5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle: Pitch brown, nearly black, moderate frothy light beige head, very sticky lacing. Subtle roasted malt nose, slightly bready, very minor fig/date as well. Smooth malt body, pale roasted malts, very clean, no residuals. Mouthfeel is fairly moderate tho. This one is too easy to drink, a true measure of how good it is. Probably one of the better ones I have had. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2006
This was awesome! Pours a deep reddish brown, with a nice rocky head. Almost porterish in the mouthfeel, with an ample amount of roastiness, chocolate and caramel with some tasty dark fruits. Not too heavy on the palate, but just right! Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Dark brown in appearance with huge beige head. Great lacing. Aroma is all chocolate up front. Plenty of toasted grain and roasted nuts. Flavor almost exactly like arom indicates. Nutty/roasted character comes through even more as it warms. Very subdued fig/prune flavor towards the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy smooth, but thin at times. Not a dunkel fan at all, but this is pretty nice. Underrated IMO. detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours a nice deep and clear brown, with a huge head of light brown foam that recedes to a thin cap in about a minute. Decent lacing.
Mild chocolate malt in the aroma. More bittersweet chocolate in the flavor, along with a little bit of toasted malt. Fresh and clean, medium body, solid carbonation, with a mild hopping for balance. Good balance, good smooth drinking. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Great, slightly woodsy and ever so subtly sweet Dunkel. MMmmm, a little brown sugar interplays with a rich smoky (but not over the top) flavor. Aromas are of forest and earth. Palate just a touch watery. Great pockmarked ecru head. Wonderful example of the style.

Another style that I believe is underappreciated on this site. This is not a "BIG" beer but a well made milder style. I could see myself drinking this well balance brew and eying well endowed German barmaids. DragonStout (1416) - Groveport, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2005
An Average beer.Pours dark with lots of roasted malts n coffe flavor.The head dissipated quickly hotstuff (5144) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 19, 2005
Bottle. Large ivory frothy head that was mostly lasting, excellent lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, no visible carbonation, opaque, and a reddish brown hue. Malty, caramel, roasty, sweet nose. Malty, roasty and coffee tasting. Tingly mouthfeel. Medium body. jimhilt (2610) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Pours with a four-finger very light tan head, fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Nearly black color. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Nose is malty. Starts slightly sweet, definite hoppy finish but not overpowering. Good Oktoberfest. $3.60 for a 500ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2005
