3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml. bottle. 5% ABV per the label. Pours a medium, light beige head, over a clear light brown (SRM 20) body....nose is light toasted malts with toast, biscuit, hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters....taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, light hop bitterness and light spice....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low with light acid. This is a quite typical Dunkel with moderate roasted malts, light hops and not a tremendous amount of character. Rating above to my enjoyment, rating at the right to style. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a pretty reddish brown color with a small head.
The aroma is pretty sweet, with lots of caramel, toasted marshmallow, and some mild roastiness.
The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma lets on, although it’s a moderately sweet beer… flavors of cola, some mild bitterness, light earthy hops, & nuttiness. Some nice flavors here for sure, s’a pity that cola seems to be the dominant one….
The palate is bubbly but really pretty thin.

Light carbonation, kind of soft. Medium-plus body. Dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some bigger nuttiness. This is a pretty good dunkel. A pleasant surprise, as the hefe I had from them was really disappointing.
