2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 (Can 50 cl) Pretty dark-brown beer with a fine, brownish head. Very malty and sweetish. Has a characteristic smoky note. This could be a lighter version of the brewery’s bock-beer. This canned version is apparently meant for the American market. 141203

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2004 (on bottle - thanx for sending this one, Sigmund) Dark, amberish brown, hows that for color? This beer is strngely light for a dunkl and dosen´t have so much punch as one, but it´s still a good mixture. Sweet malty nose, a bit spicy and alot of chocolate. Tha taste is more simple, the chocolates contiue, very much in fact. No hopping at all, actually the finish is like roasted ryebread, nice one here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Apearance: clear and light caramelly brown in color, with a head puffy, well-retained, off-whitish.
Aroma: soft and light, but full of spice and fruit, as well.
Sweet and tasty,well-rounded, for nothing dominates here, not much. Malt may be on top, but does not assert itself too much, and hops are non-existent.
Medium-body, medium-length, nutty finish.
Very good texture, plays in the mouth quite well, and the flavor gives off more caramel essence towards the rear.
A very, very good dark lager. Not the best, but not far away from it, either.

Clear dark brown with head lacking. Lovely soft maltiness (caramel and nut?), bitter finish, well balanced.

My norwegian favourite. Malty and round, great colour, and a taste which goes well with food. Must be served quite cold, in my opinion.

Had a nice brown color. Slight nutty taste. Bought a can at a local grocery store, too bad it was to get rid of their stock. Overall, a decent entry.

So they say take a Bayer at the first sign of a headache, but my head still hurts and I've drunk the whole thing! OK, if you're not from the US, you won't get that joke. Sipping this in a can as I type and it's a touch more bitter than I'd have liked. However, I'm a fan of dunkels and this is very malty and overall quite pleasant. Could do with less hops.
