good with german food.
Dark and sparkly, with a dark tan frothy head. Aromas of smoke, sourdough bread, caramel and malt. Flavor is full of rich hops, burnt toffee, chocolate, and herbs. Real nice smooth bitterness with good chewy dark malt character. Pleasant lingering finish, with an aftertaste of apples and strawberries. A very good, balanced brew.

Dark, dark red beer with a smooth and cool cut for a dunkel. There’s just a hint of nuttiness, but this is a excellent smooth drinker. Yummy. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 5, 2003
Pours a nice reddish copper with a TALL, firm, reddened head. Translucent body. Nose is European hops, malt, and caramel or toffee. There is a malt laden surprise awaiting your tongue with this. More caramel notes abound. Light hop presence. Crisp clean flavor and mouthfeel. Excellent dunkel! Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Incredibly pretty amber coloured beer with a creamy head that leaves a pretty lacework. Very soft and aromatic with plenty of roasted malt and malty sweetness. A wee perfumy touch and only a weak bitterness. Excellent. 150202

Bottle. Alternating sweet and dry aroma, caramel and roast malt with red berry. Grapey malt touches, but not as much as in a Bock. Beautiful murky brown / chestnut pour with a big lacing rocky tanned head. Nutty taste with red berry swirling. Medial sweetness balanced by faint bitterness. Really tasty and addictively quaffable. Mf is excellent – crisp and silken, light-medium body with a good dose of malt. Solid Dunkel! Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Nice brown color,small mildly lived head.Nice roasted malt aroma with a slight sweetness to it,faint hops and a mild spice as well.The taste was better then i thought it would be,malty semi-sweet with a nice caramel note,hops and a slight fruit presence of raisin mild chocolate,with a sweet malty after taste with just a hint of hopps.This is definately a nice brew and worth the 2.50 to get it.

Bottle from State Line. Pours hazy deep brown with 1-finger tan head. Aroma of heavy Wheaties, nuts, some tannins and brown sugar. Tastes richly malty, like a bowl of Wheaties, with some figs, nuts, ovaltine. Fairly dense palate, and not sweet. SpaceMonkey (182) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 26, 2002
A roasted toasty caramel malt aroma combines with a breaded doughy yeast to form an interesting, yet very distant, nose. A beige carpet of foam floats above a deep clear sea of homogeneous dark copper, almost burned to a brown, excellent color. The nugget like sweetness hits the mouth first, then segues into a rum and raisin tinged finish with a dash of bitter on the way out. I like this, although it is very understated.

Bottle. Translucent amber-mahogany in color with an ever-present foamy tan cap and corresponding wrung to serve as the head. Rubbery milk chocolate, mocha fudge brownies with live-in mocha beans, fudgey caramel chews and low-profile cocoa powder give a reserved aroma. Modest milk chocolate with a copper can storing dulled pecans leads to a bit of a flavor twang. Subtle, highly carbonated body gives credence to a spicier rendition. Mocha bean mash with chocolate cake powder continues the tradition. Substantive chewy toffee profile with a rounded out, dry milky cafe cooler feel to it. Mocha grinds, espresso dashes and wholesome milk chocolate cocoa mix wrap around the tongue for the finish.
