Dark brown colour with a thick brown short lasting head. Toffee nose. Medium bodied. Malty flavour with hints of toffee, chocolate and coffee. Short aftertaste. fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Very dark color. Caramel aroma, burnt sugar. Good mouthfeel, with some sweetness, malt, a lot of caramel, good balancing bitterness. Equilibrated and enjoyable. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2004
Bottled: Dark amber coloured. Clear. LIght chocolate brown and dense head. Medium lasting. Is sweet and malty with some fruit accents and a light sourness. The sourness isn’t unpleasant, its just not what I expected. Is sweet and chocolatish in the end. Not the most exciting dunkel I’ve had. bark (255) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2004
The colour is clear, dark brown with a hint of red, just like Coca-Cola. The foam is impressive, large and brownish, it dissolves slowly into a small white ring.
A burned diacetyl-caramel note dominates the smell, but there are also hints of hops, coffee and some grass/straw.
The carbonation is medium strong with small, lasting bubbles. Fresh!
The taste got some pretty strong flavours of burned malt and diacetyl. The strong, somewhat dry bitterness fades into a mild maltiness with some notes of gravy. The aftertaste is surprisingly mild with a fine, malty bitterness that is accompanied by some sweetness and vegetable stock.
This is a really nice and powerful dark lager. I liked it! duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2004
Bottle. Pretty light, but its OK, some licorice and roasted malt, easy drinking, soft and innofensive, quite malty and soft.

(Tapped) Dark reddish color with a large head. Faint, earthy aroma with some roasted malt. Sweet, caramel-syrupy oatmeal-porridge flavor. Light to medium-bodied, sugary and low-carbonated palate. A good looking dunkel, but unfortunately spoiled with excess sweetness for the quite watery body. Not well-balanced. Ungstrup (37561) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2004
A deep red beer with a beutiful light brown head. The aroma is sweet with notes of roasted malt and roasted bread. The flavor is of sweet caramel and roasted bread, but the body is thin. Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Brown reddish body with a medium tan head. Sweet aroma with tones of burned brown sugar and coffee. Also brown sugar in the flavor along with roasted malt. Very sweet and a little cloying. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2004
Brown coloured. Fruity and malty aroma. Very thin flavour. Malty and dry. Quite boring and one dimensional. Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2004
I have reason (that I'm not letting on!) to be in Sumperk in the Jesenicky region of Moravia a few times a year. Sumperk is a good drinking town with a good choice of beer available but this is my drink of choice when there. An inviting chocolate and toffee nose leads to a sweet chocolate and caramel tasting beer, smooth silky and relaxing. The short finish has some dryness to balance the caramel sweetness. Maybe a touch on the sweet side, but a good beer to sit and drink with friends, and it has a bit of character too. (sampled on draught at the Gastro bar, Sumperk)
