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.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 26, 2004
On tap in Hawaii. Dark brown in color with an averaged sized tan head. Nutty, roasted and malty smells and tastes. This was my 1st Dunkel style and it wasn’t that bad (I liked it more than other Gordon Biersch Beers).

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

Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2002
Dark yet light-bodied, and I had no problems driking a huge mug of this. Had a nice aftertaste that didn’t wear thin. Surprisingly smooth considering there is no filtration involved.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2003
Draft. Oakville Darker amber, more head than the rest. Slightly tan head, with hints or roasted flavour. Better mouthfeel than the rest, but a bit on the thin side. This and their Hefeweizen were the best offerings I thought.

shrubber85 (7609) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUN 10, 2006
Tap. Maple syrup and malt aroma. Medium brown color with small head. Molasses/maple syrup and moderate malt flavor. NIce flavor but like their Weizen, a bit weak. If they could get more body, they’d really have some great beers.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2002
Draft at the Las Vegas brewpub; Very dark red with chocolate foam head. Hearty but not overly heavy. Roasty taste. Adheres well to the glass. True to the German dunkles.

PorterPounder (5557) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2005
On tap at the downtown Atlanta location. Pours a dark copper with a creamy, frothy thick white head. Aroma has hints of toffee, a smidgen of chocolate and a back end of citrus. Flavor is very pronounced with some caramel, chocolate, and a bit of citrusy hoppiness. The back end is dominated by a teriyaki-like smokiness that is interesting and enjoyable. Somewhat chewy mouthfeel. Very decent.
