I recently returned from Berlin where I had some of the best brown bread I've ever tasted. Has anyone found anything like these dense but not heavy loaves, that are soft (not super crunchy like French bread), but not as sweet as the mostly bad "honey wheat" bread most bakeries have here? I haven't been impressed with Great Harvest at all.
Googling around a little, I see that perhaps it's called Vollkornbrot, made with rye? It's lightly sweet, not at all like what we think of as rye bread.
