On tap at the brewery. Pours a very dark brown with ruby highlights when held to the sun. Lots of chocolate/mocha/coffee flavors and a nice roasty aroma. Mouthfeel is a bit creamy due to low carbonation level. One of the best dunkels I have had and one of my favorites from this brewery.

Namespayne (56) - - DEC 2, 2014
12 oz bottle --> pint glass. Four fingers of head after just half a pour. Dark brown, almost opaque. Balanced hoppy aroma with notes of toffee and pecan for nose and taste, nice and smoky with notes of caramel on the palate. Not too bitter, good balance, just dry enough. Sessionable and surprisingly decent for what it is. Don't sell it short, this one's a sleeper. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark brown color, medium off white head. Aroma of roasty cocoa. Taste is sweet, malted milk balls. OK.

degbert (1201) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with a creamy, tan, fine-grained head. Nose is coffee, steamed okra, and a light gravy or broth. Good flavor -- roasted grain, cafe au lait, and smoke -- but relatively light body, although the mouthfeel is pleasantly creamy. Finish is long, clean, and simple. It won’t rock your world, but it’s a nice dunkel.

Pours a dark brown with off-white head. Spice, roasted malt, and some caramel on the nose; follows onto the palate. An average dunkel.

artmcd8 (1801) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle thanks to fiveacestx. medium brown pour with an off white head. Nutty aromas of a typical Dunkle. Sweet taste that finishes clean. Usually don’t like this style but this was in line more with a nut brown.

Gvaughn (22) - Texas, USA - APR 7, 2014
Light brown with light tan head that dispersed quickly. Carbonation seems on the low side, but may be appropriate for the style. This beer has a lightly sweet grainy malt taste with minimal bittering. Body was thinner than I had anticipated. This is a very easy drinking beer. Overall I enjoyed it and would have another.
