500 mL bottle from State Line Liquors. Pours a clear, dark cranberry red color with a medium head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma is light roasted malts and dark fruits, primarily raisin, toffee and soy. Taste is very bready with bristly hops, toasted malts and toffee. Very dry with only the faintest fruit notes. Medium bodied.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2008 Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Draft at the Bad Durkheim Wine Festival. Pours a medium brown. Aromas of wheat bread, caramel, and a touch of something metallic. Flavor is malty/metallic without a lot of character.

This one had the ability to transcend my utter disappoint for everything else from this brewing group, but it didn’t because it is so goddman sweet. There are a lot of great flavors here, caramel and toffee, dark fruits, but it would be great if it finished off dry and bitter, but it stays sweet throughout, not quite to the point of being cloying, but an unaturally amount to the point where it was unenjoyable to drink.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - APR 14, 2008
50cl bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquor. Pours a cranberry brown, with a thin, sandy off-white head. Even with a hard pour, can’t get more than 1/2 an inch. Still, what little head there is laces incredibly. Strong, sweet smell = caramel, cherries, leather. Taste is also sweet, but much better than the aroma. Anise, honey, figs, raisins, all in a creamy mouthful. Drying ending is roasted coffee bitters, makes the inside of your cheek sweat. Alcohol feels but doesn’t taste. Tongue a little numbed from the anise and alcohol. Needless to divulge, I enjoyed this rarity very much.

Draft at Zum Schneider. Poured dark, and tasted great, maybe not quite enogh sweeteness but still I thought it was pretty good.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2007
Bottle: Pours a transparent ruby copper with a spotty-lacing light tan head. Sweet toasty caramel malty aroma has some lightly bready German yeast. Body has decent thickness and sweet dark caramel maltiness with some doughy German lager yeast toward a thinner, slightly drier finish. A pretty good dunkel.

EithCubes (4887) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle. Alternating sweet and dry aroma, caramel and roast malt with red berry. Grapey malt touches, but not as much as in a Bock. Beautiful murky brown / chestnut pour with a big lacing rocky tanned head. Nutty taste with red berry swirling. Medial sweetness balanced by faint bitterness. Really tasty and addictively quaffable. Mf is excellent – crisp and silken, light-medium body with a good dose of malt. Solid Dunkel!

bierkoning (10199) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2007
Bottle. Pears on syrup in the aroma. Malty flavor with caramel and pear, flowing into a slight caramelly bitter aftertaste. Not too well balanced and a bit too sweet.

Beerdedone (2615) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours a deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma of caramel, malt, toffee, and some spice. Flavor is caramel, molasses and some malt sweetness. a decent brew

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 12, 2007
Sweet rich beer, close to cloying at times, chocolate, caramel, cereal, and candy cherry. Lots of flavors in the malts keep it interesting with a lot of roasty and nutty flavors. Palate is thick and heavy, chewy towards the finish. Pours muddy brown with a soapy off-white head.
