Nice pig label. The b0dy is a clear chestnut c0l0r t0pped by a tall, pale tan head. The ar0ma is w0rty with0ut getting t00 sweet and has a splash 0f mineral water t0 it. It tasted rich and malty, caramel/toffee, again n0t t00 sweet, with a t0uch 0f ash. I liked this 0ne.

DrSilverworm (5029) - 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.

Strykzone (4479) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle poured into a dimple mug. A big root beer like head takes some patience and a few pours before the bottle was emptied. I smell bready malt and soggy grain. No carbonation in the mouth and the feel is watery. Cocoa flavor is not big but is prominent. Applesauce and wet grass. Fruit is almost hidden. This is kind of ho hum.

Pailhead (4417) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of toffee, fruit, and light nuts. It pours a transparent orangish-brown sith a two fingers off white head that leaves behind some sporadic webbing for lacing. The flavor starts with toffee and light fruit. The finish has light-moderate nuts and light tootsie roll notes. It has mild carbonation and a somewhat thin mouthfeel. Overall, flavor is solid but mouthfeel leaves a little to be desired.

wlajwl (3557) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Aroma is strong toffee/caramel, earthiness and a hint of spice. The flavor is toffee/caramel, light fruit, thin body and a odd off tangy note in the finish.

obguthr (3439) - Lynchburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Aroma is dried leaves and tea with elderberry accents. Clear rust, medium yellow head. Strong tea flavor, astringent. Elderberry is ever present. Mouthfeel is fizzy. This isn’t one of my favorite styles, but this one had personality. There are other detractors but at least this somewhat distinctive.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2013
500ml, swing-top bottle from some small shop in Munich. Pours a clear, deep brown colored body with a finger-width, frothy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is fairly malty sweet with some richer caramels, a few fruity notes, a bit of a toasty bread, and a soft bittering hint. Flavor is similar. Caramels and some toasty toffee up front with a nice dark fruit, slight bread, and light cocoa note. Finishes clean, smooth, and somewhat dry with a light-medium bitterness before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkel. Nice caramel, toast, and fruit notes with a solid, clean bitterness. Nice beer.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Bottle. Deep red-brown body, thin beige head/ring. Nose of toffee, prune, and toast. Sweet body, with prune, fig, and raisin toast, some slick syrupy sweetness. Slight oxidation. Fairly rich with a pretty good bite.
