Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2010 Apparently needs to be fresh.:

Bottle, 5.2%. Very buttery aroma. Clear dark brown colour. Small stable off-white head. The flavour is also quite buttery, seems a bit more malty and caramelly. Not so good, though. 2 3 3 3 3

Bottle, 5.2% bought at the brewery. Vinous, roasted aroma. Beautiful clear dark chestnut colour. Very small tan head. Good roasted flavour. Mildly nutty. Very well-balanced. 7 3 7 3 17

This is a bit roastier of a dunkel. It is called "Brotzeitbier" for whatever reason.

Christian (13930) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2013
RB Odense Early Summer Fun. Copper with a lasting off-white head. Malty aroma with toffee, bread and hay. Sweet malty flavour with toffee and cocoa, and nice herbal hops

Mariusz (12304) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - AUG 13, 2012
Aroma of dark caramel. Slightly sweet with a medium body and sticky mouth feel.

pivnizub (10910) - Bochum, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2005
Draught(at the Hofman’s): Dark amber coloured, medium sized off-white head; hoppy-grassy aroma with a tinge of grains; light bodied, only slight malty flavour; dry, bitter aftertaste; astonishingly dry and bitter for a beer of this colour; O.K. but not the best franconian beer........

cubs (10742) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Clear reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Rich caramel, nutty, quite toasty malty aroma. Toasty cracker, rich nutty, brown sugar, dark caramel malty flavor. Good stuff.

KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2010
Cloudy mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma had roasted malt, caramel and rye bread. Flavour had roasted malr, caramel rye bread and nuts. Finished sweet.

Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2011
Bottle at home. It’s dark, red-brown with a creamy head, and the aroma has notes of nuts, syrup, roasted malt and caramel. The sweet flavour has notes of roasted malt, caramel, nuts, light syrup, and the finish is dry with a light bitterness.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2007
(bottle) Clear, mahogany colour with almost no head. Sweet roast-malty nose with caramel. Sweet and slightly burnt bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a very flat to none carbonation. Roast-malty taste with caramel; sweet malt-accented finish with a roasted bitterness. Needs a re-rate because something obviously went wrong with the bottling.
