1 pint .9 fl oz brown glass bottle with standard pressure cap served into a Uinta pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are above average given its current ratings. Cost was $3.99. Acquired at a bottle shop near San Diego. I think it was KnB wines.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a one finger khaki colour head of nice cream, nice thickness, and good retention. Colour is a pale translucent brown - very strange. Nontransparent. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Not very appealing.

Sm: Nuts, cream, biscuit malt, sugars, and caramel. A light aroma.

T: Caramel dominates. Some nuts. Varied mid-range malts. Some amber and biscuit. Nicely balanced, albeit simple. I like it, but it's hardly impressive. Not special or unique. It's got some nice flavour. Hardly any subtlety or layering.

Mf: A bit overcarbonated. Smooth and wet, suiting the flavour nicely. A bit too thick. Too heavy on the palate for the lack of flavours.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but far from exemplary. I wouldn't get it again. Boring for the style, but definitely on the upper end of those I've tried. A bit pricey by German standards.

Clear brown colored beer with no real head formation.

Smell strongly of grain and toasted bread with a slight fig aroma. Mild noble hop scent with saffron and lemon scents.

Starts out mildly sweet and malty for a lager. Toasted grains with a little nut and molasses flavor. Nice smooth beer hop adds a little grass taste and a little lemon.

Mouthfeel is full for a lager.

Overall a pleasant easy to drink beer that I could see drinking almost anytime.

Poured into a tall wine glass. Color was a medium dark amber, with a thin dirty white head. Head lasted only a few minutes before leaving some lacings that clung to the sides. Reasonable amount of carbonation rose from the bottom in no particular pattern. Aroma was very slightly sweet, that shifted to a subtle malty grain. Flavor reminded me a slightly spicy/peppery wheat bread. Felt a tad thin and bubbly in the mouth. Overall not a bad beer. Well priced for an imported organic.

A- Dark brown, retains an o-k head.

S- Smells like toast and molasses

T- Sour, with a mild toasty flavor. The after taste is sweet and malty, like molasses or maybe maple.

M- Very refreshing, but not terribly light or watery.

O- A good beer, definitely worth trying, but lacks some of the toasty, bread-like quality I was hoping for. I don't think I'll get this beer again, even if it is organic, but I would like to try some other beers from this brewery.

affordable big bottle at old chicago on colorado boulevard. pours a very watered down looking light to medium brown color with a tan head comprised of huge bubbles, but they burst and retreat immediately. the glass may have been a little soapy still, so somebody comfirm this appearance. smells like chocolate malts and a bit of doughnuty sweet malt. flavor is the best asset, as it should be, with plenty of roasty and milk chocolately malt heft. no hops in here to speak of, and a quickly fading aftertaste. feel is on the weak side, light to medium body and fair carbonation. more body would do wonders for this beer. overall i liked this, unique flavor profile for a german beer, and its organic, so plus for that, but a bit more depth of feel could bring it up in my book.

Certified Organic. 500ml bottle.

It pours a nicely medium-dark brown with a huge foamy, creamy white head that slowly recedes with some nice lacing.

The smell here is extremely unique. Huge coffee notes dominate, not usually the norm for the style. It has a nice bit of brown sugar and noble hops as well. An interesting one, and I like it.

The flavor is much different. Lingering coffee notes but also some tartness. The tartness is right up front making me think I got a bad bottle. The nose wouldn't have hinted it at all.

This one started promising but unfortunately a bad bottle so beware.

And if they were trying to replicate an old-school beer then this flavor makes a lot more sense.

500ml bottle poured into a mug. The brew appears a light amber to burnt copper color with an initial surge of head that is a finger strong and slightly tanned. Rising bubbles of carbonation maintain a film across the top. Overall, it shows some decent clarity.

The aroma is caramel to toffee malt that is a bit buttery and includes some fruity to floral qualities. A bit of mineral inclusion and a slight tang of fruity alcohol becomes more noticeable towards the back.

The taste is caramel malt, a bit buttery and tangy with alcohol. Fruity to floral qualities come forward with a sweetness and minor hop touch. The finish is somewhat crisp with the sweetness lasting inside the mouth like buttery biscuit mixed with a bit of minerals.

This is a medium bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall it isn't bad but the tangy character of the alcohol I could live without. It seems a bit off for the style. Take that away and you have a fairly decent dunkel here.

Aroma
Mainly malt, getting figgy/raisin/date like sweetish notes. Really nice and vibrant.

Mouthfeel
Medium carbonation, some residual presence on the palette being a bit heavier than water

Appearance
Poured initially to a 3/4" head from 1/2 liter bottle in a goblet, fairly large bubbles so dissipated pretty quickly but having nice residual lacing. Burghandy in color, very dark amber.

Taste
Sharp, almost sourish kind of taste on the palette. Get a hint of the raisiny (almost prunelike) kind of flavor. It tastes good, although I think it may end up being cloying with the raisin/sourness.

Drinkability
Rather, same issue as above with the taste. I'd give it a go at a session although I don't think it's as drinkable as a schwarzbier.

Overall
I like the mouthfeel and aroma as I've continued to drink I think the sourness and raisin tones would become an issue in how drinkable. Good, but not my favorite.

Poured from a bottle into a stein glass.

Look – dark brown in color, with about half a finger’s worth of almost gray-colored foam that dissipates quickly.

Smell – fairly malty-smelling, but a tinge of something salty or sharp about it.

Taste – still fairly malty in the taste, but also pretty strongly musky in quality. It almost tastes like it has something like an olive juice or oil added. Not very strong in bitterness or sweetness.

Mouthfeel – pretty well balanced, but leans a little more toward the watery side.

Overall – not a bad tasting brew at all, but also not very intriguing or interesting.

A - Brown raisin colored body with a faint white head and some sticky lacing.

S - Lots of sweet syrupy malt and copious aromas of sweet dark honey. Some caramel and molasses in the mix too but overshadowed by that wonderful honey nose.

T - A chewy batch of grains on the palate, with sweet malt, nutty grains, and toasty breads. Molasses and malt syrup sweetness. A bitter hop touch with some dried dark fruit hints.

M - Chewy and medium bodied, well carbonated and subtly dry in the end.

O - A great Dunkel, this one is sweet and hearty.
