Borresteijn (5646) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2009
On tap at In de Wildeman. Dark amber brown colour, fluffy off-white head. Aroma of stale hops, wet paper, grain, caramel. Flavour is toasted malts, caramel, some nuttiness, with a sharp grainy bitterness underneath. Light to medium bodied.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle at Ealing beer fest. I was told this was a marzen, but its colour would infact say(as the site does) that this is a dunkel. Very malty, bready, small chocolate note, caramel, earthy german hop. Taste is similar, quite rich and not the easiest to drink, but quite good.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
Bottle. Has that typical German doughy bready malt flavour, some nutty characters. Pretty subtle and, yes, its not the most exciting beer, but it does its job well.

EithCubes (5305) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle from brewery. Dark coppery-brown and clear. Aroma is subdued toasted malt, with some herbal notes. Drinkable enough with soft carbonation. Nice toasted malt qualities with not a lot of sweetness. Just a mellow, dry, drinkable marzen-like brew. Thin but has a nice finish I like.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2012 There is a bottle version up-date at the end of this rating: Drank this in the rear courtyard of the brewery, with a mushroom sauce covered lump of Pork, spuds and a side salad. End of September 2006. Good foaming head in a tall, thick, handled glass with the Fassla logo and Elf on it. The beer a light copper/amber colour, nowhere near some dunkels darkness often seen. No real overpowering aroma, hops and a fruity pong maybe. Tange to the taste, almost sharp and bitter, I liked it. Mouthfeel, good, not to heavy, but you could tell a beer was in your mouth, not some Euro Fizz. Very drinkable, glad I returned, after staying at the brewery some years back. Half-litre bottle: best before 23 Oct 2012, poured on 15 Nov 2012 @ home into a Wolnzacher Brauhaus tall handled tumbler type tankard (so slightly out of date). Darker than I remember the draught version: this was a deep Mahogany browny red colour with a full cream coloured head. Looked good it the glass I’d choosen. The nose was fruity, slightly hoppy and grainy with hints of malty molasses. Taste wise it favoured malts, with fruity notes to the fore, bittering towards the end of each sip. You don’t see beers from this brewery very often in the UK, so when I saw this I had to buy it and re-live the last visit I had to Bamberg, some 6 years ago.

thebeertourist (5155) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle at the brewery. Clear copper-coloured with a small white head. Neutral malts aroma. sweet malty flavours, balanced by grassy hoppiness. A bit boring, actually.

DutchDrebus (5109) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013
50cl from bottle @ Moe’s Sportsbar, Bamberg. Copper colour with a decent sized off-white head. Smells hops, sweet, raisins, herbs. Tastes malty mostly.. Slightly hayish. Thin body, nice carbo.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2003
This is a very nice beer. Surprisingly full flavoured for being a bottom fermented brew. It has lots of everything.
