50cl bottle pours with a dark amber body that supports an off white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up sort of roasted malt notes, sort of chocolate malts and then some nuttiness followed by a touch of sweet dark fruity esters. The taste begins with a mix of sweet malts, nuttiness and slivers of chocolate malts. It then quickly picks up prunes and raisins as the modest chocolate note moves forward. Pretty nice stuff. jfb (6569) - GERMANY - AUG 14, 2013
(bottle) pours a clear deep ruby colour with a frothy off-white head. aroma of dark fruit and roasted malts, slightly metallic, with a hint of bread dough. flavour is mostly roasted malts and yeast, quite grainy, with a light herbal-hoppy finish. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

Bruna con poca schiuma poco persistente. Aroma semplice, liscio con caratteri metallici e sprazzi di caramello. L’imbocco, da classica dunkel, è caratterizzato da un corpo agile e poco possente di impronta dolce. Di nuovo i caratteri metallici, malti tostati e un amaro erbaceo si fanno avanti. Chiude con una componente salina. Buona ed estremamente beverina. Insomma è tutto quello che chiediamo a una dunkel. MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Pours in deep brown with nice head and bit bigger carbo than usual. Lot of malty coffee aromas which I don´t like. Definitely a quality beer but not hitting my nose nor my taste. McTapps (6950) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. Deep amber in colour with low head. Nose of malt. Taste of brown bread, cereals, low malt and roasted nuts. Not really that easy to drink and not really delicious.

Dunkelbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer und ordentlich bräunlicher Schaum. Röstmalziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist schön malzig, wunderbar zwischen Süße und Würze ausbalanciert. Im Sturz kommt noch eine schöne Hopfennote dazu. Ein gutes Dunkles!

This one was a bit gusher. Deep red, not much head (beige head vanishing quickly). Strong aroma of dark bread and malta. Medium-bodied. Rye bread, caramel and soya sauce in the toasted flavor. Dried dark fruits. Simple, kvass-like flavor. Actually this tastes more a bock than typical dunkel, just lacks alcohol.
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Deep ambery brown colour with a small beige foamy head. Aroma is mild chocolate, some nutty notes as well as toasted malts and mild floral notes. Flavour is nutty, mildly toasted notes, some sweet caramel as well as mild floral notes. Mariusz (12088) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2012
Very dark brown with medium head. Flavour is light roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, hops, little bitter and little sweet.
