COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brevard Brewing Company’s darkest beer--finally, a welcome alternative to the mandatory Porter found in nearly every craft brewery line-up in the country.  Dunkel literally means "dark" in German, but don’t let the dark color fool you.  This is still a German lager beer.  While chocolate malt and an abundance of German Munich malts provide a solid malt backbone, the medium body and lager fermentation make this beer surprisingly drinkable.  If a Porter and an Oktoberfest had a baby, this would be it.  Tastes like a dark beer, but drinks like a Pilsner.

Thanks to Dave for this one. Pours out a light reddish color with a small off white head. Aroma is of some light fruit, dough, mild sweetness. Taste is odd, caramel, mild tartness, bread, light spice. Eh, rather generic.

Sample @ RBWG, Asheville. Brown pour with a tight tan head. Toasted brown bread and a bit of vanilla. Quite nutty, autumnal red fruits. Taste of toasted raisin bread. Creamy malt backbone. Light caramel. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Leighton (11322) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Draft at Appalachian Vintner during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear amber with a white foam head. Toasty bread on the nose, some caramel, too. Medium sweet flavor with more bread, light ripe fruits, toffee, faint leafy bitterness. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Good, moderately clean finish with nice toasty bread character, brown bread, dry caramel, mellow leaves. Pretty solid for the style.

dmac (4080) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at Appalachian Vintners. Clear orangey/deep amber body under an average sized foamy light beige head. Flavor and aroma of grains, toast, old chocolate and orange. Medium body with strong fizzt carbonation that was distracting. Meh, looks like im one of the few that didnt care for this.

phaleslu (6608) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Draft at Appalachian Vintner for RBWG. Pours a clear, deep gold-amber with a small beige head. Aroma of nuts, toasted and chocolate malts, straw, grass, earth, and dust. The flavor is the same, though just a little on the watery side. Light-medium bodied, with a dry, nutty, malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Deep amber pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is brown sugar, semi sweet malt. Flavor mirrors aroma with a touch of bitter that grows. pretty nice beer

>> Thank you jtclockwork for the pawn. Clear amber pour. Great lacing. Nose is nice honey and fresh malt, honey malt. Taste is gritty, oatmeal, somewhat vegetal from Vienna malt. Palate is thin, tangy, all raw malt. Paper finish. Still, not half bad for a near impossible style to enjoy.

Bottle - Lots of grain and toasted malt. Clear amber with a beige head. Grains, toasted malts and light cocoa. Alright, but nothing special.
