pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 10, 2006
Bottled (@ PivniGaleriePraha): Ruby-amber coloured, medium-sized fluffy tanned head, lacing and slowly collapsing; sweet dark-malty, caramelly nose with a distinctive touch of toasted malt; sweet (malty) flavour, surprisingly full bodied, velvet MF; longer sweet-caramelly finish with a delicate bitterness in the very end. A bit on the sweet side, but all in all a very pleasant and decent Dunkles !

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 8, 2005
On tap in Praha:

The Lure:
Creamy foam on mahogany-brown. Roasted berries and earthy wilderness project oncoming tartness. Dry red wine grapes are perceived.

The Festivities:
A cushion-y malt core is topped by sweet cherries, grapes and various berries. Earthy humidity meets light sourness, which gets uncomfortable after a while.

Sitting on forest soil is refreshing.

chriso (7352) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2005
Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense, August 2005. Quite deep red colour. Sweetish malt character with some chocolate, plus something fruity and slightly sour - reminded me of tamarind. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Hints of bitterness in the finish. Pretty decent.

Skinnyviking (7062) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2006
Bottle. Light brown creamy high and lasting head. Clear but very dark red brown body. Sweet and fruity aroma of burned malt and caramel. Very sweet flavor indeed, no bitterness, little carbonation, as indicated by the aroma the flavor is of burned malt with sugar and caramel. Long and pleasant aftertaste.

Radek Kliber (6457) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 14, 2003
On tap. If Dunkel could look better than this one how would it look? Sweet, deep brownish color. Creamy thick crown. Aroma - this is the other side of medal. Slightly organic, not the freshest, slightly sulphuric. Flavours were flat and boring, sweet.
