COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beau’s “Dunkel Buck” is brewed in the Dunkel Weizenbock style – a strong, dark version of a traditional Bavarian wheat beer. This cloudy, dark and unfiltered wheat beer displays intriguing clove and banana aromas. The flavours follow, while adding in a chocolate and mocha undercurrent. The beer finishes dry with a slightly tart spiciness, and the alcohol is moderately warming.

A clear brown dunkel with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nice dark fruits with smooth vanilla. In mouth, sweet fruity malt with plums, molasses, a bit watery but still solid after two years.

Tasted in August 2011. Aroma: Molasses, jujube, candied sugar. Appearance: Hazy amber, small and fast fading head. Taste: Molasses is coming back with a nice bitterness and a smooth feeling of malty and caramel notes. Flavors are missing a bit of definition but good product.

Bottle. Another forgotten gem discovered in the back of my stash - I’m guessing it’s more than a year old based on when it was originally released, but it’s still in quite good shape. Pours a dark amber-brown with a very slight haze - well, initially slight, at least - after the first slow pour, I poured the last 1/4 or so into a separate glass, and it was quite hazy, even a bit chunky, so the yeast obviously settled during its unintentional aging. Aroma has a subtle port-like character that could’ve come from oxidization, along with the clove promised by the description, a hint of banana, and some tart fruitiness. Flavour starts a bit tart and spicy before some lovely chocolate-malt comes through, followed by a more prominent tartness in the back of the throat. Also something herbaceous in there that I can’t quite place - coriander, maybe? Whatever, in a nice note to finish on. I don’t know if this beer was intended to be aged, but it certainly held up very nicely.

Big bottle, from my fridge. Whee!!! Clear deep red, large fizzy lasting off-white head. Sweet, lightly nutty aroma, a bit of banana and other fruit - nice. Taste follows, less sweet, a bit sweaty, more spice and yeast - not much alcohol. Light body, airy but not overly carbonated, gets a little earthy and herbal in the finish. Very nice, simple beer.

600mL bottle from the LCBO. Poured cold, a murky dark brown with a fine 1.5cm whitish head, not as frothy as some German versions. Aroma sweet, dominated by banana and caramel malts, just a little roasted. Also some bready yeast and spices, a little clove. Taste is dark malt and fruit, banana especially, a little spice, a woody note, fairly dry finish. Medium bodied, very soft carbonation but not as creamy as it could be. A little more dubbel-ish than German versions I’ve tried, prefer a Weihenstephan but this is a good effort.

Sammy (8523) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2012
marginal beer, Pours lighter brown body with 3/8" of retained head, after warming up to room temperature. The taste is mildly astringent roast malt, overcarbonated. Some bleach smell (not my Spearhead cup, but the bear) LCBO, but a bomber is way too much so most of it found its way down the drain, and I am shocked they just produced a barrel aged version for their special reserve series, but we are open minded.

Dark brown pour with a creamy head. Aroma is clove and bubblegum with some banana esters floating around. Flavor is malty and fruity. Haven’t had a beer of this style in a while but this is a darn fine example. Very tasty.

[3960-20110910] 600mL bottle. Boozy petrol malt grass aroma. Murky, dark brown amber body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. More charred grass malt in the flavour. Medium body. Interesting to sample. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2-
