A solid, tasty dunkel that felt like a session-beer for the century. Smooth, malty, but not too sweet.

Quack-Duck (8341) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2012

JorisPPattyn (8202) - 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.

jonas (5986) - 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.

Tap at Starosloviensky pivovar. Dark brown color with thick light beige head. Roasted malt, fruity syrup in aroma. Taste, sweet malt, caramel roasted notes, hints of coffee.
