Hermod (3001) - Vantaa, FINLAND - DEC 1, 2009
Tap@Vltava, Helsinki. Dark brown with a nice beige head. Weak aroma of chocolate and caramel, flavor is nicely sweet, but not too sweet, mostly caramel and some coffee, very easy to drink. Nice dunkel.

Frank (2727) - 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.

armando629 (2404) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 28, 2009
Draught at the fest called Cseh Csillagok, Millenáris, Budapest. Dark brown body with a small tan head. Toasty caramel and some dried fruits in the nose. Roasted malt and some toasted candy sugar and caramel in the medium bodied beer. Some grassy hop in the finish.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2011
Pours a very nice clear dark brown, sustained head, medium lacing. Somewhat thin-bodied and light. Smell has some woods/forest in addition to the usual caramel and cola. Flavors are moderately sweet (brown sugar) and light-to-moderate bitterness (grass). When cold, this is a very nice example of a mid-sweetness dunkel; not your overdone watery cola nut or waaay to sweet caramel variety. Balanced. Better than the sum of the parts and worth a revisit if better dunkels aren’t around. Bottle, very fresh as always from Piwoteka.

RexTalionis (2333) - FINLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Draught. Pours dark brown in color with a small off-white head. Roasted malty notes, a bit of dark chocolate and notes of coffee beans. Slightly roasted malty notes in taste with some additional notes of roasted coffee beans. Some light bitter hops are present as well. Soft and smooth mouthfeel. Pleasant sweet malty and chocolate sweetness in finish, which makes this highly enjoyable. Roasted malty notes in aftertaste. Great dunkel.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2005
Brown, red appearance. No head. Roasted a bit, quite sticky finish with strong notes of malts and sweetness.
