Bottle. Deep russet color. Nice off-white head, minimal lacing. Aroma is fruity, malty, toffee. Hints of hops in aroma. Body is medium, smooth mouthfeel. Taste is malty, good carbonation levels. Hops are peppery, not overdone, but present. Very pleasant beer.

Hazy murky brown color with medium head. Heavy malt, ginger bread. Tastes a lot like Christmas -- if it could have an actual taste this would be like drinking a whole pint of Christmas. Nutty and malty with the sweetess touch of warmth.

jpm30 (1587) - East Central, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2006
From a 1pt. 9oz. euro brown bottle with no bottled/freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a murky ruby hued brown with a creamy pale tannish head that settled into a thin creamy lacing. Had a caramel buttery and nutty nose with whiffs of spicy hops and raisins. A malty crisp, creamy smooth full bodied mouth feel, good drinkability. Caramelized buttery and sour dark fruits taste, the fruits have a sour candy-like quality, light on the sweetness, a little hazelnut, a nice spiciness from the hops towards the end and a semi-dry, caramel malty finish. A good Dunkel from Wolnazacher, tasty and balanced, very qauffable.

Very attractive medium brown, hazy appearance. Nice off-white head. Malty, spicy aroma. Toasted malts blended with a butter toffee taste to leave a well- rounded overall impression.

Darkover (1518) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Hazy red color with a big beige head. Aroma is really sweet with caramel, chocolate and dark fruits. Flavor of caramel malt and some sour fruit. Dry finish.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Dark ruby brown body with a spongy tan head. Wonderful chewy malted aroma. Succulent raisins, sticky sugar, and white grapes. Dark bubbles cling the glass inside the body and seem to hang suspended the hazy liquid. Moist gummy mouth feel. Chewy nuts, toasted grain, butter, and a light hop bitterness. Delicious.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2002
Slightly hazt dark red color. Semisweet nose of caramel and mat. Body is spritzy with notes of smoke, roast and malt. Finishes with a nice hoppy bite.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Murky brown color, fluffy tan head. Sweet earthy aroma, malty. Malty and nutty flavor, once again very earthy. Mouthfeel was comparable to raspberry iced tea: dry. Not bad, but I'd skip it over.

Caramel colored body with a thin, off-white head. Chewy, malty aroma with light chocolate, toffee, varied bits of citrus fruit and some nuts. A moderate body that is fairly full, but doesn't last long. The nice malt character lasts well into the flavor. Great toasted malts balance the sweetness. Just a touch of hops in the finish adds variety and depth. A really enjoyable and drinkable dunkel.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2003
50 cL bottle, goblet, 55 degrees F. Tan head is average sized, frothy, creamy and short lived. The body is amber to brown and quite murky. Cookie, caramel, mild coffee, milk chocolate malt (H); flowery hops (L); tawny port, oak, toffee, nutmeg aromas. Heavily sweet flavor becomes a moderately sweet finish with a light "iced tea" bitterness. Medium-heavy body, velvety texture, soft carbonation. Flavor falls off in the finish. The bottom line is: a touch too sweet for mee, but it has a great aroma and mouthfeel.
