Maybe if you burnt your tongue or dipped the rim in manure Dinkelacker Dunkel (Dark) could taste bad. Otherwise this is a stellar beer, with a potent cherry-wood flavor and aroma, smooth body and plesant after taste. If you cannot taste this beer, please consult your doctor immediately. From the bottle, and especially from the tap, this beer is top notch.

Great dark beer. This is from the region I grew up and I had several of those. It is not as heavy as other Dark beers yet still aromaful malty taste.

11.2 oz green bottle, I’m hoping for no skunkage.
It pours a dark brown with a hint of reddich/orange/gold. The head is fizzy and off-white.
The smell is classic, no skunk here. It has caramel, cocoa, and dark bread. Along with this is some honey and some light husky grain. I’m not really smelling any hops.
The flavor is excellent, everything you want in a dunkel. It is smooth and caramally with some cocoa, raisin, and munich malts. The hops are present in the flavor and add a little zest to it.
It is extremely drinkable. A winner.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2003 This is a great beer.
Rich, somewhat spicy, with hints of
licorice and toffee, really a
great complex dark lager.

Not a bad beer at all. Both draft & bottle(if fresh)
It has a bit of a sweet taste & more aftertaste than I want but all in all most fair. I like warsteiner dunkel much better though..

A fairly rich aroma with a bit of molasses. Quite light and easy, but has a good sweeness in the finish, maybe a hint of chocolate. Good stuff.

The bottle says it’s a lager. It has the consistency and texture of a lager but a nice potent flavor and aroma.

Definately not one of my favorites but i have to give it,it's due.nice dark color with a fast fading head, lite carbonation.aroma was malty little to no hops detected.The taste was ok,sweet and malty with a decent aftertaste that was slightly biting on the bitterness but not bad sweet and malty again.like i said nothing real special but had to be tried once which is why i only bought one of these.
