This is a very fine dunkel! Pours a rich, dark brown body with a hearty frothy head that stays with the brew a long time. Hints of roasted malt and caramel are both smelt and tasted; followed up with a light, crisp hit of bitter hops that’s just right!

Copper color with hints of ruby red. Sweet malts in the nose with a touch of toffee and subtle hops. Big toasted bread flavor with a caramel like sweetness. Munich malts dominate with a mild hop presence at the end. Semi dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5L bottle, pours clear mahogany brown with a stable brownish head. Strong nose of German fennel spiced bread. Spicy taste, full and not bland. Aroma of spices, toasted malts and black bread, tasty. Sweet taste with a light bitter finish. Light texture, medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth and easy to drink. I suppose this will be perfect with pretzels and other Bavarian bakery. Another nice surprise from HB!

Io vi dirò che lo stile Dunkel, è uno dei miei preferiti. Bel colore, buon aroma tra la frutta e la tostatura, e anche in bocca mi soddisfa.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

On tap at Bierhaus NYC. Pours a muddy, shiny reddish brown with moderate off-white head. Aroma has notes of chocolate syrup, tootsie roll, and yeast. Flavor is rich of tootsie roll with cascade hops. A surprising alcohol bite. Enjoyable.
