3fourths (8602) - 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.

Quack-Duck (8596) - 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.

rosenbergh (8564) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 30, 2010
500 ml can. Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with average quickly disappearing tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, dry hoppiness and notes of nuts, chocolate and coffee. Roasted malt, hoppy dryness and chocolate sweetness and nuts in flavour. Quite fizzy. Good Czech Dunkel.

MartinT (8550) - 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.

DSG (8448) - 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

deyholla (8124) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Bottle. Poured brown with a ivory head that laced a bit. Aroma was sweet with notes of caramel malts. Flavor was more grainy, but the caramel malts were still present. The body was a bit light.

DuffMan (7999) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2005
Fantastic! Pours a rich red copper with a medium tan head with good lace. Aromas of toffee, sweet spice, dates. Toasted malt palate with cooked fruit in the finish (apples and raisins).

Skinnyviking (7786) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 26, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy but lasting light brown head. Very dark clear red brown body. Roasted barley malt aroma with a bit of caramel and notes of butter. Very sweet and mild roasted barley malt flavor with caramel. Low carbonation and a short sweet aftertaste.

DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, 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.
