pivnizub (10906) - Bochum, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2006
Bottle (@Pivni Galerie, Praha- Holesovice): Very dark, almost black with a thin beige-brownish head; dry aroma: mainly roast-malty, some caramel and molasses; dry bitter and a bit fruity flavour, quite light bodied; lingering bitter (chocolate) finish, but also fruity notes (citrus) detectable; not sweet at all. More a Schwarzbier than a Dunkel; refreshing and well balanced........ Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2005
A brown beer with a small brown head. The aroma is sweet malty and slight hints of toffee. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of roasted malt, but again some toffee. JorisPPattyn (10118) - BELGIUM - JUN 12, 2005
Very fine & dense brownish head, creamy & leaving lace; beautiful dark-chestnut beer. Roasted barley & malts; bit of dark candi sugar in the nose. Again roasted malt, barley & coffee. Quite dry but quite thin as well. It’s not a stout, OK, but even for a Dunkel it’s thin. Slightly smoked. As said, thin. Bit velvety MF. IT’s OK - I suppose it makes a great session beer, rather than a tastign-supping sensation. Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - APR 26, 2005
Bottled. Dark brown coloured. Malty aroma with notes of apple. Very sweet and malty flavour, again apple notes. Slightly thin. DanielBrown (4563) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2005
Bottle from the Criterion, Leicester. Nice dark Dunkel with a creamy, beige head. A creamy choc flavour, mixed with water and a few specks of metal. Smooth, and actually a little Porterish. A drinkable session beer, which is clean and balanced, without being a taste sensation.
rauchbier (3949) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2004
Bottle, GBBF 2004. Deep chestnut, thin off white head and gentle condition. Roast barley and a sweet butteriness in the aroma, low sweet caramel and gentle Roastiness in the mouth and some lingering fruity raisin notes in the finish.
duff (5486) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 24, 2004
Bottle. Mollasses and toast, lightly syrupy texture, but nice flavour, finished a little bit salty, which was surprising. BIt of caramel. Subtle, but nice. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2004
Bottled - Bedford Beer Festival. A malty nutty aroma with a bit of butterscotch. Typical dark brown dunkel coloured. Good nutty caramel and smooth fruits in the taste. Good body and very moreish. I tended to cuddle this glass and not give the others much of a go if my memory serves me right. Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2004
Botted at the Bedford Beer Festival 2004 (Wednesday Session).Sweet,Bitter chocolate, fruit, slightly acidic.
Nice! bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2004
Very dark brown color. Coffee, caramel and brown sugar aroma. Coffee, caramel and roasted malt in the flavor. Rubber aftertaste. Maybe a bit on the thin side, but still a very nice beer, though not perfect.
