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 (5656) - 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 (5542) - 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.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2007
On draught at Man in The Moon, Stockholm. Ruby brown colour, with good head. Caramelly and chocolatey in flavour with bit of Vienna-Style maltiness. Very smooth mouthfeel like all beers from this brewery. Low sweetness for a dunkel.

nuplastikk (5742) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 20, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2009 Deep brown colored, poured from a 16.9 oz bottle. Smooth and mild, with an understated but complex malt character. Not an overly sweet dunkel, more of a deep rich malt feast. Very pleasant beer, would love to have it on draft.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 15, 2007
Pours an extremely dark ruby with a tan head that rises and does not stick around long but leaves a thick lacing on the way down. Nose is almost like old wood. Like a cleaned out old attic. Dusty and void of life. A mild bit of malt character there, but not a whole lot. Flavor is smooth and even. Nothing real crazy going on here. Thin malt influence. Has the body, but not a lot of character to follow. Feel is standard. A bit thin really. Drinkable, sure. It is a decent brew. Nice to try. But no home run to run back to.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 8, 2007
Bottle. Pours ruby caramel, off white head. Aroma is caramel, molasses, toffee, ketchup, peat. Flavor is malt, caramel, wheat, toffee, grass, roasted nuts. Sweet and bitter.

Fin (9465) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2007
Bottle picked up from the Dodgy Deli’ Cowley Road Oxford, consumed outside my tent at Towersey Festival Poured Reddy brown with impressive beige bubbly head which quickly dissappeared. Nice aroma, some yeast but also very definate raosted overtones there and good bitter chocolate. Taste was sweet and malty but very good and with nice soft mouthfeel, bit nutty, even smokey but jolly decent.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2007
Clear dark brown with a bubbly tan head. Aroma of plum pudding fruits, gum tree bark, cocoa and caramel. Medium body with an outstandingly smooth carbonation. Flavours of light chocolate, caramel, raisins, slight oxidation and pine. Malty finish, a bit buttery too. Good stuff.
