This beer is NOT RETIRED. I found a new can, under the name of Harboe DARK in Shanghai China.

A: Poured from the 500mL can. The beer is a cola color with an offwhite to light tan head that is fizzy and sticks around an ok amount for the style.

S: Light aroma of dark bread and slight sweetness but not much else.

T: Roasted malt and some bread but not much else in there.

F: The beer is a bit thin

Overall: This beer should have stayed retired. Not much character here, and what remains is kind of a jumbled mess. won't pick up again.

The colour is pale brown; the liquid clear. The low off white head slowly sinks down slowly, leaving some lacing. Too pale…

The smell is mild. Butter, semi-sweet malt and some earthy hints.

The taste is earthy, roasted with lots of diacetyl. I found some notes of hazelnuts and dough. The aftertaste is malty and a bit dry.

The carbonation is quite mild; lots of small bubbles. The liquid is a bit viscous.

The fact that a Danish major makes a Dunkel is interesting. The beer isn’t.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

A: Deep golden brown with practically no head and light lacing.
S: Sweet malt smell with a strange light malt smell.
T: Blah. Very unsweet, dirt-like flavor.
M: A kick in the mouth. Like trying to down carbonated water. Medium to light body.
D: I would have a hard time drinking too much of this as it is not tasty and it bothers my tongue.
