3.48/5  rDev -6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Draught at the brewpub on 20th Jan 2014.

Pours a very dark brown, almost black in fact, on top a tanned head.

Slightly over roasted malts in the aroma, some coffee hints (which is why I thought their Coffee beer was this with added Coffee granules).

Tasted fine, mild coffee notes within a rich malty flavour. Sweet and bitter moments in the mouth, interesting without being intriguing.

Different and more than OK.

The beer is almost black (or almost no reflection). Beige foam, quite compact and fine.
At the noise you feel the smell of caramel malt, but not intrusive and boring, rather, it also shows peculiar hints of coffee and chocolate. Even in the taste will highlight the clear notes of chocolate and coffee, always with a well-malty bases but not at all cloying.
The notes are almost more a Stout style that a Dunkel, due to the present of a well-defined notes of chocolate and coffee (although it lacks the hazelnut and the typical creamy of a Stout).
More coffee and chocolate in the aftertaste, but also a fair carbonation that does not make it at all creamy.
The beer has been given as Dunkel, but maybe it is a kind of hybrid between Dunkel and Stout (perhaps a low fermentation Stout?), or at least a very strange Dunkel.
