Marheb (4920) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 4, 2014
(Bue sur place): Une onctueuse soupe caramélisée qui libère ses atouts comme la mélasse, cannelle, poivre et tire d’érable. Très pain et très moelleux avec une finale de chlorophylle amère. Plus sucrée que certaine mais avec la finale tranchante pour balancer.

larsga (7297) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2005
Biggish, fine off-white head, dark brown-yellow cloudy body. (Not sure about the colour; it was dark, and the light at the brewery was yellow.) Sweet, toffee-like aroma. Big sweet toffee/licorice taste, with slightly hoppy aftertaste. Complex taste. Aftertaste lingers. A very interesting beer, somewhat heavy by German standards. (0.5l mug on tap at the brewery pub.)

Beershine (5221) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Draft @ brewpub. Milky opaque dark brown with stable head. The aroma is not popping, has some sourness. The palate is soft and has nice low carbonation that makes it very drinkable. The beer is very tasty, as wood fired dark bread crust.

Rated as "Urdunkel" 4.7%
Das Bier ist schön röstmalzig-herb. Die doch erstaunlich stark ausfallende Herbe kommt im Nachgeschmack noch einmal voll zur Geltung und bleibt mit den Röstmalzaromen noch deutlich spürbar lange auf der Zunge. Im Hauptteil kommt auch eine leichte Süße zum Vorschein, die aber nicht wirklich gegen die Herbe ankommt. Ganz zum Ende des Nachgeschmacks wird es dann wieder einen ganz kleinen Tick süßer…

oh6gdx (25388) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2009
Bottled. Deep ambery colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is mildly toasted malts, toffee, some caramel and mild fruity/grassy notes as well. Flavour is sweet malty along with some toasted notes and toffee. Also some nutty notes

BeerViking (4144) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Dried fruit and malt. Dry bitter, deep brown, looks great, full bodied and tasty.

MartinT (9369) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Light diacetyl emboldens this Dunkel’s raisiny malts, as earthy hops and maple toffee continue developing the sugary profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the cloudy brown.
-Drinkability is relatively high despite the sugar content.
-This is not a dialed-in Dunkel at all.
-Minerality is quite high, as it seems to be in most Pottenstein-area brews.

On tap at the brewpub.

50cl bottle. Pours clear orange brown colour with a mid-sized most good lasting beige head. Aroma of toasted dark malt, caramel, some chocolate. Taste of mild roasted malt, floral hops, some chocolate, good one!
