MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, 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).

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2005
Medium offwhite head of large bubbles, clear dark red body. Smoky, meaty aroma, not too strong. Taste is deep, but not really strong. I’d be hard-pressed to describe it, but the aftertaste is quite bitter. Overall quite hoppy. A very good example of the Franconian dark lager. (0.5l mug on tap at the brewery outdoor serving.)

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.

fonefan (36036) - 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)

pivnizub (9036) - 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.............

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.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 19, 2005
Couleur noire foncée, mousse beige pale. Arômes de malt hautement torréfiés apportant un côté de viande fumée. Saveurs de caramel, de mélasse et de malt grillé se terminant sur une touche de fumée. Une touche de houblon apporte une fraîcheur de type menthol. Étalement court, les arômes laissaient entrevoir un breuvage plus complexe. Corps d’épaisseur semi mince, faible carbonatation. Bouteille, lanbierparadies, voyage Europe 2005

bierkoning (10563) - 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.
