TBone (14175) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Bottle 500ml (from BZ)
Ruby-copper color, medium-sized white head. Aroma has caramel, grass and cocoa-like toastyness. Light-bodied, a bit too active carbonation for a dunkel. Caramalty with very light bitterness and brown sugar. Overall simple and even with watery palate.

GoufCustom (1072) - HONG KONG - FEB 5, 2015


500 ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.

Clear deep copper brown colour; One and a half finger head and crumpet ylight beige foam which last for about 2 minutes; Excellent sticky lacing and fizzy carbonation; Sweet aroma of dark malt, with light roastyness, rich cream, milk powder, strong sticky toffee, sweet caramel, sugar, coffee, light mustiness, light lemon and grass; Mid to light sweet taste of dark malt, with fairly strong rostyness, nuts, fairly strong caramel, strong molasses notes, light musty, very light coffee, lemon, moderate bitter hops and grass; Close to medium body, quite slick and thick palate; Mouth feel is finely roasted and quite rich dark malt, with lots of cashew-like nutty taste. Strong caramel and surprisingly low sweet unlike most Dunkels. Very little cream unlike the nose. Quite crisp without much biscuit taste. Good!... Hoppiness is light lemon and grass I nose and taste. Bitterness is moderate to low for an abrupt, grassy fairly low bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste. Easy and slightly bitter to mouth.

Comments: Its aroma is deceivingly creamy sweet and nice, and the taste, while it’s less sweet and less musty, is still pretty much a blue-collar Dunkel without being very standout. Solid all-round I have to say, and I wish they can build up a creamier and perhaps slightly hoppier palate to match the nose and looks. Still very enjoyable for my evening.

(bottle) clear deep ruby-amber colour with a frothy light-beige head. aroma of floral hops and pale malts, with a light hint of banana, some hay and treebark. flavour is mosly roasted malts and earth, with some light notes of sweet spices, bread dough and plums. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

bartlebier (2559) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JAN 9, 2015
50cl bottle bb04/2015, Maruhn. Sweet and slightly savoury aroma of fresh brownies and roasted almonds, some tree bark and honey pops. Really shines in taste: rustic bread crust with delicious milk chocolate (artisanal Nutella), cream and cocoa powder, coffee powder spice. Great balance and clear expression of clear, rustic flavours rarely to be had this side of bottom-fermented traditions, or any bottled Dunkel. If more regional Dunkels were like this and made more widely available, imported porter/stouts (recipes) would be given more of a run for their money.

Bottle. Clear red-brown color, small fast fading head. Aroma is tasty chocolate and coffee. Balanced sweet and bitter taste, hint sourness. Aftertaste nice roast malt with chocolate. Nice "Dunkles". Liked it.

ciocanelu (148) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
Light brown in color and pours crystal clear. Forms a foamy head that fades slowly. Roasted malts and bread in the aroma. Taste is very balanced, a bit sweet at first but leaves a dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium to light body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very balanced and enjoyable dunkel.

Beerhunter111 (10502) - Hasborn, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2014
Ins Glas ergießt sich ein dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer aber schönen Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht röstmalzig, Karamell, minimal würzig. Geschmack angenehm röstmalzig, würzig, gering schokoladig.

ElDesmadre (2279) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 5, 2013
Bottle. Very caramelly aroma, with lighter notes of chocolate and sweet pale malt. Flavourwise this one is also huge on caramel, with subtle notes of pale malt and nuts. Unexpectedly dry taste. Boring.
