angelkostvo (556) - CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 13, 2012
Color is dark with red nuance as you would expect from a dunkel and it has a small head that stays. Aroma of caramel, smoke, plums, some wet wood may be. Taste is balanced, sweet with dry finish. On of the best Czech dunkels I had.

Deep brown body and light tan head. Cacao, pecan nuts, wholewheat bread. Quite smooth, nice mouth feel. Light sweet and roasted. Good balance, none of the expected factory taste. Body is even a bit fatty. Well made, good brewer. (50cl bottle)

EchoShine (32) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 8, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2012 I don’t know why not give it perfect score based on its class alone. I drink many Czech beers and this by far is the most fresh tasting, fun on complexity (smoke, little dark pepper corn, dark chocolate roastyness....... little woody with a really nice tan head that doesn’t dissipate quick at all and stays around floating on the medium fresh body. Label is really fitting for this beer! update: Still drinking this beer. Even got a box out of exp. as of July 5th. Today is August 16th. It just keeps marching on. Note to people prone to heartburn..... that I think the ingredients here are fresh not to easily sting you. Amazing finish and aftertastes. Even on the last finger on a wide lager glass the characteristics still shine full on.. give it a shake. if anybody wants any, contact me.

hetyu (115) - HUNGARY - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle - Rally nice dunkel in colour, thin, quickly disappearing head. Taste comes with coffee bitterness, some sweetness and the roasted malt is like a wood. There is a note of banana as well. Raally nice one!

heavy (2116) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 26, 2012
28/03 0.5 l bottle brought from Czech Rep. 5.2%. It poured reddish brown body with medium sized head. Sweet malty aroma, some sweet sugar, caramel and hay in the background. Sweetish flavor as well, caramel with some herbal and coffee bitterness. Fuller in body with pleasant and long cloying finish. Nice, tasty and full bodied dunkel.

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
