3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brownish-amber with a dense, thick light brown head. Dark munich malt nose with just a hint of smokiness. Flavors of malt and nuts and a surprising amount of bitterness - the aroma had me anticipating a much sweeter beer. A very nice, if not complex, dunkel.

Bottle - Clear nutbrown color, small diminishing head. Smells very nice of nuts, toffee and roasted malts. Tastes a little less intense. Rather dry and not too sweet. Good.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear copper with medium beige head. Aroma is dust, raisins, toffee, a little syrup, hints of grapes. Taste is dusty bitterness, some caramel sweetness, less lime juice. Some deep complexity, that is ruined by the dust in the foreground. Medium drinkability, alcohol and dust in the finish. Not so great.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A very under-rated beer. It is best enjoyed semi cold in a proper glass, and goes great with Bavarian Goulash!
