COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

oh6gdx (24523) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2005
Bottled. Dartk reddish brown, mediumsized white head. Bready malt aroma with hints of fruits and roast. Flavour is complex, mainly smoky wet wood, but also hints of chocolate. Finish is dryish. Not much aftertaste, but very wellbalanced.

BT (123) - Westchester, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Poured cream soda (caramel-like) colored with a loose off-brown head. Sweet aroma, nothing special; tasted of sweet malts, some caramel. Palette too thin for my tastes.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Pours red with tan head. Very sweet malty aroma. Flavors very interesting and complex. Took a few sips for my palate to adjust since I was just drinking ayinger ur-weisse, a very different brew. Big nutty flavor, quite dry considering the sweet aroma. Not what I was expecting. Leaves a strange aftertaste in my mouth that reminds me of blood. Not appealing. I hope they haven’t had any accidents in their brewery lately... Tried it again chilled quite cold. The bloody flaw no longer comes out. Thick smooth body. Still nothing special.

Eructoblaster (3661) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2005
Bottle - 500ml. Superb dark ruby body topped with a thick and lasting off-white frothy head. Lovely and complex malty aroma with brown sugar, toffee, nutty, flowery, plummy and toasty notes that reminds some barley wines. Taste is well balanced but is less complex than the aroma. Texture is very mild, and the mouthfeel ends with a fairly long hoppy finish. This is an excellent Dunkel.

SwedeDog (364) - Windsor, Connecticut, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Bottle. Clear and red with a big head. Leaves an ok lace. Not much aroma. Mild coffee, chocolate and mustiness. Very crisp taste. Starts very fizzy, almost seltzery. Roasted malts, chocolate, a little nutty and little woody. Finishes somewhat dry and hoppy. Towards the end of the glass, it loses the maltiness and just gets fizzy. Throughout the glass, there’s overtones of something faint that I can’t quite put my finger on ... light fruit, banana, maybe. Overall, it’s pretty good.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2005
Nice dark red color, little beige head. rich malty and caramel aroma, hints of nuts come up too with mild chocolate, smooth and rich aroma indeed. Chocolate stronger in flavor with malty caramel, ends with mildly dry mouthfeel. Roasted chocolate lasts in aftertaste. Could be fuller, still nice brew.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2005
Strong plum fruitiness in the toasty and sweet malty aroma. Clear brown body is topped by a creamy cover of light tan head. Fairly sweet and toasty with notes of bread, plums, chocolate and toffee. Gentle bitterness in the somewhat dry finish. Very clean and malty. Medium body with lucious, soft, creamy, texture that slides easily across the tongue with a gentle effervescence. Excellent! Bottle (Winooski Beverage Warehouse - Nov. 2004).

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2005
Dark colored, nice aromas. The taste was fine, but nothing really stood out about it. Seemed somewhat weak and watered down. Dunkel is one of my favorite styles, but this beer didnt stand out. Not very much complexity, was hoping for more.

Sammy (10681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Spice in dough aroma. Very smooth and creamy, high quality ingredients. Nice easy drink for lunch, a pint is a good serving measure. Sugar in there for fizz and sweetness. Touch of roast. Hops for some bitterness. Had a tap freshness to it.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 27, 2005
Golden, reddish-brown. Lively fizz with a moderate off-white, bubbly head. Smells of rich caramel, toffee, coffee and chocolate malt. First impression is nice and light, refreshing but well rounded. Seems a little thin and it loses complexity as I work my way down my boot glass. A decent beer, but pretty unimpressive. I was hoping for a more noteworthy experience from this one.
