5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Deep caramel pour, moderate to large foamy off-white head, fairly decent lacing.   Huge toasted malt nose, lots of nuttiness as well.   Big nuttiness on the tongue, dry, clean, but not a whole lot of caramel like malt.   Smells and tastes somewhat of a Brown Ale but without the Ale characteristics.   A little earthy on the backside.   Lingering toasted malts and nutiness.   Actually if I didn’t know better I would I might consider this a Brown Ale.   Tiz okay, but not what I thought of as a Dunkle.   Needs more caramel malt characterm.   Also a touch thin.   Sessionable for sure. reebtogi (6246) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2012
650ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is nutty with hints of caramel and chocolate with some roasted and earthy notes as well. Taste is a roasted nutty and earthy bitterness balanced nicely with a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness. Lighter bodied than expected but with decent carbonation. An easier drinking dunkel that is quite tasty. luttonm (6172) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2016
22oz in Seattle. Clean orange-brown, no head. Warm, banana sweet. A little roast, dry finish, quite delicious and very crisp. A little chocolate note. Marheb (5726) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2016
(Bouteille provenant de Best Damn Beer Shop): Un heureux mélange de noisettes, raisins secs, chocolat noir et verdure docile. Superbe. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2009
Bottle... Poured deep amber with a khaki head. Caramel notes with a floral quality on the nose. Fizzy carbonation with bready malts and a floral bitterness oppose to toasted characters. Smooth and creamy in the finish with earthy spices and sugary tones.

22 oz bottle poured. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a fading head. Rich malty aroma. Flavor is lightly roasted malt, mild bread flavor, rye, and a slight chocolate background. Has a touch of smokiness as well towards the finish. Interesting, unique beer. Pretty good. Steve_0 (3745) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle at home with friends. Pour is clear brown with a light red tint and frothy tan head - good lacing. Grainy, biscuity, slight roast, husky, cereal, grassy, and slightly fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, husky, grains, toasted cereal, grass, light cocoa, and straw. Light body with medium carbonation. Easy drinking stuff, but may not be at its freshest.

22 oz bottle. Clear copper brown with a pocked beige head. Nose is dough, raisin, nuts and, deep down, blackberry pie. Wow, this smells fantastic! Not quite medium body but i wouldn’t want it much heavier. Soft carb with a silky finish. Taste is subtle brown sugar, bitter almond and grass; cocoa powder and clove linger. Each sip is a dunkel revelation. DYCSoccer17 (3691) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
10 ounce sample on tap at The Horse Brass in Portland, OR. Aroma is a bit fruity with berry notes before it takes on a little toasted and roasted character. Dark amber transparent body with a light tan head and fair lacing. Very nice, roasted, slightly burnt and chocolatey malts to start. This is relatively full-bodied and nicely roasted. Pretty good stuff. SrSilliGose (3330) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
