Pours relatively clear, maroon red, with a medium off white head. Smells of toasted malts, caramel, and dark fruits. Kind of warm and roasty smelling. Nice flavor, sweet malts, caramel, a little roast. Slight bitterness was masked quite nicely by the sweetness. Balanced pretty well. The finish is sweet with a somewhat dry mouthfeel. The aftertaste is of caramel malts. Not a bad dunkel. thomahan (31) - DENMARK - JUL 17, 2007
A very well beer, lots of malty taste, maybe to sweet? Malty, bread, roasted chocolate, caramel. goozen (4071) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2007
Tap at Andechs near the Munich Dom 0.5ltr: Not so good as his Helles brother. Amber coloured beer with roasted malts taste. Dedollewaitor (16158) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 13, 2007
Amber color with a fast disappearing white head. Malty caramel aroma. Metallic & malty flavor. A lot of corn also. No lacings. Light to thin body. Not impressed! Beese (2740) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2007
Pours a copper colour, quite pale for a dunkel (at least in my expieriance). A sweet aroma but an almost salty, quite smokey flavour. Quite different from any other beer I’ve tried.

Bottled (thanks DerDoppelbock). Amberish brown colour with small beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, along with some fudge and fruits Flavour is roasted malts, some sweet candyish notes as well as a caramelly note in the background. gnoff (10336) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2007
(50 cl bottle) Clear brown color, tan head. Sweet malty scent, slightly fruity. Roasted malt and fruity taste. Medium mouthfeel and bitterness. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Nose is cocoa, dark fruits, rich caramel, kinda thomas-hardys esque. Flavor is cocoa & caramel, a hint of bitterness. auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - MAY 19, 2007
Bottle. Thanks for sharing Chris! Aroma percolate of soft, supple caramel and toaste german malts. Plenty of earthy sugars, yet subdued in a lager fashion. Sweet. Clear mahogany with gold edges and a rim of off-white. A well, attenuated dunkel, brimming with woody grain sugars, baked cookies, light chocolates and toothy candy. A bit of peaches, plums and sweet sheeting. There’s some sense of flavor reduction through heavy filtering. Skinnyviking (9570) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 15, 2007
Bottle. Small white head. Clear red brown body. Caramel honey aroma. Thin caramel hops flavor. Heavily carboneted. Short hops aftertaste.
