Draft at Prost. Big off-white head, nice deep brown, ruby-toned body. Clean and straightforward and easy to drink like a lager, but also somewhat unsatisfying that way with such a light body--the lager dilemma (you have to be in the mood, probably). Very thin flavor, but still tasty enough if you take a big pull from the glass.

BBB63 (6474) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2003
Dark amber hue with little head and almost no lacing. Raisin, date, molasses, pumpernickel, and underline spices in the aroma. Strange sour and sweet taste initially followed by a moldy spice and then suddenly hoppy midsection, the finish was dry and smoky. Despite it obvious character flaws, this beer was not really that bad, heck, it was good because it surprised me in every glup. I drank many Dinkel-Acker beers when I lived in Germany.

PorterPounder (6290) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Good formidable Dunkel. Nice deep, dark brown pour with a thick mocha head that diminshes quite quickly with just a tad of lacing. Detect a hint of raisins in aroma breaking through the mainly malty aroma. The most prominent flavor is similar to baked brown bread - the canned moist, variety with a little bit of raisins thrown in for good measure. All in all, an enjoyable diversion. Finishes strong - no aftertaste.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Reddish brown and bodied. A roasty, nutty beer with a decent sweet finish. Good dunkel.

radagast83 (5812) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Bottle. Slight hint of cherry in there. Dark color, with a flavor you’d expect from a dark beer. Sweet, roasty, and malty all over.

TheBeerGod (5595) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2003
Pours a dark brown with a nice fluffy tan head. The nose is malty and sweet. The body seemed thin to me but also has more malt and definite chocolate notes. Seemed like a weaker or thinner version of Spaten Optimator. Not a bad beer, just not outstanding.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5591) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a dark mahogany color with a large tan head. The aroma is sour dark malts with a hint of molasses. The flavor is sour dark malts with a lightly roasty element and an undertone of tangy molasses.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Deep caramel in color with a creamy off-white head, this has a solid molasses and caramel aroma. The flavor is lightly roasted malt, caramel, a touch of ripe apple, and a nutty bitterness. Pretty decent dunkel.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle best i’ve had from this company. Pours a light brown body with some malty caramel aromas. A little like a bock but more like a pils. Not bad for shop rite.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 22, 2004
Dark chocolate ruby brown with a large tan head. The aroma is very fruity with some cherries, brown sugar, honey and fig. Almost like a dopplebock here. The flavor was smooth and balanced and it finished medium bodied with a full mouthfeel. This was a good dunkel!
