UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Black with a red tint. Thick khaki colored head that fades slowly. Some lacing, and a lasting layer of foam. It looks wonderful. Malt and caramel aroma. Flavor is heavy roasted malt and smoke with caramel as well. Full bodied and easy to drink. Outstanding dunkel, served on draught at Ferdinanda in Prague.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2005
Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense, August 2005. Quite deep red colour. Sweetish malt character with some chocolate, plus something fruity and slightly sour - reminded me of tamarind. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Hints of bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent.

Sigmund (4956) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2005
Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense. Dark ruby colour when held to the light. A bit fizzy. Moderate aroma of caramel malts. Flavour is moderately sweet with caramel and chocolate notes. Hints of blackcurrants. Some hops in the finish, more than in many other dunkels.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
On tap in Praha:

The Lure:
Creamy foam on mahogany-brown. Roasted berries and earthy wilderness project oncoming tartness. Dry red wine grapes are perceived.

The Festivities:
A cushion-y malt core is topped by sweet cherries, grapes and various berries. Earthy humidity meets light sourness, which gets uncomfortable after a while.

Transcendence:
Sitting on forest soil is refreshing.
