33cl bottle dated 5/8/12. This is actually from Germany, not imported to the US with the bottle entirely in German.

Looks black through the glass but more of a root beer appearance with a head that dissipates as fast as root beer's does.

Roasted malt, spent grain, slightly acrid, molasses, clove.

Slightly sweet, malty, wet roasted grain, very little bitterness. hints of fig

Medium bodied, slightly creamy, smooth.

Truth be told, I am not much of a lager guy so this didnt rock my world, but it was an experience and that is what beer is to me... an experience. If you like dark lagers, give this a try.

On draft at Rheinfelder Bierhalle in Zurich. Cola colored, reads as brown but with a deep garnet color when held to the light. Nonetheless clear and with a good finger of light foam. Aroma of wood shavings, vegetal hop smells more than floral, with some very cherry and red fruit smells. Caramel malt to the fore, and much of it, with root beer character, cierry and apricot. Just a musty, sour-edged hop flick at the end. Quaffable and a but thin, better as a food accompaniment than a standalone tipple.

Feldschlosschen Dunkel Perle produces vast amounts of light tan head, which sticks around for a good bit, but dissipates with very little lacing. The body is quite dark, but ruby red hues are easily noted.

I detect aromas of smoke, rye, and maybe a hint of sassafras.

This brew is very flavorful. It has a very sweet flavor, almost like a smoky cola flavor.

Altogether this is about the best dunkel I've ever had. Very drinkable and well balanced. Feels wet, and thirst quenching.

Served out of a 12oz bottle.

A: clear, dark brown. good sticky lacing, medium head retention.

S: weak nose, cola.

T: a bit watery. cola, cherry, light coffee. (note: maybe a bit of sweetness, but i found this much drier than previous reviewers)

M: somewhat over-carbonated. very light-bodied

O: not much going for it, very light in smell, flavor, and body. i guess it might be a good replacement for an easy-drinking light lager with a bit more dark flavors.

A light bodied dunkel that has a touch of character. Light brown in color with a tan head. Light aroma of sweet malt. Tastes of light chocolate malt and a bit of caramel sweetness, finishes dry with no lingering. The most flavor of this breweries brews so far.
