hauxe (1100) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAY 27, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown/black with a creamy tan head. Minimal aroma. Smells weakly of roasted malt. Taste is rich roasted caramel malt with hints of dairy and nut. Uneventful finish.

Idiosynkrasie (8433) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 2, 2015
1000ml bottle. Opaque, darkest brown colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lastging, minimally lacing, off-white head. Roasty, dark malty aroma, hints of malt lozenge, some pumpernickel, a touch of organic hazelnut spread and burnt dregs at a coffeepot’s bottom. Taste is slightly roasty dark malty, moderate sweetness, hints of malt lozenge, cautious coffee flavour in residual form as described above; some watery passages.

Beerhunter111 (23987) - Beerland, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Sehr dunkel orange braunes Bier mit einer geringen beigen Schaumkrone. Geruch leicht karamellig, malzig. Geschmack karamellig, schokoladig, schwach hopfig, ok!

fiulijn (21559) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
Draught at the brauhaus
Dark mahogany color with creamy head. Light aroma of dark malts and some bread. Smooth mouthfeel, nice aroma of roasted malts, semi-dry, with correct bitterness; a touch o roasted nuts in the end.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2013
Tap at the brewpub. It’s slightly hazy red mahogany with a huge, creamy and long lasting head. The aroma has notes of licorice, dark syrup, caramel and roasted malt. The flavor has a moderate sweetness and notes of licorice, caramel, roasted malt, syrup, and the finish is rather dry and refreshing.

Wanja (772) - GERMANY - APR 24, 2013
1 l bottle from Brauhaus, Gießen... Nice dark clody color, good head.. Nice smookey malt and coffee aroma.. Mild sweet Dunkles taste... Average ending...

Moravius (1560) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 7, 2013
On tap at Gasthausbrauerei Alt-Giessen in Gießen. - Yeasty and a bit fruity. Some roasted malt. Finish is just a little bit bitter, with some rather unpleasant hop notes. - Still drinkable, but there are far better Dunkel beers around.

Gutifa (135) - Eisenharz, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2013
1l in growler at home, directly from the brauerei. Clean brown with a generous creamy head. Cara malts in aroma with some toffee and cocoa. More caramel in mouth, some cocoa and liquor.

BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - JAN 8, 2013
Dark brown colored beer with a beige head. Malty sweet caramel nose. Malty sweet flavors too. Also caramel, chocolate and coffee noticeable. Sweetish ending with notes of hoppy bitterness.

Koelschtrinker (22732) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - DEC 10, 2012
Malziger, süß röstiger Beginn. Etwas schokoladig, passend trocken, geringe Würzigkeit. Der Fokus ist eindeutig auf das Malz gerichtet, was angenehm erscheint. 10/9/10/10//10
