kappldav123 (4727) - GERMANY - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle looks simple, a bit like a cheap beer. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Starts malty, fruity like plum and lemon, quite sourish background. Mild dry notes. Finish still dominated by malty-sourish notes. Not my favourite.

harrisoni (13261) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2013
Bottle at The brewery. Mid brown colour lasting beige head. Some yeast some malt. Not much hop. Ok.

TAR (2441) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2013
Draught at Brauerei Eichhorn, Nov. 2012: Bronze with golden highlights. Creamy and persistent cap of clingy meringue. Clean, airy, expressively malty nose teems with melanoidins, hazelnut, browned toffee, nuts, earthy cocoa, and a vibrant "green" hoppiness. Underlying tropical fruitiness. Firm, snug carbonation. Tease of estery fruitiness yields to wonderfully crisp, toffee-kissed Munich and a savory medley of fresh baguette and creamed coffee. Splash of licorice underscores the maltiness with deft restraint. Pronounced bite of yeast and minerals accentuates the seductively juicy malt bill. Hops pack plenty of luster, as well. Exceptionally succulent florals artfully mirror the fat and juicy melanoidins. Chewy, mouth-filing dextrins and a bitter edge of pumpernickel bread saturate the dry, cleanly attenuated finish. A flawless example devoid of the boring cola dullness, etc. An amazingly clean, quaffable, and intricate version.

3fourths (7879) - 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.

blipp (5967) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft. Pours amber with a beige head. Toasted malty, with bread and grains, and lighter earthy hoppy notes. Toasted malty finish. Pretty good.

EithCubes (4729) - 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.

TwoSipDip (8948) - 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 (20239) - 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 (6159) - 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.
