muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 27, 2006
500 ml bottle from Table & Vine, Northampton MA (Feb 2006). Served at cellar temperature in a St. Ambroise glass. No pop is heard from the swing-top stopper, discouraging....perhaps this is last year’s batch?....but I pour and there’s a sizable, lasting frothy head topping the deep brown, clear body....nose is very bock-like, thick sweet caramel and light graininess, though there is a touch of licorice and perhaps juniper for some spicy festive times....pleasant and fresh....in the mouth, lightly toasted grains and hints of caramelized sugar, chocolaty and medium-bodied, with the sizable sweetness drying out considerably by midpalate for a smooth, oily, lean finish with just a touch of wet cardboard....nice, drinkable, on the verge of some problems in the mouthfeel and like other Mahrs beers, just not quite as good as it seems it could be, if that makes any sense.

GregClow (2819) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2006
Bottle shared with tupalev & jerc - courtesy of tupalev. Ruby-brown with a big, bubbly beige head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma is odd - quite spicey, but a bit burnt & earthy. I think I like it, but it took a few minutes to get into it. Flavour has a very nice sweet and malty character, a bit nutty, with a dry, slightly smoky finish. Interesting stuff, glad I tried it.

Gorbalev (2895) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 28, 2006
Bottle shared with Jerc and GregClow. Very dark brown, small beige head. Sweet spicy dark malt aroma with some nutmeg - almost reminds of Anchor our Special Ale a bit - fig, some hops. Interesting stale malt taste, almost porter like. Some spiciness. A little dry smoke in finish. Very dry. OK.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2006
Bottle. Very dark brown body with a big beige head that diminishes. (3+) Muted aroma is a ashen-smokey-roast nutty mocha mess. Lingering dry chalky acidity. Average to medium palate. Just something about it rubs me the wrong way.

heykevin (1273) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - FEB 19, 2006
Deepest ruby, nice head. Nutty, roasty, moderately sweet aroma, dusty. Medium-bodied, moderately sweet. Some toast and roasty malts, nutty, with a trace of metal in the finish. Solid.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2006
Bottle (500ml - swing top). Poured very dark brown-mahogany with a huge, thick, creamy-sticky-shiny lasting tan head - nice drapes of lacing. Very dry dark-roast malt aroma, nutty, lactic, some prunes, burnt caramel dark chocolate and yeast. Taste is milder than the aroma promises, nutty roast malt, milk chocolate, hint of woodsmoke, and a bit sour - mouthfeel is slick, creamy, a little watery - nice smooth and creamy linger, not too sweet.

oldrtybastrd (3225) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Pours a deep dark brown. Aromas of roasted malts, smoke, and hints of fruit. Flavors of the roasted malts, some fruit, with a coffee aftertaste.

BBB63 (5751) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Bottle with a snappy swing top that poured a deep brown hue with reddish highlights. The beer is topped by a small but tight off-white head that left better than average lacing. The aroma has notes of caramel and nutty malts, rye, dusty yeast esters, prune, and some bittersweet chocolate. The taste starts less sweet than I would have guessed with a bit of acidic fruit snap on top of the rich malts. Grainy and malty throughout this nicely drinkable brew. Light grassy bitterness on the finish which was lively and refreshing on the palate. A nice surprise, I enjoyed this more than expected, worth the $3.50.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 15, 2006
Dark dunkel like with abundant lace. Fresh taste at Pizza Plant Transit. Roast in aroma, taste like a deep rich wine. Yeast is there to round out satisfying aftertaste. Full mouthfeel.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Pours an opaque black with dark brown edges and a nicely-lacing frothy tan head, looks more like a schwarzbier than a dunkel. Lightly sweet dark malty aroma has a touch of dark chocolate and a hint of smoke. Full body starts with a pleasant toasty malty sweetness turning somewhat nutty and drier toward the slightly sticky roasted caramel finish. This is a solid dunkel.
