A German "Dunkel" (dark) brewed as a Lager with Two Row Malt, Munich Malt and some Roasted Malts. Spiced up with German Hops from the Hallertau and a German Lager Yeast gives this Brew a nice dunkel (dark) color and some Malt sweetness with a nice finish of balanced Hops and a little chocolaty taste for the finish.

Draft at Flying Saucer Addison. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of Munich malts with a hint of roast. Lighter side of medium bodied with a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor of dark german malts countered by a soft spicy bitterness. Cocoa and nut notes on the finish. Pretty solid for a Dunkel.

dyetube (1345) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2010
This beer pours black with a medium beige head that lasts. The aromas are light chocolate and malt. The flavors are light chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Overall an average beer, but quite drinkable.

On tap at Ginger Man Fort Worth. It looks nice, but there is not much there as far as smell OR taste goes...pretty bland.

BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2010
On draft at Irish Rover. Dark brown pour with amber highlights. Slight roasted malt aroma. Slight chocolate and roasty flavors. Thin body with little carbonation. Short, clean, mild bitter finish. Looks good, smells kinda bleh and tastes like the aroma.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 5, 2009
On tap at the Franconia Brewery. Dark pour with a creamy brown head. I can’t smell anything. Taste isn’t very pleasant, but kinda weak. Roasted malts and maybe some chocolate.

(Draught) pours very dark even for a dunkel with nice light tan head and big oily bubbles. Nose is very faint on this one, I’m getting some lightly toasted malts. Taste has more flavor, semi-sweet chocolate and creamy but it’s watery and kind of disappoints. An odd bitter in the finish and undercarbonated in my opinion. A solid beer but nothing more I can say about it.

Cavie (4043) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2009
UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 Clear dark rose color. Creamy head that sits. Very little aroma to speak of. Creamy mouthfeel with a restrained taste. Roasted malts are the main thing tasted but it remains mostly tasteless. Slight bittering finish but still doesn’t go anywhere. I was highly disappointed with this one. Not much happening here at all. 2.1
RE-RATE 4/9/11 Tap at the brewery. The beer pours a dark brown color, almost black. Tan head. Looks very nice.

Dark malts and chocolate cocoa greet the nose for this one. Roasted malts as well. I am certainly liking what I’m seeing so far!

Smooth mouthfeel. Roasted taste that is quite malty and grainy. Dark chocolate rounds things out. There is a slight ash in the aftertaste but certainly not anything to be upset over.

Pours medium brownish with a small head. Smell was a bit roasty, nutty, and light chcolate. Taste was mildly chocolatey with caramel a pretty smooth body. Earthy, perhaps a bit of yeast, but not a ton of flavor to it. Somewhat mild and had a thinnish body and normal to light carbonation. Not bad, but unexciting, I thought.
