Keyaki. Bit fruity, some caramel, nice enough but sample was a little small to tell as it ran out.

Bottle:Chestnut-amber coloured, clear, small off-white head; dryish toasty-caramelly nose with traces of coffee and molasses, some hops underneath; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied and pretty soft; slightly lingering toasty-malty finish. Quite right... kappldav123 (6097) - GERMANY - MAR 29, 2014
Bottle looks good. Beer in the glass zippy, light brownish. Starts mild, roasty, not too intense. Light notes of caramel. Modest sourish, not too much. Finish mild, well balanced, roasty-malty. Not bad! Beerhunter111 (20344) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch röstmalzig, Karamell, leicht würzig. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, leichte schokoladige Noten, leicht würzig. KyotoLefty (10197) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2014
Draught at Qbrick. Brown-orange with a fine, low head. Caramel and chocolate in the nose, though not all that fragrant. Light raisins too. Light, rather crisp flavor of caramel and chocolate, with light cinnamon, not overly sweet or malty, with decent hop bitterness. Light and clean for a dunkel, nice enough. Very drinkable.

Pours dark brown. Aroma has hints of malts and licorice. Taste is quite malty. MoritzF (9851) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JAN 31, 2014
(bottle) Dark brown colour with a medium-sized and tanned foamy head. Slightly molassy dark malty aroma with traces of cacao and slightly skunky veggie notes of sugar beet. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Dark malty taste, again with notes of sugar beet and a touch of molasses; sweet and slightly sticky finish with notes of metal and traces of chocolate in the aftertaste. Not the best brew of the Plank collection. 16.I.14 Idiosynkrasie (7433) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JAN 28, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, ruby red glowing, mahogany colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Dark malty aroma, a touch of malt lozenge, hoppy overtones have a wet grassy touch. Taste is dry dark malty with a cautious touch of treacle, very subtle sweetness, dry hoppy overtones. Nothing special. Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
bottle from Bierzwerg. Brown colour, beige head. Shy malty base, hints of caramel and chocolate, shy hoppy finish. Quite thin and watery - I expected more. lusikka (7813) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 10, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown colour with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, bread and some dried fruitiness. Flavour of toasted malts, some roastiness even, raisins, mild grassy bitterness, tart-ish lemon and nuts. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Rather rich, malty and fruity finish. Very nice.
