UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 An interesting dark lager, this beer is only the second example of "braunbier" I have sampled. Similar to Munich Dunkel but with a bit more sweet malt character. The first example of braunbier I tried was Klosterbrau braunbier that I sampled in Bamburg, Germany on draught. The Dithmarscher Dunkel I sampled, was a bottle sample purchased in Hanover, Germany. This beer pours to a beautiful, bright, deep mahogany color with a white head that eventually fades and a good bit of carbonation. This nose on this beer is fragrant with aromas of sweet malt and nuts. The palate is firm and round with lots of good sweet and nutty malt flavor, and a hints of toast. It finishes with more good sweet and nutty malt flavor up front, then ends with some herbal hop bitteness to balance, and lingers slightly cloying. A well done, malt accented dunkel. A good drinking beer, this beer would also work well with a number of German dishes, and would make a nice desert beer. Sigmund (8103) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2005
330 ml fliptop / swingtop bottle, bought in Germany. Copper coloured, large and lasting offwhite head, nice lacing. Pleasant malty, slightly roasty and caramel aroma, notes of rye bread, some aromatic hops too. Flavour is reasonably malty and slightly roasty, hints of smoke and caramel. Mouthfeel is a bit thin. Allegedly this is an authentic 16th century "Braunbier" - at any rate it is well worth sampling! Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Sqaut little 33cl swing top bottle pours with an amber body that has dark copper hues and supports a fairly tight tan to gray looking head of foam. The aroma offers up some roasted malts and nuttiness and then some sweet malts. The taste starts with some sweet malts heading into some roasted malts and nuttiness. It stays that way right into the finish. This works. jeverszeuge (647) - GERMANY - AUG 28, 2007
copper to amber colour, big, solid head. intense smell of bitter hops. malty and spicy start. later much bitter hops which give the beer the north-german touch. ends up with some more malt. Pinball (12642) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2011
clear amber, fluffy white head. Roasted malts, caramel, in the aroma. Flavor is malty, caramelly, flowery hoppy, dry.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2016 Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a big but fast-settling white head. A little cocoa and some dried dark fruit on the nose. plus a very faint hint of coffee. Toast and roast malt in the body, a burnt bitterness blending into a grassy slightly floral hoppiness. Long burnt caramel and dry hops finish. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2013
