Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Plörriger und überaus trockener Malzantrunk mit wenig hefigen Beinoten, leicht röstig. Alles in allem ist das Bier aber mild und langweilig, die Trockenheit ist zu stark. Zum Ende immer röstiger und damit besser werdend, weniger plörrig, im Nachgeschmack herb, die Röstigkeit ist hier gut abgepasst. 12/8/8/8/7/8

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Tap @ Micro Bar. A bit hazy, dark reddish brown appearance with a tan head and good lacing. Toasty, nutty, caramel malty, a bit roasty, a little earthy aroma. Toasty, hazelnut, caramel, a little burnt cracker flavor. Pretty solid.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Bottle. Clear chestnut brown. Stale dark crackers and bread aroma with a small bit dry dog food. No hop aroma. Light body. Toaster bread crumb malt. Wet dog hair and mineral water. Metal flakes and red apple skins. Low sweetness, low bitterness, fizzy carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (7773) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 7, 2009
Good dense and finebubbled, dirty-cream head over cola-coloured beer. Sweet dark malts, dark bread, maybe some molasses and manure. Sweet, dark malts, more dark bread. Bit soft drink finish, but aftertaste is bitterish, even hoppy. Rather spritzy MF, if not fizzy; light bodied. Very drinkeable, rather agreable dark lager. Beats anything I had so far from Iceland by lightyears.

Rune (7760) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2011
Praise for Snegurochka who provided this one for our rating session. Clear, dark amber body, tiny beige head. Roasted caramel malts to the nose, bready notes. Plain roasted sweet malts in flavour. Dry, sour-bitter end. About par (Tromsř, 22.06.2011).

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 17, 2007
My Bottom Line:
This accessible Dunkel’s bready pils malts form a chewy, drinkable body where roasted nuts and fruity caramel chit-chat with the herbal Saaz hoppiness until the very end of the sip. No world-stirring topics are undertaken, but a pleasantly honest moment is spent, and that’s all it takes to proclaim "goodness", really.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the reddish copper.
-The nose of this one is not as well developed as their Pilsener’s.
-This very much tastes like their Pilsener with a simple dark malt addition for colour and a slightly different flavor character; not that that’s a bad thing.

Bottle; 12.08.07.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle thanks to fonefan: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with a large clumpy-lacing froth of light tan head. Has a sweet dark caramel malty nose with some light smoky notes and dark fruity complexity. Body starts with some over-carbonation and lightly sweet dark caramel malts with a touch of oxidation and raisins before a drier bready finish with some lingering faint smoke. A pretty true to style and drinkable dunkel.
