StuffWine (134) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2011
Bottle. Poured brown-red with a big light tan head. Aroma is a pleasant blend of malt, slightly-dark fruit, and sour dough(?). Taste is balance of light sweet/bitter/sour with lightly-toasted bread over it all. Very long clean bitter finish which surprised. The let down was the light/watery body slightly redeemed by soft tight carbonation. Please stop backing down on the flavour to appeal to the casual quoffers - could be so much more.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 13, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark brown with a smallish tan coloured head. Aromas are relatively sweet with lots of grainy malt coming through. Minimal hops in support. Flavours are likewise relatively sweet with a light bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel.

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2011
From the bottle, pours a dark brown with a nice off white creamy head. Some nice spiciness in the aromas with some bready/doughy undertones. Flavour is nicely sweet, malty and some caramel toastiness with a bit of bitter tanginess in the finish. Body is quite light.

Vaiz (3567) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2011
Tap @ de Paas, Den Haag. Clear amber to ebony pour, solid creamy off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, hazlenut and ash. Flavor is watery, caramellish sweet and nice roasted bitter. Good balance. Nice clean and drinkable brew.

crossovert (7909) - Illinois, USA - JUL 3, 2011
Half liter @ Weihenstephaner. This one is an amazing dunkel. It is sweet and malty, but not too much, the hops save it and it turns into an easy-drinker.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2011
Amber, rusty color. Very large bubbles in white head. Smells like an amber as well. Watery taste, weak, light body.

craftycarl21 (2254) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Tap at Weihenstephaner am Hackescher Markt in Berlin. Rich mahogany color with a nice frothy head. Aroma is subtle with caramel, walnut, and sweet bread tones. Flavor progresses from that sweet bread to a date and candied chestnut nuttiness, finishing with notes of plum and fig. Great massaging carbonation, medium body. Excellent German beer.

erickok (3796) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 20, 2011
Dark brown and small off white head; like a coke. Aroma is quite mild, with brown bread, tomato, cheese, malts. More a focus on drinkability but still enough flavour to satisfy. Pleasant balanced and underwhelming taste. Not a great amount of character yet a fine brew. Great quality for the price, too. (50cl bottle, 1,75 EUR)
