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.

Has a nice malty aroma upon opening with a touch of spice. Thick mocha colored head on top of a dark copper colored pour. Nice blend of maltiness with trailing hop bitterness. Very full bodied flavor - finishes strong. Very impressed with Capital thus far.

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.

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!

This seemed more like a Schwarzbier than a dunkel. Aroma of peaches and honey. Very dark brown with red on the edges. A light and slightly sour taste of toast and lemons. Has the typical cheesy after taste that Capitals tend to have.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice woody amber brown- modest off white head and some solid lace. Aroma is nice nutty toasty malts, light dry dusty chocolate malts, and a sharp black malt character that lends lamost a light metla hint. toasty and bready malts, burnt toast is obvious, light sweetness, some nutty chocoalte and a drying earthiness in the end. Light body and mouthfeel even for the styl,e, but still pretty close to being very traditional. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Chestnut color with a beige moderate head. Malthouse and brewhouse malt aromas. Smooth and malty. I have had this in the past and do not recall it being this malty. Very dry finish, with just a touch of hops bite. I'm going to look for this one on tap.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This brew poured a small head of fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a transparent carbonated brown colored body. It has a slightly bubbly mouthfeel that smoothend in its finish. The flavor is mostly sweet malt with very little "brown" beer feeling to it. This beer needs mor character and flavor than it has.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
