3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours brown in color with a 2 finger off-white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is nutty with hints of caramel and chocolate with some roasted and earthy notes as well. Taste is a roasted nutty and earthy bitterness balanced nicely with a caramel and chocolate malty sweetness. Lighter bodied than expected but with decent carbonation. An easier drinking dunkel that is quite tasty.

Bottle at home with friends. Pour is clear brown with a light red tint and frothy tan head - good lacing. Grainy, biscuity, slight roast, husky, cereal, grassy, and slightly fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, husky, grains, toasted cereal, grass, light cocoa, and straw. Light body with medium carbonation. Easy drinking stuff, but may not be at its freshest.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Clear copper brown with a pocked beige head. Nose is dough, raisin, nuts and, deep down, blackberry pie. Wow, this smells fantastic! Not quite medium body but i wouldn’t want it much heavier. Soft carb with a silky finish. Taste is subtle brown sugar, bitter almond and grass; cocoa powder and clove linger. Each sip is a dunkel revelation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
10 ounce sample on tap at The Horse Brass in Portland, OR. Aroma is a bit fruity with berry notes before it takes on a little toasted and roasted character. Dark amber transparent body with a light tan head and fair lacing. Very nice, roasted, slightly burnt and chocolatey malts to start. This is relatively full-bodied and nicely roasted. Pretty good stuff.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Man, everything I have from these guys so far has just knocked it out of the park, and this is no exception. Rosy brown pour with a thin filmy light tan head. Nose is toasted malt, a touch of milkiness, notes of burnt sugar, and just a hint of baking spice. The taste is a nice balance between toasted graham crackers and bread dough. Has a lingering medium bready roast flavor that lasts through the long finish. No hopping that I can taste, but that touch of milkiness is still there. A light body, but fluffed up with some ample carbonation. Excellent stuff--could drink in quantity.
