kappldav123 (6013) - GERMANY - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass very dark, nice head. Intense malty aroma. Starts very malty, with lots of caramel, modest sweet. Soft-malty finish, still wonderful caramel and chocolate notes. Great beer!

The head is robust, the body orange-brown. It smells grassy-hoppy, darkmalty, fresh and a bit smokey. The taste is malty, darkmalty, grassy-hoppy-smokey. Nice one! 11/12/13/13/11/12

Bottle. Deep amber with a thin head. Aroma of chocolate malt and nut. Flavour is toasted, crumbly chocolate with a roast background, dry bitterness on the palate

MartinT (9535) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This elegantly toasty lager is balanced out by herbal hops and their bitterness in a svelte mouthfeel. This is redolent of a Vienna more than a classic Dunkel.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A ring of foam circles the clear dark amber.
-Their toasted malt character is different from any other toasted malts I’ve had. Gives them a nice house personality in their Zwickl, Festbier and Dunkel.
-There are no roast notes at all. Even the toast character could be considered moderate.
-The herbal hops possess wet, nearly vegetal edges.
-This is barely darker than their Zwickl; they are obviously of the same lineage in the grain bill and hop profile as well.

On tap at the brewery restaurant.

Dedollewaitor (15724) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2011
Bottle @ Bamberg. Pours cloudy red amber with a small and stable creamy white head. Nose is yeast and caramel with a bit of tart fruit. Yeasty flavor with a grassy hoppy note a bit of bread , fruit and caramel. Quite hoppy dunkel. Medium and smooth body.

Koelschtrinker (18349) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 8, 2011
Sehr würzig, nach Röstmalz schmeckend und recht mild präsentiert sich das Dunkle. Leider nicht sehr CO2 haltig - schmeckt ein wenig abgestanden. Der Nachgeschmack ist sehr wässrig. Besser als das Weizen, aber keinesfalls gut! Test vom 8.7.2005, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,6,12,6,9,6 - 7,15

seritomi (360) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 26, 2011
A színe szép sötét borostyán. Habja sötétsárga gyorsan összeeső. Illata enyhe pörköl maláta, sütőtökös (ez mondjuk jó benne) aromával. Megkóstolva semmi érdekes: szénsavas, túlerjedt, vékonyka íz a rosszabb komlókat idézi. A Premium Pilsük után csalódás ez a "sötét". Felejthető...

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - DEC 21, 2010
500ml bottle from bierzwerg! Reddish brown in glass, medium-high and fine head. Smells malty and a little roasty. Starts strong roasted malt, good spicy. Finish too roasty, spicy, becoming more sweet!
