Beershine (5212) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Bottle @ Konji African restaurant. Dark orange-brown with no lasting head. Simplistic sweet bready malt aromas and flavors. Is a clean, simple bready beer with a watery palate. Not bad, just simple.

Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 19, 2012
0.5 l bottle. Dark amber color. Sweet nutty and slightly caramelly aroma. Sweet nutty and toffeish flavor with some chocolatey, earthy and herbal notes in the background. Smooth and drinkable. Good dunkel.

kappldav123 (4733) - GERMANY - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle looks simple, but good, the beer in the glass dark brown, small head. Starts malty and strong, quite dry without being too much, fruity like plums. Finish a bit earthy but also well balanced. Quite drinkable. Good beer!

jfb (3697) - Freising, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2012
(bottle) pours a clear ruby-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of roasted grain and light vanilla, with hints of herbal hops, grass and caramel. flavour is mostly the same, with a slightly harsh graininess and a buttery-smoky chewy finish, quite rustic overall. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

kiwianer (3319) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2011
Die Schaumkrone dieses Ammendorfers hält recht gut, farblich ist es kräftig braun-rot. Geschmacklich süßlich fruchtig, der Alkohol kommt in einer kombination mit trocken fruchtigen Röstmalzaromen angenehm durch! Die Hopfennote wirkt jung aber nicht grasig, in Kombination mit der süße die fast etwas zuckrig wirkt ist sie ziemlich Speziell. Interessante und nicht so häufige Aromenauswahl, das Testen lohnt sich, ich würde es häufiger trinken, aber nicht so häufig, denn es sollte schon etwas besonderes bleiben. Test vom 24.5.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,13,11,12,12 - 12,00

TAR (2445) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle, best by 4/13/13, consumed in December 2012: Beaming coppery gold. Creamy ivory head. Pleasant nose of hazelnut coffee, licorice root, dark toffee, breadcrust, and spruce-tip hops. Soft and compact carbonation. Initially dryly malty, with notes of hazelnut and breadcrust accompanying an earthy, wood-root spiciness. Splash of unsweetened chocolate coincides with a dusting of cocoa along with a wavering toffee richness and subsequent wave of anise-like woodiness. Malt is clean and silky, though isn’t exactly well-textured as there is a perceptible shortage of depth-lending scratchiness which leaves a void in terms of contrast. Somewhat papery, as well, though the juicy succulence that pervades, more than compensates. Finishes moist, with a soggy bread accent, and heavy on the licorice and earthy hops, with underlying spice. A well-crafted, malt-centric Franconian lager.

Shaney (2428) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2012
#681 Der Schaum ist leider zu schnell verflogen, ansonsten ist es kastanienfarben und schaut gut aus. Im Aroma nach naturbelassenem Joghurt leicht säuerlich. Äußerst liquider Antrunk und im Geschmack leicht und minimal würzig. Da fehlt ganz klar für ein Dunkles ein Malzkörper, der den Namen auch verdient. Hier ist alles nur ansatzweise vorhanden und kein Detail wirklich ausgeprägt. Hopfen ist m.E. kaum zu erschmecken. Ein Dunkles, dass trinkbar ist, aber zuviele Attribute auf der Strecke lässt! Test vom 22.1.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,9,9,8,9,9 - 9,05

armando629 (2405) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 10, 2010
0,5 l bottle, bought at Sörspecialista.hu, Budapest.
Poured brown with a fine lacing tan head. Moderated aroma whit toasted grains, sourish yeast, some fruity character, honey. Medium bodied beer with a light toasted grainy flavor, sweet caramel, a mild bit of hop in the finish. Drinkable but not a very exciting one.

Grima (2081) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2010
500ml bottle. Into the glass pours a dark brown beer with a fine, long-lasting crown. The smell is very sweet and nutty caramelly. The beer starts fabulous caramel-malty, very soft and pleasantly sweet. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, but the caramel dominates clearly! The further course is a little spicy, the sweet aroma is minimal pushed through a bitter-bitter tone to the side, but still felt good. It still adds a slight coffee flavor. Truly one of the best dark beers I rated the last few months!
