jgb9348 (5797) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 1, 2009
Dark brown coloured body with a tan head and a bunch of bubbles. Bright aroma of roasted malt, pit fruits and a bit of earthiness. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavour complete with coffee and nuts, tucked in with sugars and some mild hops. Aftertastes nice and complex - definitely a good beer. Overall, worth trying if you can find it! I sampled this pint on draught at Ferdinanda in Praha, Ceska Republica in March 2008.

JPDIPSO (5795) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Chestnut to copper color with a small layer of tiny tan bubbles. Great color just not much head out of this bottle. Mild sweetened nut and hint of roasted malt in the aroma. Light mocha flavors with a touch of hops late in the quaff. A very unassuming and drinkable dunkle. I certainly could sit and drink this all evening. Very smooth on the palate.

(bottle) pours a dark ruby-brown colour with a frothy tan head. faint aroma of toasted malts with a hint of smoke and dark chocolate. flavour is the same, though more powerful, the roasted malts being especially dominant. medium body and carbonation with a nice roasted-bitter finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2005
This poured a reddish brown with medium carbonation and a slender tan head. The aroma is like that of wort in a brewhouse. The flavor is caramel malt with an odd mineral water kind of a finish that left a film on my tongue. My dunkel experiences are rarely good...

ClubGonzo (5532) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a near-brown red-hued body with a medium light beige foamy short-lived head. Nose is light roasty caramel tones with hints of cereals and raisins. Taste is straight malty tones with hints of caramel. A bit watery mouthfeel. Too simple to convince.

heemer77 (5308) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Pours a dark ruby color with a thin off white head. The aroma is hay and some bananas with nutmeg. The taste is a slightly sweet apricot with some grass and some light smoke. Also a little bit of roasted peanuts.The finish is a little dry for me. A fairly nice dunkel. Best by March 29, 2005.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2011
Draft @ Ferdinanda. Thick dark brown with thick thick tan head. Aroma is surprisingly spicy and enticing. The malts smell really dry and like there is caraway here. Soft palate but high carbonation. Slight sourness does not detract but would prefer it not to be there. But overall it’s a nice balanced brew. I especially appreciate how it’s spicy and dark and not sweet.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004
Even though I have been to the city of Benesov two times, this is my first beer from this brewery. Very dark red colour with creamy off-white head. Aroma is maltet with some roasted malts and hints of coffee. First flavors are mostly the roasted malts, but then there is also some sweetness. Palate is nice and solid, and the beers last impression is a dry bitterness.

Gurthnar (5142) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Le Senk. Aroma rather sweet, lots of caramel, dark caramel. Light Czech hops. Clear medium brown colour. Taste initially strong caramel sweetness, quickly balanced by roasted and DMS-like notes. Overall quite okay tmavy.
