frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2008
A Guinness pint glass provided an apropos vessel for this dubious dunkel... despite its lack of a cascade, Jubelfestbier provided a similar sepia body and a full, mocha head which fell slowly forming an intriguing reverse meniscus. An all-malt aroma procures low, roasty coffee notes amidst full dark fruit, earth and cookie. Semi-sweet chocolate flavor with pruney fruitiness carried in a smooth, full body. This is only slightly watery in the finish, although her flavor carries long. Slight mineral characteristics late. A delicious concoction, despite my assumption that this was going to be a Marzen due to its name. Plus, it cellared nicely for over a year. (And for those of you who may be questioning, the answer is: Yes. Possibly.) ))))) &lt;font size=-4&gt;1 pt. 9 fl. oz. bottle from &lt;a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/Place/new-york/a Beverage</u></a>, Albany, NY 12208&lt;/font&gt;

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells of spice, chocolate, some toasted malt, some pepper. Tastes sweet and chocolatey with some tea, and dark fruit present. Rich mouthfeel and a very enjoyable beer. Hard to believer this is an under 5% beer.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 16, 2008
<b>15-Sep-08</b> <i>(500-ml swing-top bottle: Purchased 02-May-08 for $5.99 at Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido, CA)</i> With a full-on attack of rich, sweet cocoa, milk chocolate, earth and nuts, this dunkel offers an uncommon chocolaty richness, but lacks the full complexity and depth of the very best German examples. No doubt, the principle flavor of chocolate is delicious, but the melanoidin toastiness and the light roast are missing, as is a gentle hop counterpoint. Fragrant aromas of decadent chocolate and a touch of earth in the nose with a clean, lager character. Medium in body with a soft mouthfeel and delicate carbonation, but the sweetness borders on cloying after awhile. The beer pours a beautiful, clear, ruby-chestnut body with an inch of fluffy, dark-tan head that very slowly settles to a thin, everlasting layer. All in all, too much reliance on cocoa and the sweetness tends to get a bit much, but despite being fairly one-dimensional, it’s still a very tasty and enjoyable beer.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2008
[Sampled draught at Bamberg Camping.] Nice tap look with good beige head and a wonderful aroma of caramel and weak roast. Other notes is nuts, toffee, wellcarbonated. Smooth and nice.

joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Dark chocolate color with a thin, creamy tan head. Molasses, rosted malts, and smoked wood aromas. Medium sticky body. Smokey and sweet flavor. Tastes mostly of roasted malts: caramel, toffee, molasses, with a little chocolate coming through. It has a bittersweet, dusty earth finish. Nice example.

thegreenrooster (3198) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2008
Pour is a dark brown with a mild chocolate looking head. Aroma is some caramel and molasses with a bit of sweetness. Flavor is chocolate and and roasted malt with a sweet aftertaste. Not a bad little beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6854) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Courtesy of CigarCityBrew. Pours clear deep amber with thin white head. The aroma is sweet molasses, caramel, toffee, sweet Concord grape jam and mild mustiness. The taste is thin with semi sweet molasses and faint dark fruitiness to go along with some Munich like grainy malts. Pretty good but the aroma paints a better picture than the beer flavor can support.

marcus (6438) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
This black beer poured with a fluffy tan head and a mild caramel aroma. The flavor is mostly candy sugar and caramel malt. The body is too thin and ;there is an odd aftertaste.

Bottle courtesy Degarth. Pours a clear dark brown with ruby highlights and a small off-white head. Aroma of tea and caramel. Taste is astringent tea. Medium thin mouthfeel with a mild amount of bitterness. This bottle was past its prime.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Aroma is a big gust of candy, some brown sugar and malt, garnet, wears a tiny toffee head. Taste is full roast malts, almost like malt/maple syrup. Medium bodied, sweet and mellow. Very nice. Thanks Radek.
