Pine bottle from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer poured mid brown and clear. Kind of tea colored but darker. A nice beige fluffy head was big and finally completely disappeared. An aroma that had some roasted notes with hops. The flavor surprised me a bit and I didn’t quite know how to categorize it. I tasted plenty of sweet malts. Grass and spices, too. Hops were interesting as was the yeast. There was some fruit in there and some nuts that grew with warmer temps. The aftertaste was spice and several minutes after the last sip is gone I still taste it.

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.) SaintMatty (7612) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 23, 2009

Aroma is heavy on dark malts, with some graininess as well. The flavor is caramel, toffee, nuttiness and a smooth finish. No off flavors or harshness and a good flavor, this was a great dunkel. mansquito (7148) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 21, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 50cl ($4.50): Pours a copper color with a whitish head. Aroma is caramel, malt, and a modicum of hops. Taste is quite sweet, and it leaves somewhat of an aftertaste that is quite sugary. Body is medium. Not bad, but easily forgettable.
