Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2012
Single bottle purchased from an Edeka Grocery Store in Winterberg, Germany on 01/09/2011. Colour: Medium dark brown, high brown head that quickly faded. Nose: Chocolate mousse malt, hazelnuts and pecans, shades of rainforest coffee. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Shades of roated nuts, a smattering of egg, slight metallic tingle, finish become burnt embers. Better aroma than taste.

JorisPPattyn (9134) - Ursel, BELGIUM - NOV 6, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2005 Greige, creamy head over well carbonated black beer, foxy shine. Blackcurrant, black chocolate, brown sugar on bread, all fading aroma’s. Dark malts, melanoidine-rich. Lots of restsweetness but balanced by dry-bitterish flavours: woody, slightly hoppy, tannine-like. Whiffs of coffee and cigarette ashes. Dry and sweet at the same time, light to medium body. Very good balance for this Dunkel. Plain but forthright, "quaffable". Kudo’s to these people.

MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2006
(swing top bottle) Hazy dark brown colour with a ruby shine and a big tanned foamy head with slow lace. Dark malty toasty aroma with caramel and chocolate. Toasted malty taste with caramel, medium body, smooth carbonation and mouthfeel; dry and moderately bitter toasty and light hoppy finish with liquorice and milk coffee. Good Dunkel.

YogiBeera (2558) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 1, 2006
Thanks a lot MoritzF! Nice dark brown color with a huge frothy tan head. Caramel and toasted malt nose. Same applies to the taste - the toasted malt kicks in first but it has a weak finish. Light body.

Erzengel (7274) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 17, 2014
* Old rating, 0,5l, best before 10.02.06. Mild-malziger Antrunk. Nicht zu tief. Trocken-malzige Töne im Hauptteil, frisch, süffig, aber im Nachgeschmack nur leicht röstmalzig, dafür malzig-trocken mit angenehmer Herbe.

Benzai (12365) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2012
50cl bottle @ home, shared with Countbeer, Fonefan and Ove. Brown-red color with a nice deep dark red glow coming through, decent sized off-white to beige head. Smell malts, a little sweet and a slight weird scent. Tastes nicely balanced, malts, lightly sweetish, hints of caramel. Quite decent. Lightly sticky texture. Low carbo, low body.
