Impression: My impression of this beer in bottled form ended with it would be interesting to have this in a Krug to see how preconception affects impression. Well, this is exactly what happened at the Krautheimer Biergarten. The previous beer was their signature Pils and since I hadn’t had it prior, I asked for a glass mug rather than what appeared the standard Krug. When I ordered this one, my friend asked why I didn’t do the same with the Dunkel and I explained I’d already seen it and wanted to not think about what kind of beer it was. Oddly enough, it did reveal itself as a Dunkel with both some coffee and chocolate in the nose but the flavor could have been another Kellerbier, though not quite as dry. I did find the pepper element more integrated and pleasant on tap as well.
