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.

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.

A. Good colour and clarity for style with fair head retention.

S. Little smell, but nothing unpleasant.

T. Tastes good, but really a little thin, and not as full of flavour as I was expecting.

M. Not as smooth as I would have liked but pretty good to be fair.

O. I had quite high hopes for this, but it was really quite disappointing. Very easy to drink, and if it were on tap I could quite happily session it, but nothing to get excited about.

Hazy dark copper, with few floating particles. Made 2 fingers of fluffy head with medium retention and leaving marks in the glass.
Malty and grainy aroma.
Similarly flavor of toasted malts, toffee and grains, hints of earthy and herbal hops. Mildly bitter with an almost absent aftertaste that has its lingering taste.
Light body and low carbonation.
Didn’t like much the taste of raw malt on it, but has its own character.

This one was a nice deep copper color, topped off with a thick tan head, very fluffy and stuck around for a bit; there's some great lacing too. The body itself is clear with medium carbonation. Mild hop flavors are the first thing you taste, strong grass flavors come into play and the aroma is pretty much a copy of the flavors, wheat grass, hops, and a mild sweet smell all mixed into one. The taste is slightly bitter overall and its light bodied, plus its goes down pretty smooth.
