Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Vrey attractive glassy red amber color with a thich foam head. The aroma is strong of malt sweet characters, some fruit and alcohol. I would have expected this to be higher than 5%. There is a lot of caramel and roasted scent to this, as well as a bit of cherry. Flavor falls off a bit in my opinion. Some metallic tastes come through a heafty malt body. THe palate however is pretty enjoyable, smooth all around. A good malt and fruit blend makes for one tastey beer.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Very solid dunkel, but slightly astringent... almost sour. Not as malty as I would have liked after comparing it to the Kulmbacher

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2005
Bottled. Roastmalty, slightly coffeish with cocoa-like notes. Dry hop-bitter, roastmalty taste. Coffeish notes. Ends quite dry. Full body for the style with a smooth mouthfeel. Would love to have this on tap, as it is a little behind the best Czech dunkels I had fresh from tap. Great stuff.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured a rich reddish-brown color producing a 1/2 inch thick head of rapidly dissipating foam. The aroma is incredible. The nose was of fresh, dark roasted malts with a hint of cocoa. The taste started with rich roasted malts, hazelnut and a hint of molasses. Hops come next nicely balancing the malt sweetness carring it through to the end. A subtle sting of espresso in the finish leave s you with the perfect mixture of sweetness and bitterness. The feel was light-medium bodied, yet creamy. This might be the best of the non-Doppelbock German beers I have sampled. This beer is fantastic and I strongly recomend this one.

Gmku (299) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Deep beautiful mahogany pour and a dense light brown head of foam. Big aroma of malt and caramel, flavor’s all malt with a little hops. Almost syrupy sticky and sweet. Love it.
