Icedwarf (1219) - Etten-Leur, - JUL 26, 2014
Robijnrood bier met schuim. Smaak is rokig en licht bitter, caramel , met kers en braam ondertoon. Drinkt lekker weg en blijft lang hangen.

rozsoma (790) - Győr, HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2016
A következő nyakatekert okoskodást ötlöttem ki: olyan mint egy barokk esküvő, egy kis copf-fal (nem fru-fru) és rokokóval elegyítve, de még mindenképp a klasszicista jegyek nélkül.

SanfordBrewer (1478) - Sanford, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2016
hazy brown with creamy tan head. creamy full body with moderately high carbonation.

aroma: dark bread crust, coffee, cacao, stone, wood ash, earthy floral leafy hops.

taste: faint char and acidic notes from roasted grains, bready malt sweetness, dark bread, floral hops, same melanoidin-rich finish as the helles.

Not as quaffable by itself as the helles, but would most likely stand up better to the richness of most bavarian dishes.

MaBeer1972 (1791) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Pours out of the bottle a very nice looking deep brown. Frothy tan head settles to a thin lace. Wonderful rich and roasty flavors. Nicely balanced. Body is medium. Not too heavy and not too thin. A superb example of the style.

hershiser2 (2007) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle from market street wine shop uptown. Pours medium brown, clear, with an inch of reddish-tan head. Lightly smoked aroma with earth, cola, leaves. Flavor is roasted leaves, caramel, light dried grass. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hauxe (376) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JUL 2, 2016
Pours brown from the bottle with a foamy head that gently subsides into whispy, creamy lacing. Aroma is of german black bread and roasted caramel malt. A floral hint hovers in the background. Taste is sweet caramel, very smooth, and finishes with two contrasting notes. First is the bitter dark chocolate that rises to the foreground, and second is the hops driven sourness that unfolds on the swill. Both tastes compete with each other, but still maintain a pleasant harmony. Robust despite the low ABV, and yet refreshing as well. Well balanced. An excellent German "dunkles", one of the best of the style that I have tasted.

odannyob (130) - Colorado, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Poured from a nicely chilled pint & 0.9 oz. brown glass bottle into a dimpled mug and 1st impression is the dark, rich earthen color; not too much nose; but the taste has a deep chocolaty nuttiness. Overall, a supurb dark brew; VERY enjoyable.

mcberko (14016) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 26, 2016
On tap at PIB 2016, pours a hazy chestnut brown with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out toasted nuts, bready malt and restrained toasted caramel. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted nuts, bready malt and caramel. Solid enough and appropriate to style, just not overly interesting.

WhatDaddy (64) - Volos, GREECE - JUN 17, 2016
0,5lt bottle @ Valentin - Curious Bierkneipe Awsomeness with the oldest dark lager in the world. That wouldn’t mean much if the beer itself didn’t come up with greatness. Sweet caramel aroma slightly roasted, low-medium carbonation with a sweet and ligth bitter taste, making it very drinkable and enjoyable. Superior

Pretty good beer, very crisp. Medium body, low carbonation. (Good) Yeast flavours dominate the beer. Schroeder's SF. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
