crossovert (10050) - Illinois, USA - MAR 15, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 11.2 oz green bottle, I’m hoping for no skunkage. It pours a dark brown with a hint of reddich/orange/gold. The head is fizzy and off-white. The smell is classic, no skunk here. It has caramel, cocoa, and dark bread. Along with this is some honey and some light husky grain. I’m not really smelling any hops. The flavor is excellent, everything you want in a dunkel. It is smooth and caramally with some cocoa, raisin, and munich malts. The hops are present in the flavor and add a little zest to it. It is extremely drinkable. A winner.

Dogbrick (10033) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 12, 2002
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Dark brown color with virtually no head. Very little flavor, just a little malt with a pinch of hops. Unimpressive.

Bottle. Light molasses malt and vinegar aroma. Light clear brown color with small head. Strong dark malt flavor - slightly burnt flavor - strong acidity and moderate carbonation - tastes much stronger than the aroma and appearance would lead you to believe. A perkier dunkel - much more sharp tasting than is typical for the style.

DocLock (8797) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Pours dark brown with aroma of some dark malt, slight nuts and chocoff. Light palate, and lacking in balance and complexity.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2007
Dark brown, golden at the edges, average whitish head. Sweet caramel aroma, perhaps a little bready. Straightforward caramel malt palate, brown sugar perhaps. Not bad, flavourful but not terribly complex. Maybe mine was too cold...

j12601 (8050) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Bottle. Pours an almost cola brown, which was an ironic bit of foreshadowing, with a thin white head. Aroma of very sweet malt, and little else. The slight malt taste carries over to the mouth where it is joined with a good deal more soda like sweetness and an incredibly thin watery body. Finish is a bit of a letdown too, and features a slight metallic tang.

marcus (8010) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 29, 2007
This brown ale poured with a miniscule tan head. There is a sweet caramel malt flavor, with a slightly bitter finish. A very undistinguished dunkel beer.

"tried this once when the mood hot for a malty dark. not bad, not great. it satisfied the craving. about average for the style, but i generally like dunkels, so it’s an above average beer. a little on the unassuming side."

Draft at Prost. Big off-white head, nice deep brown, ruby-toned body. Clean and straightforward and easy to drink like a lager, but also somewhat unsatisfying that way with such a light body--the lager dilemma (you have to be in the mood, probably). Very thin flavor, but still tasty enough if you take a big pull from the glass.
