Clear very nice dark red color, semi-fluffy off-white head. A bit grainy and acidic, malty and bread like, mild sweet scent. Slight bit acidic and metallic, red berries, sweet sort of thin taste. Rather thin mouthfeel, grainy aftertaste, low bitterenss.
Sampled from 0.33 l bottle from 'EDEKA Preller' (Breckerfeld), best before May 2018. Clear, dark deep ruby with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, slightly grassy-spicy and minimally roasty aroma of caramel, straw and some nuts. Moderately sweet, slightly bitter, slightly grassy-spicy and a bit roasty taste of caramel, straw and toasted nuts, followed by a short, moderately bitter, slightly roasty, quite grassy-spicy and a bit metallic finish. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite okay, not the most outspoken Dunkel though. Schlumpfhunter (241) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2017
Schaum: dicht ordentlich, reduziert sich dann auf eine dünne Schicht.
Nase: nicht viel, leicht gebrannt malzig. Erinnert ein bisschen an Cola
Geschmack: schaumig und hinten rund. Gute Balance mit dem Bitteren. Im Abgang auch das Röstmalz, kaum bitter. Gut wenn auch nicht hervorstechend geschmackvoll. Kampfar (298) - Osnabrück, GERMANY - MAY 26, 2017

0,33 l bottle. Clear dark red brown, nearly two finger light beige head. Low malty with some sweetness on the nose. Taste starts more like sweet smooth Pilsner. No real roasted malt. Later some metallic hints. Okay. NallePalle (746) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle, 33 cl. Decent dunkel, clear features of coffee. Went well with pasta and prawns. Gangstergafje (1412) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016
The beer looks very nice. The color of the beer is reddish brown. The beer is quite clear. On top a nice layer of off-white foam is formed. The foam collapses quickly. A very minimal drape is left after a while.
The smell is nice. There are a lot of malty aromas. There is also a nice smokey touch to it. I also smell some spices, like cinnamon. It is a rather rich malty smell. I miss the hops a little bit, but it suits the beer.
The taste is pretty much the same. It is very malty. There is a tiny touch of roasted barley and a minimal touch of cinnamon. The taste is not extremely special, but it is nice. Nice German product. Geiserich (4725) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 26, 2016
Bottle: Aroma is malty, light roasty. Dark brown or dark bronze color, small head. Flavor is malty, few sweet, caramelic, roasty. Easy drinkable Dunkles.
