Clear reddish brown hue, thick head of enduring foam. Malty aroma, toasty, mild nutty choclate. Sweet smooth palate, notes of chocolate and raisin bread, dry walnut finish. Nice flavor, very subtley done without becoming too sweet.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - NOV 9, 2005
(500 ml bottle: $2.49 at BevMo in La Jolla, CA) Batch L5040. Hey, now this is pretty good. A little different from the other German dark beers I’ve tasted, this one shows considerably more toasty and chocolaty maltiness than the others and less of the caramel flavor. In fact, the toasty chocolate is very prominently on display here and it’s tasty as hell. Sweetness is mild, as is hops or bitterness, but there’s enough bitterness toward the finish to provide suitable balance for me. Toast and chocolate dominate the nose. Body is medium and carbonation is on the gentle side, so this is smooth on the palate and easy to drink. Clear, medium brown in color and topped by a tall, tan head that shows solid retention, never settles below a quarter inch in height. Lacing consists of a few small patches of dense foam. Overall, a very tasty beer, one that goes down entirely too easy as I’ve polished off this bottle in no time. Definitely a beer I’ll be buying again.

Just a side note. The beer I rated today was purchased yesterday. I compared it with an older bottle that I had access to, Batch L4014, and that older beer seems thinner and much less chocolaty. Enough difference that I wouldn’t have thought they were the same beer. 4014 was pretty good, but 5040 was significantly better.

Rich roasty aroma. Caramel appearance. Rich roasty, caramel, brown sugar, light on the palate though. Very good.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2007 Aroma is sweet malts with very faint molasses notes that effect a molasses/brown sugar infused bread aroma. Body is a transparent mahogany amber and holds a fluffy tan head that is a full two fingers thick. Fore is crisp and slightly biting (unexpected) then sweet smooth malt flavors follow. Sweet bread, sugary syrup notes, toasty malts and mashed banana/vanilla wafers. Fairly aggressive hopping for the style leads to a mildly bitter and dry finish.

cchubb (74) - Minneola, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Orange, not golden, with tall bright white head and good carbonation to bring the aromas of chocolate, dried apple and apricot and a slight burnt aspect. Wheaty body and zero astringency with sweet backbone almost make me think of a bock, but the low ABV makes a second glass much more drinkable.

nickd717 (3497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 14, 2012
On tap at Biergarten in San Francisco. Dark amber brown in color with a large foamy khaki colored head. Great aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, toast, and some Munich malts. Caramel and toffee malt base, medium sweetness, with some strong toasty notes and mild fruit. Complex. Medium-bodied with a good level of carbonation. Really liked this one overall.

Reid (1900) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2012
1.09 pint bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $3.99 Clear brown/red beer with a large frothy light tan head. Nice Caramel,milky coffee and doughy aromas..quite pleasant really. Taste is caramel, milk chocolate,hazelnuts and cream.. lovely stuff really. Great palate with very little carbonation leads to silkiness and high drinkability. Enjoyed this highly recommended.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2006 Found this on the menu in Wolfgang Puck’s restaurant Spago in Caesar’s resort in Vegas. This respected german chef cares about his beer choices! I love a good dunkel, and this fits the bill-- slightly orange-brown with a tall tan head. Loads of caramel, faint chocolate, with hints of pear-apple fruit and charred toast. Delicious!

Pours a light amber with light white head. Smells of syrupy fruits and roasted malts. I have heard this beer compared tot a peanut butter, jelly, and banana sandwich. I can see the comparison. Definitely get that in the taste with some malts and a little chocolate, reminiscent of most dunkels I’ve had. Very good brew.
