Frank (2737) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Amber brown, small head of mixed bubbles. Nose is raisin sweet malts with a bit of an oxidized nutty element. Sugary sweet and with a dark fruit and caramel character. Too sweet really, it begins to cloy as the glass progresses. Medium bodied but lacking enough carbonation to keep it lively. I am not sure if this beer wants to be a dunkel or what but, whatever it is, it misses the mark.

gunnar (5108) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2010
0,5 l bottle. Poursd deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is weak roasted malts, light chocolate. Full bodied, very good for this low abv beer. Taste is full of light roasted malts, maybe a touch on the sweet side, but not too much. Here is caramel mixed with chocolate, even some noticeable liquorice, nice Czech dunkel.

rmasa (324) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 16, 2010
Rudy brown color, medium-sized, quite a longlasting white head; sweet toasted caramel aroma; thin to medium body, a bit sticky mouthfeel; flavor almost sickenly sweet of syrupy caramel (probably due to use of sweetener) based on relatively light maltiness; gladly the finish at least gives some idea of roasteness - though only hintful, and the bitterness is nowwhere to be found.

FatPhil (9007) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 12, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
Deep red, brief spongy beige head. Rich grainy aroma, sweet. Really grainy in fact, some huskiness. But also really sweet. Smooth, sweet body, rich roasty and sugary retronasals, carbonation soft. Residual sugars not only high, but I notice there’s saccharin in the ingredients, which I have to penalise them for. Tasty roast, but just too sweet. Drinkable, but leaves me thirstier due to the stickiness! (6:4:6:4:10=3.0)
Rerate: 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
5+ simple sweet dark lager aroma, tough of roast.
4 dark red, ring head
6 bacony retronasals. Pleasant roasty taste, quite dry in the burntness
3 refreshing palate, carbonation crisp.
12 more burnt and less sweet than the average czech dunkel.

Tap@Vltava, Helsinki. Dark brown with a nice beige head. Weak aroma of chocolate and caramel, flavor is nicely sweet, but not too sweet, mostly caramel and some coffee, very easy to drink. Nice dunkel.

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 8, 2009
29/10 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured darker reddish brown body with medium sized beige head. Quite ordinary caramel and coffee aroma. Flavor was balanced between sweetish caramel and coffee roasted malts. Pretty simple and none of those two is too prominent. Thinner to medium body, still it had quite short, slightly caramel finish. Some herbal hops might be emerging here, as well. Didn’t particularly like it as of ts simplicity and lack of stronger character, but it’s a decent brew for sure.
