Medium brown with a small, persistent head. Malty, almost herbal aroma. Relatively mild but ’creamy’ taste. A little over roasted in the finish. Beautiful bottle. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Appearance: a clear, caramelly brown color, a solid, well-retained head.
Aroma: fruity and sweet.
Neat little hop appearance, quickly settling into the smooth and mellow. Light body, long, tasty finish.
Bright and lively flavor.
I struggle some over the style, is it a bock, a dunkel? No, a marzen?
Whatever it is, it’s light, smooth, and perfectly delicious.

Jubel pours a dark amber (rather than brown) with a slight head and mild effervesence. The aroma is malty with a slight fruity afterthought. The taste is malty, full, and rich, giving a pleasant mouthfeel. Good stuff. vanvenlo (1903) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - AUG 31, 2004

Pour is red-brown with a slight bubbly head. Nothing special. The aroma is just great. Fruit and yeasty bread are enticing. Very drinkable, Very enjoyable. I am really starting to like this style... Dunkel Rocks! Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUL 23, 2004
Faintly fruity/bready aroma, clear reddish-brown appearance with little head, and flavor of roasted malts and fruit -- very thin. The bottle kicks ass! Ungstrup (38145) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2004
A clear brown beer with a small beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel and so is the flavor, but the body is somewhat thin. Mads Langtved (2243) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2004

Reddish brown coloured. Malty aroma. Smooth malty flavour with roasty and sweet notes.
