3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good--some caramel/toffee without overly cloying sweetness; light enough to be refreshing (but strong enough to make sessioning a bit harder!)

Bottle 50 cl. Pours a clear, orangey brown with a beige head. Nutty aroma, very subtle roastiness. Medium body, sweet roast, slightly toasty, sweet chocolate. Extremely clean, smooth and easygoing - exactly how I’d want my Dunkels. 270417

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, at temperature. Beautiful dark amber colour. Low carbonation, slight head. Aroma malty, caramel, pleasant. Taste: nice bitterness, malt, fairly sweet, caramel. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, a bit oily. Lingering astringency. Not unpleasant for the right occasion. A bit too sweet though. (Aren’t most of them?)

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Keg at Folkklubs Ala Pagrabs, 20170106) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had caramel, toffee and hint of toasted malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, caramel, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and mildly bitter. A way too sweet brew.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks Slightly hazy brown. Sweet malty aroma and some hops on the nose. Taste brings dark caramel malts. Sweetness is under control and that’s good. Palate light to medium with high drinkability. Hops and malts in balance. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear autumn maple red colour, with thick but weak caramel foam. Aroma is lightly sweet of caramel malt, rye beard and grains. Palate is full body, slick and creamy texture leaving weak rye bread finish. Taste is sweet of caramel and notes of dark rye bread, sunflower seeds, grains and light of raisins. Overall, very nice full bodied dark beer with notes of rye bread, do recommend.
