Deep dark brown with a nice head. Malty sweet caramel aroma, and the flavor is a clean version of the same. Very pleasant easy drinking beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A dark clear brown dunkel with a mahogany hue. A wonderful aroma of ginger bread, vanilla, cinnamon hearts. In mouth, a light dunkel with bananas, cinnamon, a bit of ginger, well balanced. A great dunkel, atypical in nature. On tap at Cíest What, March 21, 2009.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber colour, sticky white head. Very nice light fruity aroma, toasted malt, plums and a touch of chocolate. Flavour however, was very weak and watery. Light sweet malt but there was a strange waxy taste that I donít like at all. Maybe this was off, but I had it at Volo like many others.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 Yeasty aroma, initially some sweetness and grainess from the nutmeg or whatever. creamy mouthfeel though with thinness. It may have been nirotap without Cíest What telling us. Sourness, yet Satisfying bitterness in aftertaste. Chocolate brown colour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2005 Re-Rate March 2005 - Dark ruby tinged brown body with a beige head and nice lacing on the glass. Malty aroma , and a touch of yeasty "tartness" over notes of caramel. The precise words for which escape me. Similar flavours with a sort of dry nuttiness balancing the malty caramel sweetness. Nice medium bodied palate. Nice to see another great offering from Denisons. 7/4/7/3/15 3.6<P> Original Rating Part of a sampler. Dark brown. Sweet and malty in both the aroma and the flavour. Not bad. 4/3/5/3/13 2.8

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2007 On tap (Volo) 500ml
Appearance :Brown Ėruby copper with presentable rocky tanned top.
Nose :Mineral, fruity Saaz like aroma with grainy overtones. Refreshing.
Sweet base with clean gentle roast. Golden-brown malt. Sweet middle with slightly earthier finish. Perhaps a bit lighter stylistically than some murkier German dunkels but not shallower by any means. Clean classic.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2007 Draught at Volo. A clear red-amber with an off-white head. Aroma interesting - sour yeast, wood, nutty malt, some hops, turpentine? Flavour very wheaty/grainy, with roast malts, slighly harsh hop bitterness - medium bodied and a dark, oaky mouthfeel, tart and enjoyable. Liked it much better than my first taste in Feb/Mar í05. ** update January 2007 - seems better than I remember - have to bump it a tad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2005 On tap at Bar Volo. Reddish brown with a large off-white creamy head. Body is sparkling and nicely carbonated. Very light aroma of malt and spice. Flavour of roasted malts with a bit of hops and caramel. Not bad, but I donít think Dunkels are my thing.
