dark honey color (almost amber) with a loose head. Sweet aroma with some molasses hints. Bold initial flavor but faded quickly with a weak molasses finish. Nice bite on the tongue, thin bodied. Somewhat bland, but I had a good time trying to identify the subtle flavors.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a nice, deep garnet, with small, subtle carbonation. Nice thick head that slowly turns into fluffy clouds atop the brew.
Nice, caramel, toasted bread, and licorice fragrance. Maybe a hint of bannana ester.
A very creamy beer. Taste is just like the nose, only with some milk chocolate background as well. Good hop flavor, but low bitterness, just as a dunkel should be. One hell of a beer, and perhaps the best dunkel I’ve ever had!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The tastiest beer I tried amongst the German varieties today. Pours ruby-brown with a fluffy tan head. Aroma has toasted bread, light chocolate, earthiness, and a bit of minerality. With a soft, rounded body, this beer bursts with dry chocolate, meaty malt notes, and a very mature oxidized component. Touch of ash on the finish tops off this dunkel. Very solid.
