Head: creamy, off-white
Nose: strong malt, some chocolae
Palate: richly malty, slight chocolate, fine underlying hops
Finish: long, semi-dry, bittersweet
Served: on tap at the brewery
Impression: Gasthof Reichold is one of the staple brewpubs on the Aufseß circuit. While this beer doesn’t appear to be one of their staples and I don’t see it on their website anymore, I’ve always found it on tap when there. Maybe I’m just lucky because I quite like it. It’s a fine balanced Dunkles and think it has a cleaner finish than the legendary dark beer up the trail at Kathi-Bräu.
