Enjoyed this a lot on tap but this review is from the bottle. Can't see any difference between the two.

Pours a dark brown body with hints of red and a large foamy head. Aroma of sweet toffee apples. Taste is similar but with caramel as well, with some balancing bitterness. Mouth feel is perfect, neither too thin nor to heavy.

I'm not all that familiar with Dunkel as a style but I think this beer is great. Plenty of flavour, really drinkable and moreish.

Caramel, coffee, honey. Full and very nicely balanced, not on the sweet side, like Tucher Dunkel. There may be better Dunkels out there, like Weltenburger's, but this one is very good, right beside Budwar's.

A-Dark brown with a thin coffee head

S-Malty with some fruitiness

T-Slight malt flavor. Not much of the fruitiness from the smell. Very slight citrus.

MF- Much lighter than most dunkels

Overall- Ok, I was expecting more but it was a bit of a let down
