off-white head. Aroma is so much malt and nuttiness - lovely. Flavor is slightly thin, but does resemble the aroma, just lighter. If this was more full-bodied it would be much better. Still very tasty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl @ bottle. Scura tedesca biologica. Birra niente di che, si fa bere ma ben lontana da altre scure tedesche. Aroma inesistente, gusto amarognolo e annacquato.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, dark amber color with quickly desappearing white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Taste is little sweet with long bitter finish. Fizzy mouthfeel, but it’s a bit thin in taste. Ok to drink, but it’s missing something.
