yngwie (13399) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2006
Bottled. Reddish-brown beer with an ok beige head. Nice carbonation. Sweet malty and roasted aroma with some beef stock. Flavor is light, sweet malty and roasted. Sweet, medium body. The beer feels too thin, but is pleasant anyway. (060224)

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Pours a deep brown with a light brown head. Smells breddy and nutty. Taste is nutty with some mellow fruit and bananas. Where are all the great tastes associated with this style?

KnutAlbert (6067) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2005
The label states that this is brewed for them by Hofbräu München. A sweet, nutty beer with a pleasant hoppy finish, but not outstanding in any way.

winkle (476) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2005
Bottled: Tried this at the local Octoberfest. Remember this as being a pretty decent malty beer with an enticing aroma, unfortunately my detailed notes on it are rendered unreadable due to spillage- thanks guys- other than the scoring.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2005
Clear dark brown with a small and transient head. The aroma is all blackcurrants and rye. Ribena and pumpernickel!! I managed to also find some nuts and sweet malt after tasting. A little bit on the sweet side, it has a pleasant lingering finish that left me satisfied.

DuffMan (6670) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 4, 2005
Deep brown, medium tan head. Toffee aroma. Terrific palate of roasted malt, definite nutty traits, very dry posterboard finish. Very nice.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Dark brown beer with an orange-red tone and a small, discreet head. Very pronounced roasted and almost caramel character which is well balanced by a good, dry bitterness. Very nice Dunkel. 260504

vanvenlo (1225) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 3, 2006 14 Feb 2005 (Rerated 10 Apr 2006)- Burnt fruit light sweet malt hop aroma. Dark brown-ruby colour, gooda head and suds lacing. Slight smokiness and sweet malt and hop flavour. Easy drinking but a bit thin and a tangy smokey bitterness.

ashbeero (51) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2005
Dark red beer with a great off white head. Strong dark malt aroma with no obvious hops. Very roasted malt flvour and relatively sweet. Chocolate and caramel notes. Not like any beer style brewed here in Australia. Nice palate with a moderate bitter lingering finish.
