3fourths (7798) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2013 draft at Brauerei Eichhorn in Forchheim. soft and toasty nose presents munich malt cracker and baked cookie goodness with a sweet touch of toffee candies and a rustic, slightly-chalky yeast with faint metallic touches. sweet with a slick texture on the approach, frothy carbonation and solid crispness to the body, tempered somewhat by the sweet toast / nut character of the dark malt. endlessly enjoyable.

Draft. Pours amber with a beige head. Toasted malty, with bread and grains, and lighter earthy hoppy notes. Toasted malty finish. Pretty good.

EithCubes (4628) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle as "Brauns Achhörnla", by 11.12. Very light dosing of caramel and nuts and earth in the nose, pours a very pretty chestnut with a sudsy beige head. Taste sweet, restrained, some dirt an grit, light roast, chocolate, and decent hops presence for a Dunkel. Very light body, smooth and stripped-feeling.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear, dark amber appearance with a light brown head. Slightly metallic, nutty, caramel/cracker malty aroma. A bit buttery, lightly metallic, rich caramel, nutty flavor. A few off flavors but not too bad.

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Bottled. Deep amber colour with a mediumsized off-white head. Aroma is mildly toasted malts, some slight caramel, toffee and dark berries. Flavour is sweet malts along with mild toasted notes. Also surprisingly hopped for a dunkel, has a quite bittery undertone to it. Mild sourish wood lurking in the background.

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle from Landbierparadies. Amber in colour with slight carbonation. Rich, butter and pear fruit aroma. Flavour of caramel and doughy malts with a touch of roastiness and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 31, 2010
(bottle, bought in Forchheim as Braun’s Eichhörnla) Clear, amber-coloured and effervescent hue with a big and light-beige foamy head. Slightly sweet and toasty malty aroma with nettle-like spices and subtle fruity notes. Light-sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a fizzy carbonation. Toasty malty taste with light notes of caramel and a distinctively herbal and spicy touch (nettles); quite dry, slightly bitter and toasty finish with berry fruity notes. Needs to be re-rated; otherwise pretty drinkable. 31.X.07

Quack-Duck (7517) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 26, 2008
bottle. The brown squirrel presents ittself quite dark in the glass, with a large beige head. Malty nose with a sour fruityness. Full-bodied, very malty with some hints of roasted malt and caramel, as well as a shy fruity sourness. Creamy texture.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2008
From tap in the brewery’s Biergarten. Red-brow amber with a dense head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and syrup. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of syrup, roasted malt, light coffee and the overall impression is somewhat disturbed by an unbalanced grapefruit in the finish.
