ChainGangGuy (4803) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 8, 2012
500ml bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a chestnut brown body with some amberish tones present.

Smell: A smell of toasted hearty dark bread, incredibly faint roast flecks, apple skin, and old, dried herbs.

Taste: Soundly toasty malts, a little hint of dark caramel, though not particularly sweet hiding what seems to be some grainy pils underneath. Even a touch of roast in there. Faint, faint touch of apple skin. Dried herbal tone from the hops with enough bitterness to balance things out.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Reasonably smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: A decent dark lager.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2012
The aroma is slightly toasted with paper, mixed grain, and chocolate. The appearance is light brown with a small head. The taste is like the aroma with a mineral quality. The palate is a bit thin. Overall very weak and disappointing.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - DEC 17, 2012
.5 liter swing-top bottle. BB: 25.09.13. Brown color, brown foam, great lacing. Aroma of toasted brown grains. Fresh aroma, smells like a fresh, hearty Dunkel. Light taste, toasted grains, grassy hops. Some flavors of chocolate, nice roast. Clean finish, hearty malt flavors. A suberb Dunkel! (3553)

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy dark brown color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is quite malty with some caramel coming through in there. Taste is much the same and is a little bit sweet.

BeerViking (4141) - 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.

Bottled: Smoky, light sweet aroma. Chestnut brown, color, foamy, brownish head. Fresh, malty flavor, roasty and light fruity (cherries). Notes of toffee and smoked wood. Dry finish.

stevoj (3932) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Appearance is lacking on this, as it poured with foamy head that faded very fast. Color is of murky cola. Aroma is malt, nuts, brown sugar. Taste is sweet, malt, nuts. Overall mouthfeel seems watery and sweetness is the most notable lingering flavor

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.
