ElDesmadre (2976) - 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.

asheft (2897) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 2, 2005
Reddish-amber and clear with an eggshell coloured foam that clings to the glass. Weak aroma with some spicy melanoidin malt, apricot, and lemon. A bit of a toasty flavour combined with apricot and apple notes. Also some caramel and melanoidins in the flavour offset by noble (German?) hops. Mild bitterness. Light to medium body and moderate carbonation.

Süßlich-malziger geruch, schokoladig und aromatisch. Antrunk süßlich. Mitte hopfig-aromatisch im Verein mit Malz und Schokolade. Fruchtig-malziger Abgang, Birne. Endlich mal wieder ein gutes Dunkles.

Shaney (2424) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2012
#724 Ein mittelbraunes Bier mit schnell verschwundenem Schaum. Ausschließlich malzig im Aroma. Im Antrunk dann auch sehr malzig und einseitig geraten. Weder positiv noch negativ herausragend; langweilig trifft es am ehesten. Test vom 29.11.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,9,9,9,9 - 9,00

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2012
Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!
Im Glas steht ein rötlich orangebraunes Bier mit sehr viel Schaum, der lange hält. Der Geruch ist sehr süßmalzig, dezent röstig. Der Antrunk erfolgt süßmalzig karamellig. Insgesamt sehr mild, und es trinkt sich sehr angenehm. Der Abgang zeigt sich sehr brotig und karamellig, sehr süß insgesamt. Gut gelungenes Dunkles!

GoufCustom (1439) - 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.

GuideDogSaint (1028) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 20, 2014

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2009
Nose has roasting nuts, deep malt and some very light hops. Chocolate and malt immediately in the mouth, moving to some burnt hops and more malt kick deep in the palate. Surprisingly creamy feel and a finish that is not bitter but rather sticky and warm. Perfectly acceptable stuff!
