Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is loaded with heavy roasted grains along with some faint brown sugar and nuts. It pours a bright transparent copper with a one finger beige head that leaves behind a solid sheet of lacing...an impressive looking beer. The flavor starts with some nice light chocolate and caramel. Moderate roasted grains in the middle, but nowhere near as strong as the aroma would you to believe they would be. The finish has some light chocolate and roasted nuts. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. kappldav123 (6100) - GERMANY - OCT 7, 2011
Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black. Nice head. Starts mild, fine malty, not too roasty. Hints of caramel. Well balanced finish, quite drinkable. Really good dunkles. Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 18, 2011
Bottle at home. Pours a deep chestnut brown colour with a thick, light tan head. Aroma of bready yeast, biscuity malt, Weetabix, caramel and grassy hops. Similar biscuity flavour with a little grass again and light woody and earthy notes. Moderate carbonation, light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Nice and malty with a chocolate linger. hayduke (5204) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 21, 2013

Light chestnut. Puffy, sticky white foam. Enticing aroma of anise, almond, hazelnut, earth and toffee. Relaxed carbonation. Complexly malty on initital sip, with a medley of toffee-glazed nuts, rich hay, honeyed biscuits and creamed coffee. Big Munich punch. Immaculately clean attenuation enables the luscious, artfully placed flowery Hallertau to flourish and pillar the center. Finishes sassy and airy, with minerals paving the way for a flavorsome fusion of nutty, creamed coffee malt and a spicy-floral punch of hops. A clean and lovely dunkel that weaves subtlety with complexity.

Rich red, small tight head. Rich grainy aroma, quite bready, Anna
detects some cocoa. Soft carbonation, smooth palate. Really rich malty
grainy taste, a touch nutty, some smokiness too. Bitterness stays for
a gentle nutty finish. Goes down very easily, but packed full of
flavour. Great dunkles.
