COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
is a full-bodied, malty beer. It is our only lager beer served unfiltered, the way all beer was traditionally made years ago. Despite its dark color and rich caramel aroma, Dunkles is light in texture and smooth to drink.

seymour (1323) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Tasted on tap at San Francisco brewpub in standard pint glass. Pours an opaque brown with unflitered yeast haze and vigorous beige head, good retention, little lace. Great malty-sweetness, balanced bitterness and some aroma hop. Tastes like toffee and brown sugar. Clean, smooth and delicious. I absolutely love this stuff! A hoppy, cloudy, fruity brown lager? If this were brewed to higher gravity, it could be one of the world’s greated beers.

yespr (29687) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2010
From tap at the brewpub in Palo Alto. Pours hazy dark brown with a small and solid tan head. Aroma is mild vegetable and dark roasted malty. Flavour is dark malty, breaidh and roasted flavoured. Light bitterness and mild acidic roasted note. Dry and dark malty finish. Far from the origins.

Butters (3686) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2009
On draft at the Miami location. Hazy plum brown with good near white head. Nice wheaty sweet banana cream with dark sweetness. Flavor is complex, ranging from banana to even chocolate notes! There are some hints of bandaid and antiseptic, but it doesn’t ruin the flavor. There is some roastiness, semi-sweet and dry finish. The best GB beer I’ve had.

Tap at Gordon Biersch/Honolulu: Sweet malty, caramely aroma with a nice sweet, lightly toasted malty finish. I liked this.

Drjohnrock (427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Draft sampler at Columbus brewpub. Sweet malty aroma, "light in texture"--no shit, thin malty flavor with some hop tang at the end.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 3, 2007
Draft, consumed at Gordon Biersch Pasadena on 12/03/07. Slightly cloudy dark amber. Some bubbles still rising to form a thin skin of foam. Caramel maltiness in nose. Complex flavor of bread pudding. Aftertaste is agreeable, dry.

Clear and Dark. Very malty (something I like) with plenty caramel notes. Very Nice.

pinkzambia (1395) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Tap: Brown color and not quite clear accompanied by a nice light brown head. The aroma was earthy like peat moss with a well-balanced flavor. The aftertaste seemed to be just right, not too sweet. Out of the ones I had, this one is the only one I might consider having seconds.

Nive copper brown color draft, there is a touch of caramel in the arma. The flavor is pretty mellow and malty. Bland mild finish. meh.

dark brown, big tan head, slight floral hop aroma, rich malt flavor, good dose of chocolate malt, touch of bitterness only after it warms, too one dimensional

toasted malt aroma, good rich chocolate flavor with perfect sweetness and the light character of the wheat, a benchmark dunkle as would be expected from the controlled GB brewery
