eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2004 bright clear mahogany. nice looking beer. tastes like a watered down salvator - rich, sweet, nutty malt and not much else, maybe a bit of herbs. very simple and a bit boring by the end of the glass. not too caramelly which is a plus. needs more toast, or earth, or something. almost too pure.rer8: noticed more of a toasty hint this time. and a fair bit of hop flavour for a dunkel. this is a nice beer. nice full mouthfeel, clean, subtle, good stuff.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 16, 2004
Bottle. Toasty caramel aroma and flavour, some slight licorice and vegemite flavours (very slight), with a touch of brown sugar, slightly salty herbal, grassy hops in the finish, dry-ish, and pleasant to drink.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2004
Dark red color with big lasting beige head. Strong syrup, chocolate and in positive way bready aroma, nice one. After nice aroma thin mouthfeel is big disappointment. Roasted flavor, hops make ending dry. Carbonation bites nicely in tonque. Shame that this beer has such a watery palate, otherwise it could be excellent brew. Nice lace in glass.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2004
Great look in the glass with a deep copper hue and crisp head. When you hold it up to the light you get the pleasant burgundy glow of a good dunkel. the nose is quite nutty and sweet but not cloying. Not surprisingly the flavour is the same with a richness of body and subtleness of the hop profile. A very good beer overall and one that whould be consumed in the cool winter months we are experiencing downunder at the moment.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2004
Dark colour with good off white head. Aroma is very malty, and the flavor is made up by toffee and hints of coffee. Palate is nice.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2004
Very malty German dunkel - toffee, some chocolate and perhaps even some dark fruits (plums, prunes etc.). Lightly bitter finish.

Dry yeasty metallic aroma... Not to interesting taste.... Weak and watery finish

jfm (1724) - Holbćk, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2004
Deep chestnut color with a white or beige head. The taste is malty with notes of nuts and caramel. Nice sweet and wellbalanced palate. Finishes slightly weak and watery.

Good slightly tanned head. Sweet pale malty aroma. Dark brown colour with the shades of red. Watery palate with some hops. Carbonation bites when you swallow. Slightly bitter aftertaste, dry.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Very nice, dark red/amber color, small and tight, fully diminishing head. Strong, caramel-malty and very sweet, rye bread aroma. Lots of rye bread and some chocolate in the malty, bitter and smooth flavor. Rounded, roasted-malty and dry, although slightly carbonated, syrupy and bitter finish. Medium-bodied, syrupy palate. Nicely balanced, quite full-bodied, very enjoyable dunkel. Gets sweeter as it warms up.
