Many thanks for this bottle to Erzengel. Clear medium brown amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, nutty.

ThirstyBird (1940) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2015
Thanks to erzengel for this bottle! Pours a medium brown color with some haze and a team had. The smell is brown sugar, roasted malt, bread. The taste is brown sugar, roasted malt, bad, fruit ending dry and roasty. Light+ in body with fine carbonation. A nice dunkel.

Erzengel (4730) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2015
1l bottle from the brewery. The beer starts malty-smooth. Not too sweetish, nice bittered. Earthy, hints of roast. Nice bitter-dark malty aftertaste, very dry there. Roasted dark bread, still easy to drink due to remaining hints of sweetness. Round and nice!

MichaelAwesome (4982) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2014
Richtig heftige Geschichte für ein Dunkel. Undefinierbare Säure verbunden mit, ich vermute mal Roggen, einem Getreidehintergrund, der nicht mehr schön ist. Blendet man das aus...nein, man kann nicht. Schäbiges Gebräu.

McTapps (4993) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - FEB 21, 2014
1 l bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low creamy head and medium body. Aroma of acid and malt. Taste of malt, dark roasted barley, nuts, dark cherries, sourness and citrus. Quite malty-sour finish. Light and small body and character are to be found - not really a nice beer and long not as nice as expected after having some great beers of this brewery.

1000ml bottle. Clear, deep reddish glowing, brown colour, with half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Grainy aroma, hints of toasted dark malt, some hay and husk, cocoa. Taste is dry grainy, minimally tart, cautious hints of dark malt, some husk.

ekstedt (5708) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 19, 2012
Bottle (33 cl) from a (non-RB) friend. Hazy mahogny, medium beige head. Nutty and fruity malt aroma with some roasted chocolate notes and herbal hops. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Semi dry, medium bitterness.

oh6gdx (21544) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 28, 2012
Bottled (from Bierzwerg.de, as Thomansen Export Dunkel, best before was about a year ago...). Deep murky brown colour with a mediumsized beige head that leaves nice lace. Aroma is roasted malts, mild coffee, some caramel and mild toffee. Also mildly ashy notes. Flavour is richly roasted old coffee with some caramel, mild toast and toffee as well. Quite a strange "Dunkel" compared to other German dunkels. But yet a rather pleasant brew.

Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas steht ein nussbraunes Dunkles mit feiner hoher Cremekrone. Der Geruch ist sehr intensiv karamellig, Toffee-artig und kaffeebitter. Der Antrunk ist sagenhaft intensiv und wohlschmeckend, und zwar nach Toffee, bitteren Kaffeebohnen, Schokolade und Karamell. Die Mitte wird intensiver kaffeebitter und röstmalziger. Der Abgang ist bittermalzig, röstig. Zum Finish wird’s dann noch mal etwas schokoladiger und leicht süßlicher. Ein absolut geniales Dunkles.
