This is a very mellow brew with a slightly sweet finish. Was the least impressive of the beers I drank last night at the Gordon Biersch Brewpub in the Arena district in ’Cow’lumbus; which is ironic, because I figured I’d like this one the most going in. It has a nice color and nice head retention. It didn’t hurt that I had this out of the tap. I thought it was a little on the thin side.

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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark cola coloured body with a frothy tan head, almost non-existant. Aroma of roasted malt, pit fruit, nuts and some raisins. Medium-bodied; Nice full roasty malt flavour with a good long-lasting pit fruit sweetness. Aftertaste lingers and lasts quite a while. Overall, a good overall dunkel-the best beer from the brewpub and recommended if anyone visits the facility. I sampled this on draught on 29-September-2004 at the brewpub on 9th & F in Washington, D.C.

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.

Tap@Gordon Biersch, Seattle. Pretty typical dunkel actually, failry authentic German style. Doughy, caramel and slightly toasty flavours. This is OK.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark wheat flavors, a bit of caramel roastiness, toasted maltiness, hazelnuts and just a bit of toffee. Very tame, and too light in body.

2-finegr rapidly disipitating head. Mild aroma. Clear, dark auburn color. Med mouthfeell. Tastes of light toasted malts, balanced light bitterness. Well carbonated. Too tame for my tastes.
