oh6gdx (20827) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Bottled (From bierzwerg.de). Deep coppery brown colour with a small beigeish brown head. Aroma is ripe fruits, raisins, mild toasted notes as well as some sweet malts. Flavour is very similar, with a nice smoked wooden touch to it. This one actually gets better as it gets closer to room temperature. Nice one!

minutemat (1820) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Bottle as Chicago Williams BBQ edition, thanks to Beerhunter111. Pours dark brown with smokey aroma. Taste brings smoked malt, dark roasted notes, nuts and a slight bitterness. Taste seems a little subdued, but drinkable and no doubt great with BBQ ribs!

Die Brauerei Eichhofen hat zwei dunkle Biere im Sortiment, die auch beide den selben Alkoholgehalt aufweisen. a) Premium Dunkel
Das Bier ist dem Spezial-Dunkel sehr ähnlich, aber überhaupt nicht säuerlich, wie das andere Dunkel. Der Antrunk ist schön frisch-röstmalzig mit einer angenehmen Süße. Im Hauptteil ist das Bier schön süffig mit angenehm süßlich-röstmalzigen Tönen. Diese könnten aber durchaus stärker ausgeprägt sein. Der Nachgeschmack ist schön leicht herb-röstmalzig-süßlich mit sehr angenehm-abgewogener Note. --> Ein sehr leckeres Dunkel. Jetzt bräuchte ich von dem Spezial-Dunkel eine B-Probe um sicherzugehen, dass es immer einen leicht säuerlichen Touch hat und die Biere nicht doch identisch sind!
Test vom 17.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,13,12,13,12,13 - 12,70

b) Spezial Dunkel
Säuerlicher und trocken-malziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist trocken-säuerlich mit einer schönen frischen Note. Der Hauptteil wird vollmundig-malzig mit einer deutlichen, aber angenehm säuerlichen Note. Die Hefe macht sich auch durch einen milden Unterton bemerkbar. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang mit einer schönen säuerlichen Röstmalzigkeit - leicht trocken mit angenehmem Espressoton.
--> Ein sehr leckeres trübes Dunkel. Sehr zu empfehlen!
Test vom 16.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,12,13,12,13 - 12,55

BJONESAF (2) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2013 does not count
Thin dark beer with almost a purplish color with a bit of caramel and chocolate (but light). No bitter/sour, but mildly sweet. Light on the tongue, not fizzy, a bit soft. Would be awesome with a bread type dish

Bamsen78 (3313) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle @ Zentraleuropäischer Wahnsinn 2. Pours clear ruby amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt with roasty and fruity touches. Roasty onset with a lot of malty and fruity notes, but suddenly it just stops. Where is the rest of it?! Slightly metallic aftertaste with roasty and malty touches. OK.
