MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2007
(draught at the Spitalgarten) Clear, dark brown colour with a reddish shine and a short beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty nose with a distinctive berry fruity touch and light notes of caramel. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Tasty, slightly fruity taste with a touch of caramel; moderately dry, toasty and slightly bitter finish.

Quack-Duck (8921) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2009
bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear deep dark brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Aroma of chocolate and roasetd malts. Medium-bodied, malty with roasetd malt, hints of chocolate and walnut. A nice one.

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 11, 2015
Draught Very huge dense light-beige head over deep brown beer with a reddish sheen; lacerings. Huge head hampers nasal perception. Chestnut, chocolate, and other dark malts. Sweetish, nutty & bready, again chocolate, even some mocha. Medium bodied at best, but quite slick; again better carbonated in feel than visual. Quite nice Dunkles!

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Lengthy malt flavors share hazelnuts, toast and grilled marshmallows, as cherry-like Munich malt angles take you into even more enjoyment.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam decorates the clear mahogany, producing some lacing.
-The mouthfeel is silky and refined.
-The finish is surprisingly dryish considering the nature of the flavors evoked.
-Drinkability is very high.
-Like Helles, this is one that needs to be drunk fresh at the pub.

On tap at Spitalgarten.

olio (8203) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2014
50 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 02.03.2015.
Pours dark copper color with a small head. Bready aroma, some malts, mild fruity notes, hay and some nuts, distant berries too on the background. Malty flavor, slightly watery, dark fruit notes, some hay and distant sweet chocolate. Slick palate, soft carbonation. Nice but a bit watery.

the name is accurate, it tastes like a dunkel with added saliva. pretty dull but drinkable

lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 16, 2014
500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a copper colour with a small head. Aroma of sweet syrupy maltiness, some roastiness and grass. Flavour of toasted malts, syrup, grassy bitterness and some bread. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Smooth.

downender (7253) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2011
On tap at the brewery, 16/07/2011. Dark brown with a slight, off-white head. Big, toffee and berry fruit aroma. Flavour was also sweet, with more fruit and caramel, a hint of roastiness and dryish finish. Enjoyable.

KnutAlbert (6398) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 4, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Fairly typical of a Dunkel in the area, this has sweet malt, molasses and caramel. There is some bitterness in the finish, but it’s too sweet for my liking.
