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.

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.
