COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yearn for a classic Bavarian dark? Our Dunkles is brewed using only the finest roasted malts to give this lager its full dark color. Rich and smooth, yet contains no more alcohol than our Pilsener. The true classic from Munich with a subdued bitterness and roasty sweetness.

Formerly Das Bierhaus Munich Dunkel.

felsenpils (95) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
This is what you want when searching for a dark lager. Very malty and roasted, but not overly. Well balanced and pure, at least as good or better than any that I have tasted in Bavaria.

BVery (5616) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Tap at Das Bierhaus on Nov. 18, 2011. Renamed to Slam Dunkel. Hazy deep amber pour with a white head. Sour cherry elements along with caramel malt. Nice dunkel.

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2010
On tap at the brewpub - Pours dark cola with a foamy tan head. Sweet breadiness on the nose, with a touch of honey and dark chocolate. Big, rich and malty flavor, nutty, with a bit of caramel and a kiss of hops on the finish. Really creamy, but slightly watery in the mouth. Not as good as the pilsener that I had before it, but solid nonetheless.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2009
Sampled on draught: Poured a sort of murky brown. I love how the beers are unfilitered leaving tons of crap floating around. Aroma was again sort of sour, but a pleasent sour reminiscent to tart cherry. Taste was a bit tart with soft spice mid way through the palate. Finishes long and satisfying.

Tripplebrew (767) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Pours a brown sugar amber with very light head. Aroma is almond/hazelnut with vanilla nuts. Flavor is nutty fruit and hops (citrus notes). Body is creamy light with mild carbonation.

WisconsinBeer (700) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2009
Deep orange color. Sour wheat notes and citrus zest. Light bodied. A fair representation of the style.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Sampler. Aroma is nutty, caramel, a bit of smoke. Almost perfect flavor. Excellent.

tennisjoel (1154) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Ordered this at the brewpub as part of a sampler. Aroma: nutmeg, roasted nut, and maple syrup. Very smooth palate and easy drinking. A rich malty beer and a good one.

Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2008
July 2nd, 2008 Sample platter. Roasted, almost nutty aroma with a hint of smoke. Creamy head atop a hazy brown brew. Light smokey taste with a even lighter bitter finish. Excellent balance. Medium bodied. True to style. Another great beer from Das Bierhaus.

akevitt (97) - Valhalla, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2008
Sep 29, 2007 Draught at the brewpub. The beer was dark brown with a small amount of foam. In the flavor and aroma I got burnt malt/caramel malt along with some alcohol.
