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. JK (6090) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2006 Black with a red tint. Thick khaki colored head that fades slowly. Some lacing, and a lasting layer of foam. It looks wonderful. Malt and caramel aroma. Flavor is heavy roasted malt and smoke with caramel as well. Full bodied and easy to drink. Outstanding dunkel, served on draught at Ferdinanda in Prague.

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. ClubGonzo (5668) - 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.

Poured a dark red body going black with a beige head that went away at a medium pace. Dry malty nose reminiscent of milk caramel, slightly roasty and sweet. Light roasty taste with notes of caramel, dry, not all that sweet for a Czech dunkel... maybe more coffeeish than chocolatey, but both descriptors are a bit stretched. Even some extremely weak notes of herbal hop floated in for a second once. It’s an ok dark beer that’s more a schwarzbier than a dunkel in my book but still not enough to care about it. All in all, a solid enough choice in a Czech supermarket.
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... heemer77 (5355) - 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. charlotte (5347) - rřdovre, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2011
Bottle.Dark brown colour with creamy beige head.Aroma is rosted and malty with taste of caramel and brown bread,sweet mouthfeels with hint of brown sugar and malt. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - 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.
