Sigmund (5604) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 4, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Pivni Galerie, Prague. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, large lasting off-white/beige head. Moderate malty aroma, notes of caramel and leather, maybe some dark fruits too. Low carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel, malty sweet with notes of molasses, minimal bitterness. Nice enough to drink, but I’d really like some more hops to balance the sweetness. Must be another beer for the target group "convalescents and nursing mothers".

Svesse (6843) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 11, 2011
(Draught at Svijansky Rytir, Prague, 27 July 2011) Very dark brown colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark bread, caramel and dried fruit. Malty, roasted taste with caramel, dark bread, rasins and a certain sweetness in a finish with a gentle bitterness. Medium body. Quite nice.

vipinvelp (2676) - 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 (1316) - 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.

Borresteijn (5235) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2012
50cl Bottle from Tesco Plzen. Deep dark brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt caramel, nuts, dusty cocoa. Flavour is light sweet, cocoa, roasted malts, light coffee, nuts, bitter burnt caramel finish. Light-bodied. Good dunkel imo.

FatPhil (10234) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2012
500ml bottle - shared by Marduk - thanks. Was 3 months past BB.
Nice soft roast, some chocolatiness to it. Fruity apple/orange retronasals. Very simple soft roast in the taste too.Finish has very dark burnt malt bitterness, with slightly metallic hints. Full and smooth palate, just gently sweet to keep it smooth, but not sugary at all. Carbonation is pleasant. Super easily drinkable dunkel, just what I like in a dark beer - would session this. Not showing signs of age at all, if anything the dryness might be aided by the age, and a positive thing.

rosenbergh (8245) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2012
500 ml bottle. BB 26/02/13. (Globus) Ústí nad Labem, Czech Republic.
Clear dark amber colour with small to average sized fluffy light tan head. Caramel and toffee sweetness, malt and mild diacetyl in aroma. Flavour is sweetish with dry hoppy twist. There’s liquorice, toffee, dry hops, malt and dark fruits in flavour. Rather balanced and interesting.

McTapps (5298) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2013
Dark brown-ruby colour with big and steady ehad and medium to smooth body. Nose of sour malt. Taste of dark nuts, dark bread, vanilla, torf, rich malt and caramel. Little bit too metallic finish, but otherwise really nice and easy to drink.
