crossovert (11398) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
A solid, tasty dunkel that felt like a session-beer for the century. Smooth, malty, but not too sweet.

JorisPPattyn (9505) - Ursel, 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.

MoritzF (9448) - Ottobrunn, 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).

Erzengel (7889) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2014
Süßlich-malziger Geruch. Das Bier ist relativ CO²-arm. Im ersten Moment wässrig entfaltet das Bier zum Hauptteil hin schnell sein malzig-röstmalziges Aroma. Erst wird es malzig-süßlich, schon fast zu süß, aber im Nachgeschmack kommt eine röstmalzig-trockene Note hinzu, die die Süße wieder etwas abmildert. Auf der Zunge bleibt ein trocken-röstmalzige Note zurück, die auch noch ein paar süßliche Einschläge hat.
--> Ein nettes, bayrisches Dunkel, für meinen Geschmack aber einen Tick zu süß.
Test vom 23.9.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,11,11,11,12,12 - 11,55
