Grima (2098) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas steht ein leuchtend dunkelbraunes, rötliches Bier mit grober Krone, die innerhalb weniger Sekunden verschwindet. Der Geruch ist dominant röstmalzig und stark brotig. Der Antrunk erfolgt sehr brotig, wirklich SEHR brotig, aber das ist positiv zu werten, wenn es ist wirklich sehr bekömmlich. Zudem spielt eine angenehme Röst-bittere mit. Der Abgang ist süßlich, karamellig, und wieder kommt der brotige Ton gut durch. Insgesamt sehr rezent.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2012
Dark brown-red colored with big light brown head. Nice chocolaty, little bit of roasted aroma with dry, slightly grassy and nutty aroma, good one. Medium bodied, smooth palate. Flavor is also nicely roasted and smooth with some berries, dark chocolate and some nuts. I like this.

EithCubes (4900) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Swing-top by 04.08.12. Nose is lightly dusty, earthy, with caramel and light chocolate, malt. A very pretty, shady ruby-amber with snail-slow carbonation and rocky tiny-bubbled tan head. Nutty taste, low roast with (slight) milky chocolate, malty but actually relatively dry for a Dunkel. Light body, coating. Relaxing.

Hermod (3170) - Vantaa, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2011
50cl bottle with flip-top. Poured colabrown color with a huge, frothy, lasting beige head. Aroma is nice, caramel, slightly roasted and bready. Medium bodied, flavor is caramel and bread, slightly sweet. Long finish. Very nice dunkel, high drinkability.

BeerViking (2472) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2011
500ml flip-top bought in Germany. Pours a deep reddish brown with a big beige head, aromas of sweet malt and caramel, and a hint of bread dough. More caramel on the palate but with a nice balancing peppery hoppy bite and a drying malty finish. A light tang of dark fruit and dry cocoa in the tail. Very nice.

Kristall-König (2244) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 2, 2011
Im Geruch röstig-malzig mit schokoladigen Beimengungen. Antrunk süßlich und ein wenig dünne. Die Mitte kompensiert dies aber mühelos durch eine ordentliche Herbe und einen schokoladigen Unterton. Herb und bitterschokoladig im Schluß. Ein ziemlich gutes Bier.Test vom 5.6.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

crossovert (7392) - Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2011
500ml Bügelflasche. Mindestens haltbar bis: 11.12.11. I get wet thinking of unfiltered dunkels, you wonder why there aren’t more out there. It pours a nice brownish color with a foamy ta head that recedes with some nice lacing. The smell is very nice, with some dark malts, bread, and a nice hop touch. The flavor is pretty good. It is a raostier example. Reminds me of a porter. It is sweet but roasty with some subtle malt and fruit flavors.

Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 16, 2011
Leicht herber Malzantrunk, etwas süß. Durch diese leicht süße Komponente ist das Bier sehr süffig, es wird so auch über den im Vergleich zum Antrunk milden Abgang hinweggetäuscht. Dies fällt dann im Abgang auf, in dem das Malz der prägnante Ton ist. Wie im Antrunk erscheint er auch hier leicht herb. Sobald dieser Ton milder wird, startet das Malz einen Alleingang, das Bier wird deutlich würziger, das Malz etwas röstig. Zudem ist das Bier hier erneut süß, was zur Süffigkeit beiträgt. Test vom 13.5.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,10,11,12,8,11 - 10,85

KyotoLefty (6455) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 2, 2010
Bottled. Cloudy dark brown color. Rounded, rich caramel aroma with earth, dark chocolate, plums. Rich malt flavor, lots of caramel and some chocolate. Dry, earthy, a bit dirty. Great balance with a touch of raisins and dried figs. Good dunkel—not too sweet, though maybe a bit thin bodied.
