(Draft: Gordon Biersch Brewing Co. in San Diego, CA) Decent enough and enjoyable, I usually order 1 Dunkles each time I go to Gordon Biersch (where the meatloaf rocks BTW!); This medium bodied brew has a toasty, malty flavor as the main focus; It’s moderately sweet, lightly hoppy, mildly bitter, with a slight sourness toward the finish; Not much aroma, being just vaguely malty; Mahogany color; Tan head has average size on the pour, but fades to a thin sheen within a few minutes; Lots of interesting spiderweb lacing is left on the glass

Still my favorite in the lineup. Love the deep brown color. Wish the nose was bigger. Great German malt flavor that goes into the finish. The hops don't get in the way but there's plenty of bitter.

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.

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.
