matta (1140) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2004
Another beer that was halved with the dude at The Brew Shack.

Poured a nice dark smoky amber body, closer to a coco color. The head was a fat and fluffy tan hue. My palate rejoiced with the toasted malts and smoky compliance. There was a nice balancing of doughy yeasty tartness, sweet barley- toffee-like extractions, and some light spicy notes of orange zest. I took most pleasure in the grand holiday nutty-ness and smokiness of the brew. Yet another beer that has what I always distinguish as pumpernickel bread proposals, but this one also had some hints of coco. The palate was not overly rich but it worked rather nicely with all the beers lightly festive characters! Simply a very Drinkable brew, with a dry smoky finish, and the low abv makes it a nice session beer as well!

timfoolery (1125) - California, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Dark in appearance, this brew seemed a bit watered down compared to other darks. The taste was of coffee and chocolate, but muted. It’s a pretty good brew, but not full bodied enough for my taste.

CamdenD (1118) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 9, 2006
This was a tasty beer. Very drinkable and terribly quenching on a summer’s eve. Marked as a bock by my bar, but this one is good regardless of its denomination. Drink.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Pours darkbrown with a thin but lasting light brown head. Flavor has lots of brown sugar, mollasses and roasted malt. Little bitterness.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2008
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.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2007
Cool swing-top bottle. Dark but clear brown with a big tan head. Molasses, malt, and smoke. Not so much smoke in the taste, but lots of malt, cocoa, and earthiness. Lighter than expected mouthfeel. Dry finish.

Probiere (992) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2005
Hmm, another German dunkel with more dark and roasty notes as opposed to caramelly ones. I’m not complaining. Although I have recently had a few real clunkers in the German hefe department, this is solid and drinkable, if unremarkable.

hapjydeuce (983) - Carlsbad, California, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Bottled from Holiday Wine Cellars. Never being a fanatic of dunkels or other Deutsch beers for that matter, I gave this festive seasonal brew a go. Cocoa powder, caramel and a light touch of smoked malts mask the beer out of the bottle. Dark copper brown with minimal head formation. Sweet tones of maple sugars, chocolate and roasty earth notes cement the beer’s flavor. Nothing much more intriguing to me that I noticed. Crisp and light finish, no heaviness whatsoever. Im going back to Belgium.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours a nice deep and clear brown, with a huge head of light brown foam that recedes to a thin cap in about a minute. Decent lacing. Mild chocolate malt in the aroma. More bittersweet chocolate in the flavor, along with a little bit of toasted malt. Fresh and clean, medium body, solid carbonation, with a mild hopping for balance. Good balance, good smooth drinking.

robertjm (807) - Albany, California, USA - FEB 17, 2008
Pours a very thick foamy tannish colored head. Beer itself is dark brown. Aroma not very prevalent. Perhaps that of slightly wet newspaper. Fairly high in carbonation with brown malts on in the flavor. Flavors open up slightly after bottle has been open and beer has a chance to warm up a little. Typical thin body of a germanic brew. It was on the close-out rack at Bevmo for $2/btl. Kind makes me wish I’d bought more.
