Half litre bottle bought @Irma Rørvig. Brilliant dark reddish brown. Low lightly tanned bubble head. Sweet dark spiced caramel aroma. Hint of dark bread and grassy hops. LIvely in the mouth. Good body for a 4.5% beer. Taste on the sweet side. Dark caramel and brown sugar flavor. Mild peppery roastiness. Low bitterness, not even enough for balancing. Overall, a pretty fine one. Just a tad or two too sweet to stand out. [Sjællands Odde 15.07.13]

Lovlig megen maltsødme og for lidt bitterhed. En kraftigere humling kunne måske hjælpe, eller mere af den brændte malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kita (1147) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 1, 2013
Draught, 0.50l. Clear pale amber brown color with medium frothy tan-like head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, bread and grassy hops. Taste starts with relatively sweet maltiness and dominant caramel and roasted notes. Following is refreshing grassy, mouthfeel is dry, while aftertaste typical moderate Czech hoppy. Medium body, slightly oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Very drinkable, decent beer, but still not outstanding...

lesifflebiere (1326) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
Cette lager tchèque "noire", mince et pétillante, est plutôt brune après vérification. Odeurs de pain rôti, de céréales grillées, et de houblon. Sucrée, elle présente des notes de caramel très caractéristiques. La finale en est une légèrement houblonnée, mais toujours sucrée. On finit d’ailleurs par se lasser de cette eau sucrée et maltée ; n’empêche, elle est assez agréable à la base.

500 ml can, bought in Denmark. ABV is 4.5%. Dark reddish brown colour, moderate off-white head. Moderate aroma of caramel and brown bread. Caramel and brown bread in the flavour too, quite nice. Very moderate hops, as normal for the style.

yngwie (13923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 31, 2013
Can. A small, dense, light tan head forms over a clear, dark brown body. The aroma is lightly roasted, with caramel and dried fruits. It’s sweet on the palate, with caramel and raisins, and some bitterness. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Roasted finish with raisins and bitterness. A decent beer, easy drinkable but a tad too sweet. 130331

Mörkbrun i färgen med offwhite skum. Doftar gräs choklad, rågbröd. Smakar söt rostad malt, gräs lite choklad. Liten bitterhet på slutet.

500ml bottle bought at the grand opening of Aeon in Tsuen Wan.

Clear deep ruby brown colour; Razor-thin to almost no head with what’s left of little beige foam which lasts for about 5 seconds; Minimal lacing with little carbonation; Aroma of sweet roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, and toffee; Light sweet taste of malt, coffee, milk chocolate, cola, light toast and grass; Very light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is quite pleasant, Taste profile is initially muted and then sudden burst of sweet roasted malt, followed by associated dunkel tastes - most notably chocolate and toffee - all in light doses - plus cola, which is quite a surprising inclusion here. Hoppiness is light grass and only trace of bitterness. Malty finish. Fairly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.

Comments: Finally, I have tasted a proper and a okay-ish dunkel. Previous comments have suggested this brew is very sweet, but I think the sweetness is quite light, just right and appropriate. It also has decent roast aroma and nice chocolaty taste, only being underdone by watery body, very low bitterness and a disappointing non-head. These minuses can be fixed and it has potential to be a good one. A drinkable bargain.
