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.

Dark brown, smell of fresh grapes. Acidic taste, but great flavour. Great all-around beer!

Pours a clear, dark amber color with a big tan head that lingers. It leaves a fair amount of lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of malted barley. Very good malty flavor with a nice sweet fruity finish and no hop bitterness. This one is very smooth and highly drinkable.

Not outstanding, less flavorful than an excellent dunkel should be. Subtle. Not overpowering in the slightest.

Dry, chalky malty aroma. Very grainy taste with overtones of maple syrup and slight coffee. Very nice, but I don’t know if I’d call it complex, really, just a nice, well above average dunkel.

not the best choice to consume after a couple winter ales, i’m about malted out. this one has some additional depth tho, and perfumy richness to it. a chestnut amber presentation rather than the tootsie-roll brown typical of many dunkels. a lax head still sheets and undulates in pretty riverine wisps and oxbows. decent nose has well-worn leathery, earthy scotch peat and coffee tones. to visualize the fragrance in my mind, i pictured an ancient pillar of rotting pine trunk in a forest glade: sappy, lightning struck and bejeweled with mosses and flowers. then i pictured our office secretary naked, which really has nothing to do with any beer. like her, tho, this beer has a silky smooth body and light sweetness. and strangely i feel myself wanting more.

Dark brown, malty aroma, decent head, fairly decent roasted chocolatey flavor, light bodied, kinda watery, not much of a finish.

Very rich malt character some definite barly notes all around. I really like the mouthfeel. To be honest, I find this beer almost too drinkable. Esch sip makes me want to keep drinking without pause. Very well balanced and full of complexity. A good offering.
