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.

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.

fiulijn (16462) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 14, 2006
Draught at the brewpub in Las Vegas
Dark amber color. Aroma of caramel. Caramel taste, much more… full and round than a classic German. Not enough hopping.

bhensonb (12595) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2014
750 Swingtop from Bine and Vine. Pours cola color with a beige head - though with lots of light behind it, it’s dark ruddy copper. Warm dark malt aroma. Med body, maybe. Flavor is lightly chocolate, a little darkly malty. Maybe a bit yeasty in the finish. Not much bitter in it. Enough flavor to make it an interesting beer.

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

more complexity, notes of toasted malt

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

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Draft... The aroma was slightly sweet and spicy. Something like cinamon. Can’t place it. Also, soapy water in the nose. Maybe they had just washed the glass. Clear, dark mohogany. Foamy, big, off-white head. Malty, but not sweet. Well balanced. A touch fruity. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Finishes clean and dry. Very good beer. The restaurant in DC needs to rinse their glasses better. Dish soap ruins what is otherwise a very nice nose.
