jonno (2290) - JAPAN - JUN 27, 2010
A really malt heavy dunkel. Lots of caramel and biscuit. A bit too heavy for me, but I could see it working well in the cooler months in Europe.

TheDog (523) - Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2010
On tap at Die Kleine Bierstube Århus. Dark amber colour with white head. Aroma and taste of caramel, hops, citrus, berrys and malts. Very nice balance sweet and bitter. A very nice dunkel for sure and very nice colour and apperance.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 On-tap. A - Deep copper amber color with an average to slightly below average sized head that is off-white, foamy, and a bit creamy. Decent retention with a nice lace left over. S - A good amount of toasted grainy malts and some caramel and toffee. T - A lot like the smell. A lot of toasted, grainy malt taste upfront make up the base. Also a good amount of caramel and toffee. Hints of some fruit, a bit of apple and some raisin. On the finish is just the slightest taste of some grassy and earthy hops along with some bread taste. M - Somewhere between light and medium body with moderate carbonation. Crisp taste and somewhat smooth. D - Easy to drink beer that is well balanced and has a good amount of malt flavors. Notes: Nice easy to drink beer that is a touch light on flavor and mouthfeel. Good session type of beer, and a solid beer from a very solid brewery.
