It pours with a light brown head, but has a whiff of skunky smell to it. Color is a dark reddish brown that reminds me of root beer. Taste is okay, nothing spectacular or overly noticeable.

Idiosynkrasie (6540) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
330ml bottle. Clear, dark brown colour with ruby red glimmer and small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white to beige head. Sweet-ish, dark malty aroma, hints of treacle and chocolate, light horse stable scent. Taste is slightly sweet dark malty, hints of treacle, dry, roasty dark malty counterpart, mildly grassy hoppy overtones.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2016 Nice appearance, but then butter, sour milk and caramel plus wet cardboard aroma. Taste also milky, some hops on finish do not save it. Not good at all.

WillemsUrenkel (1506) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 6, 2015
0,33 l bottle. Thanks a lot to Kristall-König! A darkest red brown, nearly black in the glass, small light tanned head. Low malty nose. Starts malty, decent sweetness, later more toasted malt. Longlasting aftertaste. Nice one.

Bottle at home. Amber brown pour. Aroma of dried fruit and malt. Simple but balanced flavor with fig, raisin, cola, roasty malt. Just slightly watery, but high drinkability. Quick, crisp, finish with no hop presence but not sweet either. Tasty enough.

ruigo (2396) - PORTUGAL - DEC 16, 2014
33cl bottle. Clear dark brown colour with a small slightly off-white head. Caramel, raisin and malt in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium to light body. Taste is a bit light but well balanced. Overall, a nice drinkable beer.

This seems like a decent dunkel but like so many German beers, it seems to have suffered on its trip over. It is brown in the glass, clear, w/ a small but long lasting head. Caramel and raisin notes from the malts are the centerpiece here but there is a good solid bit of bitterness which seems to bring out some chocolate. This is a full bodied brew w/ vigorous but soft carbonation. I don’t think my bottle was in perfect condition but this is still a good beer so pick one up if you are a fan of the style.

Definitely sweet, malty, dark. I guess good to sip if you want something different, but probably the only one I'll buy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BVery (9668) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from Binny’s in Schaumburg, IL. Dark cola-colored pour with a frothy light beige head. Doesn’t look particularly dense despite its dark color. Aroma is mild coffee grounds and sweet toffee. Palate is medium to lighter. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter on the finish. Not really my style.

Dark chestnut color, medium beige head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Coffee notes in malty taste. Minimal roasted bitterness. Good German beer.
