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.

A reddish brown appearance. Aroma is chocolatey but not overpowering. Flavor is slightly sour with a hint of chocolate and raisins. Fairly thin mouthfeel and overall not as flavorful as other Dunkels Ive tried. Pretty good but nothing that really stands out.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2003
One of the better dunkels I've run into. Deep red, thin off-white head. Nose full of malts and light roasts. Flavor full of caramel malts, lightly toasted, pleasingly sweet. Good stuff.

fishonmyplane (502) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - NOV 19, 2003
Great dark red color with a creamy offwhite head. The flavor is very complex, with lots of sweet malts, fruit, a hint of honey, and some bitterness. The palate is very nice but a bit thin, and there isn't much of an aftertaste. A very good dunkel.

MaBeer1972 (1430) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Nice deep ruby brown color. Good roasty flavor. Not as heavily-bodied as the DeGroen's I just had. Nicely balanced sweet-roasty malt finish! Yea!

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2003
UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 Very carbonated dark clear copper body with a great foamy head, generous and long-lasting. Aroma is malty and showed hints of herbal honey and brown sugar. The taste is definitely on the sweet end, dark earthy fruits with notes of smoke in the finish. So quaffable that you basically feel the water quality used in this concoction was as good as it gets. Aftertaste is... fresh, like I had just brushed my teeths with more toothpaste than I should have used. Still, what I prefered about this beer is its refreshing lager character combined with a marvellous creamy round texture which makes you keep it on the tongue for a while before swallowing. Cheers Todd.

Nice dark amber/red. Foamy white head. Malty chocolate caramel smell. Sweet coffee bitter flavor. The bitterness is quite nice but doesn't overpower everything. It isn't an overload of hops bitter. Quite nice but I've had better.

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Deep amber-brown color, with a huge tan head. Nice lace as well. Malty sweet aroma, with roasty undertones. Some caramel as well. Malty-sweet flavor, yet with a pleasant raosted and slightly acidic crispness.

presario (4877) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
Slightly acidic but pleasant aroma. Dark reddish brown. Light caramel head. Malty, plummy and even chocolate notes. Refeshing and intriguing. Light finish.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2003
Nice marriage of prunes and sweet earth...Slight tobacco effigy in hints of sugar cane...Promise is cultivated but its complexity is not tenacious enough to my liking...

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 25, 2003
In the glass a translucent deep mahogany color, the head mastodonic in size, the texture spumescent and the color a winsome tan. As the head dissolves a satiny sheet of lace is formed to conceal the glass. Nose has hints of caramel, sweet, crisp and fresh, a treat for the senses with start lightly sweet and loaded with malt, top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is prickly in its acidity, the hops appropriate to the style, droughty aftertaste that is long lasting, a fine quaffing beer and a pleasure to sample.
