5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle: Pitch brown, nearly black, moderate frothy light beige head, very sticky lacing.   Subtle roasted malt nose, slightly bready, very minor fig/date as well.   Smooth malt body, pale roasted malts, very clean, no residuals.   Mouthfeel is fairly moderate tho.   This one is too easy to drink, a true measure of how good it is.   Probably one of the better ones I have had.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2006
This was awesome! Pours a deep reddish brown, with a nice rocky head. Almost porterish in the mouthfeel, with an ample amount of roastiness, chocolate and caramel with some tasty dark fruits. Not too heavy on the palate, but just right!

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Dark brown in appearance with huge beige head. Great lacing. Aroma is all chocolate up front. Plenty of toasted grain and roasted nuts. Flavor almost exactly like arom indicates. Nutty/roasted character comes through even more as it warms. Very subdued fig/prune flavor towards the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth, but thin at times. Not a dunkel fan at all, but this is pretty nice. Underrated IMO.

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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Great, slightly woodsy and ever so subtly sweet Dunkel. MMmmm, a little brown sugar interplays with a rich smoky (but not over the top) flavor. Aromas are of forest and earth. Palate just a touch watery. Great pockmarked ecru head. Wonderful example of the style.

alexanderj (3349) - Branson, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Bottle from the Chino Hills BevMo. Poured a dark brown with a good sized light brown head. Aroma was heavy on the roasted malt with chocolate and yeast. On my initial taste I thought this was the best I have had of the style. Went back and checked my ratings and I was proven correct. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malt, and caramel. Rich flavor that had some lactic sweetness. Palate was almost watery, but worked well.

nearbeer (3899) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2008 0.5 l.Opaque black with a sticky, lasting three-finger head. Grain, herb, molasses and corn on the nose. Grain and biscuit initial flavor turns to roasted corn and nuts, then finishes with a delicate balance of spicy-herb hop and cocoa flavors. Light-medium body is fairly smooth, slightly watery, and finishes just dry enough. Great, highly-sessionable alternative to the ubiquitous Oktoberfest and Pumpkin Ale fall seasonals.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Very nice pour, a mahogany dark enough to seem almost black, capped by a tall tan head that pasted heavy lacing to the sides of the glass. The aroma has chocolate, dark roasted malt, nuts, and the slightest hint of herbal/grassy hops. Rich malty flavor, grain and dark bread dough, milk chocolate, a soft spiciness... i.e., good stuff. It finishes both sweet and mildly dry. A very quaffable lager.

kapusta (88) - Dover, Delaware, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Dark, dark browm color, almost black, but light still goes through. Quickly diminishing taqn/brown head. Flavor is malty and bread-like. Nice bitter sweetness along with a slight roasted flavor. This is very well done.

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.
