COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced from special dark malts, which is why even its foam is dark.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2009
bottle. train rating. moderately creamy texture, overall pretty good for bottled dunkel but of course doesn’t match fresh draft anything. toffee, coffee cake, toast, all there but with an oily butter and metal note. taste some bottle and bottle cap in there.

Rune (7760) - 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.

Quack-Duck (7759) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 20, 2008
draught at Plzensky Dvur Smichov. Dark bwon colour, large and very very creamy head. Sweet and malty, full-bodied, hints of roasted malt and caramel. Slightly hoppy only. Surprisingly good.

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2005
On tap in Olomouc:

The Lure:
Creamy fruit salad sailing on an underlying bock-like malt sweetness. Roasted caramel and ashes complete the semi-complexity.

The Festivities:
Cloying caramel in an almost nitroed, soft and round body. Sweet chocolate melting into a weak roastiness.

Transcendence:
Thick icing on a thin cake is not necessarily as enjoyable as it could be.

Dogbrick (7586) - 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.

shrubber85 (7295) - 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.

DruncanVeasey (7099) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
3.8%??! Tap, all over Prague. Ruby tints and beige lace. Sweet malty chocolatey sessions. Cocoa Pops milk with dunked butter cookie. Simple, sweet, beautiful late morning/lunchtime beer...almost a drainpour by evening...way too sweet to be serious. Dark malts beaten to death with the sugarspoon. Overly saccharine tasty restorative.
