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.

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.

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.

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.

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

A decent beer, nothing too special, but smooth and tasty. Pours a beautiful ruby red with a thick white head. Smells malty, maybe a bit of marzipan. Taste is creamy, sort of empty upfront, with some coffee and toffee coming in, and a lingering sweetness on the tongue. Had in the bottle.

This is a dark brown beer with a soft white head. It has a definite organic smell--kinda grassy. The taste is also grassy with some nuts mixed in there. This is the best beer available at Gordon Biersch in my opinion, but there are definitely better brews out there."

Quite tasty, despite being overwhelmingly disappointed with my Biersch visit. Probably wouldn’t order any of the Biersch offerings after trying the sampler platter in Las Vegas.

on tap GB: good looking beer, dark brown with large tan head in a nice GB glass. malt nose, mostly roasted malt character. pretty good all around dunkles, only had about 3 of this style so not much to compare to.

Oscbert (1105) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 3, 2014
~Malty aroma, bready, light roast, sweet caramel, wood. ~Pours a brownish mahoghany hazy color with lasting creamy off white head. ~Sweet bready flavor with caramel and light roastiness. Well balanced. ~Light medium bodied with high CO2, lasting sweet bready roasty finish. ~Excellent balanced drinkable beer. Would have no problem drinking a few of these.
