thedm (6103) - 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.

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.

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 (5712) - 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 (8218) - 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.

PhillyBeer2112 (2810) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2007
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.

cheap (5747) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2008 Pretty classy label, black with gold fringes and red letters. Cerveza tells me it is from mexico but no, how naive, it is from Spain? Well I guess they speak Spanish down there in Mexico. 11.15 oz brown bottle. This is even less beer than the 11.2 oz Euro bottle!. Pours dark brown, very surprised, was expecting something like a pale lager. I didn’t see the Negra on it. Has a slight skunk aroma and that is it, no other complex smells in there. Quite a personality impact on the flavor burst. Yes yer typical dunkel, roastyness and malty flairs. I have not seen this by the case at my distributor. I am pleased at the taste. Seems to have more alcohol than is stated. It kind of sticks out at you. The finish is a bit too bitter malty/hoppy for me. Reminds me a little of mild stout or porter and it lingers for a while. This may make it not too much of a session beer. Good overall first impression. There are better dunkels out there but this is worth tasting.
