COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the city it calls home, this German style Lager has a distinguished dark appearance and a notably smooth sweet balanced flavor. The result gives our Dunkel a flavor of toasted bread and a malty finish.

12 ounce bottle into pilsener glass, bottled on 9/16/2011. Pours fairly crystal clear red amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of pear, apricot, caramel, toast, molasses, light chocolate, toffee, dark bread, and light herbal. Nice and pleasant aromas with decent strength and balance; a bit too fruity, probably because of age. Taste of pear, caramel, butterscotch, toffee, toast, molasses, light chocolate, dark bread, and light herbal. Lingering notes of light fruit, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, toast, light chocolate, molasses, and herbal on the finish for a short bit. Solid balance of flavors with a fair amount of robustness; zero cloying sweetness on the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly slick and smooth mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost no warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice dunkel. A nice amount of flavors with good balance; very smooth to drink. A quite enjoyable dunkel offering.

Tastes like an off-batch. SMokey almost rubbery flavor dominates. Point has a tendency to fuck shit up.

madvike (2659) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle - Pours dark caramel with a medium tan head. Nose is toffee, dark bread, and a light milkiness. Pretty sweet. Taste is sweet toffee, cut with a mineral taste, light toasted dark bread, yeast. Finishes with a long toffee sweetness. A bit of baking spice. Pretty smooth in the mouth, with ample carbonation and a fluffed-up body. Too sweet for my tastes, and pretty bland overall.

umich03jm (1769) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Pours a mostly clear dark amber-brown color with almost no head. Aroma is somewhat faint, mostly nuts, chocolate, and roasted malt. Taste is decent, slight chocolate sweetness, nice bitterness, toasted bread in the finish. Nothing special but a decent dunkel.

12oz bottle pours darkish red/brown color. not opaque with off white head that lingered. the aroma is of slightly sweet roasted malts. no hop character at all. the flavor is of lightly roasted bready malts. doesnt taste like dunkels that i have had in the past,. average at best.
