COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with a thick off-white head. Aroma of sweet malt, light fruits, bready malts. Flavor of roasted malt initially, some oaky notes, followed by the sweet malts. Definitely on the sweet side. It is an ok beer, but a little wearing for a whole glass. 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]

lamas (1372) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 13, 2011
22 oz. bottle. Best by: 03/15/11. A clear ruby red pour with a thick antique white head. A mildly sweet aroma of caramel, biscuity/bready/cereal maltiness, and a little spiciness. Thin to medium-bodied. The taste starts with some semi-sweet caramel and a cereal maltiness. A crisp middle with some biscuity qualities. A little grassiness and lemon at the end. Some mild spiciness and a hint of oak throughout. Not a whole lot going on taste-wise...just a solid and very sessionable brew.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 8, 2011
22oz bottle. Deep amber color - very little aroma here. Taste is very lacking as well, this isn’t even a good dunkel and I certaintly can’t tell it’s been aged on oak. Some vanilla and caramel flavors - overall a big disappointment for me.

Pour is clear ruddy amber with a nice big and dense tight khaki head...smell is mild with some bread dough and nuts...no oak yet...taste is sweet and malty with some caramel and chestnuts...maybe some bitterness from peanut skins...some roasty bitterness in the finish...meh...
