Derbeth (271) - Kraków, POLAND - JUL 24, 2013
Aroma: dark chocolate, some roasty notes, caramel, slight herbs from hops. Black colour, frothy head. Medium sweetness, light to medium bitterness. Oily feel, soft carbonation. Not bad, fortunately is not too sweet, but also nothing exceptional.

Cornfield (5452) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This poured a reddish brown with medium carbonation and a slender tan head. The aroma is like that of wort in a brewhouse. The flavor is caramel malt with an odd mineral water kind of a finish that left a film on my tongue. My dunkel experiences are rarely good...

ClubGonzo (3869) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near-brown red-hued body with a medium light beige foamy short-lived head. Nose is light roasty caramel tones with hints of cereals and raisins. Taste is straight malty tones with hints of caramel. A bit watery mouthfeel. Too simple to convince.
