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.

Still my favorite in the lineup. Love the deep brown color. Wish the nose was bigger. Great German malt flavor that goes into the finish. The hops don't get in the way but there's plenty of bitter.

This is an evenly balanced beer with a dark malty start and a mild hop finish. No real complexity here and perhaps a little watery, but this dunkles will do the deal if you just want a dark beer for a relaxing moment.

Quality dark beer. A little too much hops bitterness is my one knock (I'm a confessed Hops-Sally, however). Though when Gordon's blonde bock is unavailable in the restaurant, I'm a sure thing for a nice frothy pint o' the Dunkles.

I had a couple of these off the tap two weeks ago in DC. Surprised me greatly, with a good body and nice aftertaste.
