Dunkel is the German word for "Dark", referring to the rich mahogany color of this malt-dominated lager. Brewed with a large portion of Munich malt, this beer is solf and mellow with a medium body and delicate nose.

Sample at the Bend brewpub. The beer is a dark brownish-amber color with a medium light beige head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, ripe fruit and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap in Bend. Pours a clear dark mahogany color with a medium beige head. A light fruity malty nose. Mild toffee, bready, light fruity hops. Solid. Very light.

Dark mud brown. Thin off white head. Dark Lagers are not too high on my list, this one was quite alright but nothing to get revved up about. Id take it over a Pale Lager any day. Tastes sort of woody and earthy, caramel, some roasted malts and milk chocolate. A wee bit burnt and smokey too. Lightly peppy bubble time fun unit.

Sub-par attempt at a German dunkel, brown but not quite roasty and/or nutty enough. A good intro to the style, but pales in comparison to the German original.

Deep copper, clear, off-white head. Low aroma of neutral malt. Flavor: malty balance with bready Munich malt, just enough bitterness to balance it, clean lager character. Well made dunkel.

on tap-pours a light brown head and mahogany color. Aroma is mild medium/dark malt-roasty. Taste is medium/dark malt-chocolate/roasty/some peat, secondary earthy hops. Finishes somewhat dry.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2010 From a draft pour at the Bond Street brewpub in Bend, this poured a clear cross between amber and brown with an off white head and very good lacing The nose is caramel malts. Medium body and mouthfeel. The flavor is strongly of malts and finish is mild and sweet. Not complicated but easy drinking and enjoyable.

1/1/08 with Bikesanbeer, and Deschutes was open even though we thought we it wouldnt be open till the next day, 6th brewery of the trip. Pours dark amber brown. Nose has some nice light sweetness in it. Taste is sweet, slick and overall a pretty nice dunkel. The name seemed fitting for the trees we saw driving into bend.

... sure... darker mahogony body. Aroma is dark bread and sugars with caramel and a hint of spicy hops. Flavor is fairly delicate with a faint hint of metal. Lightly sweet, medium to light bodied. A fairly accurate and enjoyable Dunkel... but not perfect either.
