Reid (2317) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2003
On tap at Gustav's Restaurant, Clackamas, Oregon. Beer looks like a glass of black coffee with a tan head..by "black coffee" i dont really mean completely black..but a mahogany brown colour. Smell was quite subdued..slight chocolaty style malts but not much. Very thin and watery tatslessness..poor carbonation..flat horrid. Thin and wat too watery on the tongue. Not very drinkable at all..i wonder if there was some problem with the keg?

Average beer. Quick diminishing head, leaving very little lace. Dark amber/ caramel tone. First sips were the best, dimishing to a watery taste (despite the color). Ehh.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Dark cola color to this no headed beer. Smells like water and malt. This really isn't a very good beer. The taste is slightly bitter and hardly that, caramel, water. Not a great dark beer at all. If Warsteiner is the Bud Light of Germany, the Dunkel must be the Amber Bock. Unimpressive beer to say the least. Germany has so much more to offer. Wow, tangy (sarcasm).

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2003
Dark caramel color with a creamy head formation and a malty aroma. The taste is slightly nutty, with hints of caramel, a touch of chocolate, and fresh malts. Nicely balanced finish with a subtle touch of hops.

Subtle sweetness in the aroma and carries through this brew. Finishes to the sweet side. The verdict is still out on this one.

Veldy (65) - Coon Rapids, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2003
I had this on tap from Old Chicago over the Oktoberfest celebration. I was quite impressed with this beer. Although not "quite" as malty as I expected, it was very good. The malt was balanced nicely by the hop bitterness, with little hop aroma. The body was just a little bit light. Overall, a very drinkable beer.

Small beige head atop clear mahogany body. Aroma is sweet, nutty, and caramel. Taste is caramel, nutty, mediuim sweet. Medium body.

ElGaucho (2391) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Draught at Old Chicago. Unsweetened molasses aroma at first whiff. Some sweetness emerges at second whiff. Clear dark reddigh brown in color. Small, off-white head that mostly diminishes. Not much lace. This is a maltfest. Significant alcoholic mouthfeel which is somewhat surprising given only 4.9% ABV. No bitterness whatsoever, although I suppose one shouldn't expect any from a German Dunkel. Not much sweetness making this a bit boring and one-dimensional.

Dorwart (2533) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - OCT 28, 2003
Decent head that is creamy on top. Nice lacing. Aroma is a little earthy with some roasted malts. Color is a nice dark brown. Flavor is a little bland but refreshing for a dark beer with some more malts. Finish leaves a slight metallic aftertaste but is smooth. An ok dunkel but nothing special.
