NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Sweet malt, caramel and mild roasted nuts in the aroma. Brown with hints of dark amber. Small head. Sweet caramel malt from fore to finish. Caramel and even some chocolate notes. Very one dimensional, but also smooth and comforting.

chriso (7365) - 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 (5116) - 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.

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.

Sitting on forest soil is refreshing.

On tap at a beer garden in Prague. Chestnut brown color, weak aroma. Roasted and malty tastes, but nothing special.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Red apple in color. Full foaming cream. Sweet roast and chocolate aromas, with hints of raisin and dust. Quite nice. Sweet malts and caramel with a hint of banana in the flavor. Not bad really, for a beer like this.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2005
[At Křbenhavnske Řldage 2005] A clear brown beer with a small orange head. The aroma is sweet roasted and rather fruity. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and a dry roasted end.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Chestnut to copper color with a small layer of tiny tan bubbles. Great color just not much head out of this bottle. Mild sweetened nut and hint of roasted malt in the aroma. Light mocha flavors with a touch of hops late in the quaff. A very unassuming and drinkable dunkle. I certainly could sit and drink this all evening. Very smooth on the palate.

MiP (13598) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Bottle. Semi-malty aroma. Brown colour. Malty taste, a little hoppy. Good mouthfeel.
