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.

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JAN 18, 2005
on tap @ San Diego. As nice as that head looks on the beer in the picture that wasn’t how mine was served. Mine had almost no head but still looked appetizing. I found it somewhat sweet of chocolate and of malt. Maybe it was just me but i tasted as if some orange and tea was there as well.?.?. The next few days i kept thinking how much i wanted another glass of this but i have’nt gone back yet.

licorish aroma. Unfiltered and light on alcohol. Medium chewy roast flavour. Less aggressive carbonation used. Apple, lemony and lots of malt. Sour finish

A good attempt at a dunkle. I liked this one alot, but it had a mild aftertaste that i found rather annoying. Fairly smooth with a decent body.

jgb9348 (4659) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2004
Dark cola coloured body with a frothy tan head, almost non-existant. Aroma of roasted malt, pit fruit, nuts and some raisins. Medium-bodied; Nice full roasty malt flavour with a good long-lasting pit fruit sweetness. Aftertaste lingers and lasts quite a while. Overall, a good overall dunkel-the best beer from the brewpub and recommended if anyone visits the facility. I sampled this on draught on 29-September-2004 at the brewpub on 9th & F in Washington, D.C.

Sampled draught at Gordon Biersch, Las Vegas
Hazy mahogany with average head & lacing. Nose of celery & cabbage, loads of DMS. Tastes lightly sweet with notes of dark chocolate & dark fruits. Oily creamy finish but balanced.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 5, 2004
(Draft: Gordon Biersch Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA) Decent enough and enjoyable, I usually order 1 Dunkles each time I go to Gordon Biersch (where the meatloaf rocks BTW!); This medium bodied brew has a toasty, malty flavor as the main focus; It’s moderately sweet, lightly hoppy, mildly bitter, with a slight sourness toward the finish; Not much aroma, being just vaguely malty; Mahogany color; Tan head has average size on the pour, but fades to a thin sheen within a few minutes; Lots of interesting spiderweb lacing is left on the glass
