ignificant carbonation at Ludwig’s in Philly. Dry with a touch of lime sourness.Burnt roast malts, some chocolate but also syrupy sweetness, medium mouthfeel from nuts, cigar tabacco beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Root beer brown with a slight reddish transfer. Thin sandy brown sponged cap with specklies. Keeps a thin residued foam. Adequate lacing thickly trickles the glass in webbings.
Distant aroma of Nestle Crunch bar.
Tastes of mild chocolate malt with a firm, fluffy bready inside. Very smallish hints to almond, hazelnut, vanilla, and fruits. If the bready tone and chocolate character were a bit longer lasting and bolder it would be sublime. Its overall creamyness and clean profile do ensue a favorable palate gracing soothingness that I am enjoying.
Feel is about medium, a tinge empty and light in places but picks up some bolder breadyness and heft as it leans into the finish. Nicely done and cleanly smooth fluffy bready chocolate mildly places itself the whole way through and nothing to off about it. Goes down way easy. Perhaps this is a fresher batch that just came in or something cuz this is pretty desent stuff.
Its not a brute on the flavors, but whats there is a subtle chocolate breadyness mildly peaking interest to keep going towards fillin’ another glass. Perhaps I’m being a bit more gracious with my numbers here, but I do like what I’m getting out of this, so up they go. Fine, fine stuff. Silphium (3224) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - APR 11, 2005
Deep red-brown, medium creamy off-white head. Sweet cerealy aroma of the unfermented malt syrup type, also quite similar to a bowl of Wheat Chex with sugar. There are malt sodas at import stores that smell exactly like this, too. The flavor is much thinner, again with the sweet cereal grain composition, finishing thin and a bit tart. Not too bad, but the promise of the aroma was not met by the flavor. gulf690 (21) - AUSTRALIA - APR 3, 2005
Bottle. Reddy brown, with a fine, thin head. Sweet, spicy nose which, though light, was enticing and promised something wonderful. The palate was a little on the light side (call it nondescript if you like), nothing at all that stood out. The body was comatose. The promise, sadly, was broken…. dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2005
Dark brown with big red highlights. Small but tight, light brown head. Sweet amlty aroma with some mustiness and hop present. Musty flavour also, with a very dry, roast malt, bitter finish. A bit average really.

The bottle said Gösser Stiftsbräu 4.2%. but I was send here. Golden brown colour with a off-white head. Sweet light roasted malty aroma and taste. Medium body and a sweet finish. sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 24, 2005
(Bottled) Very dark reddish brown color with a medium, foamy and tanned head. Chocolatey, burned-malty aroma with caramel. Roasted-malty flavor with some fruitiness, ashy finish, and a lingering, mildly syrupy-sweet aftertaste. Medium-bodied, quite thick and smooth-carbonated palate. A reasonably interesting, drinkable and well-balanced dunkel. Ronny (100) - Arlöv, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2005
Sweet roasted caramell aroma
A little too sweet , like syrup, not much or bitterness Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 26, 2005
Pours dark brown with a lasting off white head. Has a nice malty flavor. A very nice Dunkel to drink at the local pub. KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Dunkel Lite, perhaps? Nonetheless, this is a solid yet subtle example of the Dunkel style. Very drinkable- slight molasses in the finish with a light carbonated mouthfeel throughout. A good session Dunkel, if there ever was one. Recommended.
