steinar (54) - rvk, - DEC 24, 2010
Pours rather black with a medium-large head. Light malty aroma with a cent of caramel. Tastes malty and sweet, not much bitterness to be found. finish is on the light sweet roasted side. Very light carbonation, light bodied and runs down smoothly. Overall a balanced and decent dunkel.

A nice crisp dunkel. Pretty quick finish. Light bodied slightly creamy. Toasted malts and caramel. Really nothing exceptional.

davidezdonz (58) - , HONG KONG - JUN 24, 2015
A 500ml bottle with a best before date of 2nd July 2015, bought in Bangkok, Thailand, carried back to Hong Kong and poured into a Duvel tulip glass. The beer poured a deep dark copper/amber brown with a slightly off white two finger head that dissipates over about a minute leaving some nice lacing. Light aromas of sweet and roasted malts, brown sugar and overripe plums. Tastewise, some bready roasted malts, dark fruits especially plum and also a hint of chocolate and caramel. As it warms, more grape and bubblegum appears in the flavour. Light bodied, light carbonation and smooth but seems a bit thin (watery). This went down easy but perhaps a tad bit ‘watery’. I prefer their Hefeweissbier Dunkel more.

inbirraveritas (1349) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 19, 2015
Bottled, 0.5 l. Clear reddish dark brown one with a fluffy beige head on its top. Mild malty nose. Tasteing starts crisp followed by mild sweet caramel and brown bread, texture is somewhat thin. Dry, toasty-herbal finish. Correct Dunkel brew.

Teran (168) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 8, 2015
Watery Dunkel, easy to drink. Clear copper, big tan top. Aroma schwarzbrot. Prety much installing a new style among Dunkels. Average carbonation, on the nose little bit artificial and metallic, but not in the taste. It could be difficult to find a big fan population for this kind of beer, because it is something new and modern, But it is still somehow well balanced beer.

donniemillan (91) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2015
It pours brown red, medium head (or low for a Weihenstephaner), mild sweet roast aroma. The taste reminds me of a black beer, not as sweet as other dunkels I’ve had, very easy to drink.

MichaelAwesome (5676) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2015
Malzig und fruchtig mit einer feinen Süffigkeit. Dahinter etwas Nuss und Karamell. Klassisch ausgewogen mit feiner Balance und mildem Abgang. Nicht schlecht.

McTapps (5716) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 8, 2015
The beer has got a deep dark brown colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of malt and dark bread. Taste of malt, roasted barley, mild hops, dark bread, mild fruits and nuts. Easy and smooth to drink, enjoyed it.
