Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 26, 2010
Best before Dec 14, 2010. Aroma of sweet fig along with some slightly roasted coffee and forest/wood/wet earth. Peppery, herbal hop in the aroma too, pretty substantial even. Something of a frothiness to the head; lingering lace. Much, much redder/rubier than the German dunkels I have been having. Looks nice. Flavor has some roastiness, more than in the Germans lately, and waaaay more than in the Polish dunkels! Nice little bit of hop spice in the flavor, of the grass and pepper variety. Overall good, but not mindblowing like some of the recent dunkels I’ve had.

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2010
bottle 50 cl. Large beige creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Mahogany color. Aroma of dusty grain, mild roasted malt, hint of floral hoppy notes. Mild liquorish, caramel amd roasted malt over the palate with some bitterness from the hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, light dry texture. Moderated bitter and sweet flaver well balanced. Light lingering roasted malty sweet finish.

KyotoLefty (5904) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 23, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 8, 2010 Draught at Svijansky Rytir in Prague. Sweet, creamy, chocolate and caramel aroma. Looks like a root beer float. Creamy flavor, chocolate and caramel, slightly burnt and earthy, with some minerals. Slightly watery at the end. Ok, rather average dunkel--missing something. Soft, silky body, very delicate. A nice drinker.
