Bottle from Mahlers Vinhandel, Frederikshavn. Nutty, sweet, some grain, some roasted malt, a hint of soot. A bit too thin and bland.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 29, 2009
Bottle probably from the Albert hypermarket in Chodov, Prague, shared with heavy
Poured a dark red body going black with a beige head that went away at a medium pace. Dry malty nose reminiscent of milk caramel, slightly roasty and sweet. Light roasty taste with notes of caramel, dry, not all that sweet for a Czech dunkel... maybe more coffeeish than chocolatey, but both descriptors are a bit stretched. Even some extremely weak notes of herbal hop floated in for a second once. It’s an ok dark beer that’s more a schwarzbier than a dunkel in my book but still not enough to care about it. All in all, a solid enough choice in a Czech supermarket.

inbirraveritas (1237) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 15, 2011
Draught at the „4th Czeh Beerfestival”, Bp. Dark brown/ruby colour with a medium, beige coloured head. The smell is sweetish. Sweet-sourish aroma dominated by caramel underpainted by light roastyness, texture is slick. The finish is rather sweet escorted by a moderate roasty bitterness. Overall rather on the sweet side, but not bad.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2005
Rating for "Ferdinand Dark Beer". Label slightly different than pictured with a white background at the bottom. ABV was 4.5%, as stated.

Best before 29/03/05, consumed on 01/04/05... damn! Bottle poured a deep, ruby red body with a small tan head. Sweet, bready malt aroma that was a little juicy. Flavor went from sweet to sour, then finished sweet again. Not many discernable flavors.
