Without a doubt the finest dark beer brewed in the United States. Styled after a traditional Munchener-Dunkel, Dark is a rich, delicious beer combined with excellent drinkability - a rare combination.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Deep rustic red hue with a off-white head and some lace. Aroma hints of roasted malts, molasses, caramel, aromatic hops and fig. Minor sweetness on top of a creamy and soft mouthfeel. Undertone of bitterness and crisp finish. Enjoyable beer, not a world beater but nice overall.

Strykzone (5901) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2008
Dark brown and amber color with a tan head. Aroma is not substantial but is well balanced with some nuts and caramel. Flavor offers roasted notes and dark fruit. The hop provides a nice depth to the flavor and acts as ying to the mat yang. Great balance. Dry bitterness. A very well crafted beer.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Very nice interpretation of a Munchener-Dunkel, a deep reddish-brown brew with a lofty, creamy tan head. The aroma is great, lightly roasted malt, sweet with caramel and a dab of butterscotch, and quite fruity for a lager. The flavor drops a notch, yet remains enjoyable. Rich caramel, brown sugar sweetness, burnt toast, and some faint hopping to help balance it out. I probably won’t be sharing this six-pack.

notalush (5514) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a dark reddish brown - a solidly made dunkel - roasted nuts, toffee, and dark bread throughout, with balancing a acidity, mild bitterness, and an earthy, leafy character - full, creamy texture - crusty pumpernickel finish - solid.

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2007
Picked up single bottle from Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN. Pours a dark burnt brown brew with an off-shite head. Slowly dissolving and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is thick, roasted grain, nuts, some chocolate, molasses and caramel. Taste is full bodied and sweet. Finish is like molasses with a dry aftertaste. Another excellent brew from Kirby!

Sampled at 10/13/2012 at GABF. This Dunkel pours a medium amber color from the tap. Large to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, bready and sweet. A medium bodied Dunkel. The malts are caramel, bready and sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy. Nice carbonation. Nice balance. A crisp and clean, slightly sweet Dunkel. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. The aftertaste is slightly bitter.
