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.

A bit on the syrupy side. But it promises a lot more than it delivers. Like a thickened version of the marzen.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2002
A quality brew, would like more character, a little more hop than a german version but still a nice session brew.

auderale (605) - Minot, North Dakota, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Tap at Gordon Biersch/Honolulu: Sweet malty, caramely aroma with a nice sweet, lightly toasted malty finish. I liked this.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2003
Tempe, AZ. Cloudy dark brown color, decent head. Some malt and chocolate in the aroma. Malty flavor, but some weak vomit-like off-flavor, maybe from the yeast, that made this beer unenjoyable. Disappointing light mouthfeel. Not good.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 1, 2001
Even on tap at the brewery, this is at best an unremarkable dunkel. The flavors simply aren’t big and strong enough, and what flavors do come through aren’t too great. How could someone who went through the Weihenstepaner University of Brewing come out with no game?

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2004
On draft at the GB in Memphis. Delicious. Kind of like a baby double bock (but not a bock), nice malt, rich palate.

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2007
Draft sampler at Columbus brewpub. Sweet malty aroma, "light in texture"--no shit, thin malty flavor with some hop tang at the end.

(tap) Smooth. My first instinct was I was drinking nothing. But it really grew on me, a nice malty taste, a nice cloudy dark color. I had this, the Blonde Bock and the Marzen at the same time and this was clearly the best of the 3.

RaginCajun (320) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2004
This was one quality brew. The best Gordon Biersch I’ve had. Very dark red color with plenty of malt and hops to go around. Perhaps a little watered down, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.
