Pours deep red color with medium white head. Aroma is light and malty sweet. Body is light but there is a certain thickness to it that swirls around the tongue. Flavor is nutty and slightly smokey.

hayduke (3159) - Eureka, California, USA - APR 11, 2008
From a 500 ml bottle this poured into a pint glass was a nice reddish brown with a very fat and thick creamy head that settled very slowly and left nice lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and light coffee and chocolate. Medium but enjoyable mouthfeel, and flavors of toffee and nuts. Medium dry finish. Pretty good.

FlacoAlto (3737) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 2, 2008
A brisk pour produces an almost four-finger thick, lightly amber tinged, tan colored head that just crests the top of my 25cl tulip glass. The beer is a murky, dark amber / red color but shows a brilliantly clear, cranberry stained, bright amber color when held up to the light. The aroma is quite malt focused as this is noticeable upon pouring the beer. Sweet, caramelized malt notes are backed by ample toasty malt notes. Aromas of biscuits, lightly toasted – yet hardy dark German bread, light raisin / berry notes and even a touch of lightly roasted coffee in the finish. I really like how malty and rich this beer’s nose is; quite satiating all by itself.

Sweet tasting up front, but actually surprisingly light bodied for how rich the aroma was. Quaffable just like a good Dunkel should be and it has a nice, persistent carbonation that adds a bit of a prickly texture to the brew. Richly toasted malt notes evoke flavors of chewy, whole grain bread, light raisin notes. Perhaps a bit thin up front, but the rich, albeit not thick, malt character soaks into the palate and boosts the perceived richness of this brew. A touch of age is starting to show through the malt here; it contributes a light sherry note that only seems to add to the complexity more than anything.

A tasty brew, I really like the deep maltiness that this beer attains. Definitely a satisfying drinking experience.

Pours attractive garnet brown with a huge tan, smooth foamy head. The nose is sweet and slightly roasted malt. The flavor is the same with a clean finish.

illidurit (2050) - Petaluma, USA - MAR 1, 2009
500 mL bottle. Pours a nice umber/mahogany shade with a creamy beige head. Leaves some fine spotty lacing. Aroma is nutty with some fresh baked dark bread and caramel. Toasted grain flavor with sweeter toffee/caramel notes. A little bit of earthy character and a slightly metallic note on the finish. Light and dry, but could use more body. Finish is on the watery side. Smooth carbonation, easy to drink. Decent dunkel but not robust enough.
