Sorry for the german rating, but this is a lousy rating from my "newbie" time (2007-2009), and it’s not worth of being translated. I just added it for the statistics, and to complete my backlog!

Im Glas hat das Bier eine schöne tiefbraune Farbe. Der Geruch ist malzig süßlich. Der Antrunk ist angenehm röstig, im Abgang wird’s leicht süß. Der Mittelteil wird wesentlich röstiger und brotiger, die süße Note nimmt deutlich ab. Könnte insgesamt mehr Kohlensäure vertragen. Durchschnittliches Dunkles. Nix besonderes.
Bottled (thanks Timo A!). Deep nutbrown/amber colour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel, nutty, some dark fruityness as well as some slight toasted notes. Flavour is rather similar, but has a rather thin palate. Grzesiek79 (4364) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 22, 2012

Draught at the brauhausmile (4005) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2011
Amber color with chestnut shades; creamy head. The aroma has some light perfumy vanilla. Caramel flavor, little residual sweetness (just enough to smoother the body); quite strong bitterness. Easy.
Bottle. Dark amber, small to average and fully head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and dark bread. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and dark bread, faint roastiness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel. Caramel sweetish dunkel – nothing special.

Bottle. Red chestnut, big offwhite cream. Umami roast aroma. Roasty base, rye bread, rich herbal and grassy hoppiness which remains on the palate to counter. Fine sparkly mouthfeel, chewy, fullbodied. Intensive hoppy Dunkel. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Fresh, as always, from Wine of Dreams, Warszawa. Pours clear even after rocky walk, train and tram travel. Incredible copper color; this is not your average brown dunkel. The head is great; ecru, pock-marked, lovely. The aroma is mostly dry earth and aromatic noble hops, subtle, but very nice. The flavor is caramel sweetness minimally, but quite hoppy - out of style hoppy, I think, but I love it. Love it. Great beer for the end of the long travel and workday. Wagner is way underrated - or maybe I am just getting them super fresh. Perhaps a bit thin-bodied. Sweetens up a little at the close. Best before Nov 2010...

Orange-brown-copper beer with a good fluffy cream head. Very little aroma, malts, greenery. Good EU hops, fiery caramel, bitter finish. Medium bodied, bit sticky, certainly warming up. Bit "good dog" Dunkel, if certainly not bad. Danke, Jonas! Geiserich (4545) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 5, 2010
Bottle: Creamy, brownish head, chestnut brown color. Bready aroma, notes of candies and hazelnuts. Flavor is malty, medium sweet and quite caramelic. Roasty notes, dark chocolates and a metalic bitterness in the end. Tasty stuff. Dedollewaitor (16237) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2009
50cl bottle. Thanks Jan. Pours clear amber with a small egg white head. Nose is fruity and malty. Vague roast and bread. Medium and smooth palate. Taste has lots of grain and a slightly metallic feel.
