5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   For a Dunkel, it sure has a dark Amber color, reddish hints, very carbonated, moderate to light frothy off-white head, sparce lacing.   Pale cereal aroma, minor breadiness.   Just doesn’t come across as a Dunkel, but more of a bright Amber.   Quite cerealy on the tongue, very mealy.   Tiz pretty clean tho.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz smooth, clean on the exit, with lingering cereal like malts.   Its okay, certainly easy to put back, but very forgettable.   The biggest thing it has going for it is the fact that its fairly clean on the finish.   Seems well made, just not what I was thinking it was going to be.   Meh...

Pours a copper/amber color. Light aroma of caramel malt and floral earthy hops. The flavor was the same light sweetness with a nice moderate bitter finish.

Suttree (5928) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Thanks to decaturstevo for sharing this one. Seems fairly straight forward and tasty - Nicely grainy with a hint of rye. I could see this being a tasty session ale

TheBeerGod (5914) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown pour. Ruby highlights. Short white head. Aroma is caramel, grains, spicy hops and light earthy notes. Taste is big caramel, grains, spicy hops, earthy hops, light herbal notes and dried fruit. Body is medium with a soft but prickly carbonation. Ends with more caramel notes, toasted malt, dried fruit, spicy hops and earthy notes. Very tasty!

decaturstevo (5742) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 22, 2007
An aroma of brown sugar and malt. A deep copper brown pour. A sweet malt flavor and a sourish bitter finish. Good carbonation and decent mouthfeel. A good beer that the flavor follows the dark color quite well.

notalush (5669) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2009
12 ounce bottle - presumably a new batch of the original recipe - a very smooth, malt forward lager - medium body, with creamy, soft carbonation - very light bitterness makes way quickly for nutty, chocolaty malt sweetness - a tiny hint of tartness way in the back, and some drier, almost roasty notes - a touch of noble hop bitterness in the finish - quite sessionable, balanced, and clean - another underrated Full Sail product.

JK (5624) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Darker than most lagers. This one has some body and flavor. Some hop flavor and a grainy character. Good palate and goes down very well. Alcohol is a little high for a dunkel.

jgb9348 (5522) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 7, 2008
Deep ruby tinted strong golden/amber coloured body with a short tan head. Aroma of malt, a bit of hops, metal, funk and some cardboard - not very pleasant. Light-bodied; Sharp metallic tastes with a strong malt backbone and very minimal other tastes coming through. Aftertaste shows some raisins and pit fruits in the taste, but nothing too terribly pleasant - but still better than the normal taste! Overall, a pretty bad offering, all things considered. I couldn’t tell this was supposed to be a dunkel, it just didn’t taste good. I’m happy to try this, but I wasn’t happy with the quality of this one. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Goebel Liquor in Wichita, Kansas on 03-May-2008.

BuckeyeBoy (5480) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 10, 2007
12 oz Bottle, Pours out a goldish amber topped with a white head. Aroma of malt and not much else to write about this one. The whole limited edition LAGER had me fooled it is really a Dunkel???

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Bottle: Amber color, creamy head, a bit o lacing. Nose of light malt and toast, clean noble hops and a rich bran and rice husk note. The flavor is well bodied, clean and surprisingly toasty and flavorful for a lager. Nice sweet finish and kind of a fun idea.
