mjs (6198) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2015
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 15.09.16, 20151030) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had chocolate, roasted malts and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were burnt mals, molasses, sweetness, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A nice sweet schwarzbier. Too burnt for a dunkel.

BeerViking (3915) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Bottle from Lidl, near-black with a tan crema, hints of coffee and red wine on the nose, palate is chocolate, then dry and burnt-bitter with a light umami note and a little coffee in the burnt-bitter finish. Like a cross between Schwarzbier and a dry stout.

Martin243 (1000) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2015
500 ml bottle, cheapie from Lidl, served cold in a tulip. Black with a smooth tan head. Aroma of chocolate and rust. Bitter chocolate flavour, almost to the point of citric, but managing to pull of a creamy mouthfeel at the same time. Very tasty, and extremely good value

In short: tasty dunkel.
Pours quite dark wih nice light tan head. Moderate head retention, some lacing. Roasty, caramel, licorice, dark fruits nose. Medium body, average carbonation, little crispy texture. Taste is some malty, caramel, with nice roasty bitter finish, some dry. Very solid brew, quite enjoyable.

Fľaša 500 ml z pivotéky v Nitre. Tmavá načervenalá priehľadná farba, pena hustá vysoká, jemná aróma praženého karamelu. Rezkosť nižšia, nasládlá chuť, slad, karamel, káva. V zložení cukor aj kyselina askorbová, ale chuťovo celkom ok.
