Beershine (5201) - 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.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004
Even though I have been to the city of Benesov two times, this is my first beer from this brewery. Very dark red colour with creamy off-white head. Aroma is maltet with some roasted malts and hints of coffee. First flavors are mostly the roasted malts, but then there is also some sweetness. Palate is nice and solid, and the beers last impression is a dry bitterness.

gunnar (5099) - 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.

heemer77 (5096) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Pours a dark ruby color with a thin off white head. The aroma is hay and some bananas with nutmeg. The taste is a slightly sweet apricot with some grass and some light smoke. Also a little bit of roasted peanuts.The finish is a little dry for me. A fairly nice dunkel. Best by March 29, 2005.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Chestnut to copper color with a small layer of tiny tan bubbles. Great color just not much head out of this bottle. Mild sweetened nut and hint of roasted malt in the aroma. Light mocha flavors with a touch of hops late in the quaff. A very unassuming and drinkable dunkle. I certainly could sit and drink this all evening. Very smooth on the palate.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 5, 2011
Draught at Uusi Apteekki, Turku. Dark reddish brown color. The aromas of dark bread, caramel and toffee. In the flavor dark bread and toffee is on the top with some caramelly background notes. Slightly sweet but not overly so. Quite nice breakfast beer.

Sigmund (4933) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2005
Draught at Christian Firtal, Odense. Dark ruby colour when held to the light. A bit fizzy. Moderate aroma of caramel malts. Flavour is moderately sweet with caramel and chocolate notes. Hints of blackcurrants. Some hops in the finish, more than in many other dunkels.

jgb9348 (4626) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2009
Dark brown coloured body with a tan head and a bunch of bubbles. Bright aroma of roasted malt, pit fruits and a bit of earthiness. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour complete with coffee and nuts, tucked in with sugars and some mild hops. Aftertastes nice and complex - definitely a good beer. Overall, worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this pint on draught at Ferdinanda in Praha, Ceska Republica in March 2008.
