3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

Deep brown, medium tan head. Toffee aroma. Terrific palate of roasted malt, definite nutty traits, very dry posterboard finish. Very nice.

(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

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.

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.

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.

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!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(on bottle, thx for the present, Jeppe) Strong sent of rum, fresh ryebread and heavy chocolate. Nice carbonation, but watery ´cause one expects so much more from that aroma. Has very dominant coffee and chocolate = malt-ntes indeed. Bit flat finish, but gain, this is just a dunkel, not a strong beer, just a good one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Dark amber with minor white head. Strong roasted malt with hints of syrup and caramel in aroma. Roasted malt and fruitish taste. Wellbalanced beer, but I’d like to se a bit more carbonation.
