COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From May 2006 Poured from 500ml bottle a very dark amber with a medium sized head of foam that dissipated quickly leaving just a fine layer with some lacing. The smell is a strong scent of roasted malt that suggests some sweetness is waiting for me in the taste. The taste up front is also of roasted malt, lots of it and there's lots of chocolate notes there as well making for some nice, sweet, yummy goodness that lasts all the way through the finish. Man, I could easily drink a couple of these...err....I have done that before. lol Bottom line: I've had this Dunkel many times before and I'm glad I've finally reviewed it. It's a winner that I can easily recommend cuz it's just so damn tasty!

Bottle from Brewers Droop, Bristol. Small, lightly off-white head, dark golden/ruby colour, clear. Aroma: malts, roasted bread, bit of berries. Lightly bitter with sort of dry/coffee aftertaste, but not too strong. Full body, average carbonation. Really nice, smooth, fantastic.

martpez (282) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2017
Wonderful amber red colour lovely texture too. Texture is a touch metallic with this bottle though. Some roasted malts coming through with very little in the way of a hoppy character except a mild dry finish at the end. Decent. Would like to try this on tap to get a better grasp of its character.
