Had this at Cafe Abseits in Bamberg.

A- A clear amber-brown in color with a two finger head. Head was firm with open spacing. Head persisted for a long time and left a pretty intense lacing for at least half the beer.

S- Rich malt at first, but with a pretty interesting hoppy presence at the end. Hints of caramel and almonds. The hoppy finish is bitter, with some green notes. Definitely a unique smell for a Dunkel.

T- All the notes from the smell follow through to the taste, but are muted....a little disappointing (just because of how interesting the smell was). Presence of caramel and stewed prunes. A fairly bitter, dry finish, a little unbalanced.

M- Fairly creamy, medium bodied. Moderately carbonated with a definite carbonated bite.

D-It finished just a bit too bitter for the style. Definitely different. I'm glad I had it, would recommend trying it, but probably wouldn't order it again/very often.
