UPDATED: DEC 28, 2007 Courtesy of Papsoe. Thanks, Henrik. The aroma is quite light, but features dry malt, grassy hops, a hint of cola and some very faint chocoff. The body is a rich wood colored brown, but fully transparent, giving it a polished hardwood look. The head is clingy, off-white, two fingers thick and quite lasting. Quite fruity on the first sip with hints of spiced applesauce, fresh green apples and lightly toasted dry malts. Very subtle and delicate, but strong in it’s lingering quality with stays with you long after you have swallowed. I get some light caramel notes as well along with a hint of wheat cereal and warm toasted grains. The head on successive pours is quite pretty with a frothed up capuccino appearance. I find this beer to be drastically better than it is rated. Maybe I got the golden ticket bottle, but this is an amazingly well done dunkel I’m drinking right now.

Bottle. Amber color with a nice head. Malty mouthfeel with some roastiness and spices. Fruity smell. Reminded me somewhat of a Sam Adams. That obviously doesn’t help much because there are lots of Sam Adams brews. Eh, I was drunk at the time.

JoeinDahlem (1325) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2006
Bottle from a friend’s cellar. Deep golden-brown, somewhat thin head. Rye in the nose, and I think some chocolate. Chocolate and coffee are faint in flavor, which is dominated by rye, slightly dry with healthy bitterness to balance out mild sweetness. Dark wheaty, malty finish. Like many dark German beers, I want more oomph from this one, but still a nice beer.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 15, 2006
Slightly hoppy, bitter. Very very watery and thin mouth feel like said earlier, doesn’t really taste much. So far I’m quite disappointed with german winter beers, since they seem to be more light than regular beers.

pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown with a little off-white head. Gentle malty aroma - somewhat restrainted. Malty and a little sweetness in the flavor. Finishes of with soothing bitterness and a little metallic note. Nice winterbier.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2005
Bottled. Clear reddish-brown with a large beige head. Malty and nutty aroma. Flavor is a bit disappointing, just some light, sweet maltiness, with a hint of roastiness. Nice body and sweet, malty and hoppy finish. (051231)
