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.

On tap at the Las Vegas location. Very dark amber (almost brown) in colour with medium carbonation. Caramel-toffee sweetness on the nose, with a bit of toasted malt. More toasted malt and toffee in the mouth as well, along with a bit of acidity and roasted nuts. A bit too light bodied, but overal it’s a solid impression of the style. The best of their beers that I sampled.

dark, not black though, maybe some purple in it with an off white head that is moderate. Smells much like fresh veggies and some nuts, nutty organic taste to it.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2003
Cloudy dark red. Sweet malt, roasty hops and fruit in the nose. The body is sweet and malty with light hops in the middle. Dries out really quick.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2003
Sampled at the Oakville location. Chestnut brown. Tan head. Aroma of caramel, honey, & bread. Thin-medium body. Some bread-like dark malt flavours. Moderately hoppy finish w/ hint of alcohol. Overall, however, flavours are a little watery & bland.

Tap: Brown color and not quite clear accompanied by a nice light brown head. The aroma was earthy like peat moss with a well-balanced flavor. The aftertaste seemed to be just right, not too sweet. Out of the ones I had, this one is the only one I might consider having seconds.

When I first saw it I thought it was a porter. But with it's light taste I knew it was a lager. Nice brown color with a good tan head. Light and smooth. Not a bad beer.

Tasted on tap at San Francisco brewpub in standard pint glass. Pours an opaque brown with unflitered yeast haze and vigorous beige head, good retention, little lace. Great malty-sweetness, balanced bitterness and some aroma hop. Tastes like toffee and brown sugar. Clean, smooth and delicious. I absolutely love this stuff! A hoppy, cloudy, fruity brown lager? If this were brewed to higher gravity, it could be one of the world’s greated beers.

jefcon (1380) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - AUG 19, 2004
Not that bad aromas of malt and some chocolate, but the watery nature of the beer in the glass translates to a watery palate. A weak contender -- maybe I just don’t care for the style.

Didn’t like the aftertaste. Otherwise moderately good. Dunkles? You can still see light shining through...

A nice American take on a German standard. A good Dunkel. Nice and flavorful but still thin and clean. A great Dunkel. Even better on tap.
