Brown/red, big tan head. Sweet nose, a bit nutty, metallic, bready. OK caramel flavor, some chocolate, almonds, hint of bitterness.

Kinz (3530) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Aroma of artificial caramel and faint fruity gum. Decent appearance, medium copper with hint of ruby, quickly fading head, quite bright. Flavor was sugar sweet, hint of saccharin, and a taste of ash where the hops should have been. Not impressed.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Approporiate color, medium brown with reddishness, for most Dunkels, but the good ones I’ve had recently have been a tad darker. Immediately sweet and honeyish on the nose. Far more subtle hop action in the nose than the flavor. Flavor is too sweet ( a bit of molasses, but too much plain old sugar) and one dimensional for me. Aroma has some deep down bits that are hard to identify (flowers?) but the taste doesn’t do it for me.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2003
This brew was a dark copper color, had a moderate head with a caramel molasses aroma and a faint metallic note to it. Medium bodied, a mostly sweet toasty malt flavor with hints of chocolate and butterscotch. Dryish finish.

Medium/large tan head atop a clear copper body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel. Taste is overly sweet caramel -- no bitterness whatsoever, though a hint of burn in the swallow. Watery light body.

ztrvz (218) - st paul, Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2003
pours with significant lacy head that subcedes quickly. amber in color and very clear. sweet odor of caramel with a hint of malt. thin with moderate amount of tongue-tickling bubbles. a very sweet tasting beer--almost like candy towards the end of the pint. it's a decent value. i'd drink it again.

MaBeer1972 (1509) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 16, 2003
This was a big surprise for me. Deep reddish-brown color, with a beautiful frothy head out of the bottle. Nice sweet roasty malt flavor, not unlike some American Browns or perhaps even a Marzen. What a find! Beer Candy!!

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 8, 2003
The beer pours a limpid deep mahogany color, the head impressive in size, frothy in consistency, the color a light tan with the lace a fine sheet. Nose is all malt, lightly sweet, as is the start with the top skeletal in feel. Finish is crisply acidic, the hops minimal, the aftertaste dry. Drinkable, but certainly not very impressive in any category.
