eczematic (1319) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - SEP 22, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2004 bright clear mahogany. nice looking beer. tastes like a watered down salvator - rich, sweet, nutty malt and not much else, maybe a bit of herbs. very simple and a bit boring by the end of the glass. not too caramelly which is a plus. needs more toast, or earth, or something. almost too pure.rer8: noticed more of a toasty hint this time. and a fair bit of hop flavour for a dunkel. this is a nice beer. nice full mouthfeel, clean, subtle, good stuff.

ALLOVATE (2383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 3, 2004
UPDATED: APR 19, 2006 Re-rate:- Haven’t had this one for a while, but I found myself up for a session and needed a decent lager to drink. This one came to mind immediately for afford-ability, drinkability and ofcourse reuse-ability of empty brown bottles. Poured into a Weihenstephan stein. Better, dense, rocky tan head formed than my first rate. Held on for the length and left some frosting. The body of beer a ruddy, deep brown and brilliantly clear. Doughy, slightly biscuity, cookie dough and roasted malts greet the nose. No hops. Lightly sweet upfront in the mouth, woody, deeper malts across the palate and drying towards the backwith some lightly roasted and toasted malts finishing it off. Light bodied for style and well charged in carbonation, but not as to hinder things. Not as filling in the stomach as I remember. Not bad, definitely hit the spot.
Yet another nice beer from the Weihenstephan brewery, and a good drop in general. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a tall stem glass, a short soapy tan head formed atop a clear cola brown body. Chocolate and toffee nose with a hint of toasted malt. Light bodied (oddly filling in the stomach) and light in carbonation. Sweet in the mouth, chocolate, toffee, with a balance of bitter roasted grain and burnt sugars in the back. No real hop definition, just a good malty Dunkel that went down a treat. Quite nice!!!

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 21, 2005
(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.
