500 ml. bottle. 5% ABV per the label. Pours a medium, light beige head, over a clear light brown (SRM 20) body....nose is light toasted malts with toast, biscuit, hints of toffee/caramel, minimal esters....taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, hints of toffee/caramel, light hop bitterness and light spice....mouth feel light of medium, carbonation low with light acid. This is a quite typical Dunkel with moderate roasted malts, light hops and not a tremendous amount of character. Rating above to my enjoyment, rating at the right to style.

Pours a pretty reddish brown color with a small head.wlajwl (7008) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 19, 2013
The aroma is pretty sweet, with lots of caramel, toasted marshmallow, and some mild roastiness.
The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma lets on, although it’s a moderately sweet beer… flavors of cola, some mild bitterness, light earthy hops, & nuttiness. Some nice flavors here for sure, s’a pity that cola seems to be the dominant one….
The palate is bubbly but really pretty thin.
Aroma is strong toffee/caramel, earthiness and a hint of spice. The flavor is toffee/caramel, light fruit, thin body and a odd off tangy note in the finish. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2013

Bottle. Deep red-brown body, thin beige head/ring. Nose of toffee, prune, and toast. Sweet body, with prune, fig, and raisin toast, some slick syrupy sweetness. Slight oxidation. Fairly rich with a pretty good bite.

16.9oz bottle, thanks to Alicia M. for bringing this back for me. Shared at Natifest 2013. Mildly hazy golden orange amber color. Minimal off-white head. No lace sticks.. Chocolate, dark fruit aroma. Light carbonation, kind of soft. Medium-plus body. Dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Some bigger nuttiness. This is a pretty good dunkel. A pleasant surprise, as the hefe I had from them was really disappointing. phaleslu (10551) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2013
