50 cL bottle, courtesy of Papsoe. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted and malty. Sweet malty, light cornish syrupy. Roasted malt and slight dark toffee caramelish. Slight acidic to vague citric into a malt driven finish. Rather fruity into the far finish.

Ungstrup (30936) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2010
Bottled. A deep red beer with a lazing light tan head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, malt, and a bit of metal, leading to a nicely bitter finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of oh6gdx. Pours a clear warm orangey brown with a creamy beige head leaving some laces. Roasted malt in the nose - and a little smoke?? Solid body with a massive malt base. Roasted malts, sweet caramel and a whiff of glue. Again a whiff of smoke. Quite some bitterness in the finish. Not really a Dunkel at 6.3% right? And the smoky accents confuse. 230310

oh6gdx (23131) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 3, 2008
Bottled. Deep ruby colour (near black), small beigeish brown head. Aroma is mild caramel malts, sugar and some balancing mild notes of hops. Flavour is much the same. Compared to the Velikonoční Podkrkonošsky Speciál Tmavý, this one lacks the candyish sweetness and pretty much the roasted notes.
Earlier Rating: 4/3/2007 Total Score: 3.3
Bottled. Dark rubyish brown colour with mediumsized brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel and some sweet dark sugary notes. Flavour is caramel, toffee, slightly roaste dmalts and some hops. Candyish sweetness lurking in the background. Not too bad.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Very dark brown, minimal head. Interesting madeira aroma. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Boldly malty with vinous plums and saccharine. Low bitterness.

Leighton (14695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle shared in London. Thanks to Fergus. Pours clear red-brown with a dense, foamy beige head. The nose holds lightly tangy berries, other dark fruits and brown bread. Medium sweet flavor with toasted bread, light toffee, semi-dry dark fruits, earth. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with some dry and toasty bread, further berries, mellow toffee. Quite basic overall.
