Aubrey (3508) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Dark brown and clear. Not the strongest head. A little watery at first, but carbonation and texture seemed to improve as I drank. Interesting aroma. Nice and roasty with sweet black licorice notes. Surprisingly refreshing and clean and rather easy to drink.

PorterPounder (6966) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 Rerate Cola brown appearance, slight off-white head. slight caramel aroma and matching taste. Smooth mouthfeel, decent. Original 3.5 Had this on draft at the Mellow Mushroom in Chattanooga. Has a pleasant malty aroma - ruby red dark appearance. Good malty flavor. Stays strong to the finish - has a good thick mouthfeel to it.

Kinz (3684) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 23, 2003
The beer looks better than it tastes. Beautiful clear chestnut brown. Small but persistent off-white head. Smells like caramel, with a hint of chocolate and a tang I can't quite place. Unremarkable mouthfeel. The taste is surprisingly bland, a faint bitterness from the roasted barley, quickly overcome by sweetness. Not as good as the Verum.

Shag (2768) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAY 23, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2004 Appearance is a darkish/red. Flavor is clean with a slight sourness and a distinctive yeastiness. Some bitterness but not very full bodied. This is not bad for a mass produced European beer.

hotstuff (4762) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2003
This brew poured a medium white head that was quick to dissolve. There was not a lot of lacing on the sides of my mug. It had a dark brown body. Bitterness was definintely noticed in this drink. I was not very impressed with this brew.

gws57 (1275) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2003
Dark like root beer, with a foamy pour. Very little aroma of any kind save malt. Taste of burned chocolate. Overrated.

Frank (3841) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2003
Dark brown, slightly translucent. Smallish, foamy head. Pretty good lacing. Malty, slightly grainy aroma, maybe a touch of cardboard. A bit watery on the palate. Some slight coffee notes. Clean finsih with a touch of hops.

thedm (5425) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a dark transparent brown body with a small head of white bubbles. It had a malty aroma as well as an initially bitter taste that lingered around for a while. Its lacing was good, but overall not one of the better Dunkels. Pass.

WabashMan (1023) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 14, 2003
It's been years since I had the Warsteiner Premium Verum, which I very much dislike, so I enter this beer with both hope and fairly low expectations. This beer starts off a fairly nice dark reddish amber with a quickly fading light tan head. The aroma is NOT impressive. Kind of a stinky mix of yeast and wheat...not overly pleasant. The flavor is alright. It's fairly thin and doesn't last on the tongue at all. Decent, though, while it lasts.

Medium brown color. Medium head. Aroma is malty. A medium bodied dunkel. Malts are slightly roasted and a touch chocolaty. Hops are mild spicy. Well balanced. Smooth. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
