Thin slightly yellowish head. Very dark brown nody with a deep red when held up to the light. The aroma is typical for the style with some bubblegum and corn. Also hints of roasted nuts. The mouthfeel is medium and slick. this has some roasted notes along with pears. There are definitely cherries in the aftertaste. A little too sweet. A very solid dunkel. jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 9, 2005
One of my favorite beers to order, when a bar has it. I like the way this one looks, tasteas, and feels. Not the best dunkel out there, but a good standy. highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2005
Meek Austrian dunkel. Might make a decent dessert beer paired with, say, fruit cake. It poured a deep mahogany with a large head and good lacing. Rich aromas of treacle, chocolate and malt. The palate is dry, firm and nutty. Some chocolate notes. It’s a fair dunkel but there are far better out there. (Bottle) HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2005
Pours a medium brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a grainy German scent with hints of dark fruit. Flavor is mostly nutty with a slight dark malt flavor that I wanted more of. Seems lacking of a dark dunkel flavor. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Bottle pours deep brown, hues of mahogany, large frothy off-white head, with clingy lacing. Aroma of grainy malts, green tea, tobacco, and soft coffee beans. Good toasted malt flavor up front, slightly nutty. Decent body and mouthfeel. Finishes fairly clean, smooth toasted malt taste. Simple, but not bad at all!

Dark, little shining color. Compact and enough adherent foam. Much bitter. beastdog75 (364) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - NOV 22, 2004
This is a pretty solid dunkel lager. Nice malty presence with notes of molasses and a bit of nuttiness. A bit on the sweet side (not much hop bitterness to balance things out). Smooth and easy to drink. Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2004
Much better than the regular Gosser, yet nothing compared to the real munich dunkels found in bavaria. Slight harshness towards the end but upfornt it is quite smooth and sweet. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 29, 2004
Pours a light tan, one finger-head that goes slowly leaving a good lace. Deep amber color. Light carbonation. Medium bodied. Nose is malty. Starts sweet, has a plum flavor finishes smooth and mellow. Nice dark beer. $1.75 for a 12oz bottle from Liquor Barn Lexington, KY. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2004
Solidly dark brown color with a fizzy tan head, this has a sweet malt aroma. It’s got a creamy mouthfeel, and the taste is of roasted caramel malts and a dash of dark fruits. Bit of a bitter aftertaste, but not offensive.
