jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2007 Bottled, blind tasting session, re-rate: This beer might have changed or I was so wrong when I rated it last time. It’s a beautiful very much roasted malty Dunkel. I’d swear it’s a good German Bock during the tasting. Sweet, light bitter, toffee. Very good. Bottled, Dec ’03, 2.5: Cola and light chocolat aroma. Redish brown color, light brown head, fair lace. The start is cola and light roasted, but soon it gets more roasted and bitter. It finishes bitter roasted. Less than medium full body.

Choos (592) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2003
Aroma: Malty and slightly mocha with a hint of roastiness. Dark brown with a good head. Easy to drink caramel malt with some roastiness to it.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2003
Robust head on a cola-like liquid, looks great. Chocolate malt aroma. Light roasted malt flavour, but not strong enough. Also a bit thin.

jonas (5595) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 Roasted and slightly fruity nose. Dark brown, nice creamy head. Roasted and chocokolate flavors nicely rounded off by aromatic hops. Brilliant member of its style.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2003
Crystal clear brown-red colour with nice head and lacing down the glass. This beer is malt, malt, malt. The flavours really open up as the beer warms, with the dark, decocted malt flavour dominating. Hops are barely present. This is a delicious beer, and would almost be the perfect session beer. What lets it down in terms of a rating is that it is one-dimensional. Admittedly, that dimension is fantastic but this isn't the most challenging beer.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2003
Nice dark brown colour with a good head. The aroma is very malty. The flavour is malty and sweetish. A classic Dunkel.

Ungstrup (29135) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2003
The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with notes of roasted malt. The color is a deep red and it has a very beutiful off-white head. The flavor is very sweet and malty with a good palate - et ends on a slight bitterness, that lingers. A good Dunkel.
