3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nagyon finom kis serecske, kicsit édeskés, malátás, olyan melaszos.
Érződik a karemel is. Igazi dunkel mintapéldány. Ja és gesztenyebarna színe van, annak akit ez érdekel.

Dark nut brown color, good off-white head. Aroma has dark caramel malts and cocoa power, light grassy hoppyness. Medium-bodied. Chocolaty and caramelly flavor, light toasted notes in the finish. Quite low bitterness. Almost a dessert beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. A clear, copper-colored beer topped by a two-finger, creamy head leaving lacings. The aroma has DMS, smoke-notes, hints of cellar and most of all, caramel. Sweet, caramel flavor with some roasted malts and a little dms. Some bitterness shows up towards the end. Full-bodied, quite dry. A decent one, but I could easily do without the DMS. 100327

0.5l bottle that ogivlado got and shared with me (thanks!)
After a dunkel from Weissenoher, another dunkel from Weissenoher. Ah, well. They look similar too, big thick tan head that went away at a medium pace perching on top of a red-amber body. Light coffeeish, slightly chocolatey nose is quite familiar too. Still, the taste sets it clearly apart from the Kloster-Sud. Chocolate, raisins, malt, light, maybe too light, nice, simple drinkable dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong off-white head of fine and dense bubbles. Sweet malty aroma with a bit of spice and vegetal aromas. Color is a very nice dark crimson brown. Lots of bready malts, some roasted brains, brown sugar and some cloying sweetness. Little bit sickly sweet in the stomach. Finishes thick and malty with a bit of lingering spices and squash. An ok brew.
