(swing top bottle) Hazy, slightly ruby brown coloured hue with floaties and a big and beige, also dense foamy head. Sweet and yeasty toasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, dark chocolate and shades of hops. Slightly bitter flavour, rather light bodied with a soft carbonation. Toasty malt-accented taste with caramel, a whiff of chocolate and rounded herbal notes; moderately dry hoppy and toasty bitter finish. 27.I.10

500 mL bottle from Beer Run. Pours a clear dark copper color with a large fizzy tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma of grain, toasted grain, nuts, dark fruits. The taste is sweet and grainy malts, raisins and a metallic hop finish. Medium bodied, average carbonation. About average.

"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.

Radek Kliber (6321) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle 500 ml
Aroma: plenty of chocolate in there. Mild soft nose, bit grainy soft barley feel. 6+
Appearance: copper-red brown with large fine creamy top. Thick, dense, presentable. Neat lace. 4+
Palate / Taste: medium light bodied. Very soft with gentle carbonation. Creamy mild chocolate with chewy texture. Too soft, buttery like feel.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is medium to dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, nuts, husks, grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of metal and rotten fruit. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, metallic. Ugh. As with the other two beers I’ve had from this brewer, this just plain sucks. Dirty, metallic, poor mouthfeel, and really clunky. Drain pour.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
500 ml bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy nut brown with amber highlights and a medium beige head. Notes of banana, clove, bread, wheat, caramel, and brown sugar. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, sweet mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Good dunkel.

jonas (5476) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 20, 2003
Honeyish yeasty and burned notes. Brown amber low head. Burned chokolaty taste with the same refreshing fizzy, grassy bitterhop finish as the helles. Medium body - very nice beer.
