3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Very dark reddish brown color with a medium, foamy and tanned head. Chocolatey, burned-malty aroma with caramel. Roasted-malty flavor with some fruitiness, ashy finish, and a lingering, mildly syrupy-sweet aftertaste. Medium-bodied, quite thick and smooth-carbonated palate. A reasonably interesting, drinkable and well-balanced dunkel.

Pours dark brown with a lasting off white head. Has a nice malty flavor. A very nice Dunkel to drink at the local pub.

Dunkel Lite, perhaps? Nonetheless, this is a solid yet subtle example of the Dunkel style. Very drinkable- slight molasses in the finish with a light carbonated mouthfeel throughout. A good session Dunkel, if there ever was one. Recommended.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thin slightly yellowish head. Very dark brown nody with a deep red when held up to the light. The aroma is typical for the style with some bubblegum and corn. Also hints of roasted nuts. The mouthfeel is medium and slick. this has some roasted notes along with pears. There are definitely cherries in the aftertaste. A little too sweet. A very solid dunkel.

One of my favorite beers to order, when a bar has it. I like the way this one looks, tasteas, and feels. Not the best dunkel out there, but a good standy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meek Austrian dunkel. Might make a decent dessert beer paired with, say, fruit cake. It poured a deep mahogany with a large head and good lacing. Rich aromas of treacle, chocolate and malt. The palate is dry, firm and nutty. Some chocolate notes. It’s a fair dunkel but there are far better out there. (Bottle)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a grainy German scent with hints of dark fruit. Flavor is mostly nutty with a slight dark malt flavor that I wanted more of. Seems lacking of a dark dunkel flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Bottle pours deep brown, hues of mahogany, large frothy off-white head, with clingy lacing. Aroma of grainy malts, green tea, tobacco, and soft coffee beans. Good toasted malt flavor up front, slightly nutty. Decent body and mouthfeel. Finishes fairly clean, smooth toasted malt taste. Simple, but not bad at all!
