Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Pours a nutty brown boardering on amber when held up to the light, nice tan head. A nice roasted malt aroma. Bittersweet and smooth taste with a fruity finish.

bottle. medium colored brown ( I can see light through my glass ) with a nice looking tan head. commercial description is dead on! roasted malt, plums, toffee and just a hint of coffee. a very nice and well done dunkel.

SETANTA (582) - Bangor, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Very solid dunkel, but slightly astringent... almost sour. Not as malty as I would have liked after comparing it to the Kulmbacher

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2005
Bottled. Roastmalty, slightly coffeish with cocoa-like notes. Dry hop-bitter, roastmalty taste. Coffeish notes. Ends quite dry. Full body for the style with a smooth mouthfeel. Would love to have this on tap, as it is a little behind the best Czech dunkels I had fresh from tap. Great stuff.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - JUN 18, 2005
Poured a rich reddish-brown color producing a 1/2 inch thick head of rapidly dissipating foam. The aroma is incredible. The nose was of fresh, dark roasted malts with a hint of cocoa. The taste started with rich roasted malts, hazelnut and a hint of molasses. Hops come next nicely balancing the malt sweetness carring it through to the end. A subtle sting of espresso in the finish leave s you with the perfect mixture of sweetness and bitterness. The feel was light-medium bodied, yet creamy. This might be the best of the non-Doppelbock German beers I have sampled. This beer is fantastic and I strongly recomend this one.

Gmku (303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Deep beautiful mahogany pour and a dense light brown head of foam. Big aroma of malt and caramel, flavor’s all malt with a little hops. Almost syrupy sticky and sweet. Love it.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Pours a deep rich cherrywood color with a dense creamy light brown head. Smells of rich malt and caramel. Bready. Taste is the same as the nose. Bready and really malty. Some light finishing hops. Lightly sour. Rich caramel and fruity. Mouth is sweet and lightly sticky. Pretty tasty dunkel.

cvillebeer (134) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Pours a clear deep orange-red with a dense and lasting head. Aromas of malt, malt and more malt. The flavor is smooth, with almost a touch of sour-fruitiness but a distracting metallic flavor in the finish. We shall see if this dissipates as I continue. Smooth and "drinkable" which sometimes means uninteresting, but here this is a well made beer that aims for a smooth, dark malt experience. I don’t notice that metallic flavor anymore- what is that? I have noticed it in beers before and I don’t like it.
