Bottle. Reddish amber beer with a big beige head. Clean sweet malt aroma. Malty flavor, some spices, caramel, almost a touch of mint. Very clean. Starit forward caramel/malt beer. Good and clean. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2004
This is a dunkel? I didn’t know until I looked up the beer, but I had my suspicions while drinking it. Well, for a dunkel its not bad, but not great. Baltika is very cheap but good for the money I am finding Lubiere (13963) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 18, 2004
Hazy red brown beer with a nice thick off-white head. Sweet cocoa milk aroma with light hops in the end. Watery start, but nuttyness comes out well as flavours progress. A little metallic. Not bad overall. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Bottle. Pours a brown color with a nice off white head. Aroma is slightly malty, perhaps a bit of chocolate and fruit. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Taste is not all that exciting. Disappointing.

Nice bitterness. For me it is a typical winter beer......................... Radek Kliber (7369) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 4, 2004
Pours white short lived head .Cloudy dunkel? Clean bready, malty aroma. Flavours are very similar more of breads, malts. Rather simple brew but quit pleasant.Thanks Joey Capps ! Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - SEP 4, 2004
Disappearing head, clear amber body. Mild sweet malty and sugary aroma with fruit and caramel tones. Flavor is sweet malt and fruit with a slight citrusy underneath. Soft. ClarkVV (6757) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 1, 2004
2004 bottle. Pours a soft, rosy orange with some light peachy reds and a good yellowish beige head. Clear, unfortunately, but it adds to the clarity (I think dunkels look pretty good even when not bottle conditioned). Little aroma. Some light honey and a touch of brown sugar and caramel. Flavor is great though. Very tasty, light but even, mildly sweet, nutty flavor. Caramel and a nice subtle hint of hops mix well and it provides one of the more drinkable beers I’ve had in a while. Simple without being terribly boring. Mild hint of bitterness on the finish, which is otherwise clean and lightly cinnamon-like.

Hazy brown-amber. Creamy light beige head. Rich malty aroma of caramel, licorice, plums, & port. Medium, juicy feel. Very nice fruity (plums, raisins, cherries) & malty (caramel, molasses, licorice, dark bread) flavour w/ brandy/port edge. Has a xmas cake thing going on. Sweet finish.
