Dogbrick (10001) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 24, 2007
Pours dark brown with a reddish tint around the edges. Medium beige head with fair retention. Stringy lacing. Light roasted malt and bread in the nose, with touches of fruit. Medium (bordering thin at times) smooth body with sweet caramel malt flavor along with dry fruit and rye. The finish is short and fruity with a lingering sweetness. Solidly average Dunkel all around.

500ml Bottle. Cool label. For czech dunkels it is a bit sweeter imo, despite the low abv. The roasty notes are there.

Sammy (9981) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2006
A nice dark, thanks to Radek bought in Poland. Wine brandy colour, bit of lace. Licorice, bit sour, despite malting including caramel. Tad chocolate malt as well. Bit of roast. Not complex, easy drink. A particular dunkel style, OK but not that I seek out.

Rune (9661) - Tromsř, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2006
Nice looking 500ml bottle and label. Creamy, beige head over an appealing deep mahogany and scarlet gown. Dark malty aroma. Watery. Medium bodied. Brittle caramel flavour with grainy notes. More sweetness and some yeastiness in the finish. Becomes far too sweet half way through the glass.

pivnizub (9520) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, creamy tanned head, slowly diminishing to a small stable foamy layer; sweet-malty, toasted-malty nose; sweet-caramelly flavour, light bodied, soft MF; toasted, caramelly finish with a small chocolatey bitterness in the end. Hearty, easily drinkable Dunkel, a bit on the sweet side....

shrubber85 (9454) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Bottle. Suprisingly light malt aroma for a dark beer. Coffee brown color. Light sweet coffee malt flavor with not the strongest of palates. A very enjoyable dunkel.

GT2 (9412) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 12, 2012
500mL thanks to Ruben! Pours high carbonated clear mahogany, soapy, tan to coffee head. Good retention, some rockiness. Stays around for a good while. Nose is metallic with lemon tea and detergent. Taste is very watery, lemon tea, soap, hints of coffee and chocolate.

DSG (9317) - Tel Aviv, - FEB 18, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Re-rate 1/16/08: Bottle. Dark reddish brown with a medium, quickly disappearing, off-white head. Malty aroma with toasted bread and hints of milk chocolate. Sweet toasted malt flavor with caramel, light hoppy bitterness in the finish. A bit watery. OK, but definitely lacks in character and not as good as I remembered it. 6/3/5/2/11=2.7

Bottle. Dark brown with a pretty big beige head. Lightly roasted malt and some caramel in the nose. Flavor is nice sweet malt which finishes with a bit of hop bitterness. A light to medium body. A nice dunkel. 6/4/6/3/13=3.2
