Reddish amber appearance with a small head. Bland aroma. Sugary sweet, malty flavor with some fruitiness. Slightly sour, thin finish.

Gromit (479) - Port Orchard, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2004
Pours a ruddy brown with a decent head which quickly fades with no lace on the glass. Smells of sweet malts and some light fruity esters. Tastes malty, as it should, with some fruits present. Raisins are definatly there. It's not overly complex but it is balanced in that it's not *too* sweet. I really don't detect any hops, though. Mouthfeel is much thinner than I expected, but creamy. Drinkability is pretty good but nothing special. A nice "dark" beer but a bit thin.

Bottled. This was an average very drinkable dunkel. Nothing really stood out.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 20, 2004
Not really all that "dunkely." Smells of caramel and nutella. Flavor is a bit sweet without the underlying complexity to justify it. Sorta bready, with a touch of real maple syrup and some brown sugar. I could drink a lot of this, yet I recognize its quality impairments.

jimhilt (2490) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Pours with a two-fingered off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a little lace. Light carbonation. Medium bodied. Nice clear, deep amber. Nose is slightly malty. Starts smooth, malty and strong plum/raisin flavor, finishes smooth with hints of plum. A very good dark lager.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2003
This beer was quite tasty, reminded me alot of Bass with just a bit more spiciness and bight, with a big malty character in the mouthfeel. Nicely enjoyable.

JPDIPSO (5133) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Brown with just a hint of orange in color. Light tan fluffy head. Harsh, heavy molasses aroma with a hint of soap and floral hops. Sweet nutty flavors. Pecans and hazelnuts soaked in vermouth. As it warm the alcohol aroma comes out and seems to take on some back qualities.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Brown/red, big tan head. Sweet nose, a bit nutty, metallic, bready. OK caramel flavor, some chocolate, almonds, hint of bitterness.

Kinz (3567) - 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.
