Spanish import BB 02/03/07. Deep ruby pour with rocky cream suds. Sweet, darkly fruity snout. Figs and raisins. Roasted malt and licorice bitterness. A lick of Marmite. Not bad.

Looks clear and dark brown in the glass. Wide malty aroma with roastedness, also slightly sweet. Quite long aftertaste.

Stew41 (1854) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2007
Big active head early but settles quickly. Colour is a very clear light chocolate brown. Nose is an interesting and very balanced mix of roasts and chocolate. Good penetration. Less depth in the flavours when compared to the indications provided by the bouquet. Fizz palate dominates a little early, making the flavours hard to shine, although nutty coffee roast and hints of chocolate emerge in the middle and back palate. Shows plenty of balance. Very textbook and true to the genre.

anders37 (20883) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a longlasting off-white head. Malty bready caramel aroma. Sweet malty bready and slightly grainy flavor with hints of caramel. Sweet malty finish with some hints of caramel in the aftertaste.

harrisoni (16053) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2007
500ml bottle from Trafalgar Wines, Brighton. Deep reddy/russet colour with lasting thin beige head. Toffee, toasty aroma. Some butter. Goodish buttery toffee flavour, just a little lacking in body in the mouth. Good crisp finish. Buttery lime on the end. Interesting dunkel. Needs more fullness though, more deep malt. Tasty though.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2007
Definately one of the best dunkels I ever have tasted. Aroma of nutty sweetmalted ingredients. Flavor is fullbodied in the dunkelway and very malty, smooth, some weak smoke and indeed, for the style, a complex beer. I’ll buy it again!

Dedollewaitor (15096) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2007
Nut brown with fine lasting white head. Malty nose with notes of dark fruits & caramel. Lively carbonation. Hops are hard to trace. Bread & nut notes. Rather fresh. Filling body with a good lasting finish.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2007
UPDATED: APR 16, 2007 Bottle. Big lasting tan head over a crystal clear amber body. Good lacing. Not so evident, but alluring aromas of nutty, sweet toasted malts. Taste is much the same; malts, nuts, with slight toasted and caramelish flavors. No hops detected. Llight-bodied for the style. Rather thin palate. Short, watery finish.

eaglefan538 (2982) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - FEB 21, 2007
Poured a translucent brown-red color, nice off-white head, pretty solid lacing all the way down. The aroma was caramel and very light roasted notes. The flavor was caramel, bready, nuts, light chocolate notes, and a very light smoke/roast undertone. The mouthfeel was full, yet finishes dry, very well attenuated and balanced against a nice malt base. For a style that’s never impressed me, this beer was fantastic, perhaps the best dunkel I’ve ever had. Good stuff, solid numbers for its excellency in style!
