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.

This was one quality brew. The best Gordon Biersch I’ve had. Very dark red color with plenty of malt and hops to go around. Perhaps a little watered down, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

Pretty good. Ranks up with the Marzen. Rediish brown with frothy head that stuck around. Slightly sweet, clean with decent bitterness for the style. Some nutty and tiny hoppy notes cam through as I exhaled after each sip.

bender (293) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2003 On tap Dark red-brown leather body with a thick off white head. Nice lacing. Lagers have such great color!
Lots of toasted maltiness in the aroma. Smells much more substantial than what is really in the glass.
Taste is of a dunkel but thin. Roastiness comes through in the taste a little more than the malt. Not much bitterness to note.
Very smooth on the palate.

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.

tightslice (235) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle from Safeway in Los Altos, CA. Aroma is malted cola, roasted malts. Taste is a creamy cola which has been watered down by melted ice. Not incredibly complex but definitely one of the better GB beers I’ve had.
