shoulderbroken (3520) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 11, 2012
Tap at the brewery. Dark brown colour, big gold head. Aroma is caramel, quite sweet, nice dark maltiness, bit of chocolate and something sharp. Taste is also initially sharp then settles down. Caramel sweetness, bit of chocolate milk, maybe kahlua. Nice enough.

Bottle from the brewery. Dark brown with a small, tan head. Milky, roasted malts aroma. Rich capuccino flavours with hints of chocolate. Good, though on the sweet side.

Served icy cold at the brewery. Tried to wait for it to warm up... Medium brown color. Yeasty aroma, with some caramel. Caramel flavor, with bitter hops, funky yeast. Slightly metallic, which chocolate. Ok malt—but this yeast overpowers it. Not too interesting. Disappointing.

larsga (7219) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 4, 2007
Biggish creamy beige head. Amber body. Meaty roasty coffee and caramel aroma. Sweet roasty caramel and coffee taste with grainy notes. Dry grainy aftertaste. A nice dunkel. (0.3l on tap.)

TimE (4881) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2006
Dark brown color. Sweet chcololate malt nose. Smooth, chocolately mouth, with hints of cherry cheescake and faint apples and oranges. Decent chocolatey malt finish. Nice. All these beers are much nicer on tap than in a bottle.

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - JUN 22, 2005
A medium Brown color with a small beige head. Nose is sweet malts with nutty/woody notes in the background. Slight malty sweetness with a lactic acid tartness to it. Follow is a bit tart, this seems to be the Japanese style for Dunkels. I’ve had several that have this odd acidic tartness to them.

Since the label says ’Munchener Dark’, perhaps this is a munich dunkel - I hear the Japanese are crazy about ’black beers’. This is above-average but tastes a little lacking in malt. This reminds me of Kostritzer Schwarzbier in its thinness. Good; not great.

I called this a brown ale originally rather than a stout or schwarzbier. Similar to other Japanese dark beers like Asahi Black. A little sweet. Overall, a good beer.
