Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Very dark brown, lasting tan head. Really tasty dunkel, lots of roasted malt, but not heavy in mouth. Moderate intensity and a good lasting tasty finish. Good stuff. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Cask conditioned - gravity dispense - GBBF 2007. A black coloured beer with a large marshmallow consistenct off-white head. The aroma is a bit smoky with ah touch of roast. The taste has some chocolate and some light roast. A nice beer which just needs more body. wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2007
Draft @ Plevna. Dark brown hue with reddish tints and a light tan, foamy head. Aroma is quite smoky with notes of dark bread, fresh herbs, slightly burnt toast, maillard reactions and roast. Flavour beings moderately sweet with a light bitterness and finishes with a soft sweetness and a moderate bitterness, mainly from the roasty character. The smoke isn’t as pronounced in the flavour, yeilding more to the breads and sugars. Medium bodied with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2007
Near black colored, medium sized beige head. Roasted aroma with sweet caramel. Medium bodied. Flavor is even more roasted with slight chocolate, Plevna-flowery character from hops here also. Roastiness and coffee last long in aftertaste with bitter hops. Soft palated. Nicely balanced dunkel. Rune (13727) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2006
250ml on tap at the Plevna’s brewpub in Tampere (great place!) (06.10.2006). Very dark body. Small creamy head. Rather poor in aroma, but some sweet hops can be detected. Java coffe flavour and a pleasant cocoa finish. Flat and dry. Not bad for a dark lager.

Draught. Black/red colour, minor beige foamy head. Sweet malts and hops along with a bit caramel in aroma. Sweet plum and caramel in flavour, along with hints of hops. Hoppy bittersweet aftertaste. Sticky palate. sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 12, 2004
TBone (18553) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 20, 2004
, Helsinki) Very dark, reddish brown color with very small but lacy, tanned head. A mild aroma of sweetish malt and licorice. Quite pleasant and complex, sweetish but slightly sour, very malty licorice flavor with rye and toffee hints. Medium to full-bodied, slicky, but quite thick palate with low carbonation. An excellent, tasty and full-bodied dunkel! The aroma is a bit weak, though.
Draught at Plevna Brewery Pubomhper (25950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2002
Almost opaque. Brown creamy head. Not much aroma - light hops. Very balanced mouthfeel with hops and sweet malts. Bitter aftertaste.
Sampled draught at Panimoravintola Herman, Turku.hamppari99 (6) - FINLAND - MAR 26, 2002 does not count
Near black with creamy head. Grapefruity, flowery aroma. Fruity, yet very dry. Light- to medium bodied. Some licorice flavour. Salty bitter finish. Really nice hoppy aroma, but the mouthfeel is not very soft.
The best dunkel beer in Finland, and only available in one restaurant called Plevna(located in Tampere, Finland). You never get bored in this beer.
