fonefan (46063) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 2, 2007
Draught @ brewery tap, Aufseß-Heckenhof, Oberfranken/Bayern, Germany. Clear medium brown color with a average, creamy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, nutty, moderate yeasty. Flavor is moderate sweet, light light acidic and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Very nice and refreshing. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. ;o)) (181007)

Koelschtrinker (18404) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Aromatisch malziger Antrunk, würzige und herbe Noten sind erst später vorhanden. Hier spielen angenehme aber nicht wirklich starke ausbalancierte Noten eine Rolle, die für einen Aürzschub sorgen, der im Abgang seinen Höhepunkt erreicht. Im Abgang etwas bitter und, überraschend und erfreulich, etwas fruchtig. 12/10/9/10//9

MiP (15379) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
Draught at the brewpub. Dark brown colour. Good stable creamy tan head. The flavour is slightly bready in the good way, resembles rye, but probably is not. OK mouthfeel, slightly creamy.

bierkoning (12819) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2011
Tap @ Kathi Heckenhof. brown color, hazy. Roast and some caramel in the malty, bready flavor. Maybe a bit thin. Long roasty earthy hopbitter finish. Earthy hoparoma. A very rural but hugely drinkable dunkel.

pivnizub (10312) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle (10dl) Amber coloured, bigger, quite persistent, almost creamy off-white head; moderate sweet dark-malty nose with a shy, but distinctive hoppy background and a touch of barnyard; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, soft MF, quite "full" bodied for a beer of 4.8%; sweet-malty and bitter finish. A well crafted and well rounded franconian brew.............

MartinT (9592) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2011
My Bottom Line :
This rustic Dunkel’s striking earthy, herbal hop bitterness follows pumpernickel bread impressions and mild blueberry esters for a pint which is as memorable as it is quaffable.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the blackened brown.
-This tastes like an ancestor to today’s Black IPAs...
-The mouthfeel is quite dry, which makes the hop bitterness feel more potent.
-Malts offer mild roasted and smoked flavors too.

On tap at the brewpub.
