Bottle (Gasthaus Frey, Eichstätt):Clear, chestnut-amber coloured, medium-sized creamy off-white head; mild traces of toasted malt and coffee in the delicate caramelly nose; mild to moderate bitter-sweet flavour,light to medium bodied;slightly lingering coffeeish and malty finish. Quite O.K.…

Trinkbares, recht dunkelfruchtiges Piwo mit einer milden Malznote und annehmbarer Süffigkeit. Im Grunde eins wie viele andere auch, aber dabei durchaus zufriedenstellend.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of bread and wheat. Taste of dark grains, bread, malt, straw, plums and raisins. Easy to drink yet nothing special.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2013
It’s dark brown with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of caramel, roasted malt and light nuts. The flavor has a light to moderate sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, and a little nuts and milk chocolate towards the slightly dry finish!

Pours an orangish brown color with a nice tan head. The aroma is toasted malt, caramel. The taste is Caramel, bread with a slightly dry and fruity finish. The body is light/medium with active yet smooth carbonation. Overall a very nice dunkel.

Idiosynkrasie (6180) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear brown colour with average, frothy, minimally lacing, tan head. Minimally sweet, slightly grainy, dark malty aroma with a touch of hay. Taste is dark malty, minimally grassy hop overtones, very subtle sweetness. A bit watery. fizzy carbonation.

stevoj (3772) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Hmmmm...finally discovered an average German dunkel. Not much in the flavor department, barely any hints of the nuttiness or roast grains this style is usually noted for. Falls flat on the tongue ...almost watery. After enjoying their Festmarzen so much, this one was a little disappointing. With so many good examples of this style, this one leaves a lot to be desired.

bierkoning (12185) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown color. Caramel in the vegetable-like aroma. malty caramelly sweetish flavor. Not an entirely clean mouthfeel. Bready.

#1251 Das Dunkel schaut gut aus: Kastanie mit feiner Crema. Das Aroma ist erstaunlich blass und nichtssagend malzig. Trotz der immerhin 5,5% Alk. relativ nahe am Wasser gebraut. Der Geschmack ist minimal rezent, vom Röstmalz schmeckt der geneigte Biertester allerdings kaum etwas. Wässrig, leicht malzig, kaum Hopfen: Plätschert belanglos die Kehle hinunter. Nicht der Bringer!
