graziano85 (295) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 11, 2014
Dark rubin color with a big brown head, nice appearance. Smell is roasted malts, bread crust and caramel. Taste is similar, but weaker I would say, a bit too waterish, there is not much aftertaste. An average dunkel.

Bottle 500 ml, thanks to McTapps. Into a snifter, ABV 4.7% Deep red ruby colour on the body, head is one finger tall and tan in colour with very good retention. Light lacing on the glass Aroma is nutty with nice toffee and chocolate notes. Taste follows, nutty, light roasted malts, a bit of toffee with a nice bitterness on the finish and the aftertaste. Medium thin body, okay carbonation, nice dryness on the palate. Overall more than decent, very enjoyable.

Easily drinkable and great aromas and taste, especially considering the abv.

aguatsbia (1) - AUSTRIA - JAN 20, 2014 does not count
Kräftige dunkle Farbe, herber Antrunk, malzig dunkle Röstaromen, schöner Schaum, recht süffig da weniger Alkohol und weniger süß als viele andere dunkle Massenbiere, da hat man Lust auf mehr.

joeneugs (3120) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. It pours a very deep auburn color with an orange head. The aroma is very rich with fresh bread, molasses, raisins, pumpernickel and plum, very nice with the breadiness balancing the sweetness. The flavor is similarly rich yet with great balance between earthy, spicy hops, bready and lightly toasted malt background with the brown sugar, molasses and light notes of raisins. The finish is very dry and toasted. The mouthfeel is velvety and smooth. Superb Dunkel.

Moravius (407) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2014 Flasche. - Tiefes Kastanienbraun. - Antrunk kräftig röstmalzig, erinnert an Malzbonbons (Bayerisch Blockmalz). Noten von Nuß und Bitterschokolade, leichte dunkle Frucht. Karamelsüß aber nicht zu süß, mit einer angenehm pikant-säuerlichen Note zum Ausgleich. Samtiges, geradezu sahniges Mundgefühl, obwohl etwas dünn; enorm süffig. Im Abgang röstmalzbitter. Längerer bitterer Nachtrunk mit zarter pfeffriger Hopfennote. - Schönes Dunkles voller gefälliger, unkomplizierter Aromen.

ThiagoStorch (7) - BRAZIL - DEC 14, 2013 does not count
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Belo visual. Escura e borbulhante. Espuma boa e persistente, mas o aroma e o sabor nao chamam a atencao. Refrescante, mas a Anno 1050 vale mais a pena.

jann3 (96) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2013
Pours dark reddish brown with a big beige head. Sweetish and malty aroma with notes of caramel, bread and a hint of coffee. Taste is malty with a nice balancing touch of bitterness and a hint of smokiness. Soft carbonation and medium to full body. Slightly creamy texture. Tasteful and drinkable dunkel. (0,5 l bottle, best before 14.7.2014, poured in a Schott Zwiesel Bavaria -glass).
