Thomasalias (319) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 4, 2013
0,5l bottle from Czech Republic. Beautiful, clear, dark amber colored beer with medium, creamy, pillowy, light brown head. Rosated malty and a bit smoky aroma. It’s a bit like toast and butter. Some bitter-sour flavour also appears because of the hops. Medium bitter-sour taste. Creamy texture, medium body, lively carbonation. Bitter, toasty finish. Delicious, malty, bread-like dark lager, but the sour flavour desturbs a bit. Besides that, it’s a great dark lager.

brugmanneke (277) - GERMANY - JUN 23, 2012
(on tap) Dark brown, slightly hazy, head is brownis and stable. Aroma of roasted malts, metallic, malt beer. Nothing exciting or especially appealing. bittersweet taste. No aftertaste. Boring.

Argonian (248) - Athens, GREECE - SEP 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark, almost black body, with an average light brown head that stays until I finish my glass. Faint caramelish aroma, light sweet taste, notes of caramel. Soft carbonation, medium to full bodied, oily texture. Decent, but a little light, wanted it to be more flavoursome.

Firefly54 (222) - - NOV 30, 2011
Sweet aroma of caramel and dark maltiness. Mouthfeel is thin. Pretty boring flavour, there’s a cherry note in there which is nice but otherwise mediocre stuff.

Donatas (188) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - DEC 28, 2002
Dark color (brown to black). Fine aroma. Presence of bitterness. Unusual strengh (compare to Krusovice Cerne or Samson Tmavi). Another good dunkel from Czech Rep. I found this beer only in Liberec.

mixos (151) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - SEP 7, 2009
A really nice dunkel. Dark red-brown color with medium head. Aroma of malts, caramel,chocolate and some spicies. Taste is medium sweet that turns to spicy. Chocolate, malts, caramel and some hops in the background. Nice aftertaste, long lasting and spicy too. Nice body... nice palate.. nice beer at all...

muffel (130) - Lower Saxony, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2011
On tap at Baráčnická rychta in Prague. Clear, dark ruby color with an off-white head that leaves lacing. Pretty much no carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel. Aroma of malts, lots of caramel and also caramel in the aftertaste. Very enjoyable Dunkel.
