COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Surprisingly sweet and malty, I’d not had this style, but love this brewery. Pours clear light brown, with off-white head quickly disappearing. Aroma is sweet caramel and malt. Flavor is more of the same, with just a mild balancing bitter. Finishes clean, wanting more.

Bomber into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium brown, with a small white head that quickly fades. Nose is faint aroma of caramel and coffee. Taste is dark roast malt with coffee undertones. Nice.

gripweed57 (917) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 8, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark Amber, brownish color with a thick Rocky beige head and nice clinging lace. Rich malty nose is reminiscent of brown butter and toasted grain. Soft sweet toasted malt flavor has a buttery, nutty character. Dry finish. Nice balance and complexity. An outstanding Munich dark lager that is den initiate of the style.

Cristobal37 (339) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - MAY 7, 2015
A nice toasty brown lager. Really light body with only faint hints roasted malt and sweet toffee. Perhaps it sat in the fridge for too long because I remember the beer having more character in the past. Nevertheless a decent German dunkel.

Bottle from Beer Store Malvern. Thick roasted malts, oak, chocolate, coffee grinds, plum. Balanced malted goodness. Starts out like a standard dunkel but eventually it becomes pretty obvious this is a special brew.

Dark brown colour with light brown head. Aroma od roasted malted barley plums, with coffee notes. Low carbonation, well balanced bitterness, with sweet fruity finish. For sure one of the best dunkel beers.

I have definitely never had a dunkel this good before. Didn’t even know they could be this good. Like the perfect session beer. A hint of roast and nice crisp barley. Pours dark brown with good creamy head and lacing. Crisp and light bitter finish. Wonderful balance and full of flavor. Thick consistency. Near perfect German beer. Bottle.
