Bonifatius Dunkel. Yes, this is a Franconian Dunkel, I suppose. And it is indeed a bit more exciting than the incredible sea of boredom where the world of Dunkles sits upon. Sweet, dry, nutty, really creamy. The hoppy touch, a little bitterness, not too much, breaks the Dunkel monotony, making a tremendous difference.

Bottle from South Lyndale Liquor. A light brown color and low carbonation. The aroma has malt and lager yeast but there is also some light spice I can’t identify, along with the lightest nutmeg. Rich palate and lots of sweet malt. A very good dunkel, and unusual with the light spice. Another reminder that it is hard to get a quality dunkel outside of central Europe.

Schönes und sattes dunkelbraun mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Im Aroma kommt herberes Blockmalz auf. Der Antrunk ist dann eher dünn geraten, geschmacklich aber gelungen. Es lassen sich verschiedene Malztöne zwischen lieblich-süß über Toffeenoten bis würzig-brotige Nuancen erschmecken. Durchaus lecker, könnte aber einen Tick kräftiger ausfallen.

Medium beige head. Beautiful deep ambery brown body. Earthy
caramelly mineraly toffee aroma with nougaty marzipan notes.
Wow. Dry-sweet caramelly earthy marzipan taste with roasty
grainy mineraly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel.
Dryish earthy roasty marzipana aftertaste with mineraly burnt
caramel notes. Flavour lingers for a good while. Unusual, but
really, really nice. (0.5l bottle, Absinth Depot Berlin.) kevnic2008 (12010) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - SEP 20, 2012
Aroma of clove and dark fruit. Pours iced tea brown with no head. Taste is light but nutty. Same fruits with a good roast

from Bier-Bienne - pours a clear brown beer with a little foam left; toasted and earthy malty aroma with fair notes of caramel; quite sweet, medium-bodied and with a low carbonation; some late earthy tartness and more toasted malts in the finish ClubGonzo (5670) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
Bottle. Deep nougat-hued bronze body, medium off-white head. Nose is coffee, nougat, deep smooth caramel tones, hints of malt extract and smoke far in the back. Pleasant. Taste is smokey deep malts, caramel, hints of nougat and burnt sugar. Prominent smokey tones, also in the aftertaste. This is really nice. Medium body, smooth carbonation with just enough drinkability to provide the goods. I liked this one a lot. Marduk (7912) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUN 14, 2012
0,5l bottle. Dark copper color. Small beige head, stays. Malty, faint caramel, grains in aroma. Watery, faint caramel in flavor. Weak dry smoky ending. Not bad, but also nothing special. suurjuust (3566) - ESTONIA - MAY 13, 2012
Ruby red, slightly tan head. Nose is very bready, malty, kvass-like. Taste is caramel, bready malts. Watery, bready finish with caramel notes. Dry-ish finish with some hops. Easy to drink. rand (1700) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle 50 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Brown with generous foam and aromas of malt, toffy and chocolate. The taste is soft, sweetened, rather round, with chocolate, cream, toast, brown sugar and note of walnut. Beer supple, refreshing, low in bitterness but perfect with a salad with walnuts, cheese and .. croutons.
