(Bottle 0,5l) Very light coffee and roasted malt aroma. Deep black color. Medium light brown head. Light sweet, light sour, light spicy taste. Light fizzy. Long light astringent finish. Too light beer for 6% ABV. A bit disappointment.

.5l from Marko. Pours deep brown cola with minimal head. Soft coffee and yogurt-fudge nose. Body is dry and sharp, a bit porter like. creamy chocolate and coffee. Overall a bit weak in body though the flavors are great and subtle. Very nice to try!

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2010 06/09/2010 - 20cl UNFILTERED beer @ Ličanka brewery thanks to the people at Ličanka for the reception in the brewery

Very cloudy rust brown beer, big rocky head. Aroma has yeasts, caramel, some mocha. Flat mouthfeeling (again: this is beer straight from the lager tank), medium body and somewhat creamy texture. Taste is malty yeast and coffee. Aftertaste has some caramel, yeast and a little mocha.

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.

dreamloomer (66) - Warsaw, POLAND - AUG 7, 2010
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.

shrubber85 (9628) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2010
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.

Bottle. Cola brown with a thin white head. Sweet malty notes of fruit syrup and chocolate. Flavour is candied fruit, chocolate and butter. Thin bodied. Low bitterness. Sweet cloying finish. The alcohol shows through as well.
