Bottle from the cave. Aroma is roasty brown ale malts, pale lager malts and some grassy herbal hop character. Taste is similar not much in the way of chocolate malts, a nice dunkel, however reminds me of a lagered brown ale.

Beer5000 (5120) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2010 500ml bottle @ RBNAG’07. Body is clear mahogany with a dense beige head. Aroma is sweet malt with a hints of alcohol. Flavor is sweet and malty with caramel, quite sweet. Medium body. This beer is nice and well composed but I don’t fint it particular complex.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - DEC 25, 2007
A slight smoked aroma with touches of hazelnut. Taste is rich hazelnut, a slightly metallic twinge, and caramel/chocolate over a fizzy palate. Hops make a slight presence on the finish, but only to add a little more complexity. A decent, clean beer, but overall very average.

cgarvieuk (17632) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2007
bottle at home ... didnt live up to my hopes but ... Deep red brown ... Lager malt nose ... bit over fizzy ... little chocolate that builds ... but definite lageryness that ruins it for me.

Bottle. Brown colour. Slightly off-white head. Almost no carbonation. Malty aroma but a bit to bitter. On the overall not strong enough, too mild. My least favourite beer from this brewery.

Badgerben’s Cellar Reduction night. Brown color with dark fruits and burnt malt on the nose. Spicy yeast in the body. Very nice.

dpjuart (1094) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 20, 2007
23 oz. bomber. Pours a brown with a heavy dose of amber hues. Nice off-white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Nose is roasted carmel and a touch of nutty almond-like aroma. Tastes of roasted malt and heavy, sweet carmel. A hint of hops at the end, but this dunk is sweet. This is a very good dunkel. One of the better ones I’ve had. Very drinkable.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - NOV 7, 2007
50cl bottle at Kalmar Nation. Dark brown with a red tint and a creamy tan head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor leans heavily on malty sweetness, with low bitterness and hops. Rather simple flavors overall, and a clean body that is very full for the strength, with nice medium carbonation. Very similar in taste profile to the Asam Bock, but on a less intense, more sessionable level. I was missing some of the woodier and toastier flavors that I like in a dunkel, but a good beer regardless.

JK (5028) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Shared by Badgerben. This is one of the best dunkels I have had. The aroma and flavor is very full with roasted malt and caramel, almost like a full bodied bock. Heavy palate.

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2007
Sampled at Badgerben’s Cellar Reduction Night. Pours a reddish amber brew with a thick tan head that has good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, some chocolate, toffee and smoked peat. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of caramel, chocolate and a touch of toffee. Finish is smooth, slightly sweet with a slight toffee/malt aftertaste.
