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.

Draught. Medium brown. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted light bread, nutty, caramel), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of plum and orange. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - JUL 2, 2002
One of the most unusual beers I’ve had in a while. It had several flavor stages, one I didn’t care for somewhat like a chemical taste, but the carmel and malt flavors were quite good.

Decent enough Dunkel. Brownish/Amber in color. Small Beige head. Sweet caramel aroma with hints of spices. Sweet start. Top was thin. Finish was smooth with little bitterness.

Didn’t like the aftertaste. Otherwise moderately good. Dunkles? You can still see light shining through...

Aurelius (4178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2004 (Atlanta) Grainy and worty aroma. Ruddy, deep tea color without a whole lot of head. Not too hoppy. Flavor was slightly tart, leaning towards the bready. Re-rated, 3/22/04 Miami: Fruity and somewhat musty malt aroma similar to what I associate with Kolsch. Good mahogany brew, good house glassware. Fairly sweet, somewhat tart, medium bittering - which is a combination of hops and malt, light diacetyls and caramel, very light phenols. Good mouthfeel and body, light astringency.

Rich and dark with notes of carmel and coffee.Very smooth finish.

aracauna (3084) - Georgia, USA - APR 12, 2002
Completely unimpressive. Ok flavor, but thin. Sweet opening a little cloying with a little lemony citrous middle , finish a little bitter. Gordon Biersch seems to worry more about making pretty beers than tasty beers.

Very nice appearance - dark and goes down smooth. Not bitter at all.

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2002
Dark yet light-bodied, and I had no problems driking a huge mug of this. Had a nice aftertaste that didn’t wear thin. Surprisingly smooth considering there is no filtration involved.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2002
This mahogany colored dunkel is small headed and emanates a feint malt aroma. Bland, nondistinct flavoring drags this beer down--too bad as it appears flavorful. Nonetheless, this is a smooth brew, with exceptional refreshment potential--great to drink cold.
