Draft: Pours a rich dark brown with a thin tan head. Musty hop and earthy malt aroma. Body starts with some grainy off-flavors and finishes with a more authentic German flavor and some sweet, almost floral European hops. This could definitely use some more balance and fresher ingredients.

Good aroma. Full bodied. Medium brown (deep) with adequate foam. Slightly sweet taste. Foam dissipates quickly.

stoutosaurus (157) - Clinton, Mississippi, USA - JAN 2, 2004
Not good, but not too bad. Won't have this one again. A little sour and very thin body.

MartinT (9729) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2003
Listless roastiness amongst restless veggies...Pumpernickel crumbs drowning in weak, watery fizz...Campfire embers several days after being doused by heavy rains...

(bottle) Deep-medium brown with good off-white head. Mild aromas. Very little malt aroma. Mild malt flavors. A bit thin in body.

No strong flavors other than a metalic one. A very mainstream brew with no distinguishing qualities

POured a rootbeer color, little color. ALmost no head,. Aroma is slightly skunked, floral. Flavor is very watery, not living up to the dark color of this one. Wouldn't recommend it.

Reid (2474) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2003
On tap at Gustav's Restaurant, Clackamas, Oregon. Beer looks like a glass of black coffee with a tan head..by "black coffee" i dont really mean completely black..but a mahogany brown colour. Smell was quite subdued..slight chocolaty style malts but not much. Very thin and watery tatslessness..poor carbonation..flat horrid. Thin and wat too watery on the tongue. Not very drinkable at all..i wonder if there was some problem with the keg?

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Average beer. Quick diminishing head, leaving very little lace. Dark amber/ caramel tone. First sips were the best, dimishing to a watery taste (despite the color). Ehh.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 21, 2003
Dark cola color to this no headed beer. Smells like water and malt. This really isn't a very good beer. The taste is slightly bitter and hardly that, caramel, water. Not a great dark beer at all. If Warsteiner is the Bud Light of Germany, the Dunkel must be the Amber Bock. Unimpressive beer to say the least. Germany has so much more to offer. Wow, tangy (sarcasm).
