The foam was wheat/buckwheat in color, thick and smooth. The color was a nice amber/cola with hints of toasted wheat and a hops highlight. The smell was deep, robust with hints of wheat and hops highlight. Taste - a great balance of wheat and hops with a small molassis undertone, a little nutty and flowery. Mouthfeel - smooth, crisp, medium-bodied. Drinkability - smooth with a subtle tartness, a good session.

500ml bottle. Mug. Bright amber color, clear appearance. Yellowish, creamy foam creates a rocky crown. A thin & lasting layer remains on top. Floral, crystal malt aromas & chocolate hues. Crispy upfront with slight sweetness & moderate toasted flavors. Light body. Moderate carbonation. Dense texture & spicy touch. Gentle chocolate, dry nut & bitter cocoa flavors in the middle linger into a dry bitter/sweet finish. Well balanced & easy drinkable beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

(on tap at Brauhaus Schmitz - poured in dimpled mug... possibly not entirely clean, like last time)

A: hazy, reddish mid-brown... scant foam - open, sudsy bubble structure

S: fresh-ish brown bread with a minerally, toasted grape skin (mild raisin) note

T: lightly chocolaty and roasty... caramelized wood.... mild brown bread crust... malty over bitter, but a clean, polished sort of malt... almost an herbal overtone - an earthy, dried-leaf vein through it

M: fairly light and marginally smooth with a bit of a carb bite on the back end.... perhaps a tad too flat and dry?

O: I suppose fairly flavorful and a touch more complex (rough, ragged) than usual for a dunkel

Serving type: on-tap

This pours a clear, dark amber color with a slight, foamy head. The aroma is inviting with toasted malts and hazelnut tones. This is highly drinkable with a smooth texture and a decent sweet grain taste that is perfect for the style. Very well made and delicious.

3.78/5  rDev -3.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A - nice burnt sienna with a ruby hue when put to the light. Mild head (two fingers), eggshell white with a little residue.

S - Nice toffee smell with distinct malt and hop scents; a little too predominant but not by much. Fairly nice aroma.

T - Starts with a sweet caramel taste and transitions into a more malty middle and a slightly bitter hop hint at the end. A slight hint of raisins perhaps in the beginning also. A little more malt would be the only major improvement.

M - Not overly active but certainly not stale. A little more carbonation would be preferred, but the body is comparable to your average Dunkel.

O - the bottle claims its "das Beste Dunkel der Welt"...certainly an overstatement, but not an utterly gross exaggeration. This is a very good dunkel, well worth the drink, and although there are better Dunkels in Germany, it is a nice and balanced beer with pretty even overtones for the most part.

good not great. not as October as I wanted it to be, but still a tasty brew, quintessentially german in every way. the pours is clear for the genre, lacey on the sides of the glass, with a deep ruby color and a nose of german amber malts and lager yeast. it smells also like warm fermentation for a lager, a little acidic and funny for some reason, but not unattractive. notes of lager yeast and semisweet amber come though, toffee in the finish, with not quite enough hops to balance. yeasty and bold flavored, I wish it wasn't quite so sugary on the back end, but a drinkably dark german beer with a lot of character. decently carbonated, a little bland in the mouth, but a good beer overall, especially for the price.
