MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This rustic Dunkel’s striking earthy, herbal hop bitterness follows pumpernickel bread impressions and mild blueberry esters for a pint which is as memorable as it is quaffable.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the blackened brown.
-This tastes like an ancestor to today’s Black IPAs...
-The mouthfeel is quite dry, which makes the hop bitterness feel more potent.
-Malts offer mild roasted and smoked flavors too.

On tap at the brewpub.

MiP (13788) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown colour. Good stable creamy tan head. The flavour is slightly bready in the good way, resembles rye, but probably is not. OK mouthfeel, slightly creamy.

Koelschtrinker (11042) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Aromatisch malziger Antrunk, würzige und herbe Noten sind erst später vorhanden. Hier spielen angenehme aber nicht wirklich starke ausbalancierte Noten eine Rolle, die für einen Aürzschub sorgen, der im Abgang seinen Höhepunkt erreicht. Im Abgang etwas bitter und, überraschend und erfreulich, etwas fruchtig. 12/10/9/10//9

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 6, 2010
1L sving-top bottle. Big platina blond head with excellent lacing. Clear mahogny colored body. Dry nutty, faint caramelly malt aroma. Notes of dusty, grassy and papery hops. Much of the same flavorwise; Dry nutty malts and dusty hops. Also an vinous berry-ish fruitiness. Light to medium full. powdery, almost chalky in th mouth. Dry fruity finish. Probably a light oxidation here, still a decent and drinkable dunkel.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 10, 2008
1.0 l bottle. Reddish brown color with small head. Sweetish, nutty, leathery and somewhat dull aroma. Dry nutty flavor with some weird plastic off flavor. This bottle was picked week ago from the brewery but seems to be insipid, I hope to rerate this in future.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2008
A Mes rate: Gravity serving at Zeitgeist.
Mid brown with a slight beige head. Sweet German malt aroma with a lot of caramel and toffee. Slight tobacco and wheat with a tiny lick of hops. Flavour is very wheaty with some tobacco again. Slight roasty notes, lovely malt and an excellent balancing bitterness in the finish. Smooth and drinkable.

pivnizub (9005) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle (10dl) Amber coloured, bigger, quite persistent, almost creamy off-white head; moderate sweet dark-malty nose with a shy, but distinctive hoppy background and a touch of barnyard; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, soft MF, quite "full" bodied for a beer of 4.8%; sweet-malty and bitter finish. A well crafted and well rounded franconian brew.............
