crossovert (7878) - Illinois, USA - DEC 28, 2011
"Schweinsbräu Dunkel". Brewed by Riedenburger Brauhaus. 500ml bottle. 08.09.2012. It pours a deep reddish brown with a fizzy off-white head that leaves no lacing. The smell is nice. Some floral noble hops mix with a nice bready maltiness with some caramel and dark fruit. The flavor is good. A bit sweet for a dunkel. It has a lot of sugar, caramel, and cocoa. There is a nice breadiness, a slight tang, mineral water character, and some fruit. The hops linger in the background with a hint of floral flavor and a slight little pinch of bitterness. The only thing I would say is that it is a bit thin so it has good drinkability but not really mouthfeel. It would be good in the summer.

DrSilverworm (6943) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2013
16.9oz bottle, thanks to Alicia M. for bringing this back for me. Shared at Natifest 2013. Mildly hazy golden orange amber color. Minimal off-white head. No lace sticks.. Chocolate, dark fruit aroma. Light carbonation, kind of soft. Medium-plus body. Dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some bigger nuttiness. This is a pretty good dunkel. A pleasant surprise, as the hefe I had from them was really disappointing.
