wombat23 (623) - Texas, USA - AUG 28, 2016
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark brown with a cream-colored head. Aroma of malt and roast. Taste is dark bread, roasted malts, coffee, hazelnut, and chocolate notes. It definitely exceeded my expectations.

Rod_beer (34) - DF, MEXICO - AUG 7, 2016
Dark brown clear colour, medium tan head. Aroma has malts, chestnuts and wheatbread. Taste is sweet and sour, well balanced between both. Has a strong licorice sensation, aftertaste is strong on the bitter side, some hints of malt and molases. Light body, thin texture. Very strong for a 4.9% ABV, good with a steak.

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2016
500 ml can from Dunmore Liquor, served in a curved pint. Pours a reddish-cola shade with generous, fine, slow carbonation and a tan head that retreats to just a thin cap, leaving islands of lace. Aroma is primarily brown sugar-sweetened toasty malt with a buttery, cinnamony hint, fragrant red berries, and a faint herbal hop. Flavor-wise, the toasted malt surges forth, leaving the caramel sweetness in its wake, and hints of coffee, cocoa, charcoal, and smoke follow as the sip ends. The herbal hop hides among the roasted elements. Medium body, with a brief, pleasant lingering of the toastiness. This is a nice, soft, yet tasty dunkel that could serve as an introducing to darker beers like schwarzbier, imperial stouts, and the like.

NikkTwist (2673) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2016
Draft at Bru Craft. Clear very dark copper brown pour with a quickly diminishing foamy head. Aroma somewhat muted when cold but tastes like a (albeit a bit too shallow) proper German Dunkel. Gently dark toasted pale malts. Notes of bramble berry, sweet breads, liquorice, liver, pumpernickel, black plums, olives, ouzo, smoked meat. Great notes but none is strong enough to feel over the top. Not the best Dunkel but a truly great Dunkel.
