This is a good beer, but it gets a slightly lower ranking because I don’t think it quite fits the style of a true dunkel. It is not over hopped, a good thing, but the use of chacolate malt is a little over powering for this style. Solid beer, good for drinking at the end of a meal, dry enough for oysters, but solid beer.

Tap. Pours clear black, minimal head or lacing. Aroma is roasty, a hint smoky, touch of rubber, burned malts. Flavor is light plus sweet, roasty, no rubber here, pretty solid actually. Medium body.

At the brewhouse: pours black with a tan head. Aroma is light chocolate with some malt. Taste is the same. Of all their beers this was not too bad, but still rather unimpressive. Meh.
