3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
draught at cafe volo. mahogany colour with a persistent fluffy tan head. rich malty aroma, yeast, and some sweetness and spice. creamy body. flavour is mainly of malt, some caramel sugary sweetness. I quite enjoyed this dunkel. I remember walking by Denison’s on Victoria over two years ago and not going in, about two weeks later it closed shop and I missed out on all that great beer! Great to know that Michael Hancock is still reviving his great brews.

on tap at volo. cask days 2008. taps lovely brown with a thick tan head. the aroma is chewy malt with some bread and dark fruit. flavours are very malt driven but i found this to be a little thin and somewhat lacking in the flavour department. everything that was supposed to be there was but this brew just didnt wow like i was hoping it would. ill have to try a bigger serving of this and let it warm right up to really get a feel for the brew.

On tap at beerbistro. Pours a clear reddish brown with small tan head. Aroma of caramel, nuttiness and a bit of dark fruit. Nuttiness is more pronounced in the flavour and has a bit of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Nice.

Beer sampling at beerbistro in Toronto on saturday night. I was told to look for Denisons Weissbier unfortunatly this is as close as I would come. But this is enjoyable in its own right. Pours a nice brown and tastes of dark fruit, brown sugar, nuttiness, with a hoppy finish. it was lighter than it looks and very nice

On tap at the Magpie. Ruby-brown with great lacing. Lovely aroma of toast, dark roasted fruit, and a little chocolate. The flavour has chocolate, lots of caramel malt, roasted nuts, and enough hops at the end to make it interesting. Full body, nice carbonation.
