0.5 l bottle. Copper to amber color. Honeyish, bready, perfumed and solventy aroma. Sweetish, bready, honeyish, solventy and toffeish flavor. Solventy alcohol comes through unpleasantly. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle… February in Franconia (2011)… Pours clear and amber with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head that never fully dissipates. The bouquet provides apple cider, toffee and toasted malt. Medium-bodied and milky with reserved carbonation. The flavor tilts bitter with a toasty character and a gentle kiss of honey. Bittersweet finish – much more bitter than sweet. Thanks go out to erlangernick and Koelschtrinker for making this month of Franconian lagers possible! Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2011
Dull light brown. Thin head. The aroma is a bit appley. Fairly strong - lots of kick - with the malts accented to a toast character. Fairly rough, unpolished example. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Sampled on 12/24/2010. The dunkle bock pours a light to medium brown color from a .5L swing top bottle. Large sized white foamy head with decent lacing and nice retention. The aroma is bready, caramel , fruity and sweet. A medium bodied dunkel. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and herbal. Decent carbonation. A semi-sweet and bready dunkle. Seems a little less sweet and a touch thinner than a dunkle should, but it’s still very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

bottle from Frankenland - díky! Clear chestnut-brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Full-bodied, malty, hints of raisins, nuts and dates. Bitter-sweet, quite some hops in the lingering finish.

Bottle, year past the "mindestens haltbar" date. Lovely copper red with a light thin foam. Yeasty, clovelike aroma. Malty caramel taste with a sugary cloying feel up front, reminds one of candi sugar, but finishes comparatively dry. Some similarities to a maerzen but much maltier and sugarier.
