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.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2006 Draft... The aroma was slightly sweet and spicy. Something like cinamon. Can’t place it. Also, soapy water in the nose. Maybe they had just washed the glass. Clear, dark mohogany. Foamy, big, off-white head. Malty, but not sweet. Well balanced. A touch fruity. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Lively carbonation. Finishes clean and dry. Very good beer. The restaurant in DC needs to rinse their glasses better. Dish soap ruins what is otherwise a very nice nose.

Quality dark beer. A little too much hops bitterness is my one knock (I'm a confessed Hops-Sally, however). Though when Gordon's blonde bock is unavailable in the restaurant, I'm a sure thing for a nice frothy pint o' the Dunkles.

Draught at Gordon Biersch, Las Vegas Aroma was a little malty with a hint of toast. Appearance was a dark red to drown, not quite as dark as the menu showed it. The head was small but lingered, carbonation was soft. It had a nice malty sweet flavor some dark fruit. I found it a very drinkable beer.

Cybercat (3331) - Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Appearance is a lovely cloudy brown with a rich head. Aroma is smoky and malty with a yeasty overtone. The lively flavor is rich, malty and smoky. This beer has an edge to it, but it goes down well with some yeastiness in the aftertaste. A good beer to finish a drinking session or to come after dinner.

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.

(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.

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.

licorish aroma. Unfiltered and light on alcohol. Medium chewy roast flavour. Less aggressive carbonation used. Apple, lemony and lots of malt. Sour finish
