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.

piscator34 (1996) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 19, 2006
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.

Sweet. Aromas of chocolate and caramel, very tasty but thin palate. Good session beer.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a very light brown/dark copper color with an amazingly huge billowy off white head. The head has a great level of retention, slowly fading to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – A big caramel and brown sugar aroma are the bulk of the smell. These are mixed with some nice roasted malt and toasted aromas as well as a little bit of a nutty smell. Rounding out all these is a very light earthy and herbal hop as well, creating a very pleasant aroma overall. Taste – The taste begins with a sweet brown sugar and caramel flavor with a little bit of a toasted malt and a light grainy taste. The grain and malt are very light, largely being dominated by the sweeter flavors of the brew, which intensify even more after the initial taste with some other sweet flavors of a cola and molasses nature coming to the tongue. A little bit of a nut flavor develops right after the initial taste, with it then fading away toward the end due to the advent of the cola and molasses. Just a hint of herb is mixed into the taste leaving one with a very sweet, lightly roasted, and thin flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite thin with a carbonation level that is high. A thicker body would have certainly been better for accentuating the roasted and nut flavors of the brew and would have made it a bit less cloying. Overall – A little too sweet in darker sugar flavors with not quite enough malt and roast to really support the sweet. A bit sweetly unbalanced.

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.

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.

seymour (1478) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2011
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.

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.
