Canned. Rubby body. Brown head, diminishing. Scents sweet bread, dough, caramel, coffee and cassis. Burnt-bread aroma. The initial flavor is sweet, tastes cassis. Well blended hoppy and roasted bitterness in the finish, also coffee. Oily, full, soft. My complements: they got it all at the expense of 5.5% only! TBone (17544) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2005

Dark ruby, creamy tanned head. Sweet, skunky hoppy nose. Harsh version of Hartwall’s Dark Lager: a bit roasted, sweetish, shows some alcoholic harshness in the finish.
well, I have a cold so I could barely smell this, some malt, sweets, yeast. Nice malty dunkel, a little flat but enjoyable madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2005
<o>Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Clear. Brown coloured head. Sweet and smoky aroma. Flavour is like smoked bacon and buttery. Fruity in the end. A bit to thin bodied for my likings. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Darned decent dunkel! It pours a deep mahogany color with ruby highlights and a massive, rocky light brown (not tan) head that leaves great chunks of "lacing" behind. The aroma is complex for a dunkel, a smokey, dried coffee, roasted malt kind of affair. The mouthfeel is amazingly creamy and aids in sliding this down the throat quite easily. The flavor is a masterful blend of roasted malt, caramel, coffee, and a smattering of creamy milk chocolate. The finish is subtly sweet with a hint of smoke. I had to doublecheck the bottle to reaffirm what I was drinking. This is every bit as good, perhaps better, as Okocim’s Baltic Porter - - and, yes, that is saying something.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2005 Dark, smokey, caramel/coffee-like flavour, a little sweet but tasty. A pleasnt, slightly bitter aftertaste. Head looks quite good, lasting. Okocim’s best, unique on Polish market, recommended. Krasulak (88) - Wapadrand, Pretoria, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 27, 2005
Dark brown with a lasting tan head. Light roasted malt aroma with some fruityness. Light roasted malt, sweetish caramel flavour with a note of dark fruit. Medium body and sweet finish. Good Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Good nose of dark malts, bread and some caramel. Dark brown body, with a small off-white head. Malty flavor, caramel, and some pleasant smoke. A very good dunkel. kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle: Deep dark brown with a large, long lasting beige head. Light roast coffee aroma, with some fruity notes behind it. Flavour is similar, mainly roast, but with some interesting sweeter berry notes there too. Not bad. Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
Brown colour with a big baige head. Light roasted malty dark fruity aroma and taste. Medium body and a sweet finish.
