I wish I’d tasted the Sigtuna Vinterlager together with this one, and not yesterday. Right now I feel like I’m drinking the same beer once more, but I’m sure there are some differences… It looks quite different though: the Dunkel Lager is dark copper and the small, frothy and very light-brown head are gone in no time and leaves little lacing. The moderate aroma is roasted with caramel, mild coffee and hints of ash. The taste is light sweet and light to moderate bitter, I guess the Dunkel Lager is a bit less bitter than the Vinterlager. Roasted flavour profile with coffee with fruits and berries on top (more fruity than the Vinterlager). Nice mouthfeel, although I got some vague metallic hints in the first few sips. Dry texture, especially the finish is dry. Soft carbonation. Finn (7916) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 17, 2014
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before the handwritten BB date (isn’t that craft beer-ish?), from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet Oslo Vika. Skibotn 4 Mai 13. Ekstremt dyp amber. Bra skum med litt lacing. God aroma av røstet malt. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er litt tynn. Hint av røstet malt. Blir litt tørr bitter etter hvert. KI=7

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Very dark brown, creamy head. Mild coffee and caramel up front. MId dry with clean mouthfeel and light-medium body. Flavours of fudge and espresso, increasingly bitter finish, A modern/US style interpretation of dunkel. olsvammel (7274) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a very dark red liquid with a big dirty white head. Smell of dark bread and a bit of yeast. The taste was more focused on dark spicy bread, but also some chocolate and nuts. Slightly harsh mouthfeel and light body.

Bra färg och inledande smak. Den saknar fyllighet och eftersmak. Viss ton av sterinljus. Inte en av Sigtunas bästa. Leini (2076) - SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2013
330ml bottle. Dark brown with a hint of red. White head. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. Mild bitter ending with a sweet touch. Interesting "hybrid". Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2011
Bottle at home - shared with Mette. Almost black - offwhite head. Burned malts, dry burned, metallic, carcoal, light body, high malty, light light hoppy. Rune (13383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2012
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Headless, deep, dark brown coloured body. Liquorice malts to the nose. Bitter liquorice in flavour supported by subdued chocolate hints, slightly roasted. Dark spices included as well. Soft in the mouth. Quite alright (hotel room, Bergen 16.09.2012). Cool_Bond (2745) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2012
Smells almost anything. Tastes pretty much. The aftertaste disappears quickly. A pretty mediocre beer. Thought it would be much better but it needs more flavor to be good. Poor with a taste more.
