Our Oak Aged Dunkel is brewed using traditional German ingredients and aged on American Oak. The brew itself is highlighted by Munich malt, Tettnang hops, and German Ale yeast, resulting in a clean, earthy flavor. After primary fermentation is complete, we transfer the beer to a secondary aging vessel containing oak infusion spirals. These oak spirals contribute subtle,woody sweetness and vanilla notes. The wood complements the malt character and adds a layer of complexity to the delicate, herbal hops. The result is a pleasing, drinkable autumn beer. The best place to enjoy this beer is during the winter, next to a roaring fire, along with a bratwurst. This beer was brewed by Gabe Allen-Fahlander, Harpoon brewer BEER SPECIFICATIONS Style: Oak Aged Dunkel Original Gravity: 15.2 Alcohol by Volume: (ABV) 5.7% IBU’S: 30 Color (EBC): 74

22 oz bomber. Pours a deep yet clear mahogany with a medium sized cream colored head. Aroma of nuts, dry tree branches, malt, toffee and a hint of faint citrus. Taste of nuts, malt, wood and faint toffee.

Pours dark brown color like dark maple syrup. Some alcohol aromas mixed with a touch of woodsy cedar and dried fruit. Immediate dry fruit flavor profile that finishes with a lingering toasted malt aftertaste. Dry finish as well. Overall, I have to say I dig it. I’ll be purchasing more...

This beer pours a deep ruby red/brown with a medium off-white head that dissipates quickly. The aromas are coffee, milk chocolate,. The mouthfeel is watery with a bitterness and a medium body. This was a good beer but not great. Cheers!

Pours deep mahogany into a stem glass. Off-white head with good retention slowly recedes leaving spot lacing. Caramel and oak aromas. Sweet, dry caramel and marshmallow upfront turning earthy and oaky in the medium length finish.

shocked I am the second to review this, seems like harpoon gets their stuff into texas a LOT faster than other breweries do, thanks Harpoon. Pours a dark dark brown, with about a finger of head. nice color on this, looks nice. The nose carries a lot of vanilla, chili peppers for some reason, and some caramel malt. tastes nothing like the nose, I do pick up the tiniest bit of oak in it, but thats about it, oak aged may be a bit of a stretch... at least on the palate. Nothing else really in there, a bit of roasted dark malts, and a bit of a bitter finish. The more I drink it the more I get the oak, or rather, the more it warms. not too bad, wish it had more of an oak flavor in it...

cereal, nuts, leather, ginger, brown, clear, minimal head, lightly bitter, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, A very light dunkel, not really anything special considering there’s more body to a mass-produced dunkelweizen. Certainly not worth the single bottle price.

Nutty aroma with some roasted malt and mild caramel. Flavor is very nutty and well balanced. The malt profile is somewhat roast with an oakey flavor (imagine that). Beautiful brownish color with weak head and decent lacing. Overall one of the better 100 barrels.
