pivnizub (9199) - Bochum, Porúří, - OCT 5, 2012
Bottle: Amber coloured, clear,smaller - slowly collapsing - white head, light to moderate grassy-hoppy nose with very faint traces of dark malt or caramel; moderate dryish bitter - sweet flavour, light bodied and a bit fizzy; short and dry bitter-grassy finish. This is not a real Dunkel, but a fake! Tastes suspiciously like a coloured Krombacher Pils…

King_Alex_II (522) - SWITZERLAND - APR 18, 2015
The color is clear dark wood brown with a whitish foam head. The smell is very thin. The taste is watery but round with a dryer aftertaste. Lightly roasted nut aromas with little else. It’s an okay beer, but not something you have looked for.

jfb (4559) - Freising, GERMANY - MAR 21, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2015 (bottle) clear copper-amber colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of heavy earth and grass, with a touch of chestnut honey, liquorice and some roasted malts. flavour is mostly gently roasted malts, sugar icing and yeast, again quite earthy, with some quite noticeable alcohol and a hint of popcorn in the finish. light- to medium-bodied with average carbonation.

MrHangover (3139) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is malty, nutty and quite faint and almost watery. Flavors are thin, medium bitter, light carbonation over a malty base. Rather bland and uninteresting, yet good drinkablitly. Short, light bitter aftertaste.. Decent.

Moolesen (319) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Brown with a small off white head, which quickly dissappeared. Metal and some sweet malty aroma, quite weak. No strong taste. What is present is malt and also surprisingly very obvious hops which gives a certain bitterness. It’s though not in harmony with the rest, but assures that it not gets just another sweet dunkel.

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells cheaply of disease, cinnamon and fallen leaves. Tastes sweetly and cheap - malty with hints of cinnamon and turkmeric, a bit of hops in the aftertaste. Probably the worst dark lager I have had.

Dark amber coloured, with malty baked bread aromas. Light to medium bodied with slight sweetness. Not fantastic, but not terrible.
