3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BevMo in Fairfield, CA. Pours a brown color and smelled of roasted malt. I’ve usually a fan of roasty malt flavor, but I felt it was a bit unbalanced. I was expecting a little more sweet, but all I got was roasted nut flavor. Not great, but still pretty good.

Mahogany. Caramel malt aroma and flavour, and a slightly sweet taste with low bitterness. Overall, a good dunkel. Beautifyl color, but not as tasty as I had hoped.

On tap at the Ayinger pub in Munich. Always a bit lighter than I remember these dunkels, this a reddish mahogany rather than a chestnut brown. White foam. Nicely balanced, sweet but not overly toasty malts, balanced nicely, clean. Solid dunkel.
