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 (7227) - 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 (25076) - 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 (1346) - 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.

highlandlad (1429) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2005
Good quaffing dunkel. Poured a plummy brown colour with a moderate, retreating head. Aroma smells like bed-time in England: strong tea and hot chocolate. Palate is medium-bodied. Sweetish middle with caramel notes, some resiny hops and an appetisingly bitter finish.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 13, 2005
Pours dark brownred with a disappearing off-white head. Mostly sweet rather heavy rye and malt aroma with spicy notes. Sweet flavor as well, notes of malt and grass with hints of spices and coffee. Little watery mouthfull. An all right dunkel!

caesar (5468) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 4, 2005
Clear brown color, medium off-white head. Aroma of malt and hop. Bit sweet malty and bitter taste. I expected more from this dunkel. It’s just mediocre.
