3.53/5  rDev -2.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Consumed 1/09/2010- from notes.

Green 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- Dark chestnut brown with ruby highlights topped off with a one finger khaki colored head. Pretty good retention and decent lacing.

S- Muted caramel malt.

T- Malts are much more evident as well as a caramelish sweetness and a little something else that I cant put my finger on.

M- Medium bodied, not much carbination. A little sticky but not in a bad way.

D- One of the best Dunkel's I've had, definitely wish I'd picked up more than one.

Bottle served at the Spatenhof, already poured into a 500 ml mug by the staff. On to the beer:

The beer arrived with two fingers of head, a light chestnut color with amber hues, and leaving a few strings of lace around the mug. The aroma is pleasant, not too sweet. Mild toast and raisins comes to mind....hmmm, raisin toast? Having previously tasted a Lowenbrau Original in the state years ago, I had a dampened impression of the brand, only to be pleasantly surprised how this tasted. It has a deep taste; toasted with some raisin, light grassiness, chocolate covered raisins, yet never goes too sweet. It also feel nearly full bodied and very smooth.

A very good surprise indeed. I wouldn't mind to see this variety imported into the states.

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

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a 12 oz. mug.
This beer pours a gorgeous dark amber to brown, but crystal clear with an off-white head that lingers a while. Not a strong aroma, but what is there is dominated by sweet, grainy malts. The flavor is dominated by roasted malty sweetness with a nice light hop finish, just enough to balance the malts. The body is medium with enough carbonation to keep it from being too heavy. Crisp and refreshing.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Brewed in Russia by InBev, 4.5% ABV.
Pours dark brown beer with two-finger bubbly beige head. Good caramel aroma and a taste is caramel too, slightly roasted. Well-balanced bitterness, light body, moderate carbonation. A water of the brew seems not very well to me. That's probably a difference between original german beer and local licensed. Anyway, it's a good one.
