Marko (4855) - 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.

Tap at Le Senk. Aroma rather sweet, lots of caramel, dark caramel. Light Czech hops. Clear medium brown colour. Taste initially strong caramel sweetness, quickly balanced by roasted and DMS-like notes. Overall quite okay tmavy.

Grovlam (4206) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Bottle. Large fin bubbled off-white head that mostly lasted. Dark mahogany color. Good display of lacework. 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.

Frank (3971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Amber brown, small head of mixed bubbles. Nose is raisin sweet malts with a bit of an oxidized nutty element. Sugary sweet and with a dark fruit and caramel character. Too sweet really, it begins to cloy as the glass progresses. Medium bodied but lacking enough carbonation to keep it lively. I am not sure if this beer wants to be a dunkel or what but, whatever it is, it misses the mark.
