3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear mahogany with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, sweet malt. Flavor of the same - rich caramel malt. Not too sweet, somewhat thin-bodied. Decent dunkel, there’s not much going on here but it doesn’t offend.

Pours a clear dark reddish brown. Aroma is of coffee an roasted grain. The taste is malt forward with a nice blend of hops to balance the sweetness of the malt. The finish is clean while not dry.

Great Beer. One of their regulars that are brewed all year long. Hoppy but not heavy. Just a great german fest type of beers. My favorite among their regulars. Even better on draft at the brewery!

Bottle. Amber through and through. That’s what this Dunkel reminded me of: a good old amber. Darker in appearance with a breadier filled aroma, but the taste was hop laced with a roasted note in the middle, bitter finisher.

Pours dark red with little to no white head, aroma has notes of some slight caramel, spice, earth, some slight buttery notes. Taste is some weird buttery notes, with a touch of caramel, spice, some bread. Ok, but definitely a bit off.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to Tedwarhc for this bottle. Served in a tulip.
Pours a bright light copper-brown color with a very, very thin white head and only a bubble or two on top after a few seconds. No lacing. The nose brings some light caramel and bread crust along with faint earthy hops. Flavor is a nice combination of lightly-toasted bread and very mild caramel along with a touch of sweetness and light hops. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation; fairly chewy. Refreshing bitterness on the back-end. Good brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours brownish from tap with a thin note of caramel on the nose. There’s a slight estery note on the tongue but it’s buried down pretty deep.
