UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 This beer was actually better than I thought it would be. Poured to a dark brown with medium tan head that lasted well and left decent lacing. Aroma was a little faint, but I caught a combination of malty dark fruits and a hint of licorice. Flavor was a semi-sweet molasses. Body was a tad on the thin side, and mouthfeel was a little tingly. All this led to a finish that was of medium duration and a little warming. thedm (6310) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 1, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of frothy medium sized brown colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a softly carbonated dark ruby red brown colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was brown malt and sweet. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The weird flavor contained notes of malt and very weet. Too sweet and off the mark. Not one that I would likely drink again. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2007
Dark cherry body with a medium frothy light brown head. Aroma of molassas and dark malt. sweet molassas flavor, but slightly metallic. patrick767 (4115) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 28, 2007
bottle - Pours dark brown with a head. The aroma is mild caramel malts. The flavor is sweet caramel and maybe a little dark fruit. The body is thin to medium and the finish reveals a little hops. It’s not bad, though my expectations for dunkels are a little higher. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2007
Pours midnight brown w/ a medium, semi creamy froth that reduces to a few islands and lace. Aroma of malted stone fruit and dusty cocoa. Medium nectar w/ residual effers. Moderately roasted w/ sour cocoa and leather. Finish has a big bittered finish.

Bottle courtesy of patrick767. Thanks for sharing. Tan smalll head that mostly diminished, sparse lacing, no visible carbonation, semi-transparent, and a dark brown with a ruby tint for the hue. Nose was malty, roasty and some caramel and ditto for the flavor. Tingly mouthfeel. yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2007
33cl bottle. I only bought this to see if there was even one Spanish beer that was drinkable. Spanish beers I have had previously have all been poor to awful. This is a dunkel and I like the style but it’s a weak effort. Probably the best Spanish beer I have had, but still short of a quality dunkel. At least its drinkable. Thin, but has a bit of caramel and a slight roasty bitterness. Lightly smoky aftertaste. Just OK. SilkTork (5806) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A lightly caramel flavoured beer of modest character. Nothing offensive, and moderately pleasant. Faint bitterness in the finish. OK. nimbleprop (8723) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 12, 2007
Poured a slightly water black with a whispy white head. Smells of molasses and nuts. The flavor is a little strange considering the appearance. Very alcoholic flavor, almost like it was brewed in the same tanks as tequila. It’s that agave finish that made me throw this beer out. Sorry.

Yuck. Tastes like a regular old swill pale lager, very mild with a light funky sourness that is very off-putting. Cobwebby. The only hints that its a dunkel is a touch of caramel. This really should be called an ’american dark’, not a dunkel. Not even close. Regardless of style, its pretty bad.
