It’s hazy orange-brown with a creamy head and the aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel and nuts. The flavour is moderately sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, light fruit and nuts, and the finish is slightly dry. It’s a nice and soft, and yet refreshing dunkel.

bierkoning (9822) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 Gift from the brewer. Tap, the brewery doesn’t bottle anymore. Malty coffee aroma and flavor. Strong barnyard smell. Bitter, caramelly aftertaste. Hazy dark color. Very interesting beer from this tiny village brewery. Bottle tasted more than 10 years later. Brown color. Caramel aroma with some grassy hops. Malty sweetish flavor with caramel and milk chocolate. Bready, sticky mouthfeel. Pleasant.

pivnizub (8574) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - DEC 24, 2008
Bottle, kindly delivered by Frankenland! A bit hazy, chestnut-amber coloured with creamy beige head. Caramelly and hoppy, but also metallic nose. Moderate sweetish-bitter flavour, light bodied to thin. Traces of caramel in the metallic-bitter finish. Not really convincing, not typical for the style........

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2008
Bottle. Hazy, chestnut-brown colour with a beige medium-sized foamy head. Moderately sweet, toffee-ish and toast-malty aroma with lighter notes of vanilla and shy herbal hops. Light-sweet flavour, slim bodied, but not watery mouthfeel with a well-matured carbonation. Toasty malt-accented taste with caramel. Herbal notes show up towards the moderately dry and not consequently lasting finish. Nice enough [09.XII.08].

JorisPPattyn (7716) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2009
Medium dark-yellow head over faintly hazy foxy-amber beer. Nice bready & leafy/earthy notes, dark malts announcing themselves. Dry, melanoidin-determined taste, faintly nutty and leafy. Sweetish finish with a hint of coffee. Soft creamy MF, well-carbonated. Long, faintly wry aftertaste. Very nice Dunkel (or rather, Bernsteinfarbiges!) Many thanks to DonS!

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 9, 2010
bottle, mit Dank an Frankenland! Hazy brown colour, large and creamy off-white head. Malty nose with caramel. Malty base, caramel, biscuits and some floral hops in the lingering caramelly finish. Good!

kappldav123 (4582) - Nordhausen, GERMANY - DEC 29, 2008
Unlabeled bottle. Beer in the glass looks really good. Nice, creamy head. Starts mild and malty, not too roasty, fine smoky finish. Very drinkable. Very good beer!

Das dunkle Dremel schäumt sahnig-fein, aber nicht sehr hoch auf. Den Duft kann man als karamel-süßlich beschreiben. Das kann man dann auch im Antrunk schmecken: Erst Karamel, dann Röstmalz (verhalten, nicht als Explosion), dann brotig-malziger Abgang. Mal ganz was anderes. Vom Kollegen Frankenland weiß ich, dass bei Dremel "handwerklich gebraut" wird, also jeder Sud ein bisschen anders schmeckt. Dieser, aus dem meine Flasche stammt, sei nicht so gelungen. Das erklärt wohl auch den Hauch von zu lange getragener Socke, der über dem ganzen Geschmackserlebnis liegt und eine bessere Bewertung verhindert. Dennoch: ordentlich Test vom 19.1.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,9,9,4,9 - 8,90

Kristall-König (2102) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Im Geruch moderat malzig und leicht schokoladig. Antrunk süßlich. Danach trockener, schokoladig mit hintergründiger Fruchtnote. Leider wirken die an sich schönen Aromen etwas verdünnt. Im Schluß wird das Bier bitterer. Könnte kräftiger sein. Trinkbar aber allemale. Ein Dankeschön an Frankenland für dieses Bier aus einer Kleinstbrauerei. Auch hier keine Flaschenwertung, da kein Etikett die Flasche ziert. Test vom 17.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche
