oh6gdx (25331) - 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.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2011
33cl bottle pours a deep clear copper with gold edges and off white head. The aroma is full with Christmas fruit cake, black licorice and honey laced dark roasted coffee. The taste has the honey or molasses sweetened dark roasted coffee mingling with some spicy black licorice and dark roasted malts. To midway a fairly assertive spicy hop component joins in and helps take this to the finish.

Kristall-König (2726) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Geruch süßlich-malzig, Kaffee. Etwas flüchtiger Antrunk, dann schnell malziger werdend und hopfenaromatisch untermalt. Malziger Ausklang. Gut solide. Test vom 14.4.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Bottled 0,33 ltr "Thomhansen Export Dunkel" (BZ, BB 04/2011)
Dark chestnut brown color, steady small beige head, some lace. Sticky coffeeish aroma, roasted coffee beans. Soft palate. Coffeish and milky flavor with some toffee and peanut butter. Harsh, coffeish-bitter finish. Lingering dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Very unconventional German dunkel.

yngwie (16504) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle, shared by Papsoe. It pours a clear, reddish golden body under a finger-thick, beige head. Toffee, some dried fruits and spent grains in the aroma. The flavor is on the sweet side, with toffee and some dried fruits. Some bitterness too, and unfortunately a little note of wet cardboard. Full-bodied and almost sticky sweet. Sweet, slightly bitter finish. Not my favorite one, but I think some food with it would have given a better experience. (090514)
