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.

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.

Ernest (7374) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain/bread/nuts), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. Straightforward and a bit on the sticky sweet side, but pretty good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6850) - 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.

BBB63 (6557) - 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.

Poured a brownc olor with an off white head. Aroama was caramelly and some chocolate. Flavor was very watery and some caramel, thats about the only thing that stands out

Reddish brown and bodied. A roasty, nutty beer with a decent sweet finish. Good dunkel.

TheBeerGod (6029) - 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.

I didn’t even notice this was a green bottle with no date until I got home. What an atrocious trainwreck this turned out to be. Poured copper with a sudsy tan head. The aroma is of malt balls, some buttery diacetyl, stale fruits and foot odor. Against my better judgement I took a drink just of the sake of covering all aspects of a rating. Medium body with light carbonation. The taste starts horribly sour and malty. The finish has much of what was on the aroma only quite astringent and the added bonus of spoiled cooked veggies. This was awful, even for a drain pour.

Like a slightly thicker Warsteiner Dunkel in every way, a little bit better malty flavor, just not anything better than a little better than average.
