pubbe (493) - Højbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2006
Bottle. Pours dark brown with mostly diminishing light brown head. Burnt malt and caramel in the aroma. Flavor offers malt, hops and a profound cask wood note. Rather creamy on the palate. Average finish with some spiciness. Well made Dunkel.

Clear dark amber color with great head. Clear burnt flavor with a hint of liquorice a truly great Dunkel but only 4,9%.

pivnizub (9863) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2006
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, medium-sized fluffy off-white head, quickly diminishing; sweet, dark-malty nose with a tinge of molasses and some fruitiness; sweetish flavour with the faintest idea of bitterness, medium bodied; sweet-fruity and malty finish. A pleasant, well rounded brew, but nothing spectacular.......

imdownthepub (12594) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2006
On tap at GBBF ’06, 10 fl oz. Dark brown beer with thick head. Sweet fruity silky smooth beer with a heavy chocolated malt. Some burnt, roasted woody notes. Lacks a finish, being a little thin on the tongue at the end and retains a CO2 taste. A reasonable if unspectacular beer.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
Bottle from Germany. Translucent cherry-lacquered brown in color with a dense, spongy, 3/4" tan head riding on top for the duration of the beer. Aroma is delicately composed of french silk pie with chocolate graham crust, stark chocolate toffee, flame licked tree bark, and turtle fudge frozen custard. Flavor chimes in as lighter fairing. Cocoa dusted, crushed graham crackers. Silky chocolate trait folds back the fragile flavor layers. Liquefied chocolate wafers emit a vibe akin to a touch of room temp hot chocolate, cooled at its warmest state with an ice cube or two and dulled it down by doing so. Mildly roasted accents with circumstantial caramel drizzles. Errs on the light side, gently tossing over the tongue with a moment’s respite at more concrete semi-chocolate characteristics. A mild chocolate butterscotch generality gently weaves in and out as we go along. Light french silk custard comes out again the finish, coupling with a eased mocha torte airiness.

DanielBrown (4329) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2006
On tap at Andechs monastery, nr Munich. Smooth, cereal, choc Dunkel. Nice stuff, easily swiggable and sweet. Provides a nice hit.

Radek Kliber (6895) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 30, 2006
Dark amber with fizzy light tanned pour. Sweet, rich aroma of juicy malt, dark caramel. A bit to dry up front with strong carbonation followed by woody-caramel finish. Aroma promised much more.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2006
(Tap) Had at the International Beer Fest in Hamburg, Germany. Pours dark brown with beige head. Good flavoring includes roasted caramel and coffee. All in all, a nice dunkel.

HenrikSoegaard (12653) - Randers, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2006
Bottle. Creamy white excellent fully lasting head. Amber colour. Very nice looking beer. Week but nice malty aroma. Elegant flavor but not so powerfull. Oily palate. Well balanced but a bit anonymous beer.

EithCubes (5428) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Bottled. Pale mahogany pour with a staunch beige head. Chocolatey aroma with some toasted malt, nutty with some caramel. Full-flavored! Velvety smooth with the same flavor as in the nose, caramel strengthens. Splash of sweetness. As a minus, a bit thin, but that’s really the style, isn’t it? Lasting smooth, toasty, dry finish. Superb Dunkel, perhaps the most pleasant drinking experience I’ve had this week.
