locarboy (129) - USA - FEB 25, 2007
Pours dark brown, about the color of a brown ale. Nice off-white head about 1.5 inches. Fuzzy carbonation. Malty carmel aroma. No lacing down the glass. Sweet up front with carmelized sugar and chocolate flavor. Somewhat grainy, metalic finish with hop bitterness. A bit thin, but expected in a lager of 4.5% abv. A nice session beer.

really dark colour. Rather small head, but very consistent. Aroma of malt and roasted malt. Full taste of roasted malt, slightly sweet and malty body. Dry finish.

TBone (13710) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2009
Bottled "Dark Lager" (BB 10/2010)
Dark brown color, small beige head. Chocolate, cardboard, dominantly roasted rye-bread/malts in the nose. Medium-bodied - quite good body actually for 11 plato Czech lager. Caramelly, chocolaty, mild roasted malty flavor. Light hoppyness behind the sweet aftertaste, some licorice too. Balanced, ok Czech dunkel.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft @ Ferdinanda. Thick dark brown with thick thick tan head. Aroma is surprisingly spicy and enticing. The malts smell really dry and like there is caraway here. Soft palate but high carbonation. Slight sourness does not detract but would prefer it not to be there. But overall it’s a nice balanced brew. I especially appreciate how it’s spicy and dark and not sweet.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2011
Pours a very nice clear dark brown, sustained head, medium lacing. Somewhat thin-bodied and light. Smell has some woods/forest in addition to the usual caramel and cola. Flavors are moderately sweet (brown sugar) and light-to-moderate bitterness (grass). When cold, this is a very nice example of a mid-sweetness dunkel; not your overdone watery cola nut or waaay to sweet caramel variety. Balanced. Better than the sum of the parts and worth a revisit if better dunkels aren’t around. Bottle, very fresh as always from Piwoteka.

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Draught at Uusi Apteekki, Turku. Dark reddish brown color. The aromas of dark bread, caramel and toffee. In the flavor dark bread and toffee is on the top with some caramelly background notes. Slightly sweet but not overly so. Quite nice breakfast beer.
