JK (4350) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Black with a red tint. Thick khaki colored head that fades slowly. Some lacing, and a lasting layer of foam. It looks wonderful. Malt and caramel aroma. Flavor is heavy roasted malt and smoke with caramel as well. Full bodied and easy to drink. Outstanding dunkel, served on draught at Ferdinanda in Prague.

Aroma of mild sweet chocolate, roasted malt, hint of coffee and underlying grassy bitter notes. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated sweet flavor with some counter bitterness. Roasted bitter hoppy finish.

Marko (3878) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 29, 2009
Bottle probably from the Albert hypermarket in Chodov, Prague, shared with heavy
Poured a dark red body going black with a beige head that went away at a medium pace. Dry malty nose reminiscent of milk caramel, slightly roasty and sweet. Light roasty taste with notes of caramel, dry, not all that sweet for a Czech dunkel... maybe more coffeeish than chocolatey, but both descriptors are a bit stretched. Even some extremely weak notes of herbal hop floated in for a second once. It’s an ok dark beer that’s more a schwarzbier than a dunkel in my book but still not enough to care about it. All in all, a solid enough choice in a Czech supermarket.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near-brown red-hued body with a medium light beige foamy short-lived head. Nose is light roasty caramel tones with hints of cereals and raisins. Taste is straight malty tones with hints of caramel. A bit watery mouthfeel. Too simple to convince.

(bottle) pours a dark ruby-brown colour with a frothy tan head. faint aroma of toasted malts with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. flavour is the same, though more powerful, the roasted malts being especially dominant. medium body and carbonation with a nice roasted-bitter finish.
