UPDATED: JAN 20, 2003 liked this better the second time. full rye aroma. burnt raisin wine. tasted quite citric and hoppy - probably from buying it close to the source. a little syruppiness in the finish is the only real blemish

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Beautiful, clear brown beer with a reddish hue and a decent head. Lovely roasted malt and a discreet sweetness. Aromatic hoppyness, but well balanced. Reminds me of a Czech Dunkel. 040501

crossovert (7886) - 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.

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.

hayduke (3468) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 4, 2012
I found this 500ml flip-top bottle on the cruise ship Celebrity Infinity on a cruise up the inside passage from Seattle to Alaska. Pours a reddish brown with a robust beige head and good retention and lacing rings. The nose is of sweet caramel malt and some nuts aromas. Medium in body and very smooth on the palate. The flavor brings on some ripe dark fruit and floral hops. . The finish is fruity and lightly bitter. Very tasty and enjoyable.

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.

KyotoLefty (6704) - 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.

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, 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.
