Bottle looks good, the beer in the glass also. Tastes mild-malty. Maltiness becomes stronger, smoky finish. Aftertaste like velvet. Good beer!

On draft at Straßenbahn. Clear, brown body with a rocky, off-white head. Lasting and lacy. Malt comes through big in the nose - big black sun tea presence. Some faint raisin notes. Bigger raisin in the flavor, actually all I can taste, but not in a bad way. Light-medium body. Malt forward with light, but balancing bittering hops. Avoids being cloying. Raisin lingers a bit with exhalation. Really quite like this beer!

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!
Das Dunkle ist im Glas nicht dunkel, sondern tiefschwarz! Der cremige Schaum verfliegt leider recht schnell. Geruchlich malzig röstig, minimal rauchig und zudem noch süß. Schon beim Geruch liegt eine große Aromenvielfalt vor. Der Antrunk fällt süßmalzig aus, der Nachgeschmack wird wesentlich röstiger und hat auch was rauchiges an sich. Das Bier entfaltet seine Aromen von Anfang bis Ende! Wirklich ein absolutes Spitzenbier, das zudem noch überaus süffig ausfällt!

Rating from 2005. Schön malzig-süffiges Dunkel. Leicht süßlich, kaum Herbe feststellbar. Dennoch lecker. --> 12

Thanks Ogi! Wow, beautiful, really beautiful dark ruby red with a big, thick, somewhat lasting off white-beige head. Bready/grainy malty aroma, sweetish, mild dog food. Then the taste is better than expected, the graininess actually has a roasty overtone with notes of dark chocolate. Tiny light slightly metallic herbal hoppy note, but it’s hidden well enough and the maltiness is just beautiful at times, even if dog food shows again. Medium body, ok for the strength. They might not impress at pale lagers, but my first encounter with their dark beers is a very pleasant surprise.

Pours out of the swing-top bottle in a unclear dark brown colour with steady head and medium body. Nose of malt and caramel. Taste of dark nuts, caramel, nuts, vanilla, barley and dull hops. Hints of barrel. Easy to drink, quaffable. Solid beer.

peponi (1862) - Hannover, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2014
Aroma: maltiness, roasted wheat. Apearance: nice dark brown color, beige head. Taste: roasted crust of bread, dark malts, medium bitterness (pharmaceutical), malty backbone. Palate: medium body, medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Nice dunkel with some accents of alt, but still nothing outstanding.

swing top bottle 500ml. -from Galeria Kaufhof Berlin am Alexanderplatz. Darker amber coloured, small to medium sized pale beige head, caramel and slight roasty nose. Mild roasted malt, caramel, light grainy and touch of chocolate with notes of herbs and sugar in the finish. Simple dunkel but quite good indeed.
