Bottled (true vintage, BBE 2003, enjoyed in 03/2013). Very deep ambery brown colour with a mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, some slight burnt sugary notes as well as some mild toasted notes. Slight ripe fruit as well, which may be a result of oxidation. Flavour is mild roasted malts, some caramel and burnt sugar along with mild some slight raisiny notes. Doesn’t taste cardboardy or sweetly oxidized, so this beer has actually held the 10 years or so rather well. I’ve had way worse fresh beers. jutuahol (190) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 20, 2003
Dark brown color, thick head, slightly lace. Full, smooth and balanced, bitter. Smooth and pretty long finish. Sigmund (7832) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 (500 ml bottle, in Helsinki). Dark brown colour, good head, moderate but decent aroma - and then: Bland, boring flavour when you expect the richness of a good dunkel. Short aftertaste. Disappointing. All Norwegian dunkels are better than this Finnish stuff. omhper (25565) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2002
Dark brown with creamy head. Neutral roma. Roasty, but thin. Low bitterness. One-dimensional. Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 16, 2002

What flavor? For a dark lager this is a real disappointment. Bland, with no taste. Come ON, guys, you can do better than that! This is mildly flavored water with some alcohol thrown in. tomppa444 (46) - FINLAND - FEB 3, 2002
A nice dark beer. Bit burnt taste. Perhaps could use a bit more flavor. ....
