Pours midnight brown w/ a medium, semi creamy froth that reduces to a few islands and lace. Aroma of malted stone fruit and dusty cocoa. Medium nectar w/ residual effers. Moderately roasted w/ sour cocoa and leather. Finish has a big bittered finish.

Bottle courtesy of patrick767. Thanks for sharing. Tan smalll head that mostly diminished, sparse lacing, no visible carbonation, semi-transparent, and a dark brown with a ruby tint for the hue. Nose was malty, roasty and some caramel and ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel.

33cl bottle. I only bought this to see if there was even one Spanish beer that was drinkable. Spanish beers I have had previously have all been poor to awful. This is a dunkel and I like the style but it’s a weak effort. Probably the best Spanish beer I have had, but still short of a quality dunkel. At least its drinkable. Thin, but has a bit of caramel and a slight roasty bitterness. Lightly smoky aftertaste. Just OK.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A lightly caramel flavoured beer of modest character. Nothing offensive, and moderately pleasant. Faint bitterness in the finish. OK.

Poured a slightly water black with a whispy white head. Smells of molasses and nuts. The flavor is a little strange considering the appearance. Very alcoholic flavor, almost like it was brewed in the same tanks as tequila. It’s that agave finish that made me throw this beer out. Sorry.

Yuck. Tastes like a regular old swill pale lager, very mild with a light funky sourness that is very off-putting. Cobwebby. The only hints that its a dunkel is a touch of caramel. This really should be called an ’american dark’, not a dunkel. Not even close. Regardless of style, its pretty bad.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Pretty classy label, black with gold fringes and red letters. Cerveza tells me it is from mexico but no, how naive, it is from Spain? Well I guess they speak Spanish down there in Mexico. 11.15 oz brown bottle. This is even less beer than the 11.2 oz Euro bottle!. Pours dark brown, very surprised, was expecting something like a pale lager. I didn’t see the Negra on it. Has a slight skunk aroma and that is it, no other complex smells in there. Quite a personality impact on the flavor burst. Yes yer typical dunkel, roastyness and malty flairs. I have not seen this by the case at my distributor. I am pleased at the taste. Seems to have more alcohol than is stated. It kind of sticks out at you. The finish is a bit too bitter malty/hoppy for me. Reminds me a little of mild stout or porter and it lingers for a while. This may make it not too much of a session beer. Good overall first impression. There are better dunkels out there but this is worth tasting.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Very dark brown with a reddish hue and a creamy, beige head leaving laces. Aroma of roasted malt. Medium-bodied with roasted malt, but nothing burned here. Dry as a bone, no sweetness at all to be detected. Dry, light bitter finish. 140107

Not a bad dunkel. I was interested in this because I usually don’t like Spanish beer, but I LOVE dark beer. So I wanted to see if the Spaniards could even the playing field. Not a bad offering as far as Spanish beers go, but also not a great offering as far as dunkels go. There was a malty aroma with a thin smokey aftertaste. The problem was there was no complexity. If I lived in Spain this would be the only beer I would drink.
