Pours a ruby brown color with a thin white head. Aroma is chocolate, cherries and malt. Flavor is a bit toasty and biscuity with some sweet malt notes. Pretty watery mouthfeel though. Passable beer.

Getting notebook online. Bottle. Pours bland, not anything special. Smell has sweet hints. Taste has cherry flavors, very dry. A little too dry for my taste.

12 oz bought from Grocery Outlet,Salem,OR.
Dark brown beer, with a lovelly looking ,thick,light tan head.
Ok malty aromas, sweet malts, a little boozy?
Nice semi-sweet malty flavours, bittersweet chocolate flavours in the end., slightly toasty.
Pretty darned good on the palate, light but still tasteful.Not a bad dunkel, drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a dark copper with a very quickly dissappearing yellowy creme head. aroma is roasted nuttiness, some chocolate, some malt, a touch of greens/herbs, gentle whiskey, and some caramel. taste is a little coffee bean, a little green pepper, toast, and just a bit sour. mid-light bodied with light prickly carbonation. dries out nicely at the finish. to me, dunkels are kindof a crapshoot, and this one was just okay. not amazing, but a decent session beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark caramel nose with a chocolate hint. A mahogany color with a beige head that didn’t stick. Near medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is much of a porter - some lightly toasted malt and some coffee. The finish is neither here nor there, and there’s not much bitter. Still, it drinks rather well. After taste is a bit burnt. Not necessarily a bad thing.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I’ve had my eye on this brewery for quite some. Every time I go to my local BevMo I see these guys, usually on sale. So I decide I’m gonna plunk down $6 and get a sixer of this "Select Dunkel" and see what it’s about. Well, it’s about garbage for damn sure, and I don’t know how I’m going to choke down the rest of this crap. An aroma of boiling corn, combined with some kind of rotted sweetness. The aroma alone made me want to stay far away, but I figured I’d poured it so I better give it a chance. Appearance was cola-like in appearance, clear, minimal carbonation, off-white head. My first taste of this beer was soap. Pure soapyness. Then came the corn. Mmmmm. Soap and corn. Stay far far away from this garbage, as there is nothing "select" about this dunkel.
