As with all Leinieís beers Iíve tried, this seems to be on the watery side. What substance is there is good, but there is so little of it. Iím not really sure how Iíd categorize this, but it doesnít seem much like a dunkel at all. Reminds me quite a bit of Xingu, actually. Smells and tastes coffeeish, with little hops, and a spare finish. Pretty weak, but also pretty cheap.

A good way to get into drinking darker beers without hitting a bitter wall. Best on tap but drinkable when bottled. Isnít really so much a dunkel as it is a dark lager. A nice beer to have around in quantity during the Winter. Have to agree with the other comments -- itís not very creamy, but its otherwise quite good.

Good Dark beer, taste is suprising for a dark. With itís color I expected a much heartier taste. Overall this is a good beer, maybe something to start a new comer to dark beers.

Good dark for beginners. Remember, itís a lager, not a stout -- just because itís dark, donít expect the heavy, thick taste that many assume all dark beers have. Good colour, flavour strong but less than some darks, fine aftertaste. I havenít yet found Leinenkugelís Doppelbock, but this will do from them until then.

A major let down from Leinenkugelís. Stay away from this and their Berry Weiss.

One of the best tasting dark lagers available. Actually has flavor to match the name unlike Heineís or Beckís. Creamy mocha flavoring in a smooth drinking beer.

i imagine this is what "Buzz Beer" from the Drew Carey Show tasted like.

pours dark brown but not opague. has a small beige head that disipates. flavor is smooth a bit watery even for a dunkel. still for the money this is a pretty good beer
