3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

The aroma of this is malts and grainy. The flavor is malty with some grainy sweetness. Overall this was solid dunkel, easy to drink, not very complex but still very good.

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.

3.6 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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
2004 or 2005 bottle big thanks to Robertsreality, this was awesome! Light caramel/muted-nut-brown with some light oak tones on the edges. Light beige/dark-eggshell head recedes fairly rapidly to ring. Only lightly filtered. Rich 2-row and munich malt aroma is immediately perceived. Dark, rich, soily black earth, with some light vinous notes. Flavor has a fantastic amount of malt. Caramel, brown bread dough. Rich dark sugar and caramelized honey. Rich English toffee. But through all of the richness, it is horribly drinkable! Lightly yeasty, dry earthy notes on end. Low hops bitterness and flavor. Natural mouthfeel with low carbonation, very aerated texture. I could definitely stand to drink this as my session beer day in and day out. Bits of berry skins linger with some leafy, foresty hops flavor.

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.
