EithCubes (4627) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle. Aroma of slight veggies, somewhat weak, slight fruitiness. Some malt but not a lot. Pours dark amber, almost nut-brown, eggshell head. Taste of dark malts, a little sweet caramel, light hops (this is essentially a Dunkel). Thick, prickly, slightly oily feel, medium body, and a dry, dark aftertaste. Faint fruitiness. Not bad for a session, but this one needed more punch.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2006
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with a small creamy off-white layer. Slightly sweet and toasted malt aroma with hints of alcohol. Light sweet flavour, toast-malty, slightly bready, crusty taste with a tinge of vegetables; medium to light bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel; bittersweet slim finish. Pretty drinkable but not to be overrated.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2006
At the brewery tap. Creamy, light brown head. Virtually no lace. Fully lasting head. Clear, amber to brown body. Aroma of smoke and light malts. Lightly sweet, lightly bitter initial flavour. Lightly bitter finish. Lightly bodied. Soft carbonation. This is a weird beer. Looks like a mixture between a Rauchbier and a Dunkel, but neither the Dunkel, neither the Rauchbier aspects are very convincing nor well pronounced.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2006
Orange/brown coloured brew. Bad hoppy aroma. Carbonated flavor, a bit sweet. Not that good.

skortila (4347) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2006
Aroma of caramel malt, a bit roasted and some hops. Clear, amber coloured with an off-white short head. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter, caramel malty, a bit hoppy, some fruity tones. Not great.

caesar (4715) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2006
Clear brown color, short head. Aroma of skunky hops, some caramel, bit malt. Malty and sweet taste, some caramel, sugar. Average dunkel.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2006
An orange beer with a white head. The aroma is very faintly malty. The flavor though is sweet malty with light notes of caramel combined with a hints of alcohol. Boring. I find both the appearance and the alcohol content of this beer closer to that of a bock than a dunkel.

2.8
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a clear amber golden with a small, white head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Rather solid body with distinct notes of roasted malt. Lightly alcoholic finish. Solid if not exactly thrilling German brew. Not really a Dunkel, but not a straight Bock either. 200606

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle (from Fassla): Amber, light carbonation with a white head. Caramel notes. Balanced creamy mouthfeel. Nice nutty malts, spicey hops. Suprisingly good!

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2006 Impressions from the schwemm:
-Frothy foam and clear reddish-brown hues adopt an icea tea look after but a few minutes.
-Like their Pils, this has an aqueous, überclean feel, which is ridiculously drinkable.
-Toffee and roastiness present simple ideas to the flavor spectrum.
-Charred meats subtly suggest depth in the nose.
-Flaky roasted malt bitterness rises in the back.
-The tiny bubbling and lean body are too slippery for my tastes.
-Everything’s so timid and watery, this is ultimately boring and appears to be brewed for the masses.

From the bottle at the brewery.
