(draught) pours a slightly hazy deep ruby colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of toffee and heavy butter, slightly peppery, with notes of herbal hops. flavour is mostly the same, a little less butter, with some caramel, smooth dark malts and burnt toast. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Brown bodied, big creamy light tan head. Caramel, butterscotch, toffee. Very different from what I expected. Medium sweet. Okay but not quite my taste.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the brewpub. Aroma washing cloth, soapy, not the least bit good. Some very light dark, caramel malts in the background. Beige head, moderate duration. Clear dark ruby-brown colour. Taste got more of the same as aroma. A little coffee makes appearance, also caramel. But overall a disappointment. Flawed beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber-brown body, off white head. Heavily buttery nose, caramel too. Sourish yoghurty malty taste, unimpressive.

Mid red-brown medium bodied with ripe fruit, a touch of chocolate and sweet malt body. Enjoyable but not the best.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Redish brown, somewhat undefined color with white foam haed. Aroma is sweet caramel, light yeast. Taste is bit too much caramel, again some yeast and less bitter. Short aftertaste. (Vienna 201210)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub.
Brown colour. Creamy head. Toasty nose, along with chocolate. Flavour is dominated by milk chocolate in a light body. Pretty one-dimensional for a dunkel, and no nuttiness at all.

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Draught at the brewpub. And for the third time... DMS, DMS, DMS. Oh, some shy grainy coffee note somewhere far in the back. Otherwise, this is just corn and cooked vegetables. It takes some skill to brew a dark beer that would be dominated by DMS to such a degree.

0,2l on tap at the brewpub as "Wieden Bräu Dunkles 11.6° Stammwürze". strong smell of caramel, some chocolate, light spices. light body, soft carbonation, light mouthfeel. tastes of caramel, spices, light vegetables, some roast, licorice, hints of ash. finishes dry with some roast and spices and vegetables. decent beer, unfortunatly the vegetable notes are a bit distracting, could have been better..

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
19/07 On tap at the brewpub. It poured clear red to brown body with smaller brownish head. Light caramel and toffee aroma. Empty flavor, some sweetness is here in caramel form, as well as some rustical grainy/herbal note. Slight butter acidity note make description complete. Thin body of course, finish was short watery and a bit milky. Wouldn’t be bad if it wasn’t so empty.
