Kita (2328) - Koper, SLOVENIA - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle, 0.33l. Pours cloudy almost black with thin frothy light brown head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of moderate roasted malt, coffee, caramel and grassy hops. Taste starts with light sweet roasted malt, milky coffee and dark chocolate with fresh grassy following and moderate bitter finish. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Not bad, but can’t cope with better Czech dunkels... kajser27 (2136) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 9, 2015
Dark brown to almost black colored, moderate to small tan head. Aroma is of caramel, malt, chocolate, more roasted malt with a hint of dark fruits and some roasted acidity. Taste is low to medium sweet caramel, Munich malt, bit of nuts, some chocolate, bit of dark fruits with a roasted dry finish. Medium- bodied, moderate carbonation. Pretty decent stuff.

(Pivkan 0,33l bottle)
Dark body with ruby corners with almost no foam. Aroma has caramel notes, sweet. Taste has caramel notes, dark chocolate with hints of coffee. Bitterness is low, but balanced. Body is full, high carbonation. coldbrewky (1731) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2011
1L bottle via Cuso. Dark ruby pour with some central brown tone. Thick spongy tan head. Nose of red wine mixed with sweet dark malt. Upfront cereal tone is quickly overwhelmed by wine infused oakyness. Tart center with a loitering finish. Body is medium and short-lived. If there are any hops in this dunkel they have been consumed by the wet oak / wine bittering. A very nice change of pace. D’akujem vám!
