This beer could be a hit with a "whip out your Einbecker" campaign. Pours black with a small tan head. Its a dark red when held up to the light. All malt in the nose, a touch of chocolate and toffee. Very smooth and crisp, just the slightest touch of roasted flavor in the aftertase. Hints of coffee. Hop bitterness in the corner of the mouth. Very nice. pojo41 (315) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle. Dark, copper colored pour with a slightly off-white head that lasted the whole way.
Aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor of slightly roasted malt with caramel and just a bit of dark fruit. Plum or raisin maybe?
Very light on the palate. A good easy drinking dunkel TrevorFloyd (309) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 2, 2006
My first Dunkel. Malty as expected, but not too sweet, more like toffee and raising than chocolate. Nice hop notes in there too, giving it some nice bitterness to keep you on your toes. Could be improved by making it more complex, but as is it is highly enjoyable. andyhite (308) - Murfreesboro, Tennessee, USA - MAR 26, 2008
330ml bottle. fluffy head and a deep thick maplewood hue. thin, smoky aroma, juicy dark berries, black cherries in the nose as well. on teh palate, juicy, fruity, and mildly sweet. the finish is slightly bitter, stone fruit flavors, and dr pepper like carbonation. ruskiimperial (308) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2010
This pours a dark brown with some light head which quickly dissipates. A dark malty aroma is present, though its not significant. Taste has a significant malty sweetness to it, with some light notes of coffee coming through on the aftertaste. I also get a lot of bread dough in this one. The carbonation is rather rough on the palate, taking away a good bit from making this beer easily drinkable.

The epitome of German dunkles. Solid full bodied crisp taste with a malty finish. Light fizzy creamy head. Mindwarp (280) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Pours a dark black with a thin tan head. Aroma of malt and a hint of chocolate. Taste follows the nose but it disappears quickly, not bad but watery. Oelbas (274) - DENMARK - AUG 2, 2014
Rødlig brun med et kortvarigt cremebrunt skum. Duften er præget af malt. Smagen er livlig med en karamelagtig sødme, der hurtigt overdøves af brændt malt. Eftersmagen er maltfyldig og får bitterhed både fra brændt malt og humle.
Smager nærmest som en sød version af en schwartzbier. darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - MAY 5, 2005
Delicious. Dark, slightly sweet, some fruitiness. As the description says, it is very mild, but found it very drinkable, with a good aftertaste. Although it is mild and a bit thin, overall a good dunkel. Very tasty. smooch (238) - Sylvania, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Very mild brew here; some malty flavor without being overly strong, roasted earthy dirt flavor, mouthfeel is very flat without any appreciable head after a few minutes.
