CanIHave4Beers (3270) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 15, 2011
On tap at the Hessen Haus.
The beer pours a deep ruby color with a small well retained head that leaves some lace on the glass.

The aroma is very rich with chocolate and malty character, both lightly sweet and very clean.

The flavor is fruity with some cherry and chocolate out front some earthiness and a mild roastiness are in the background and this has a really enjoyable noble hop expression bringing a good balanced bitterness. The beer is not really very sweet as many of the dunkels we get in the US tend to be.

I quite like this.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. Another Bamberg beer labeled as a dunkel that doesn’t meet my paradigm, this again being more of an amber. Caramel malt with a tart finish. Good and enjoyable. Sure wish we could’ve eaten here. (#4398, 12/3/2011)

craftycarl21 (2227) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Draft at Churchkey. Cloudy brown burgundy pour with an average sized, fairly thick head. Nose and flavor are both strongly reminiscent of straight wort, along with toasted malt and nuttiness. Smells and tastes like a brewery. Crisp, drinkable on the mouthfeel. Pretty nice.

Bottled 500ml. -from random store in Bamberg. Dark amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, honeyish caramel nose. Moderate malty, caramel and light dried fruits with bready and mild nutty notes in the finish. Better than Thurn und Taxis St. Wolfgang Dunkel we tried earlier.

EithCubes (4902) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2011
I’m a big fan of Hoffmann and am hoping this bottle (by 09.02.12) is extra special. Nose of caramel and roasted malt, nutty with lush dark undercurrents and even some hops. Pours a gorgeous, only slightly see-through chestnut with a sudsy tan head. Taste is sweet. Prickly soft carbonation, faint acidity, light, thinnish body but with a warm nutty malt finish and aftertaste, no astringency in the subtle and balancing bitterness. Clean and fresh, caramel is under control and married to slight earthy and herbal tones. Not exceptional, but well made and enjoyed. Sköne Oke! Sköne Oke!

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 25, 2011
Another one courtesy of ogivlado (thanks!). Poured a slightly pale brown, bronzey colour. Honeyish soft malty nose. Honeyish light slightly sweet taste, quite nice, light tart fruity hopiness (green fruit), sligthly herbal, but no bitterness. Some unfortunate fishy notes show up too. Interesting, not great but ok.

downender (6290) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2011
Bottle. Chestnut coloured with a decent off-white head. Nutty, slightly roasty aroma with a bready edge. Flavour was malty, avoiding excessive sweetness, with some hazelnuts and dryish finish. Very good.
