MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2013
Bottle, thnx to MisoW. Pours a dark brown beer with a medium sized, light tanned head on top. Aroma is nutty, yeasty, malty with a slight background of caramel. Flavor is medium bitter with touches of molasses and some chocolate. Very well carbonated, giving it a fizzy, thin mouthfeel. Short finish, easy drinkable, decent beer.

ThirstyBird (1454) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
Thanks to MisoW for this beer! Pours very dark brown with a tan head. Smell is roasted malt, chocolate, a touch of coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate ending dry and a tough bitter. Light in body and nicely carbonated. A nice Dunkel.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2013
Thanks to MisoW for the bottle. Shared with ThirstyBird. Neutral to malty nose. The beer starts quite dry, malty, a bit roasted. The body is full, chocolate, Espresso. Very nice. Slightly bitter. The aftertaste is long, not too thick, very nice roasted flavours, a bit bitter and nicely dry in the end. --> Great beer! 13/12/14/14

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 22, 2013
0.33l bottle from trade with Misow. Yeah, looks quite nice this, really deep deep dark, almost black in the glass and it has a medium sized fading grey beige head that’s leaving some nice lacings. The nose is at first quite wort-burnt infused, a bit like a German kraft maltz but after a while it opens more up with subtle nuances of cold coffee, thin chocolate, dark malts and a little bit of something slightly spicy. Hard to identify, but it smells quite nice. A really nice flavor on this! It’s light burned around the edges, no, a more than a little - quite burned without being to much. Almost like the burned charred part in a good barbecued beef. It’s not a heavy weight er on the mouthfeel but that would not suit this beer either and the carbo level is nice gentle and prickling. A little bit of cold coffee and even hints of chocolate paper. Did not expect all that to be honest, but this was actually quite good. Would not mind drinking this again! 10.09.2013

Geiserich (3265) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - OCT 6, 2013
Bottle, thanx to Cuso! Aroma of malts, roasted malt, dark cholocate and a hint of coffee. Very dark brown color and a brownish, creamy head. Flavor is malty, roasty with toffee and dark chocolate notes. Also some black coffee notes. Roasty, light bitter and dry finish. Good one but more a Schwarzbier then a Dunkel in my opinion.

Douberd (1999) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle, 330 ml, at home. Many thanks to MisoW! Poured into a lager glass, ABV 5.5% Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer, with something more than two fingers of light beige head. Foam is creamy and thick, with very good retention and after it finally collapses to one third of its size, it leaves medium thick lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts but mainly chocolate, lots and lots of it, sweet and milky. Taste begins with lots of coffee and a light bitterness, continues with milky sweet chocolate and returns back to coffee, which lingers for quite long on the aftertaste too, together with its bitterness. Very nice! Medium thin body, low carbonation, maybe too low actually, it could use a bit more. Overall a really nice beer, maybe it’s because I haven’t had a black lager in a while, but whichever the case I enjoyed this very much.

McTapps (3556) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle from Cuso - thank you my friend! Pours out in a unclear dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Nose of malt and leaves. Taste of light leather, light malt, mild bittersweet chocolate, woods and light roast. Easy to drink, nice and solid Dunkles.
