12oz bottle poured into glass. Never been keen on this style but I decided to give it a go. Easy drinking and mostly malt forward, both in the flavor and aroma. Nothing stood out to me though.

Not a bad dunkel, but not nearly the best either. Pours a brownish red. Can see very little light. Very small head that reveals some modest lacing down the glass. Gone quickly though. Smells like brown sugar, malt and hops. Nothing special in the aroma. Taste is a bit bitter and not very balanced to me.

This is a pretty decent dunkel. Dark fruit, especially raisin in the flavor, some caramel and licorice. Pours dark brown, slightly reddish. Tried with Kristin at the brewery in 2007.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler pour into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium brown with a half finger white head. Ok head retention and lacing for being out of a growler.
Aroma of roasted malt and toast. Some caramel is evident along with grassy hops and dark fruit.
The flavor is much like the aroma although has much more depth. Toast and roasted malt is very prominent up front but there is a nice grassy hop backbone. Biscuit and vanilla are underneath along with some dark fruit and a little bit of wood. Mouthfeel is crisp and somewhat drying without the least hint of cloying sweetness.
Overall, I really like this beer. A great thirst quencher with plenty of flavor. This is nicely done by Harpoon and is probably my favorite beer from them that I have tried so far.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a dark amber with a medium beige head that quickly diminishes leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a bready malt, raisin, and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet toast caramel and chocolate with lingering dry finish. A good dunkel from Harpoon.

Dark brown black with thin off white lacing. Burnt toast and roasted nut aromas. Palate is low on carbonation, malty and smooth with roasted nut, coffee and nutty flavors.

bottled, vellveety brown color with strong tan foam, aroma is husky chocolate leading to possibly a pretty good dunkel, but flavor cant hold up to aroma and is more chalky short flavored notes of malt and roast
