3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Henrik. This is a deep mahogany brown one with a really bubbly light beige top. It smells really subtle, but I’m able to pick up tones of burned sugar, dark malts and some hints of cocoa and chocolate paper. It opens a bit more up after a while in the glass. Tastes quite nice though, and it has a thin oily texture wit a soft to average carbonation level. Light cocoa flavored with dark malts and a soft gentle tone of burned caramel before it ends with a hint of cold wood in the finish. A nice one. 10.07.2012

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. The colour is very deep reddish brown with a medium beige compact and coffee-like head. Wonderful sweet aromas of chocolate, sweet malt, dades, some roast, little bit of lactose and ice coffee. Very nice flavours as well with some of the same things; chocolate, dried fruit and caramel. Has a slick mouthfeel, and a light bitterness. A surprisingly balanced and good dunkel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 L bottle from Kræs&Kram, Nordby, Samsø. Very dark, reddish brown body with good clarity. A layer tan fish-eyes on top. Rounded, dark caramel-scented malts to the nose. Notes of sweet bakery and raisins. Clean, medium full malt body. On the sweet side, yet with a certain freshness. Nice dark caramel flavor, some dark dried fruits, and a discreet peppery bitterness. Well- bodied. Smooth and juicy in the mouth. Rounded malt finish. Very likeable.

Draught at the brewpub
Dark brown color, brownish head. Mild aroma of caramel and bread. Good body strength and smooth mouthfeel; strong caramel flavor, light malt, light flavor of roasted malt and liquorice, and a very light feeling of oxidization; there is a light sweetness too. Correct bitterness.

Rating #710, as Knuthenborg Bryg Dark, bottle shared with Brianwillum. BB: 31.12.11
It’s an almost black beer with a brown hue, and ok head. Nose has roasted malts, a bit liquorice, coffee and some salt-like aroma. Taste of chocolate, malt and sugar sweetness, still a bit liqourice, cheese, and maybe some wood-like notes like an old woodpill boiler. Soft and creamy palate, though a bit thin. Nice enough beer.

Flaske: Rødbrun uklar øl med et fint lille hvidt skumhoved. Sødlig duft af malt med en let frugt. Bitter finish trækker en god del op i en ellers ordinær munchener. Svigermekanikken kunne lide den.
