At first glance, this really looked and smelled like a bock beer.
Poured a light russet with a one finger head, light nutty aroma, slightly sweet. Taste delivered a medium bodied and malty presence up front, with a light sweetness lingering after. Body seemed more full than a typical dark lager, a vague richness that was more reminiscent of a bock than anything else.

Easy drinking, worth trying if you see it.

Appearance – This is a darkish orange with a head that poured well but went down quickly.

Smell – I like the nice, toasty, malty aroma here but it smells more like a German seasonal than a Dunkles.

Taste – This one is very malty and toasty with some good caramel and sugar sweetness to it. Again, more like an Oktoberfest or even a Maibock instead of a Dunkles.

Mouthfeel – Light to medium in the body and lip-smackingly sweet.

Drinkability – It may not be a Dunkel Lager but it wasn’t half bad.

The beer evacuates the 500ml brown bottle a clear burnished copper to almost brown with a moderate in size head that is frothy in texture and tan in color with the resultant lace a thin and obfuscating sheet. Nose is sweet malt, hints of caramel; fresh and crisp, start is sweet with a fair to middling malt presence, the top light in feel. Finish is distinct in its acidity, the hops pleasantly spicy and the aftertaste very dry, a drinkable beer, nothing spectacular.

pours a dark copper color with a head that falls very quickly to the slightest lace, but left some on the glass.

the aroma is mostly malt with a slight hop in the back ground.

the flavor is mostly malt, with a good hop bitterness, little carmelly, minerally with a dry finish.

the mouthfeel is decent, not to watery for the low alochol.

very drinkable, but, nothing super special.

Not bad, but a painfully boring beer. Pours out to a medium reddish orange color, with a medium head of tan foam. No lace. Aromas of roasty malts, grain, corn. Not bad. Taste is bland and uneventful. A touch of hops is drowned out by medium bodied malts and a touch of roasted grain. Some sweetness is noted toward the finish, along with a caramel note, but for the most part, mildness rules this brew. Mouthfeel is slightly abrasive, but not offensive. Very watery. Drinkability is average. Nothing to seekout here, but porth a sampling.

A foamy blanket (which turns to dense clumps) of a head covers this beer. The color is a deep, chestnut brown. Smell is heavy of malt, and a bit spicy. Taste is initially very malty, and extremely sweet....nutty, and a little oily. This beer has plenty of character and was quite enjoyable.
(Other than the gov't warning, there was barely a word of english on the label)

TOPTOBA MAPKA,etc... CHARACTERS ON LABEL..TEMHE on front label TEMNE on back.... ?? Brewed in Zaporizhzhya, Ukraine (say that a few times). When the 500ml bottle is opened and poured, no foam = trouble, therefore a flat tasting brew. The color is a cloudy, deep, chestnut brown. Smell and tastes of heavy malt. Taste is also quite sweet, and almost nut-like. This "Dark beer" was not very good at all.

A decent offering from the Ukraine. Pours out to a dark amber in the glass with a very huge head. The aroma is that of a light malt and grain. The taste is good, with hints of caramel and lightly roasted malt. Fairly average, but tasted fresh. I'd drink it again.

Well...tell you the truth, I don't even think I had a true Dunkel yet...but if this is what it is supposed to be like, I don't think I'll be getting to many more. In the aroma is candy malts (found out what that was in a disciption) and light notes of maybe grapes and or cherries? That same candy malt flavor can be tasted on the palate...which I do not like, maybe it was over done or something. Be all and end all, unenjoyable for me...but I will try another Dunkel again sometime.
