MoritzF (8444) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2008
(bottle) Clear, dark chestnut colour with a medium sized off-white foamy head. Light-sweet roast-malty aroma with caramel and notes of chocolate. Moderately bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a medium carbonation. Dry toast-malty taste with caramel flavours; bitter and minimal sweet toasty finish. A solid Dunkel (26.08.08).

Theydon_Bois (8076) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Tap at the Brauhaus - 29/04/12. Clear mid chestnut brown with a small to medium off-white froth atop the glass. Malty nose with a hint of bitter dark chocolate and nuts. Bitter dry taste with malts coming through allied to caramel and some sugar. Light to medium body with soft carbonation.

JorisPPattyn (7875) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 5, 2007
Huge fine & dense cream-yellow head over red-shot amber-brown beer. Caramel, dark malts and a bit vinous nose (which is rare in German beers). Also an aroma as from ivy leaves. Dry, leafy taste, old but wet brown bread, and a pinch of caramel at the end. Surprisingly little sweetness. Long dry, woody finish. Dry but medium bodied at least. No new aftertaste, finish goes on long enough. Quite good Dunkel. Products from this brewery seem to vary quite a lot, in my (limited) experience.

bottle from Bierzwerg. Brown colour, mid-sized off-white to beige head. Malty, hints of caramel, slightly hoppy. Solid Dunkel without any special character.

crossovert (7200) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
A solid, tasty dunkel that felt like a session-beer for the century. Smooth, malty, but not too sweet.

Beerhunter111 (7081) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, Karamell, minimal würzig. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, würzig, gering schokoladig.

jonas (5614) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2004 Re-rate: Malty roasted and nutty nose. Red-brown, relatively low carbonation, low creamy head. Dark fruity malt and chocolate base, hoppy aftertaste - surprisingly it is a bit like a big stout. Medium body, smooth fine carbonated mouthfeel.

EithCubes (4811) - New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2012 Bottle by 08.02.13. Light chocolate and roast in the dusty nose. Chestnut with red highlights and a sudsy tan head. Thin, watery body with a medium acidic tang along with the roast and mocha, faint nuts under the vomit and red berry, sharp and not too enjoyable. [2.2][April 12, 2012]

Tap in Freising at Huber. A beautiful ruby body that darkens to black bu the top and then becomes a rocky tan head. Beautiful candy-caramel nose with lots of fruit. Taste moderately dry (well, at least not too sweet) with light caramel and roast, some mocha and brown sugar, an that fruit. Pretty clovey, spritz of citrus, light-medium body, classic and süffig. [3.6][July 24, 2012] What a difference!
