First new brew of the New Year. Sampled on 1/2/14. Comes in a pretty 330ml cool bottle with a ceramic stopper. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a pretty copper/amber in color with a 1-finger off white head. Some sticky lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma is of a sweet dark bready malt. The taste is about the same with just a slight hoppy finish. Very light though and not bad at all actually. Overall a good dark brew.

11.2 oz. bottle poured into pilsener
(4/12/14 best by date)

L: orange, dark brown, about 95% clear -- a slight mistiness hangs in the column, but it's by and large clear; little head even with a hard pour

S: malty, sweet bread/biscuity ... almost like a donut shop

T: fruity, floral ... at times like an old ale (prunes, dates) including the first sip, but it tends to take on the light, fruity sweet notes of an English pale ale; little hop presence

F: watery and slick with little carbonation; that hard pour robs it too much

O: it's got lots of sweet malt notes, especially in the nose, but overall it's underwhelming. better dunkels surely exist.

Poured from a flip-top ceramic capped bottle into a pint glass. A clear amber color, off white head with a bot of sticky lacing on the glass.

Aroma is sweet and bready malts. Taste is similar to smell. A nice light malty beer with a bit of bitterness in the finish to counter the mild sweetness.

Mouthfeel is light and crisp with a nice balance between the more dominant maltiness and the slight bitterness in the finish. Would b e a very good session beer.

Overall a pretty good brew.

I am no expert but I do appreciate premium lagers...This Dunkel is up there in the outstanding category to me...It does lack a bit in the area of bitterness...and could use more of the burnt flavor...A good beer...and I do like drinking and serving it..

This was my after tour sample at the brewery in Flensburg (home of the "PLOP"). It is a wonderful dark beer with a wonderful nutty aroma and nice dark malt taste. It has a nice creamy head and goes well with the bread, meat, fish and cheese they served with it. I was impressed with this beer as it did not seem to have the bitterness of most dark beers that pour almost black. A nice balance of malt to hops. All in all a really nice beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 33 cl bottle, into a pilsner.

A: Medium-dark brown. Pours about a 2 finger, frothy, white head. Craters slowly and unevenly leaving dry residue behind. Lots of beer ring lacing.

S: Tea leaves, molasses, and light roasted malt grain.

T: Bitter pecan shells, a little light roasted malt grain, and tea leaf.

M: Hearty yet crisp. Slightly bitter finish.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, giant head and plenty of lacing. Nose is a really solid combination of sweet components on a roasted malt bed. Flavor is light roasted malt with a little bitterness. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

No complaints here with this brew. One high tech package with the bottle but form a beer drinkers perspective it certainly lives up to a premium beers reputation. Mild yet tasty. Which is why people drink beverages. For the taste and this brew did itself justice in that category.
