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.

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 27, 2011
Mittelmalziger Antrunk. Würzig mittelintensiv, mit der Zeit süßer werdend. Dabei tief malzig bleibend, recht würzig, leicht hopfig-herb. Der Abgang ist etwas bananig und sehr malzig. Vollmundiges Bier! Test vom 27.8.2008, Gebinde: Fass Noten: 13,11,11,13,-,11 - 11,52

ogreface (1344) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 28, 2012
Český pivní festival, Praha. Egészen sötét, vörösesbarna színe van, amit egy közepes méretű, bézsszínű hab fed be elég kitartóan. Illata kissé kávés, karamellás, aszalt gyümölcsös és élesztős. Ízében érezni egy kis füstös, fás beütést és egy kevés medvecukros zamatot is. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, gyümölcsös és kissé égett. Kellemes és kiegyensúlyozott cseh barna, könnyen csúszik.

erickok (3415) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 5, 2012
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)

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.

Holmen2 (652) - NORWAY - JAN 16, 2014
Dark, reddish brown. Persisten off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt and prunes. Some cherry-like sourness in taste. Perhaps a bit thin mouthfeel.

KyotoLefty (6145) - 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.

vipinvelp (2048) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2012
Son in law brought this home. Nice dark beer, good colored foam head. Strong taste, not too sweet, nice bitter. Wonder of it need more cooling? Beer to remember and drink again.

inbirraveritas (1216) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2012
Tükrösen sötétbarna szín közepes méretű bézs habbal. Élesztős illatában karamell. Aromája aszalt gyümölcsösen fanyar, barna cukorral, kétszersülttel és füves komlóval. Befejezése keserédes és száraz, finom pörkölt malátával és fűszerekkel. Jól kiegyensúlyozott cseh barna a kevésbé édes fajtából.
