3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good carmel nutty flavor and filled with malt. A little bit of bitterness but it is well balanced with the flavors in the beer. Some good earth flavor tells you it is a German beer. The finish tapers off quickly but is still very enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (Beerangel, BB 07/2009, alc. 4.9 %).
Clear dark ruby color, good creamy beige head. Nutty-caramelly nose with some chocolate in it too. Soft palate. Starts milk chocolate and toasted, but in the finish there is also some bitter flavors. Good maltyness in this enjoyable dunkel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL bottle. Pours a nice umber/mahogany shade with a creamy beige head. Leaves some fine spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty with some fresh baked dark bread and caramel. Toasted grain flavor with sweeter toffee/caramel notes. A little bit of earthy character and a slightly metallic note on the finish. Light and dry, but could use more body. Finish is on the watery side. Smooth carbonation, easy to drink. Decent dunkel but not robust enough.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 0,5 l. Mid copper, small beigish head. Nose is malty, some berries and roastiness. Flavor is toasty, caramel roasted yet dry, bitterish, herbal and nutty. Really nice surprise for a dunkel and definately one of my faves in the genre I usually don’t care much about. Not as sweet as dunkels often are.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coppery colored with little yellow head. Chocolaty-nutty aroma with some grains and vegetables, good dunkel aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more roasted with nuts in start, caramel also here with some burnt tone. Aftertaste dries with flowery vegetables and some cookie note. Good and original dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (from beerangel.de). Deep coppery amber colour with mediumsized beige head. Aroma is bready, caramel malty along with some slight nutty notes. Flavour is coffee, sweet wood, some mild roasted motes as well as some slight nuttyness. Almost smoked in the finish. Quite dry palate as well. A pleasant and quite different dunkel. Crispy, but smooth carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear brown with a decent 0ff-white head and nice lacing. Straw, caramel, metal, and toasted bread in the aroma. Taste is watery and weak. More straw with bread crusts, caramel and roasted malt, just not a lot of it. Some earthy nuttiness when it warmed, but not enough to get excited about.
