wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 14, 2008
Dark brown in hue with a huge, tan, whipped cream looking head. Fairly big aroma of cocoa nibs, coffee beans (light roast), grass and toffee primarily. Behind that is some hay, pepper and a slightly dusty/chalky element. The flavour is incredibly sweet with lots of sugar and caramel -- milk chocolate and over-sweetened coffee to a lesser degree. The finish is half dry...paper or leather, softly bitter...fades into wateriness and apple skins. Sticky texture, medium (or just over) bodied and the carbonation is completely lost in the stickiness. All of the dust, paper, leather is uncalled for and it can be near cloying at times, but decent outside of that. 50cl, draught at Gastropub Praha.

NosirIwont (1938) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2007
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a big, beige/brown fluffy head. Sweet, malty aroma with notes of caramel. Grassy notes appear as it warms. Flavour is pretty much the same, but has a sharp/sourish touch. Finish is malty with lingering notes of licorice and a medium bitterness. Feels a bit watery. 23-12-07.

Maria (10121) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2007
Brown/black with a huge head. The aroma is sweet and malty. The flavour is sweetish and rather thin, but it has weak notes of candy sugar and caramel. It has a light bitterness and in the end a hint of licorice. Uninspiring IMO.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - NOV 25, 2007
Bottle 0.5 l. Very deep red, almost opaque. Nose is roasted malts and some syrup. Flavor is nicely dry and roasted, not overly sweet. Much better than the Rebel pils, not as metallic. One of the better dunkels.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 11, 2007
500ml bottle. Almost black, large frothy beige head. Slightly sweet and metallic aroma. A bit thin in the mouth - sugars and a bitter burntness that becomes metallic. Can’t put my finger on it, but something was missing. Quite gluggable though.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2007
Bottled. Very dark ruby-brown colour, huge brownish/beige head. Aroma is fruits, earth, caramel malts and some mild smoked notes. Flavour is roasted malts, caramel malts, with some hints of smoke and chocolate. A bit rubbery/metallic in the finish, otherwise the flavour was really nice.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2007
Bottled (BB 06/2008)
Very dark ruby-brown color, good cloudy beige/brownish cloudy head, some lace. Ash, toasted and caramelly malts, also same unclean notes than in another Czech dunkel - 1795 Budejovické Pivo. Flavor starts very sweet, caramelly with brown sugar and even chocolaty notes. Then later some hops, roasty flavors and metallic hints in the aftertaste. Also in the flavor is same unclean feeling than in the nose (unclean I like drinking beer from unclean tap).

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 19, 2007
Near black colored with red hints. Big beige head. Caramelly aroma with some bubblegum and mild roastiness, rather sweet one. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is more roasted with still this sweetness dominating, caramel also in start. Aftertaste turns to bittersweet with mild roasted tone. Basic Czech dunkel, still maybe too sweet for me. Crispy palate with some carbonation.

pivnizub (8724) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle: Very deep ruby-amber colour with a smaller, almost creamy stable sandy head, deep fruity (dried dark berries) and coffeeish-roast-malty nose; robust bitter-sweet flavour, medium-bodied; lingering sweet-caramelly finish, rounde by some sweet-malty bitterness. Very good stuff.......

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 12, 2007
(Bottled) Very dark brown with a medium, light beige head. Mild, moderately roasty aroma with some chocolate. Neutral, somewhat roasty flavor with some lactic sourness and hints of chocolate and licorice. Light to medium-bodied, a bit creamy palate with balanced carbonation. A quite balanced and enjoyable, but basic dunkel.
