07/10/2010 - 33cl bottle @ home
Pours a clear dark brown beer with red glare. Fine white head, almost beige. Aroma has caramel, sweet malts, somewhat meaty, dark fruits, hops. Taste has roasted malts, some caramel, a little hop. Aftertaste has both coffee bitter from the roasted malts and hop bitters. Some spices. Pretty dry for a brown.
note: scores are given for the bottled version. The scores for the unfiltered beer are: Ar: 3/10, Ap: 4/5, T: 5/10, P: 4/5, O: 12, Total: 2.8 Conclusion: I like the unfiltered dark beer better than the bottled version. Only the smelly yeast is not so pleasant.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very dark, deep red and clear against the light. The head wasn’t very high, but dense and lasting.
Strong flavour with caramelly and fruity notes.
Very complex taste, with fruity, roasty, malty notes, some roasty bitterness, a little dryness. Very full-bodied.

Bottle (courtesy of ogivlado and doggythedog - thanks). Sweet chocolate and graham cracker malt aroma (like a McVitties chocolate covered digestive). Clear chestnut color with minimal head. Slightly sweet chocolate and graham cracker malt flavor with a lightly bitter grass hops finish. Very tasty - a great dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0,5 l bottle, trade with Doggythedog, thanks!
Brow-ruby colored beer with a nice foamy creamy tan head that diminishes a small lacing one and never disappeares. Sourish aroma with roasted grains, cocoa powder, yeasts, some dried fruits. Caramel and malt based flavor with caramel and roasted grainy taste, some yeast, minimal hop taste. Mild roasted aftertaste. Fine, easy drinkable one, i could slip it for hours in a local!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 bottle @ tolkien’s pub in zagreb. light nose of bread crust, minerallic with mild metal/glass flavors. a little too sweet, and the carbonation is fizzy, dissolves across the back of the palate, thins out. pretty simple dunkel, perhaps doesn’t survive well in green bottles.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
sweet malty, slightly hoppy, caramelly aroma. a little buttery.
clear dark brown, small yellow smooth head.
faint sour flavor, also caramel, faint roasted stuff. the sourness is okay, actually suits the beer a little, but i don’t think it is intended.
