thb (673) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Clear, dark brown/dark red, head is gone quickly. Aroma is roast, toast, brown sugar/molasses, chocolate. Sweetness is the main character from start to finish, but not so much to be sticky. One dimensional but pleasant.

Sweet front, but balanced with toast, dark sugars. Med brown. Not refined but not bad.

Masterkush7 (501) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
Dark coppery brown pour. Seems fairly clear, light tan coloured head, average size. Nose has dark chcocolate malt, and unsurprisingly, it has that same yeasty signature that all Phillips brews have. Taste is caramelly with cocoa powder, peanut skins, and a nice level of earhty roasty malt. Decent hit of bitterness coming from roast/dark malts at the end. Ends dryly with notes of iron and toasty grains. Average bodied, smooth mouthfeel, somewhat creamy. Pretty basic dunkel ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
Draught at The Whip Gallery, Vancouver
Dark brown color with red amber shades, small head. Smell of dirty, stale water, more than malt. Dry mouthfeel; dry caramel flavor, light, with an impression of dirty water; low bitterness.
Rather unnecessary.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
Rating #820 - December 11, 2013 - Beer 11 in the Phillips Snowcase. 5% Very dark pour with a weak tan head that is frothy, but fades quickly. Aroma is roasted malts, peat, funky campfire smoke, molasses. Taste is mild cofeee, chocolate, and molasses with a distinct smoky texture. Finish is quite smooth, this beer is quite enjoyable. Wondrous.

RumRunner101 (751) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 14, 2013
Clear, deep brown pour with tan head. Aroma is cocoa, toast, vanilla. Flavour is the same as the nose with toasted malt. Hops provide just enough balance to cut any sweetness. Dry, cocoa-y finish. Okay.

Alanthebeerguy (144) - - DEC 14, 2013
Pours a dark brown. Smells of chocolate, raisin and Christmas bread. Like a sweet porter. Finish is flat and watery. Not too familiar with Dunkels. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (950) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Snowcase day 11! Pours a clear deep brown with a small creamy beige head and decent legs. Aroma is rich Munich like malt, toast, nuts, toffee, and light chocolate. Flavour is bready/bread crust melanoidins, sweet maltiness, nutty, toffee, faint chocolate, mild bitterness, moderately dry and a little thin. Quite enjoyable Dunkelwizen.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle, from day 11 of Phillips Snowcase Advent Calendar 2013. Medium brown pour with coppery highlights and an average off white head. Aroma is milk chocolate with some bready and raisin undertones. Caramel and raisin sweetness offer accents to a fairly dull grainy palate. Just okay.

Reimer96 (1173) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Snowcase day 11.Pours a clear brown color with a huge frothy brown head that leaves lots of sticky lace. Aroma of caramel, nuts, coffee and a touch of sweet toffee. Taste is roasted malts, nuts, coffee, bit of cocoa and a nice dry and crisp finish. A little bit thin but overall this is a really good dunkel.
