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.

Poured out of a 12Oz Bottle. Has a dark brown color and really no head whatsoever. I smell caramel and some coffee notes. I taste some of what I smelled, also some chocolate and malt. It’s ok at best.

Nitro draft shaker at Anvil Pub in Dallas, Texas. The pour is a brown copper with a solid unmoving one inch tan head. The aroma is sweet vanilla caramel, along with a bit of office coffee. Basically coffee and cream. The taste is nutty caramel malt, sweet and not much else. The palate is the silky nitro smooth mouthfeel though still somewhat thin in the body. Cleanish sweet finish. This one didn’t totally do it for me.

Dark brown body. Smells like cereal, butter, and pecans. Flavor is more pecan, strong berry notes the diacetyl is too strong though.

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.

Bottle: (gusher.....dammit...) Pours a glass full of tan foam....with a slooooowly appearing dark brown liquid at the bottom....and so.....we wait..... Rich chocolate malt aroma.... Sweet caramel, dark chocolate malt, creamy flavour....Thick and full bodied.....worth the wait for the head to recede.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2015 Bottle. Looks like a dunkel, but tastes of almost nothing. Fizzy, no head at all. Not one I’d recommend. (Edit: a second bottle was more flavourful.)

"Pours a very dark brown colored body, small tan-white head, that leaves some ok lace. Aroma of coffee, earth, and chocolate, nice but a bit on the weak side.Flavors of coffee grounds, and some earthiness and milk chocolate notes, especially as it warms up. Like the aroma its a bit watery, not bad though.

Bottle. Coffee, chocolate malt and hay aroma. Dark brown with large tan head. Sweet chocolate malt and moderately bitter herbal quinine flavor. Good body. Good - very hoppy for a dunkel.

Draft on the brewery tour: Poured a marbled brown with an off white to light beige head. Aroma is roasted malts and sweet. Taste is nice blend of toffee, caramel, and roasted malts. There is nothing better than drinking a fresh dunkel at the source.
