Dark ruby, creamy tanned head, lace. Roasted, slightly caramelly and skunked hoppy aroma. Roasted, oaky malts. Toffee flavors with grassy hops. Oily, slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite sweet for a dunkel, maybe more vienna-like.

Bottle, as Gösser Dark Beer. A dark copper colored beer with a small, dense, beige head. The aroma has a semi-pleasant blend of coffee and butterscotchy maltyness. Hints of dark chocolate too. The flavor has too much butterscotch and diacetyl, along with coffee, chocolate and caramel. Quite dry in the mouth, a bit sweetish sticky, and pleasantly carbonated. Medium body. Well, what can I say? It’s not bad, but it’s not my preferred choice of dunkel, and it doesn’t taste too good either. I think I’d go for an easier drinkable pale lager instead. 110523 Dedollewaitor (16170) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2010

Dark brown, slightly fizzy but no real head. Sweet chocolatey aroma. Fizzy in the mouth. The chocolate and sweetness carry over into the taste. Slightly watery and sweet. Slight blue cheese at the start of each mouthful . Nice burnt element, but could have been a lot better if brewed to a less kvassy strength. (5-3-7-2-10=2.7)
Dark red, small head. Dry husky grainy aroma. Very dry palate. Simple dark lager - drinkable, but too drying to be a thirst quencher. Mostly malt, bugger all hops.
Bottle, 4.5% in Rome. Weak caramel aroma. Mild bready flavour with a slightly roasted aftertaste and a hint of green apple. Clear dark brown colour. Unstable light brown head. Hint of sourness which does well to balance. bhensonb (15208) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 13, 2007
Bottle. Sweet dark aroma of roasted malt. Dark amber color with a significant beige/tan head. Thin to medium body with creamy carbonation. Starts with sweet roasted caramel, has just a hint of smokiness, somewhat nutty. It’s sweet, but a sour note creeps out. The finish is caramel, and there is only the slightest amount of bitter. It’s clean. Somehow there is a long result that’s tending to dryness, but then the malt comes back. Pretty good. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 16, 2008
