Dark red/brown in appearance with a mild malty flavour with hints of caramel. Nice but won’t drink it very often. graziano85 (466) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 30, 2013
Very dense beige head, with a nice copper colour. Smell is mainly malt, bread notes. Taste is quite sweet, malty. Light body, waterish mouthfeel.
An average dunkel. ruigo (3000) - PORTUGAL - NOV 12, 2013
Shared a 50cl bottle from Maruhn (Dormstadt). Pours a dark brown colour with off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, nuts and lightly hops. Medium to low carbonation and medium to light body. Flavour is more sweet than bitter with a little sour note at the end. Overall a more sweet beer than the ones I prefer, but drinkable. Camons (12450) - Hasselager, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2013

22.09.2013. 0,5l Bottle. Dark brown colour with off-white head. Aroma is maty. Dark malts with sweet notes at the end. Rather rich with soft notes of caramel. There is also some fresh yeast notes. Bitterness is low and leaves a soft sweet malty flavour. Good beer. SSSteve (4006) - - SEP 20, 2013
Bottle. Clear ruby brown with fizzy beige head. Spicy, nutty, corn meal aroma. Nutty, corn meal, flax-like flavors with burnt caramel. Light body. Derbeth (946) - Kraków, POLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Nose is raisin. Mouth is not very intensive raisin aroma, plus some roasty notes. Black colour, minimal white head. Light sweetness, lightly sour, also a bit salty. Thin texture, even a bit watery, lively carbonation (too high in my opinion). Overall too sweet, too much raisin aroma, too few roasty aroma. Not bad, but does not have much to offer.

I brought this home from Germany, I believe the photo is my bottle, purchased in Rothenberg. Dark brown. Lots of grain in the aroma and also in the flavor. Lightly sweet malt and more flavorful as it warms. A great session beer.
