crossovert (7581) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
A solid, tasty dunkel that felt like a session-beer for the century. Smooth, malty, but not too sweet.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 9, 2010
Dark coppery colored with little and thick brown head. Nutty and roasted aroma with sweet aroma, nice aroma indeed. Medium bodied, smooth palate. Flavor is also nice with nuts dominating, aftertaste lasts with decent hops, grains and nuts. Excellent dunkel.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Bottle. Dark amber color with an ivory head. Hot, nutty malt aroma. Fruity malt flavor that seems somewhat light for a dunkel. Nice.

jfb (3968) - Freising, GERMANY - DEC 7, 2009
(bottle) pours a clear ruby-brown colour with a dark tanned head. aroma of dark fruits, roasted malts, light caramel and milk chocolate, with a hint of coffee. flavour is grainy malts with more chocolate, dark fruit and a long, smooth roasted-bitter finish. medium body with soft carbonation. very tasty!

Erzengel (2754) - 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.

jonas (5698) - 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.

StueyD (1177) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2007
A cola brown coloured beer with orange-red flashes and a thickish white head. A strong malty nose, nutty, coffee and chocolate. The taste is bitter, somewhat sour, malty, again, bitter dark chocolate and coffeeflavours, the sourness gives the taste a burnt orange like flavour (Gasthof Neuwirt, Halbergmoos, Germany).

Grapes figs Wood. Berries kinda all over the place in a good way. Different in all the right ways. Not sure how to nail this down ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JorisPPattyn (7976) - 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.

pivnizub (8927) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle (Merci, Jonas !) Deep chestnut-amber coloured, mid-sized slightly lacing stable tanned head; dryish caramelly-toasty nose with a nutty touch; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied, soft MF; a chocolatey touch shows up in the malty-caramelly finish. Very good Dunkles.........
