kingstoni (1532) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2012
Bottle. Almost black color with a thin brown head. Aroma has some smokiness. Dry taste with more bitterness than I’ve used to taste with dunkels. Medium thin body.

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.

Tranquillity (1419) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2008
Draught. Very good, full, buttery taste. Thought this was the porter I ordered, that’s how full it was. Almost black colour, thick beige head. Good buttery aroma.

[Sampled in 2005.] A sweet beer for the style. Otherwise a mainstream product.

ogreface (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 2, 2011
Pivo söröző, Budapest, csapolva Egészen sötétbarna színe van, habja bézs színű, nagy buborékos és kitartó. Illata vizes földes, gyógynövényes, karamellás. Ízében is érezni a karamellát de nem túlságosan, fekete csoki, pörkölt magvakat és rozskenyeret érezni benne, kissé földes aromával. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes és kissé gyümölcsös. Egy jobb fajta cseh barna, ami nem túl édes.

onystrom (1321) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2006
Beautiful dark red color with okay head. Sweet flavor of malt and caramel, a bit too sweet.

inbirraveritas (1242) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2011
Bottle from „Pivo Söröző”, Bp. Clear, reddish dark brown coloured brew with a frothy beige head on its top. The nose is sweet with caramel. Tasteing begins sweet with a slick mouthfeel followed in the middle by caramel, yeast and some light notes of hops, flavour’s of brown sugar and dried fruits. The sweet-sourish and medium dry finish is escorted by roasted malt, which leaves at last a sweet-roasty aftertaste behind. An adequately balanced and very good drinkable czeh dunkel.

Poirs dark brown with hint of red. Medium head. Aroma is roasted malts and caramel. Flavor is malty, sweet and a bit metallic.

flemmingwillum (1010) - 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.
