Roasted aroma. Brown color, cloudy, light brown head, good lace. Sweet, roasted, medium body, quite alcoholic for a Dunkel. Long lasting malty and roasted caramel finish.

TBone (16163) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2009
Draught@"Brauhaus in Spandau". Dark hazy nut brown color, good creamy beige head, some lace. Malty, caramelly and a bit toasted aroma. A bit fizzy carbonation. Caramelly, straw/grassy hops. Bitterness in the aftertaste. Balanced and tasty, one of the best brewpub beers I had in Berlin.

(Draught at the brewpub, Berlin, 24 July 2010) Pale brown colour, cloudy, with brief beige head. Malty nose with dark bread, wort and a touch of brown sugar. Malty taste with notes of dark bread, wort, dried fruit and some brown sugar. Medium body, fairly sweet with some bitterness. Well balanced and quite nice.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - NOV 22, 2011
On draft at ’Hell oder Dunkel’. Diminishing, light tan head - brown, lightly hazy body with red highlights. Light toffee and raisiny malt in the nose with some bread crust. Raisin comes through bigger in the flavor with some mild roasted notes, and a pinch of chocolate. No hop presence. Medium bodied with prickly carbonation. Malt forward with light bitterness, but good attenuation. Lingering toffee and raisin. Another good one!

EithCubes (5619) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Tap at Hell oder Dunkel as ’Spezial Dunkel’. Dark brown with ruby edges barely lets an light through, creamy beige head. Low chocolate, earth, vague floating fruitiness, and only late do the delicious creamy mocha and light roast come rushing in. Low sweetness, low bitterness. Soft medium body, better than most brewpub offerings!

fiulijn (19160) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2005
Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy brown color, big creamy head. Some malt aroma and taste, quite round mouthfeel, ending with caramel and stronger bitterness. Too cold and not exciting.
