COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ein kräftiges, aber süffiges dunkles Landbier, dessen traditioneller Charakter durch seinen hohen Stammwürzegehalt von 12,6 % unterstrichen wird (Exportbier!). Gebraut nur mit dunklem Malz im aufwändigen Maischverfahren. Kräftig im Trunk, angemessene Bittere und ein angenehmes Röstaroma.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 24, 2010
UPDATED: APR 9, 2011 Smells of wood, earth and the usual bron sugars/caramel, but with a slight char to the proceedings. Some pencil shavings in the aroma. Great carb level, great body (if a tad thin), lasting head, lovely medium brown color with a little rust orange when there is not a lot of beer in the glass, super clear pour. Great loaves of sharp rye and dark wheat in the flavor, a little acidic, forest-like, a little hop spice (pepper, grass), brown sugar. Sharp, snazzy flavor and body. I guess one could complain slightly that the body and flavor combination is a tad watery, but to me this is just part of the charm of a solidly made and very east to drink beer. RERATE: Well, I’ve had this many times between October and April. Amazing beer in the variety of flavors - it has everything and is very fresh every time I get it.

Aroma is heavy on dark malts, with some graininess as well. The flavor is caramel, toffee, nuttiness and a smooth finish. No off flavors or harshness and a good flavor, this was a great dunkel.

ContemplateBeer (1496) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Had under the alias "Monk’s Christmas" at Holy Grale, Louisville. Real nice malt profile with caramel, raisins, pineapple and light chocolate, but without the overbearing chocolate/caramel of many Dunkels. Appearance was reddish cola brown with bone head. Flavor matched the nose, but with the wonderful toasty, nutty finish that I enjoy in so many German beers. Palate was soft and chewy. Fantastic beer.

Pours a hazy orange brown with a little head that doesn’t last too long. Smell is sweet malty and caramelly. Taste has a great malt flavor and a smooth sweet finish. Deliciously light brew. Good for any time.

GoufCustom (750) - HONG KONG - APR 11, 2014


500 ml bottle bought at foodGARDEN in D2 Place, Lai Chi Kok.

Looks: Clear deep amber ruby colour; One finger head and crumpety off-white foam which lasts for about 1 minute; Small sticky lacing and quite fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Fragrant and sweet roasted dark malt, with strong caramel and toffee, cream, sugar, light coffee, and thin lemony grass hops.

Taste: Medium-sweet lightly roasted malt, with nuts, light smokiness, sticky toffee, caramel, brown sugar, double cream, light coffee, light lime, grass, and moderate bitter hops.

Body: Close to light. Thin but sticky palate.

Mouth Feel: Dynamic and tensile! Moderately light roasted malt, not so ‘dark’, but with full nuttiness and some smokiness. The real strength lies on toffee and caramel - sticky, yummy, low sweet - that make things so lively and chop-licking. Beautiful! Also rich in cream, paired with some nice light coffee and brown sugar. Really comforting as well a taste-bug opener. Oh yes!

Hoppiness: Thin lemon and grass nose, light lime and notable grassy taste. Moderate light bitterness to compliment the light brown sugar for a creamy sticky sweet-bitter finish.

After Taste: Quite dry; Very easy and chewy to mouth.

Comments: Good Dunkels come in many different ways to please, and this one really sweeps my awful memories of mediocre German macro / micro dark lagers away. This is a traditional Bavarian Dunkel, well made, with nice aroma lively sticky toffee palate, modestly low sweetness and just-right hoppiness. Not only it is tasty, it basically changes my previously poor perception of this beer style, for the better. Highly recommended!

P.S. What a fine choice to celebrate my 600th ratings! :-)

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Deep nougat-hued bronze body, medium off-white head. Nose is coffee, nougat, deep smooth caramel tones, hints of malt extract and smoke far in the back. Pleasant. Taste is smokey deep malts, caramel, hints of nougat and burnt sugar. Prominent smokey tones, also in the aftertaste. This is really nice. Medium body, smooth carbonation with just enough drinkability to provide the goods. I liked this one a lot.

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Cask at NERAX. Pours a dark brown with a thin beige head. Huge hot malt aroma, with lots of heavy caramel and toffee. Flavour is similarly robust, with huge toasted malt, caramel and toffee taste. Virtually no hop character. Hot alcohol finish, smooth and full bodied. My second from the brewery, and both have been big, intense and delicious sweet beers.
