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.

Dark bronze in colour, clear beer with a nice mousse. Nice dark malty flavour, hints of dark chocolate, bitters. Nice medium full body, dry aftertaste which keeps on even by having food.

Draft @ epcot. Pours dark brown with a thin white head. Caramel malts with just a slight hint of smoke and bitter chocolate. A really great dunkel!

turbothy (1055) - Bonn, GERMANY - DEC 27, 2004
Very easy-drinking dunkel. Pours brown with a good-sized head. Malt aroma. Quite bitter, almost ale-like.

Tiny brownish head. Clear roast brown colour. Rather neutral aroma with hints of coffee. Very roasty palate with the typical Schwarzbier notes of caramel and coffee. Good one.

Erasmus_ro (1192) - Alabama, USA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle BBE 05/13 03/02/13. Pours ruby red with a large, beige, classy head. Aroma is mixed fruits, caramel, light marzipan. Taste is fairly dry with breadiness, some caramel. Herbal hops coming surprisingly strong on the finish. Palate is medium, not much carbonation. Very enjoyable. A go-to beer for the style if available.

Was surporised again. Had avoided buying an Altenmunster due to having had some bland one long back. This might not be great, but the surprise of being decent took me by surprise.
