BeerViking (2692) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2013

MichaelAwesome (4587) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 14, 2013
Ein im Grunde übliches Dunkel, das unauffällig, leicht süffig und süßlich daherkommt. Gute Wertarbeit, welche jedoch keine Rakete ist.

McTapps (4589) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 14, 2013
Deep dark brown colour with steady head and medium to smooth body. Nose of malt. Taste of drak roasted nuts, rosmary, rich malt, mild hops, dark bread and caramel. Very easy and nice to drink. Good and solid Dunkel.

Shaney (2427) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - APR 9, 2013
Fast schwarz mit leichtbräunlicher Schaumbildung präsentiert sich dieses sehr dunkle Dunkel, perfekt! Verhaltene Aromen nach dunklem Malz, auch leicht röstig. Kakao-, Kaffee- und Röstmalznoten im Geschmack, aber sehr harmonisch und überhaupt nicht sperrig. Der Abgang hält auch lange an. Sehr gelungenes Dunkel!

Grima (2124) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Tiefes dunkelbraun, fast schon schwarz, glänzt es im Glas. Es schäumt sehr gut auf und der cremefarbene, feinporige Schaum steht gut und lange im Glas. Beim Geruchstest kommen ausschließlich Süßmalzaromen und leichte Röst-Aromen durch. Startet mit einer guten Mischung aus röstigem und süßlichem Aroma, im Nachgeschmack wird’s leicht bitter und kaffeartig.
