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.

tap at the vegas location. first off, this wasnt a very dunkel dunkel. a dark amber color this was more reminiscent of that sytle than a dunkel. head was thin and creamy. aroma was malty with hints of chocolate, and the flavor had just enough chocolate to make you realize it was there, but not enough to actually contribute to the flavor. a medium body and a sweet aftertaste made this one of the better brews at GB.

Draught at Gordon Biersch, Las Vegas Aroma was a little malty with a hint of toast. Appearance was a dark red to drown, not quite as dark as the menu showed it. The head was small but lingered, carbonation was soft. It had a nice malty sweet flavor some dark fruit. I found it a very drinkable beer.

Draught, Atlanta location. Clear red-copper body with mild carbonation and a creamy off-white head. Appearance does not square with the "unfiltered" claim on the menu but I guess it could have settled. Munich malt aroma with dark bread crusts and black tea plus caramel. Flavor has more tea qualities and a prominent scorched sweet element like over-baked cookies. Instantly cloying and over-satiating. Insipid beer aimed at a beer clown’s palate.

A bit on the syrupy side. But it promises a lot more than it delivers. Like a thickened version of the marzen.

Dry, pale and rather flavorless at Gordon Biersch San Jose. I think their Marzen is better.

Pours brownish/ purple. Tiny head. No outstanding aroma or flavor going on. Light malt. No harsh flavors. Drinkable, but not overly enjoyable.

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.
