larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2009
Medium fine beige-brownish lasting head. Lovely reddish-brown body. Light fruity aroma; can’t really make anything much out. Dry (with sweetish notes) roasty dried fruit and raisins taste with caramelly notes. Excellent harmony and balance. Lovely vividness and distinctness of taste. Dry spicy roasty earthy licorice aftertaste lingers. Light acidity can be picked up. Really exceptionally good for the style. (0.3l draft, U Ferdinanda, Prague.)

Svesse (5845) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2008
(Draught at Ferdinanda, Prague, 19 July 2008) Dark brown colour with ruby notes and a brief, beige head. Malty nose with prunes, cold coffee and spicy hints. Malty taste with cola, sweet coffee, brown sugar and a slightly bittersweet finish. Rather sweet but still nice.

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 11, 2008
Bottle from Mahlers Vinhandel, Frederikshavn. Nutty, sweet, some grain, some roasted malt, a hint of soot. A bit too thin and bland.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This poured a reddish brown with medium carbonation and a slender tan head. The aroma is like that of wort in a brewhouse. The flavor is caramel malt with an odd mineral water kind of a finish that left a film on my tongue. My dunkel experiences are rarely good...

larsniclas (5350) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2003
A very longlasting sweet aroma. Of course extremely goodlooking beer with an excellent head.

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 19, 2012
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark brown colour with a firm, creamy white head. Aroma of toasted malts, ash and bread. Flavour of sweet toasted malts, nuts, bread, sweet raisins and some toffee. Medium bodied, smooth mouthfeel and a smooth, dry, sweet finish. Very well balanced.

Beershine (5195) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft @ Ferdinanda. Thick dark brown with thick thick tan head. Aroma is surprisingly spicy and enticing. The malts smell really dry and like there is caraway here. Soft palate but high carbonation. Slight sourness does not detract but would prefer it not to be there. But overall it’s a nice balanced brew. I especially appreciate how it’s spicy and dark and not sweet.

PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2005 Rerate Thinnish head, flavor not as chocolatey this time around, aroma a bit too sweet; still a decent Dunkel though. Original 3.6 Picked up at Habersham Beverage Warehouse in Savannah, Ga. Pleasant chestnut brown pour with a pillowy off white head and good sticky lacing. Aroma has some sweet nutty accents with a back end of wort. Flavor has some of the same accents with a noticeable chocolatey bent. Also detect a wee bit of coffee. One of the more flavorful dunkels that I have come across. Mouthfeel, while a bit thin is appopriate for the style. A definite winner.
