Beerbarella (343) - - SEP 3, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours clear red-brown with a medium brownish head. Roasty aroma with chocolate notes. A rich roasty malt taste, not too sweet, with notes of ingredients I cannot put my finger on. Mild palate. A wonderful beer.

A big malty beer. Now we’re talking! This is a great beer because it tastes like a beer should taste: beer.

Oh what a lovely palette of flavors. Rich malt sweetness of dried fruit and a little burnt tones finishing with balanced bitterness.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2008
500ml bottle poured into a lager glass. WKBD smells like a slice of bakery Utopia. Soft brown bread, caramel and malt overwhelm a faint raisin aroma. The nose on this beer made my stomach grumble. This dunkel pours light brown without any trace of haze or pulp. the head is medium-sized, the color of linen and settles quickly. The taste! Wow! This is a huge surprise. I was not expecting to hit such a great beer with this one. Heavy rye bread and malt accompany faint chocolate hints. The light crisp body contrasts delightfully with the flavours found in typically heavier beers. This is a must-try and is easily available in the U.S. Some beers simply hit the spot and this is a classic example.

Bierkrug (2133) - - NOV 26, 2009
500 ML bottle in Germany. Dark brown nice partly see through color. Light brown head. Aroma is hard to pinpoint but a fastastic aroma, wonderful. A high class beer. Claims the oldest Dunkel of the world, might be, but it is one of the best for sure. The standard others are set. A wonderful flavor of many tastes. Again hard to say them all. I like this better than their Bock.
