A 330 ml brown bottle from a 5 bottle variety pack. Translucent brown hue, tall tight spongy light beige head that settles slowly and gets rocky.

Sweet caramelized malt, some nuttiness and a good dose of chocolate wafer in the nose.

Sweet yet astringent malt up front in the flavour, caramel and chocolate wafer, with a dry nuttiness in the middle, and dry spicy hops on the finish and aftertaste.

Light-bodied mouthfeel, slick with low carbonation.

An okay Dunkel in the beginning, becomes more and more astringent closer to the end, and ends up with a hop presence more akin to a Pilsener or an Alt. I dig on hops, but they feel a bit out of place here in this one.

Yup its a Dunkel and not a bad attempt. The beer is malty with some interesting hop uses that give it an unique flavour. Could do with a bigger mouthfeel but worth trying. Pricing is high considering the quality but it came with five other beers in a mixed pack

From what I can glean from the label, this is a sort of Danish version of an Oktoberfest beer.

This beer pours a hazy ruddy amber colour, with two fingers of dense foamy pale beige head, which leaves a low painted wall of lace around the glass in its wake. It smells of lightly roasted malt, a mild oily nuttiness, some faint dry chocolate, and earthy hops. The taste is more of the same - mildly toasty, biscuity malt, a hint of nutty bread, and earthy, slightly bitter hops. The carbonation is moderate to soft, the body on the lighter side, but still nice and smooth. It finishes off-dry, the bitter hops kicking up a bit.

A straightforward dark ale, nothing standing out, good or bad. Easy enough to put back, and adequately balanced to be served in big Danish mugs, I presume.

330ml bottle poured into my Duvel tulip aug20 2010

A a hazy ruby red when held to the light, a thumbs width of tan head falls quickly but leaves several patches of lace

S nutty chocolate with some very faint coffee

T it tastes as it smells, nothing great but nothing at all offensive

M thin but with enough carbonation to give it a slightly creamy feel

D pretty basic but worth drinking, I doubt I'd go looking for this beer but if passed to me I would drink it without complaining

wasn't sure what style to place this one in, wouldn't say a dunkelweizen To me it tastes like an English Brown so that's what I listed it as.

Edit.. After reading up on styles I should have listed this as a Munich Dunkel Lager but I don't know how to change it so ya
