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.

superspak (2468) - 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.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance was a dark brown color with a one finger of off white foaminess that bled to a light lacing. The smell had some cinnamon, breadiness, light raisin backed up by some light caramel malts. The taste was mainly sweet through the previously mentioned flavors. On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was pretty subdued and good to me. Overall, I say this was a pretty good Munich Dunkel to have again.

ARH (337) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a toasted cinnamon raisin bread with light caramel nuts and a touch of cola. It pours a hazy caramel color with a tan, fuzzy, spotty head that retains a medium - light ring, but it leaves a clean glass. The taste is a medium high sweetness, with a touch of bitterness.The beer is somewhere between thin and oily with a light grainy texture with a medium body and a light fuzzy carbonation. A sweet caramel cola note comes on strong at the finish with supporting raisin and spice flavors at the finish. The aftertaste is dry and toasty bread with some raisin. The aftertaste is medium in strength, but relatively short.

574deadzone (997) - North Central, Indiana, USA - APR 29, 2014
Pours dark brown with ruby edging and a finger-width of beige head that leaves no lace behind. Nose involves spicy cinnamon raisin bread, cocoa, nuttiness, and sourdough yeast. Somewhat sweet, fairly bitter. Light to medium bodied, fairly oily, active, with a meaty lager yeast finish. Good brew, well constructed, and though not complex, certainly nuanced and agreeable.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - APR 26, 2014
Rated on 01-13-2012 (Bottle) This beer has a small off-white head that has a long retention, copper transparent body, very fizzy carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is toasty malt and light hops. The flavor is light bitter hops and roasted malt. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is light bodied. This beer does not have much character to it and no WOW factor. The flavor is very light and mild.

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.
