olsvammel (6293) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty smell and taste, a bit like smelling a bag of fresh malts. Nice, but it felt like it should be enjoyed in a german pub from a large glas.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2002
Well, i had the old one named Munich, and the new one named Wien. Well i thought the Munich was pretty ordinary, also had a burnt ash flavour that made me want to stop drinking it, however the one i had under the new name (wien), tasted a bit better (but maybe i was dreaming), seemed to have a hoppier and more bearable, this score is an average of the two.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2002
Now this beer is called ’Wien’ because of some stupid EU-law. A lovely munich dunkel. Great spicy aroma and a wonderful malty and nutty taste. Great.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2010
0.5 l bottle From K-Market Länsiväylä, Jyväskylä. Dark amber color. Malty, nutty, toffeish and caramelly aroma. Toffeish and nutty flavor with some toasty notes. Nice nutty aroma, the flavor is OK but does not have that fresh maltiness present in best dunkels.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 1, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2006 (Bottled) Clear, dark amber color with a very small head. Dried-fruity, caramely, sweetish-malty aroma. Sourish, a bit vineous, caramely-malty flavor with some Scotch feel. Medium-bodied, quite low-carbonated, slicky palate. A nicely, smoothly caramely brew, but could be fuller in body. I’d place it somewhere between English and Scotch ales, although the brewer calls it a Münchener. ("Slottskällans Wien", May 1, 2004, was 5-4-6-3-13=3.1) Nice, dark red color with a small head. The aroma is malty with a hint of pine - and both sweet and dry. Dry, roasted-malty flavor with a bitter finish. Medium-bodied, oily and dry palate with balanced carbonation. Not bad.
