MartinT (8661) - 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.

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.

DuffMan (8174) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle, served with the lamb course at Frederik V, Reykjavik. Medium amber brown, tan head that recedes to a clingy ring. Malty, bready aroma and flavour, dark caramel. Medium sweetness without much bitterness. Decent enough.

CaptainCougar (7133) - 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.

larsga (6816) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014
Medium beige head. Clear deep dark red body. Earthy spicy syrupy aroma with toasted sugar notes. Dryish spicy perfumy licorice taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy spicy roasted sugar aftertaste with caramelly notes. Decent, easy to drink, not that special. (0.5l draft at 73, Reykjavik.)

gunnar (6717) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 22, 2015
On tap at Kaldi, Reykjavik. Pours clear dark ruby with a small creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Taste is well balanced, but on the sweet side as expected, but a nice weak dry finish saves this one, decent dunkel.

ogivlado (6473) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 23, 2007
Bottled(330ml). -Pours a clear amber (nearly cola coloured) colour with medium sized white head and odd herbal coffee nose. Mild roasted malt and caramel aroma with slight chicory and mild hoppy notes. Bitter finish and overal quite thin.

Bottled, RBESG 07. A dunkel, rather sweet. I don’t think that this would stand out in a bigger beer nation.
