IS this overly metallic and bitey or am I crazy. I remember thinking SPG was the best a long time ago, now I amleft feeling like I was wrong.
Dark brown/black color; Medium body; Aroma of sweet toasted malt, & caramel; Flavor of roasted malt, caramel, and some hops; Finish is slightly bitter; Surprised by this one - decent dunkel. hauxe (712) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 29, 2016
Rated from old notes. Pleasant, slightly sweet roasted malt taste. Fizzy, though this rapidly flattens; the head makes a quick exit as well. Light bodied, and with little complexity. Still, not an unpleasant brew and tolerable with food, and in quantity. OK. BlackBeerPG (627) - Darien, Illinois, USA - NOV 5, 2015
Taste is roasted malt, crisp and yet creamy. Dark brown in color and mostly clear. A nutty aroma and a medium body. Smooth head with some lace.
A gentle drinking lager for anytime. ozzy70 (1125) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours brown. Sweet aroma with toasted malts. Taste of roasted malt, sweet, a hint of caramel. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
not wretched, and a step or two or three above the classic and the NA. like a light dunkel, has the requisite flavors and aroma, just less of it all.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute.
There was a decent dry chocolate and somewhat of a banana like smell.
The taste was mainly sweet and had a decent sweet finish.
On the palate, this one sat fairly light and showed a decent sessionable aspect about it. The carbonation was mainly smooth.
Overall, this was not a bad Dunkel but not necessarily one of the better ones. alexsdad06 (10268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at home from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted malts, caramel, light fruit character, hints of chocolate, low bitterness, flavor falls off on the finish, just a slight off note. jagad5 (89) - - JUN 23, 2014
Pretty bad, especially for a German import. The bottle was flat when I opened it, created almost no head when I poured it, and slaked no thirst as I drank it. Headbanger (3992) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a clear medium brown with a small head. Aroma of light chocolate, caramel, and hops. Taste of malt and slight hops. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad but not good. adnielsen (10605) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins. Pours a deep burgundy orange appearance with a thin light brown head. Toasty grain / caramel / nutty, cookie dough aroma with mild hops and a bit of skunk. Burnt sugar / caramel, slightly sweet, a bit metallic, mild cardboard flavor. Bottle seems a bit old but I really never liked this beer much at all. Hopefully this is the last time I’ll ever drink it.
