chriso (7512) - 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.

Svesse (7262) - 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.

allmyvinyl (7165) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2014
500ml bottle from premium Czech beers online. Pours clear brown, thin off-white head. Aromas are metallic and toffee, light herbal hops. Taste is more of the same. Clean finish.

larsga (6929) - 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.)

gunnar (6920) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2010
0,5 l bottle. Poursd deep brown with a small tan head. Aroma is weak roasted malts, light chocolate. Full bodied, very good for this low abv beer. Taste is full of light roasted malts, maybe a touch on the sweet side, but not too much. Here is caramel mixed with chocolate, even some noticeable liquorice, nice Czech dunkel.

Radek Kliber (6825) - 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.

Cuso (6621) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 30, 2015
Tap at Le Senk. Chestnut brown color with thick beige head. Caramel, roasted malt yeast in aroma. Sweet caramel malt in taste with plums, notes of coffee. Standard tmavy, not my style.

PorterPounder (6539) - 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.

Bottle from Mahlers Vinhandel, Frederikshavn. Nutty, sweet, some grain, some roasted malt, a hint of soot. A bit too thin and bland.
