Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 26, 2004
A red-brown beer with no head. The aroma is of roasted bread. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of bread. A boring beer - especially the flavor.

rauchbier (3645) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2004
Bottle, DBF 2004. Bronze, thin white head and moderate condition. Unappealing saccharine sweet and caramely aroma, leaning more towards caramel and toffee in the mouth. Nasty sticky sweet finish.

boto (1921) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUN 13, 2004
33cl bottle: This was a pretty good beer. I thought it had somewhat more Belgian characteristics than that of a Dunkel. The beer was a nice amber color. It was fairly clear with a generous head. The aroma was somewhat caramel/malty sweet. There were similar notes to the taste. Smooth. Not bad for a common "Supermarket" beer in France!

Hansen (7261) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUN 11, 2004
Brown. Medium head. Strait forward ale/dunkel. Nothing special, but also no flaws. Nice, pure and simple.

Dogbrick (9109) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2004
Bottle at Le Carrousel cafe in Paris. Murky dark brown color with a thin beige head and thin slippery lacing. The aroma is very malty. Syrupy body with a strong malt flavor that is borderline malt liquor. The finish is cloyingly sweet. Probably the best French beer I have tried thus far, but still not great.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - FEB 19, 2004
Got this one for free from Gavin, the owner of "Bottles" in London! Thanks Gavin!
Pours a clear dark amber body with a foamy head. Malty nose. Sweet and spicy flavor with roasted malt, nut and raisins.

jerohen (2055) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2004
Bottled. After the last day of skiing this was a nice ending of the vacation. Hazy brown coloured, medium head. Typical dunkel, malty, caramel and candy sugar. Good brew.

caesar (5585) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2004
Bottled. Beautiful cloudy brown color, medium off-white head. Typical dunkel aroma, some caramel malts, some raisin and candy sugar. Sweet malty taste, some chocolate notes. Bit sticky palate. Very nice french dunkel.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2004
Bottle, served in a wine glass at Cafe Claude in Gros Islet, St. Lucia: Dark amber and mostly clear with a reddish glow. Fizzy head thinned out quickly. Sugared apple nose. Smooth and sweet malts, though not cloying. Notes of candy sugar and spiced apples. Big notes of raisins and dates. Alcohol was hidden fairly well -- just a little nip here and there. Dry, carbonated finish, with only a hint of bitterness.

jonas (6003) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2003
Bitterhop and caramel nose. Lovely chestnut brown, low but stable head. Sweet dark malt flavors, a bit too dominating perhaps. Smooth texture, rich body. Ok.
