Growler. Pours walnut with a short lived head of white. Chocolate, roasted nut and toasty grain on the nose. Some earthy, loamy hops. Slightly sweet, but a balancing finish of subtle hops and roast. Moderate body and carbonation. Clean and very tasty.

[5766-20130907] Tap. Fruity mouldy wet grains aroma. Clear, dark ruby red body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Toasted fruity skin grains flavour has a little bit of a roasted coffee note. Medium body. Not often a fan of dunkels but this is pleasant. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5

Pours clear, deepest brown with a pale tan, tight head. Aroma of molasses, caraway, and raisins. Taste is sweet up front with complex sweetness, carrying through to a clean, lightly bitter finish - as good as any Czech or German Dunkel/Tmavý - maybe even better.
