heavy (2388) - 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.

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.

Bierkrug (2130) - - JUL 3, 2011
500 ml bottle in Germany thanks to shrubber85. Pours a very dark red, almost black with a thick tan head that lasts. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and some smoke. Taste is very smooth throughout with a mild roastiness and hints of chocolate in the malt. Palate is a creamy texture with a well balanced finish. I enjoyed this one.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2011
Bottle sample courtesy of The Losh. Very dark oily pour lets in some light creating an ambery hue. Has a moderate beige cap. The nose is very roasty, and hints at coffee and vanilla, with some grassy hops. Sweet, but fairly balanced by floral bittering hops. Medium light body,Long bitter finish with musty like black coffee in the end. A good effort from this brewer.
