(code L1334 - Dec 2011? Dec 2013? when? - poured into a 20 oz British pint)

A: dark coppery hue, clear, with an attractive creme-colored head that slowly recedes, coating the glass with a sheet of foam film that gradually contracts into webby streaks... keeps a solid little collar around till the end

S: beautiful, bold, dark malts... mildly sweet, moderately toasty, chocolate-coated biscuit... roasted grain lurks beneath... undercurrent of apple-y fruitiness... overall, textbook aromas for the style

T: sweetish, toasty, cereal-like grain foundation... balanced, soft, rounded roastiness... fairly assertive hop/roast bitterness... perhaps a touch smoky in the finish... lightly nutty, chocolaty aftertaste

M: feels a notch or two lighter than it should... very pleasing medium-bodied core... perfect degree of fade-away dryness in the finish to compliment the initial swell of fullness

O: I'm actually a bit surprised how damn good this is... dopplebock flavors at dunkel lager strength... I could easily drink a whole Maß of this... can't always judge a beer by its label

Pours amber dark black/brown. Minimal head with some subtle lacing and some fairly nice carbonation. It actually looks like a darker colored beer I might reach for on a hot day.

Smell has some roasted oats and toffee notes. With some slightly burnt brown sugar notes. It's subtle but still good. Not overly assertive or offensive in any area.

Taste reminds me why I like this style. Creamy, toffee, slight nuttiness, with a hint of dark fruit. Subtle chocolate/roasted coffee beans. Light in the taste and mouth-feel with is very pleasant. Fair amount of carbonation makes this one very drinkable.

Overall, It's a great example of the style. A beer that someone exploring moving from weissbiers to porters/stouts should try. It's great for that roasted and dark beer craving that you can get on those particularly hot days.

4.8% ABV per the label.

Pours a clear dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt and roasted nut aromas. Taste is much the same with toasted malt and metallic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with some solid toast and roast aromas and flavors.

Poured a finger and half of head on a red to brown colored body.
The aroma is a sharp malt and grain with a touch of toffee. Quite nice.
The taste is well balanced. It has a nice malt side that is not overpowering due to a moderate pine bitterness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It is really enjoyable and drinkable.

Poured into a glass mug. Pours caramel brown with a soapy tan head. There are a moderate about of visible bubbles rising in the beer. I pick up aromas of roasted malts and some caramel sweetness that is almost chocolately in nature. The Munich malts come through well in the taste, bringing some nice breadiness to the table. There's some nice background sweetness that does remind me of chocolate. There's some hop bitterness in the back end, but mostly just for balance. The body is light to medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is crisp, but not clean. Some of that aftertaste does linger. The drinkability is high. This is an excellent beer and a fine example of a dunkel.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pilsner glass. Had a brown color and a clear consistency. There was an inch and a half of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Great lacing.

S: A kind of weak aroma of malt, caramel and that's about it.

T: Like the smell, the taste was pretty one-dimensional: Malt, caramel, and little else. This is a thin, watery flavor without much going on.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a somewhat thin finish. Medium-bodied.

O: This is an unfortunately mediocre beer that I forgot about the second I finished it.

Reutberger Export Dunkel has a thick, off-white head, and a dark, clear, copper appearance, with some streaming bubbles. The aroma is very sweet and malty, and it has almost a cane syrup aspect. Taste is medium-roasted, sweet, syrupy barley malt, a bit of turned fruit, and a slight hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Reutberger Export Dunkel finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is an excellent beer.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Bright brown with ruby red undertones. No head. Medium opacity and light bubbles.

Smell: Coffee. Nuts and dark fruits. Date. Apricots and wheat.

Taste: Maple syrup, tobacco and tart cherry. Chocolate finish with a lingering fruity sweetness. Unique array of roasted malt flavors. Bittering hops in the back give the beer a slight tingle.

Mouthfeel: Very carbonated, light but feel flavored.

Overall: A delicious high quality treat. Drinkable and full of flavor. My favorite Dunkel lager so far.

not a particularly chic style on BA for one reason or another still a great accompanyment with food. Pours like most every filtered german lager... Clear. Dark mahogany. Nose is predominantly toasty with a core meatiness of a mild sweet, as if an unsalted steak. Palate is toasty dry with a hint of fruit, not dessert like. Too dry to have a sweet side. Mineral clear finish. Notes of apple but grain foremost.

Would go well with buckwheat and liver sausage... Or pate at large.

1 pt 9oz bottle

Pours a mostly cloudy dark amber to brown with a light tan foamy head that was easily induced.

Smells of raisins and roasted malt.

The flavor is heavily malted with raisins and various berries. The profile is deep and hard to distinguish individual flavors, but enjoyable.

Medium body with light carbonation.

A pretty solid brew. The flavor is the high point of this brew which is by no means a bad thing. Worth giving it a try.

Poured from a half liter bottle into a pint glass. This beer is a clear copper color with a couple fingers of off-white head.

It has a nice roasted malt flavor, caramel and Munich malts probably. It has a pretty nice aroma in my opinion.

The taste is a lot of the same. Malty and roasted with definite caramel flavors.

A very nice drinkable tasty dunkel.

It poured a milk brown beer with a good slightly creamy head.
I smelled some residual sugar, caramel notes.
I tasted some sugar cane, malt, and a slight bitter hop at the finish. It was medium body and slightly creamy.
I would definitely drink again because it is a nice all around dunkel .
