Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2008
Beautiful red-golden with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel and a light sweetness. The flavour has a light sweetness, is light but pleasantly spicy, malty, notes of caramel and a nicely balanced citrus bitter finish.

thewolf (12375) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2008
Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, Yespr]
Pours a great clear brown with a medium frothy off white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sweet, caramel, light ginger, dried fruits and a fine touch of chocolate far behind that. Fine lightness to the mouthfeel, much in style. Flavour is sweet. Fruity at first then turns towards a great roasted and chocolate note. A bit of a metallic off-flavour detracts from what is otherwise a great dunckler bock!

yespr (43355) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 22, 2008
30 cL bottle. Pours golden deep orange to amber, clear with a dense off-white head. Spiced aroma, light presence of a solid caramel and chocolate malt profile beneath. Flavour is spiced, shows a medium sweet chocolate malt base. Lingering spiced and slight chemical like note into the finish. Gets a slight bit to dominant on the spice note.

fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JAN 15, 2008
12 oz bottle. Lots of floaties in this beer. Murky brown with nice head. Lots of dark fruit aromas. Some earthy dust too. Flavors were more raisin and fig. No bitter finish. Pretty good.

hopscotch (11005) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle... Hazy, medium brown lager with a mid-sized, frothy, beige head. The discreet aroma is lightly acidic and of unidentified dark fruits. Full-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Sweet, tangy flavor... moderately sweet and somewhat tart with restrained bitterness. Finishes lightly pungent and bittersweet.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 20, 2007
Bottle. Starch brown sugar coloring. Prominent nutty residue ("a lot of crap in there" as my wife says). rimmed, tan head. Raisin, toffee, caramel with faint vinegar hint. Surprisingly light flavor though black olive pours through. leafy, acorn, date, notes that shift and change by the second. this is a thoroughly confusing, complex and unfortunately unappealing beer. I wouldnt be surprised to see huge lovers and huge haters of this one

Bov (12556) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 17, 2007
from crackedkettle.com - hazy ruby-brown colour with a little stable pale beige foam; aroma of yeast, caramel and pear; sweet and overly carbonated; astringent, effervescent caramelish finish

TBone (17076) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 4, 2007
Bottled (BB 08/2008)
Hazy nut brown color, decent creamy off-white head. Sticky aroma of berries, dark malts and rye. Medium-bodied, smooth mouthfeel. Grainy, sweet and sour flavor. A bit burned malty, almost soy sauce -like. Wheat and rye can be picked from the flavors. Odd sourness makes me wonder if this is infected, but other ratings indicate that this may not be a case. Not my cup of tea.
