Nothhaft Loisl Dunkel
Color: dark brown
Head: tan, thinning
Nose: malty, some chocolate
Palate: malty, some chocolate, slight roast
Finish: clean, slightly bitter
Served: from a bottle bought locally
Impression: I’ve been through Marktredwitz a couple times but either the brewery was closed or I didn’t have time to stop. I saw a slew of their beers in bottles at a local beer shop and picked them all up to assess whether it’s worth a stop and I’ll say yes right off the bat. The Dunkles has a good dark hue and some chocolate in the nose. It’s not a super tasty example but it has all the right elements and the finish was clean enough to want another, especially at 4.9%. I’ll reserved full judgement until I have it on tap but it’s one I’d like to try.
