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.

superspak (2215) - Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2012
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.

330 ml bottle in Margate , FL. Pours a dark chestnut brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, smoke and cherries. Taste us a watery version of the Aroma. Palate is mellow but watery.

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - JAN 30, 2014
Dark, no head, no lacing, thin, slightly metallic, no nose to speak of, mildly carbonated, flat taste with no evidence of what I would expect in a dunkel. Very disappointing.

Aroma of vanilla and roasted malt. Creamy texture on the palate. Moderate carbonation. Full bodied throughout. Finish is dry and pleasantly clean and bitter. Very nice brew.

johnnyoski (415) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown pour with a thin, fizzy head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Semi sweet malty flavor eventually fades to a somewhat bitter, cocoa finish. Watery texture with average carbonation. Good but expected a little more body, even for this style.

Mittenator (1096) - Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Draft at Bar 30 (from backlog). Pours a nice deep brown with a medium head. Slight aroma of grains and malt. Flavors are similar - thin and quickly dissipate. Grainy and thin mouthfeel. Not so good.
