2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild musty aroma of toasted malt. Flavor is about the same. Thin body and a slightly bitter finish. Glad I tried it, but probably wouldn’t choose it again.

This is a rich brown lager with a thin white head. It has a faint hops aroma that is almost buried under the malt that eminates from this beer. This beer tastes well enough on its own, but pair it with some lightly spicy food and hold on! The beer comes alive. The sweetness is more pronounced, and the ability of this beer to cleanse the palate is simply amazing.

Solid Dunkel; but nothing stands out that would make me buy again really. One nice aspect is that it has a fuller mouthfeel than most in the style.

Old bottle 05 pours lively with a beige foam that quickly fades to a lone foam
island bombarded with mini tsunamis at each sip.Color:amber to brown leaning towards brown. Nice malt aroma,caramel and toffee.Taste very rich caramel flavor with some brown sugar sweetness.Not a big fan of german lagers this struck me more as a brown ale or a scottish ale.The age has rid it of all traces of hop and made it a easy drinker.

Oh my! What a nice beer. Very good roasted taste and smell, but the hops are not overpowered by it.

Nice colored pour, very nice head. Flowers and malt fill the nostals and the flavor is smooth and malty. Not crazy about the lack of power on this dunkel, but it’s a great dark.

On tap in the Church. I thought the color was medium brown and not as dark as some other dunkels I have tried. Flavor was smooth and balanced. Palate was fairly light. The finish was clean.

On tap at the brewery. Nice off-brown amber pour. Thin hoppish malty aroma. Chocolate milk. Dry malty fortaste and a hoppy spiced slightly bitter back taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Good amber/brown color. Decent head that doesn’t last too long. Malty and nutty flavor. Finishes somewhat dry. An overall acceptable beer. Looking forward to drinking this when it’s hot.
