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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 9, 2004
Sampled draught at Gordon Biersch, Las Vegas
Hazy mahogany with average head & lacing. Nose of celery & cabbage, loads of DMS. Tastes lightly sweet with notes of dark chocolate & dark fruits. Oily creamy finish but balanced.

From tap at the brewpub in Palo Alto. Pours hazy dark brown with a small and solid tan head. Aroma is mild vegetable and dark roasted malty. Flavour is dark malty, breaidh and roasted flavoured. Light bitterness and mild acidic roasted note. Dry and dark malty finish. Far from the origins.

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.

jefcon (1359) - 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.

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 7, 2003
Sampled on tap at the brewery in San Jose.
This beer is unfiltered, so it is quite cloudy. It is a reddish brown color, and has a thin tan head. Quite fruity smelling. It is lightly astringent in the finish and has quite a bit of diacetyl as well as a malty backbone, which is nice. Ultimately the diacetyl in the background distracts from this beer.

DanielBrown (3716) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2004
On tap at Gordon Biersch, Mission Valley, San Diego. Chocolate brown, translucent colouring. Thin topping of spaced-out lacing man. Smells a bit like plastic and marzipan - not the most pleasant combination in the World. A fairly pleasant taste, but tinged with a certain oddness, as per the aroma. Choc and cream on the whole, perhaps like bourbon biscuit or a donut. Fairly strong on the finish. Only OK.

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.

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?

Draft Las Vegas Restaurant-No carboantion or aroma. Had the taste of old malt and stale beer. Not to pleasant.
