3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Just came across these notes from my Swiss trip last fall ... Brown color with a reddish tint. Frothy beige head. Lively carbonation and a lightish texture. Roasty and toasty, with nice notes of nuts, tobacco and toffee. Some bitterness surfaced in the finish. Decent, easy-to-drink brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark coca-cola colored, big vanishing beige head. Sweet, caramelly, only mildly roasted aroma, now after two Swiss dunkels I may say this is typical one... Medium bodied. Flavor is similar with some more roastiness, aftertaste dries with mild hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Creamy and just a little toasty aroma with some noble hops. Almost opaque garnet with lasting, tan, thin blanket. Flavour begins with a little toasty malt that’s a little sweet and well balanced with bitterness, ending with some toastiness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting bitterness. Unremarkable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
50cl bottle in Interlaken. Dark red/brown; black without light behind it. Light roasted aroma with a faint white wine acidity that grows over time. Bitter caramel flavor with faint coffee and a subtle hop balance; pretty light overall. Medium light body with hight carbonation; clean finish with some lingering bitterness. The acidic quality is a little odd, but it doesn’t seriously distract. Passable dunkel.
