fonefan (38879) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007
Draught @ brewery tap, Aufseß-Heckenhof, Oberfranken/Bayern, Germany. Clear medium brown color with a average, creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, nutty, moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet, light light acidic and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Very nice and refreshing. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. ;o)) (181007)

Bottled. Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige fluffy head. Aroma is sweet malts, some nuts, earth and mild notes of grass. Flavour is grainy, rubbery and slightly sweet malty. Also some caramel. To be re-rated on occasion.

MiP (14454) - 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 (12665) - 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

bierkoning (11147) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2011
Tap @ Kathi Heckenhof. brown color, hazy. Roast and some caramel in the malty, bready flavor. Maybe a bit thin. Long roasty earthy hopbitter finish. Earthy hoparoma. A very rural but hugely drinkable dunkel.

Benzai (10175) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear amber to red color, average sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is malts, slightly earthy. Taste malts, lightly sweet, a bit dusty. Soft mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Meh.

pivnizub (9308) - 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.............

MoritzF (8726) - GERMANY - FEB 13, 2008
(100cl bottle, purchased at the brewery) Clear, dark brown colour with a solid beige foamy head. Sweet and quite rich toast-malty aroma with light notes of caramel, nettle-like spices, barnyard and whiffs of herbal hops. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied, soft and pleasant carbonation. Dark malt-character, slightly toasted with notes of (milk) chocolate; quite dry, sweet and slightly bitter, lasting malty finish with a chocolatey toasty aftertaste. Very good dark Lager (13.02.08).

3fourths (8602) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2015 November 2013: Unfiltered dark brown. Amazingly strong yogurt aroma with notes of cola and autolyzed yeast. Sour, sweet, thin, acidic, weak. A dumper if there ever was one. 1.7

March 2015: Lightly hazed brown with a lasting light tan head. Nutty amaretto and chestnut and almond pastry aroma. Medium body, light sweetness, malty and oily with some coarseness, perhaps not lagered enough. Carbonation is creamy but malt is a bit rough. Decent minerality. Licorice and anise herbalness with woody touches. Much cleaner than in 2013, no unpleasant yogurt character. 3.3

MartinT (8550) - 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.
