Geiserich (3384) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle: Reddish brown/amber color, creamy brownish head. Malty, carmalic, sweetish and light roasty aroma. Flavor is sweetish, malty, caramelic. Light cacao and roasted malt notes. Ok but too sweetish for me.

Saeglopur (327) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 3, 2014
Seems that this isn’t retired anymore. Bought a bottle a few days ago in a supermarket in Vorchdorf, near the brewery. Dark red to brown, clear body, with a big, frothy, beige head, that isn’t very stable. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, nuts, red and dark berries and also some metallic notes. Taste with about the same aromas, but sweeter, with the fruity and caramel notes more present and with metallic notes again. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a low carbonation and it finishes sweet and slightly roasty-bitter. Firstly, the metallic notes aren’t really pleasant, but at least they disappear more and more the more this beer warms up. Otherwise this is an average Dunkel, that isn’t bad, but, as many other beers of this style, too sweet for my liking. Overall decent, but not as good as I expected.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2008
500 mL bottle had in Vienna on 6/3. Darker brown color of any other dunkel I had while in Europe. Nutty, roasty aroma. Flavor was nutty and caramel. Lightly dry finish. Carbonation was lively on the tongue but not overdone. Definitely the best dunkel I had while in Europe and one that I wouldn’t mind drinking again.

webjedi (250) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Nothing special of note here. Bland dark beer, with a little caramel roast on it. Pretty thin on the mouth, and little to no head. The comment regarding the "floaty white particulate" was disheartening, and was wondering if the addition was intentional. Would expect, if this was bottle conditioned, it’d have more of a kick, but it came off as boring. (Bottle Pour 4/25/2008)

ogivlado (5703) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 21, 2008
Bottled(500ml). -Dark brown coloured, medium sized tan head, dusty caramelish nose. Light roasted malt and mild chocolate taste with nutty and toffee notes. Also nutty finish. Just average dunkel, and to be honest I’ve expected more. Hm...first rate from Europe...

nuplastikk (4396) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 18, 2008
500ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with some floaty white particulates. Minimal head quickly fades. Mellow, watery, and smooth. Chocolate toffee taste is there, slightly burnt. The finish is sweet with a hint of pungency. Minimal to no hop presence. An authentic example of the style.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Bottle. Dark brown color, opaque, medium head. Caramel or toffee aroma with hints of chocolate and roast. Full flavored. Bready, toasty, some roast and a nuttiness. A touch too sticky sweet. Full bodied. Very good.

Braudog (5743) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 14, 2008
1/2 litre bottle. Poured nicely, with a pitch black hue, solidly opaque, and a substantial amount of Germanic off-white foam sheltering it all from the top. The aroma is sweet and slightly chocolatey. The chocolate is also my very first impression in the flavor which also carries a mellow marshmellowy malt. Not the most stirring beer, but a quality quaff nonetheless. (#3322, 2/14/2008)

3fourths (8023) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Draft at the Saloon in DC. Dark and cloudy amber brown colored body with a tall brown salt-and-pepper speckled head. The nose has a moderately strong spiced juniper and wood note, with a heavy presence of doughy brown sugar yeast. The flavor of soggy bread and semi-sweet malt syrup is about as much as you can get out of this one. Just a faint bit of hops near the finish, and some mildly fruity wood and bread notes make up the rest of this beers flavor spectrum. A bit watery and thin, overall.
