My second visit to Dry Dock featured three new seasonal brews, including the flippantly named Dunkelstiltskin – the token lager of the bunch, though by far the most enviably named. The Dunkelstiltskin came after a glass of the dragonbreath Old Bligh’s, unfairly muting some of the crisper and cleaner lagers taste, but there was plenty to spare. The head is smooth and hypnotizingly soft, characteristic of nitrogen carbonation, and the body glows with a deep pomegranate color. The nitrogen beats down the aroma, and curbs the Dunkels creative expression, but the flavor does not suffer from the same complaints. The crisp body of a lager mingles with the heady flavors of peat, coffee and richly caramelized malts. While the body suggests this would make an excellent lawn mower beer, I see it as more of an aperitif, or even a nightcap – deep flavors that can stand on there own, but light and refreshing for closing out the day. Another solid brew from Dry Dock.

Draft at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a medium off white head, with slight lacing, over a clear dark amber (SRM 10) body....nose is heavy malt, chocolate, with cereal tones.....taste is malts, cereal, light dried fruits. This meets the style quite nicely. BJCP 7/3/13/4/6

On tap at Hops and Pies poured a clear clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of carmel, toasted malt and light dried fruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toasted malt and a hint of fruittiness with a crisp lingering carmel finish.

Clear nutty brown with a thin white head. Great malty chocolate aroma. Taste was dunkel-tastic with soft chocolate malt tones, with even biscuity/wheaty tones, with a gentle noble hop character. More of an American Brown Ale. Tasty brew!

Tap @ brewery. Pretty transparent, amber brown appearance with a brown head. Roasty, nutty, and a very slight smoky aroma. Sweet, nutty, a touch burnt, quite malty brown lager flavor with a hint of fruits. Smooth, easy dunkel. I wish more microbreweries produced solid dunkels like this one.

Tap at the brewery - clear dark chestnut - creamy mouthfeel, medium body - rich munich maltiness - complex flavors of chocolate, roasted nuts, toasty malts, vanilla - these heavier, earthier notes are tempered by the moderate fruitiness of hallertau hops - lingering vanilla and hazelnut in the finish - this is a dope-ass dunkel.
