ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 23, 2009
On tap at brewhouse. Poured dark brown in appearance with a little head. Smell is cocoa with a coffee and caramel scent as well. The flavor is fruity and malty with a soft smoked presence. Crisp and dry.

had this in framingham massachusetts on tap. Not a very nutty and toasty dunkel, perhaps a bad batch.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 25, 2005
On tap in Framingham. Dark brown with reddish tints, medium off-white head. Mostly malt in the aroma, but sweet and roasted hints as well. Medium body, not the level of roast and smoke I like in the dunkel style, more sweet and bland if anything. Mostly dry finish. Not worst place.

ClarkVV (5857) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 14, 2005
On draught at Framingham, 3/12/05. Dark brown/mahogany color, though more dull than that sounds. Foamy, beige head and an aroma of clean yeast, ginger root and light hops. Flavor is dull, ashen and astringently spicy. No malt sweetness, or very little of it. Watery consistency. The heavy, dry spicing covers up any crisp lager bite you would expect.

Cask, Cambridge 2005: Dark orange color, small head. Plums, raisons and cinnamon in nose and taste - but very blend. Grainy aftertaste.
