thenick (766) - North Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Bottle from Peculier Pub, NYC. Pours a deep reddish-brown to almost black with a small tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with slight other characteristics. Flavor is roasted malt up front dissolving into hop, chocolate, and caramel notes in the end. Not bad, but not spectacular either.

Light brown head on a dark brown body. Very roasted and bitter. I have never been a fan of dunkels, and this is a good example.

flemmingwillum (994) - Nysted, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 Perfect appearance for a dunkel! The beer is completely opague red/brown and has an incredibly dense head in the precisely correct amount, and it lasts in a very long time. The aroma, however, is not very impressive. It has nice touches of caramel malts and sweetness in general, but is not very obvious. The flavor is very nice, with it’s obvious malty and sweet taste with notes of smoke, and a nice bitterness in the finish. The beer seems medium bodied the most of the time, but i can seem a little thin sometimes. However, this is still a very nice beer.
